We often need the emotional and moral support of others in order to progress in various treatment programs–whether that is an addiction, a mental health disorder, or even working through our own grief. Group counseling helps you to know that you are not alone in your unique circumstances.
A peer support is someone who has gone through their own individual counseling and treatment plan, and then because of their positive experience, they want to support another person on their road to recovery. They can help you by drawing from their own experiences with counseling and grief and provide an emotional support for you to confide in.
Our Treatment Methods
Every person learns differently, and that's why we offer several different treatment methods. Your counselor will help you determine the best treatment plan for your individual circumstances and may use a combination of these treatment methods to help along the way.
Sometimes people need medication to help them manage the symptoms of a mental illness or addiction disorder. Mental illnesses and addictions can be the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, which is why medication is often prescribed for people facing these challenges. Our psychiatric prescribers can provide a diagnosis and prescribe medication to help you with your treatment.
DBT is an effective therapy for many disorders. The goal is to help you learn skills to transform negative thoughts and bad habits into positive and productive outcomes.
When working with children, it can be difficult for them to express their emotions and experiences naturally. During play therapy, our therapists play with children, usually ages three through eleven, to help them express their feelings in a self-guided, self-healing way.
EMDR is often used to help people heal from the symptoms of traumatic life experiences and emotional distress. Your counselor may ask you to recall distressing memories, and then they will direct you to perform a specific task like moving your eyes side to side or tapping your hand. These tasks can help dampen traumatic memories.
MRT is often used as a treatment method to help rehabilitate individuals and reduce their chances of falling back into old habits. This treatment helps the client to increase their moral reasoning through a series of steps like confronting current beliefs and reinforcing positive behaviors.
CBT is a common therapy used for mental health disorders. Our counselors might use CBT to help their patients develop positive coping strategies for depression, stress, anxiety, or addictions. It challenges and changes unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors to improve clients’ emotions and behaviors.
Our therapists are skilled and experienced in helping people who have experienced traumatic events. Trauma therapy is expertly focused on helping people process their experiences and emotions delicately and with empathy.
