Diagnostic Assessment: This is generally accomplished during the initial meeting, though may be broken up over two separate meetings. Careful assessment is important in beginning treatment. Evaluations typically last 60-90 minutes. You will be asked about current symptoms, past treatment, and your psychosocial history. At the end of the evaluation, diagnoses and recommendations for treatment will be discussed. The therapist and client will collaborate on treatment goals, which will be outlined in a treatment plan. The treatment plan will include: presenting issues, goals and objectives, interventions and strategies, and an approximate time frame for completing treatment goals.
Individual Therapy: Treatment for anxiety, depression and other disorders is typically conducted on a once a week basis. CBT is the preferred treatment for many anxiety and depressive disorders. Process experiential therapy (emotion focused therapy) and dialectical behavioral therapy techniques also provide important tools in the treatment of depression, loss, grief, and adjustment issues.
Marital/Couples/Supportive Family Therapy: Treatment is aimed at helping couples and families work on improving interpersonal effectiveness, improving communication skills, becoming more emotionally connected, becoming more cooperative, and working through crises.
Group Therapy: Dialectical Behavioral therapy group (adolescent and adult), anger management, positive impact parenting skill-building group, healing and growth and social anxiety skills building group. Please email or call for more information on when these groups meet.
Treatment sessions: 45-60 minutes. The average length of treatment is 10-20 sessions. “Booster” sessions are available for patients who have completed treatment but would like periodic check-ins to help maintain their gains.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment: Some patients require more frequent sessions than standard outpatient treatment. Intensive outpatient therapy for two to three weeks may be beneficial for patients experiencing an exacerbation in symptoms. Following this intensive therapy program, patients would return to normal weekly therapy.
