some ways in which we help
Psychotherapy is the cornerstone of what we provide. In fact, it's at the heart of this profession. It is an empirically supported treatment for virtually every mental health disorder. There are literally thousands of studies that support its efficacy, which is why we think it's so critical. Finding the right therapist is also important. We have a variety of therapists, all of whom are proficient in different areas. Please read about our staff here.
Medication can be a critical tool to aid with recovery. It can allow for an opportunity for psychotherapy to be more effective, or can help stabilize those who are really struggling. We are not wined and dined by pharma, in fact we have yet to meet with a single sales rep. The medication(s) that are prescribed are based on research and the prescribers experience of its effectiveness. This service is available to all age ranges, including children and adolescents.
Psychological testing can be helpful in a variety of circumstances. It is highly informative and can aid with successful treatment. Common evaluations include:
- To determine if a neurodevelopment disorder is present, which includes ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
- When a diagnosis is otherwise unclear
- To aid in determining if a higher level of care may be necessary
Just like with treatment we provide, assessment utilizes only empirically validated, highly reliable and valid instruments. If you have questions regarding a kind of assessment you or your child may need please do not hesitate to call.
Advocacy can be a critical piece of treatment. Many times our clients need a voice in their corner, someone to help guide them through a complicated system, whether it's communicate with the courts or DCP&P, we know helping clients often extends beyond the session.
