Consultations

Consultations are for those who are not sure what type of therapy they desire. Sometimes you may desire long term therapy but really you are in crisis or you may feel conflicted between anger management and traditional therapy. You may not be sure if your whole family should be in therapy versus one member of the family being in therapy. When you are conflicted in this way a consult with the therapist can assist you with determining what type of therapy might best suit you and your family. Some services, such as group and anger management require starting with a consultation. A consult can also determine if this is the therapist who will best suit your needs. A consult is particularly useful when you desire long term therapy.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy is used when there is a family crisis or disturbance in the family which keeps the family from operating in the most optimal way or in a way which the family is accustomed to operating. Family Therapy also helps address relationship issues between couples. Family Therapy includes a couple or all household members and when necessary it may include members outside the household who may have a great impact on how the family is operating. The goal of family therapy is to get the family back to a place of homeostasis, a place of familiarity, or stability.

Trauma Informed Therapy

Trauma Informed Therapy seeks to support the client by understanding how trauma impacts the individual physiologically, emotionally, and behaviorally.  Trauma therapy also assists the client with creating a more positive narrative to combat the negative messages. Trauma Informed Therapy is for the client who suffered trauma in their past or more recently.  Trauma is defined very broadly. If you belief you or your loved one has suffered trauma then the trauma is based on your personal definition. This type of therapy is usually a long term therapeutic approach to address problems that have deeply impacted the client in their social, work, and intimate/familial relationships; therefore, being able to define a specific trauma is not necessary. Typically, the client desires long term therapeutic support to address on-going emotional distress. Many clients who choose this form of therapy may suffer from long term depression, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, anger, mania, bi-polar, on-going relationship problems or isolation.

Solution Focused Therapy
