It can be a challenge to go to a counselor the first time. It can be hard to face ourselves, to open up to another, and even to just take that first step to address the things that we are struggling with. But taking that step can mean a world of difference for your life. Many of our clients come for individual therapy to deal with challenges such as depression, clinical depression, getting through a rough phase of life, bipolar disorder, anxiety issues, or school behavioral issues, to name a few. We offer mental health services for both adults and children. Within the first couple sessions, a mental health assessment will be conducted that allows us to gather history and information about your particular needs so that we can understand you as well as possible.
Then an individualized treatment plan is developed with cooperation between the client and the therapist. We offer both individual and group therapy, as well as case management with other service providers, and medication management when necessary. We work with three prescribing physicians, including two psychiatrists who work closely with our therapists to provide additional consultation and evaluation as needed.
In addition to our regular outpatient services, we also provide 24/7 crisis services to the residents of the counties we serve. This crisis line can be accessed in an emergency by dialing 9-1-1. Feel free to stop by one of our offices for more information or give us a call. You can even download an intake packet from our website.
If you have, or believe you may have a mental health problem, it can be helpful to talk about these issues with others. It can be scary to reach out for help, but it is often the first step to helping you heal, grow, and recover. Having a good support system and engaging with trustworthy people are key elements to successfully talking about your own mental health.
