Goals of Treatment In difficult times a professional counselor or psychologist can give the necessary advice and perspective to provide relief from job stress, relationship difficulties, and even serious mental health problems. Counselors are trained to listen well, provide sound advice, and recommend the best treatment or course of action to help patients get through traumatic events and rough patches in life.
Emphasis on short-term treatment to help individuals and families to manage their problems and live in the community. This includes individual therapy/counseling, family therapy/counseling, group therapy, assessment, and crisis intervention. Learn how traumatic events affect our well being and how counseling treatments significantly reduce the impact of trauma.
Individual therapy is a form of therapy in which the client is treated one-on-one with a therapist. Together, the client and therapist explore and identify goals for treatment. Areas of concern can include depression, grief and loss, anxiety, relationship stressors, employment challenges, and past traumas. Working individually with a therapist can help you feel comfortable enough to talk openly about things in your life that are distressing or are interfering with your everyday activities.
All too often, our challenges are not resticted to just ourselves. We have spouses, children, or other family members who we are struggling to communicate with. Family and couples counseling allows multiple parties to speak together with a licensed professional to identify common areas of conflict and pain and then move forward to a healthy relationship where all parties feel more success in working together. Issues may include divorce, domestic violence, anger issues, parenting conflicts, career transitions, infidelity/pornography concerns, rebellious behavior, and school issues.
