At some point in our lives, we all face situations that overwhelm us:
- Striving to balance work and family
- Grieving the loss of a loved one
- Understanding our child’s behavior
- Surviving a traumatic event
- Struggling with a relationship
- Caring for a loved one
Our counseling services for adults offer a variety of treatment approaches to address individual and family life difficulties and emotional disorders for people 18 years of age or older. We individualize therapy to meet the unique needs of each person and/or family.
We will begin with an initial assessment. Other available services include: Psychological Evaluations; Psychiatric Evaluations; Medication Management; Individual, Family, and Marital Counseling; and Group Counseling.
Our treatment model builds upon the individual’s and/or family’s strengths. Each client is actively encouraged to participate in the development of his/her individualized treatment plan, which lists goals and objectives that will guide the direction of treatment. We also offer faith-based counseling.
For more information about our counseling services or to schedule an appointment, please contact Client Registration at 267.404.5847 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will ask you several questions to evaluate your issue and develop treatment recommendations. You will be asked to help write your treatment plan, which will list your personal goals and the steps you agree to take to reach these goals.
At times, psychological testing is recommended by your mental health professional to better understand your issue, or the testing may be requested by other programs to determine your eligibility for those services.
During this evaluation, the doctor will ask questions about your issue and the symptoms you have been experiencing. Medication may be prescribed as part of your treatment. You will be provided with information about each medicine prescribed, including benefits and possible side effects.
You will be asked to schedule regular 15-minute visits with a psychiatrist after you start taking medication. Your doctor will want to know if the medication has been helpful and if you are experiencing any side effects.
Individual, Family, and Marital Counseling
Treatment can be one-on-one with a mental health professional, marriage counseling with your significant other, or family counseling involving everyone from your family in treatment. A combination of treatments may be recommended.
Your mental health professional may recommend attending a group with others working on similar issues. Groups offer education and the opportunity to problem-solve with suggestions and feedback from other group members.
