What is Adult Counseling?
Over twenty-five percent of Americans experience mental health issues every year. Our highly experienced psychologists and therapists work with adults of all ages, gender, belief systems, and backgrounds. We value working with the whole person and the issues they bring for exploration. As a practice, we center our therapy on empathy and work closely with each client.
We believe in conducting thorough face to face assessments with each person and working together with people, as a team, to determine the best course of treatment. Our approach to adult counseling is to help each person use their existing strengths, in addition to learning new skills, to grow and create their own meaning in their life. We offer a wide range of mental health services and can help identify a treatment plan that is right for you.
Counseling Services for Older Adults
In-office services include individual therapy, family therapy and consultations, couples therapy, driving assessments, cognitive memory, and dementia assessments.
Services are also available in many local area nursing homes and assisted living centers. Therapists specializing in services for older adults can meet you, your family, and your treatment team, as well as anyone assisting with treatment decisions.
Therapists are also available for counseling services for nursing home and assisted living center staff and for in-service presentations for center staff and/or caregiver groups.
Mental Health Treatment
Mental health treatment typically involves an integrative team of providers such as counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and peer support professionals. Our approach to treatment is tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.
