Psychotherapy Services

Therapeutic services aim at addressing and improving the psychological health of persons through interventions that supplement but do not use medications. There are several approaches in psychotherapy.

Major areas of therapy include

Family and Couple Therapy

Services that focus on the family or the couple as a single integral unit to which each member contributes significantly. In family and couple therapy the entire family or both members of a couple are treated simultaneously- not just the person identified with the “problem”. The therapy also focuses on enhancing adjustment with other members of the family unit


Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

Behavioral treatment approaches are focused on treating abnormal behaviors. The therapeutic approach assumes that both normal and abnormal behaviors are learned and that appropriate therapy will help a person learn new adaptive behavior and ‘unlearn’ maladaptive behavior. Cognitive behavioral approaches focus on changing the faulty cognitions (thinking processes) of people about themselves and other people in the world to more accurate perceptions.
