What type of Therapeutic Service do I need?

Once you decide, “I need therapy,” you will need to determine the type of service you are looking for. There are several different forms of therapeutic services designed to meet the needs of the people who are seeking them.

Here are a few examples of the most common types of therapy:

Individual Therapy: Individual therapy provides one-on-one counseling sessions to individuals hoping to work through concerns related to their own experiences and internal processes. This form of therapy provides individuals with the opportunity to process their life experiences, apart from the perception of others.

Couples Therapy: Couples therapy provides counseling to couples hoping to work together on issues related to their relationship. This form of therapy allows couples to understand the perspective of each partner and work towards mutually established goals. It assists one in bringing about new awareness about each other. Keeping an open mind and truly listening to each other instead of becoming emotionally reactive and defensive.

Family Therapy: Family therapy provides counseling to individuals and their families in order to overcome issues relating to the family system. This form of therapy allows families to tackle issues that impact the entire family unit, as individual members learn how to best support each other.

Group Therapy : Group therapy provides therapy to multiple  individuals who share similar goals for therapy and are comfortable processing their experiences in a group setting. This form of therapy grants individuals the opportunity to hear the perspective of others, so that they feel less isolated in their mental health journey.

Other services can address topics such as:

-Teen counseling

-Child Therapy

-Grief and trauma

-Premarital Therapy
