Psychotherapy : Groups, individual, family

 

Psychotherapy is a general term for a way of treating mental and emotional disorders by talking about your condition and related issues with a mental health professional. It's also known as talk therapy, counseling, psychosocial therapy or, simply, therapy.

 

Psychotherapy can help alleviate symptoms caused by mental illness, such as hopelessness and anger, so that patient’s can regain a sense of happiness, enjoyment and control in their lives.
 

Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy. It helps families or individuals within a family understand and improve the way family members interact with each other and resolve conflicts.

Family therapy is often short term. The family attends one session a week, typically for three to five months. In general, anyone who wants to improve troubled relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Counseling for Children and Adolescents
We work with children and adolescents, and knows first-hand the tough problems they face, from low self-esteem, to family dysfunction, to school violence and gang warfare, issues that touch a broad range of kids. Issues that can break their spirits, splinter families and chip away at the well-being of our communities.

To help children and teenagers through the often fragile experience of adolescence, we offer tools designed specifically for pre-adolescent and adolescent needs. These reliable, efficient instruments can help counselor to identify problems and help guide patients toward appropriate assistance. These tools can help:

- Identify the root causes of potential problems early on
- Support emotional / behavioral evaluations
- Guide you in making appropriate referrals
- Provide easy-to-understand information to share with parents, teachers and others in the support network
- Meet the diverse needs of troubled and typical youth

Through psychotherapy sessions, patients may:
- Learn about the causes of their condition.
- Learn how to identify and change behaviors or thoughts that adversely affect one’s life.
- Explore relationships and experiences.
- Find better ways to cope and solve problems.
- Learn to set realistic goals to enhance life.

Psychoeducation focuses on teaching you — and sometimes family and friends — about your illness. Psychoeducation explores possible treatments, coping strategies and problem-solving skills for ones condition. One might learn about resources in their community, such as support groups or housing options. Patient’s can also learn about symptoms that might indicate a potential relapse so that they can take steps to get appropriate treatment.

Substance Abuse / Addiction Treatment ------>  COMING SOON  <---------

Addiction is a chronic illness like heart disease, high cholesterol or high blood pressure. People with these chronic diseases are prone to relapse. Because substance abuse affects many aspects of a person’s life, multiple forms of treatment are often required. For most, a combination of medication and individual or group therapy is most effective. Medications are used to control drug cravings and relieve severe symptoms of withdrawal. Therapy can help addicted individuals understand their behavior and motivations, develop higher self-esteem, and cope with stress. Other treatment methods may include hospitalization, therapeutic communities, and outpatient programs.

Addiction is a serious illness and can ruin health, finances, relationships and careers. The abuse of drugs and alcohol is a leading cause of preventable illness and premature death in out society. The importance of substance abuse treatment cannot be overstated, and fortunately many effective treatments are available

The first step to the road to recovery is recognition of the problem, but often this process is complicated by lack of understanding about substance abuse and addiction or denial. In these cases, the intervention of concerned friends and family often prompts treatment.
