Here’s What You Can Expect When We Begin Working Together
1) Comprehensive Assessment for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan on the initial visit.
2) Individual Therapy (involving parents if applicable), tailored to the individual’s needs, using various therapeutic modalities including, but not limited to:
- Play Therapy for children, employing games, art, and imaginative play. These can elicit information and help work on problems in a less intimidating format than talk therapy.
- Insight-oriented Therapies
- Supportive Therapy
- Behavioral Therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Therapies, and Relaxation Techniques
- Use of workbooks and other printed material that provide additional help, both in and out of session.
3) Medication Management, for problems that do not respond to therapy alone.
4) Referrals to practitioners with different areas of expertise, such as psychologists, family therapists, therapists with specific specialties, and primary care or other specialty care physicians. If a non-psychiatric medical problem is suspected, the patient is referred to their primary care physician.
