Individual counseling and therapy
Professional therapy and counseling are treatments that can improve your mental wellness. These treatments can help people who are experiencing emotional or behavior problems or a mental health disorder. Therapy is often used in combination with prescription medication for mental health disorders. Therapy will usually improve results achieved by medication alone. Therapy is more than just talking about your problems. Therapy can teach new ways to think about the situations that bother you. It can help you cope with feelings and situations. It can help with feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, shyness, and panic. It also can provide tools and skills to help fight low self-esteem and depression.
Couples counseling focuses on identifying conflicts within a relationship and deciding what changes are needed in the relationship and in the behavior of each partner, with the goal that both parties will feel satisfied with the relationship. Couples therapy involves learning how to communicate more effectively and how to listen more closely. Couples learn how to avoid competing with each other and to identify common life goals and how to share responsibilities within their relationship.
Child & Adolescent Counseling
Board-eligible Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners provide psychiatric evaluations or consultations for a variety of emotional and behavioral concerns. Following a comprehensive assessment the psychiatrist will discuss treatment options for your child or adolescent, including recommendations for therapy (individual, family, or group) and medication.
