Mental and Behavioral Health Services

Assessment and Diagnosis

Clinical assessment is a process through which a psychology professional evaluates a patient's psychological, emotional, and behavioral well-being through open dialogue and the use of inventories, assessments, and tests. The face-to-face interview helps to gain a rich understanding of emotions, behaviors, thoughts, coping strategies for dealing with life’s challenges, and personal strengths.  This comprehensive picture helps the clinician determine a diagnosis and suggest a course of treatment.

Treatment Planning

A treatment plan is an individualized, structured, and goal-oriented schedule of services with measurable objectives that promotes the maximum reduction of the recipient’s problem and restoration to the best possible functional level.

Individual Adult Therapy

Individual therapy is a process through which the patient works with the clinician one-on-one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

Child psychotherapy is the creation of a therapeutic relationship which is almost solely focused on the emotional and social well-being of the child. It differs from adult therapy is several important ways, especially that the focus on treatment is very forward-oriented. Language in child therapy may be largely non-verbal during activities such as unstructured play and therapeutic games.  Parents should expect goals such as building self esteem, improving communication skills, building stronger emotional repertoire, and improving emotional vocabulary.

Couples and Marital Therapy

Treatment is focused on identifying specific areas of conflict and aspects of their relationship they would like to change, and then develops a plan of action to improve each individual’s satisfaction and contentment.  Expect to explore how your individual backgrounds, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors may be impacting your relationship in both positive and negative ways. Immediate and pressing problems may be addressed while developing strategies for protecting and enhancing the long-term health and happiness of their relationship.

Substance Use Disorder Therapy

Treatment for substance use disorders focuses on motivating the individual to stop using drugs and alcohol and maintain abstinence.  Components of therapy include idenitfying the problem, establishing motivation for change, beginning changes of behavior, repairing damaged relationships with family and friends, building new relationships with people who do not use alcohol or drugs, and creating a recovery lifestyle.  Relapse prevention training teaches people how to identify their relapse triggers, how to cope with cravings, how to develop plans for handling stressful situations, and what to do if they relapse.

A legal process enabling couples who have decided to separate or end their marriage to work with their lawyers and, on occasion, other family professionals in order to avoid the uncertain outcome of court and to achieve a settlement that best meets the specific needs of both parties and their children without the underlying threat of litigation.
