Our Treatment Methods

INDIVIDUALIZED SUPPORT

Since no two clients are ever alike, we believe the treatment methods used for each client should follow suit. We individualize our treatment methodology to cater to the unique conditions of each client using evidence-based methods proven to be the most effective for treating each condition long-term. Research shows us that a combination of individual psychotherapy paired with medication is the most effective route for treating most mental health disorders. This is why we pair both medication management with psychotherapy in our treatment facility. Some of the various psychotherapy orientations we utilize with our clients include: Psychoanalysis and Psychodynamic TherapyCognitive Therapy, Behavioral TherapyHumanistic TherapyIntegrative or Holistic Therapy

Admissions

When suffering from a mental health disorder, sometimes the most difficult part of the healing process is taking the first step down the journey toward personal growth and change. We want you to know that we’re here for you during this wonderful decision you’re making for yourself or your loved one, and support you in taking this first step toward a brighter future. This process may seem stressful or anxiety-producing, but it’s not. We want you to take a deep breath and relax—we’ve designed this process to be as smooth and peaceful as possible. You’re already likely dealing with enough stress and anxiety in life, and we’re here to help alleviate and manage such symptoms, and not add onto them. If you feel like you’re in need of some true healing and change in your life, we urge you to take the first step and give us a call today.
