Clients meet one-on-one with a therapist, usually on a weekly basis. Individual therapy is useful when personal issues affect one’s ability to cope with the demands of daily living or result in personal distress. Emphasis is often placed on the acquisition of practical skills which can alleviate symptoms and promote better functioning.
Family / Marital
Couples and families are seen together when relationships within the marital or family system are the central focus of treatment.
Clients are seen weekly in a small group. Group therapy is useful when clients share common concerns or the therapeutic process is enhanced in a social context. We regularly offer specialized groups focusing on adult coping skills and the development of social skills in children. However, our groups may change depending on clients' needs. Please see the Treatment Groups section below for more information.
