TREATMENT MODALITIES: PSYCHOTHERAPY
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy helps individuals work with their conscious minds to understand more clearly why they think and feel the way they do. It provides individuals with insights into their interpersonal relationships, and patterns of relating to others. It is less intensive than psychoanalysis, and usually involves one or two sessions a week for several years.
INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
  • Insight Oriented Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy
GROUP THERAPY
  • Support groups
  • Insight Oriented groups
  • Theme oriented groups
  • Adolescent groups
  • Social Skills training groups for children
Group therapy is a unique treatment that addresses real life problems in a group setting. It is an opportunity for individuals to understand how their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors are experienced by other people. The group develops values and perspectives that form the group’s identity, and becomes the “sounding board” for individuals to gain insight about themselves and others.
COUPLES THERAPY
  • Relationship conflict resolution
Couples therapy is a treatment designed specifically to focus on the couple’s relationship and help them begin to understand one another. Through this understanding couples can learn to shape their relationship into the relationship they aspired to have, and develop an appreciation and respect for their partner.

Couples therapy considers the ways couples communicate and work as a team. It helps couples develop skills to enhance their communication. It provides an awareness of the way relationships were experienced and perceived in the families of origin, and how these relationships may be re-played in the couple’s relationship.
PLAY THERAPY FOR CHILDREN
Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy for children. Play is the medium through which the communication occurs, and the child’s emotional conflicts are worked through. The play environment enables the child to express his/her thoughts and feelings through characters within the play themes. The therapist works with the child in the context of the play to address the emotional struggles of the characters created by the child.
