One-on-one therapy with a licensed and qualified counselor. This type of counseling works well when situations or problems arise due to ongoing situations or maladaptive thinking patterns and behaviors. In addition, some problems are very personal and difficult to confront with others present; individual counseling offers increased privacy and privilege of information. Examples include grieving, anxiety disorders, depression and phobias. In cases of emergency (spousal abuse, rape, suicide, running away), the counselor will help you get through the crisis and refer you to further counseling if needed. Crisis intervention counseling is designed to circumvent long-term emotional trauma by processing and exploring the existing event.
Couples therapy, helps couples improve their relationship through understanding and resolving conflict and building a stronger connection. At Mental Wellness Centers we give couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate their differences, and problem solve.
Sometimes a problem isn’t part of just one person, but has roots in close relationships with others, especially family members. For instance, alcoholism is called a “family disease” because it affects the alcoholic’s life and the life of those around him.
Family therapy can help family members resolve issues with each other. It also can help them adopt ways to help another family member get well. Family members can learn how actions and ways of communicating can worsen or alleviate problems. With help, new and improved ways of communicating can be explored and practiced.
