Professional expertise provided to community agencies, groups, and organizations through program and case consultations dealing with mental health, chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders.
MEDICATION MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Our psychiatric providers come to us through Telehealth. We have an onsite nurse that meets clients in person and assists them in connecting with the providers through a video conferencing system. The nurse is also available to answer questions about medication. When clients meet with the psychiatric providers they discuss symptoms and work together with the client to make sure medications are assisting clients in alleviating mental health symptoms.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT PROGRAMS
The Community Support Program (CSP) is designed for persons experiencing chronic mental health symptoms. The CSP program helps individuals reduce and manage their symptoms and limitations, and move toward stability and full participation in the community. Clients and staff work together towards these goals through supportive group therapy sessions. We currently have two groups, one designated for men’s issues and one designated for women’s issues. We also offer these clients individual therapy sessions to address specific needs or goals unique to the particular client.
OUTPATIENT THERAPY: Available to individuals, couples, families and people who are concerned for another person’s well-being. Our therapists are versed in a variety of different counseling styles. We currently offer:
- Play Therapy
- Sand Tray Therapy
- Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
- Person Centered Therapy
- Psychodynamic Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Two therapies that make us unique are PCIT and EMDR.
PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION THERAPY (PCIT)
Parent-child interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an intensive treatment program that helps both parents and children. This therapy assists parents or caregivers in learning positive and supportive ways to communicate with their child/children, thus enhancing their relationships. It also provides parents or caregivers the tools to help manage behavioral problems. As part of this program, the therapist coaches the parent using positive, nonjudgmental language during live play sessions between the parent and child. This treatment consists of two parts, Child-Directed Interaction and Parent-Directed Interaction.
CHILD-DIRECT INTERACTION (CDI) – Parents learn specific skills designed to strengthen their bonds with their children. Parents are taught to begin ignoring annoying behaviors while learning to prevent and /or manage destructive or dangerous behaviors. Some of the skills parents practice are praising, reflecting, embracing the joy of play, imitating, and describing.
PARENT-DIRECTED INTERACTION (PDI) – Parents learn appropriate skills to manage the child’s behavior. These skills consist of giving proper commands, utilizing research based time out procedures, and providing labeled praise and reinforcement when the child does as directed.
Who would benefit from Parent-Child Interaction Therapy?
- Parents or caregivers who have a child between the ages of 2 and 7
- Children with behavior problems, including:
- Experiencing difficulty in school, preschool and/or daycare
- Talking back to their caregivers
- Refusing to follow directions
- Frequent temper tantrums
- Aggression toward parents, sibling, and/or other children
- Parents who would like to rebuild their relationship with a child after a period of separation
- Adoptive parents who wish to strengthen their relationship with their adopted child
- Grandparents, step-parents, or foster parents are also welcome to participate and be coached during live interactions.
EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION AND REPROCESSING (EMDR)
We are working to ensure that all of our therapist offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This type of therapy can assist clients in accessing and processing memories of trauma and adverse life experiences. It can help these memories to move from feeling as if they are happening in the here and now into the client’s timeline of past experiences. We find that having the availability to work directly with events that change how a person responds to and views their world as a crucial part of our work.
INDIVIDUAL & GROUP SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING …………………………………………………………………………………………..
Substance abuse counselors are available to complete assessments and provide evidenced-based best practices in dealing with a variety of substances. They utilize motivational interviewing to help individuals determine life goals and the steps to achieve them using low-risk choices.
Group treatment is an effective method for treating a variety of substance abuse diagnoses. Groups are facilitated by skilled therapists who allow individuals to learn new approaches while giving and receiving feedback from peers in a safe and supportive environment.
