BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES
Individual Therapy (Psychotherapy) is a therapy that is conducted with you and your therapist either face to face or via telehealth due to COVID-19 restrictions. Most people seek individual therapy to help address issues that are proving difficult for them to cope with and which are impacting their life and daily functioning. There isn’t a single modality that works for everyone and some modalities are more effective than others in regard to the specific individual. Therefore, our therapists use a variety of therapeutic approaches to help you address difficulties, gain insight, initiate change, and build effective coping strategies to help improve the quality of your life and daily functioning. Our therapist will work with you towards cultivating a new perspective in a safe, supportive, trusting, and non-judgmental environment.
Group Therapy helps to guide you as you work through your problems in a protected, trusting, and confidential atmosphere. You will receive the support and encouragement of other group members that are dealing with similar issues, which can help you feel less isolated in your struggles.
You may find group therapy helpful if you have experienced a traumatic situation or dealing with a sudden illness or loss. In these instances, group therapy is beneficial because members can share their common feelings in a non-judgmental and supportive setting.
Our groups are held bi-weekly for 1.30 hours, some groups are on-going and others are time-limited. If you are interested in group therapy, you will be assessed and given information that can help you make an informed decision regarding the group that may be most beneficial for you.
Our groups are facilitated by experienced therapists and have approximately six to eight members, who are dealing with similar life challenges. Some groups may also have a co-facilitator.
Couples therapy helps couples manage and overcome many of the problems that cause distress in relationships. These problems include communication difficulties, fighting, unresolved anger, and distancing in the relationship. Our goal is to help you identify the negative cycles in your relationship, build upon strengths, and help you to reconnect and grow as a couple.
