Our counselor has worked in an inpatient behavioral health setting for more than 15 years, and has encountered a variety of mental health diagnoses which has provided him with an abundance of experience to offer clients. We utilize a variety of therapeutic models, including cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and elements of the person centered approach. At times we use origami, music, books, and other creative ideas to achieve our therapeutic goals.
Our services include:
We provide individual counseling for adults, adolescents, and children. Our counselor has a wealth of experience working with each of these populations. We provide evaluations, treatment planning, and ongoing counseling support.
We work with families to help parents and children build stronger relationships. When working with adolescents and children, our approach includes frequent consultation with parents to get a more complete view of how treatment is progressing and what is working. We also strive to help these families and individuals feel safe and provide an atmosphere where they can share their thoughts and feelings and do the important work that needs to be done.
We work with couples to create thriving, satisfying relationships by building better communication skills, conflict management skills, and other vital relationship skills. Our counselor has been trained and certified to use the Prepare and Enrich program to reach these important goals. This program provides printed materials and a solid structure to keep this work focused.
We also use the Therachat app with clients when this is useful. This app is HIPPA compliant, and is a safe way to communicate between sessions with your counselor. The app allows clients to open journal which allows the counselor to know things that could be important to focus on in the next session, and also helps clients express feelings that need to be processed. The app also allows clients to track their emotions, do helpful therapeutic exercises, and receive useful handouts via the app. And it's free!
