What Services Do We Provider?
Individual therapy is a process in which patients work one-on-one with a Licensed Social Worker, Licensed Professional Counselor or a Licensed Psychologist. People seek counseling for a variety of reasons; to cope with feelings of depression or anxiety, to process a traumatic life experience, to set goals for change in their life or to cope with life stressors. Others may seek therapy for personal growth and self-knowledge. In therapy, patients explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that may be contributing to their distress and work with their therapist on how to make changes to meet therapeutic goals. PSIMED offers a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
PSIMED has several clinicians who have many years of experience working with couples counseling addressing issues directly related to a couple’s relationship with each other. The therapist will assist the couple in evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of their relationship and to develop more appropriate ways to communicate and relate to each other. PSIMED provides this service to all types of couples.
Families are a system that require all components to function cooperatively and effectively for the family to be psychologically healthy. Family counseling assists families when problems arise related to issues such as divorce, substance abuse, trauma, death and other social and environmental stressors. PSIMED has many licensed therapists that are experienced in family dynamics and therapeutic support for families.
Children's Services PSIMED offers a full range of services for children and their families. We provide individual therapy to children, family therapy and therapy between groups of family members (e.g. between parent and child). Our clinicians use a combination of Play Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with teens and children and also work with parents on behavior management and addressing special needs in children, such as parenting a child with ADD. We also provide psychological testing of children of elementary school age through adulthood to determine the presence of ADD, Depression, Anxiety disorders, Autistic disorders and learning disorders. PSIMED has licensed social workers, psychologists and therapists who are experienced in dealing with special issues such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, families who are impacted by divorce, families who are impacted by substance use, teens who are using substances, suicidal thoughts/ideation/attempts, cutting and gaming disorders.
When a child or teen has a particularly challenging mental health issue, the therapist can work with the parents/caretakers on developing patient-specific behavioral plans to implement with the child. The therapist also provides on-going support and assessment of the parent’s strategies in order to ensure that the methods used are most effective and that appropriate behavioral consequences are provided by the parent.
Counseling is available by professionals who have specialized training in the treatment of substance use disorders and other addictive disorders to individuals suffering from issues related to substance use or addiction. Services are also provided for those family members impacted by a loved one’s use of substances or another type of addictive disorder. These may include issues related to the use of drugs, alcohol, gambling, pornography, food, etc. Often families or persons close to an individual suffering from issues related to use or addictive behaviors, seek counseling to learn how to best help their loved one.
