Group psychotherapy is a special form of therapy in which a small number of people meet together under the guidance of our professionally trained therapists to help themselves and one another. Group therapy helps people learn about themselves and improve their interpersonal relationships. It addresses feelings of isolation, depression or anxiety. And it helps people make significant changes so they feel better about the quality of their lives. Additionally, group therapists can apply the principles of group to other settings and situations such as businesses, schools and community organizations. Also offered are focused group experiences such as anger management, parenting, and addictions.
Unlike other approaches to mental health and psychology, family therapy focuses on the interpersonal relationship of the members of a system called a family. Changing the system involves bringing the whole family together at times and attempting to make changes to reduce misery and distress. Participation in family therapy does not suggest that something serious is wrong with a family. Our family therapist serves as an agent to deal with simple adjustments of a system in misery
Psychological Evaluations involve a series of empirically derived psychological tests designed to aid therapists, counselors, teachers, and/or parents better understand the needs of the individual. Psychological assessments ensure the client that he/she is receiving the appropriate level of care for their individual needs. Psychoeducational Evaluations help to illuminate the specific needs of you or your child regarding necessary academic support. Psychoeducational assessment is often an eye opening experience for parents who are experiencing frustration about their child’s difficulty with school, both academically and behaviorally.
