- case management, referral, and service coordination;
- interventions to remove environmental, employment, and attitudinal barriers;
- consultation services among multiple parties and regulatory systems;
- the provision of consultation about various mental health and personal matters.
Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
During this stage, your therapist will assess, analyze, and provide diagnostic descriptions of mental, emotional, or behavioral conditions. We will explore workable solutions for you, and we'll develop and implement a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
Counseling/Psychotherapy Treatment Intervention
Treatment may involve different therapeutic methods, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic and Interpersonal Process Therapy, REBT, or other models, depending on your individual needs. Interventions are implemented within a professional counseling relationship and may include techniques such as
- Individual, group, marriage, and family counseling and psychotherapy
- Diagnostic description and treatment of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders
- Guidance and consulting to facilitate normal growth and development, including educational and career development
- Functional assessments and counseling for persons requesting assistance in adjusting to handicapping condition
Your therapist will evaluate and identify your needs to determine if referrals to other specialists may be advisable. We'll advise you if a referral is recommended, and we'll communicate appropriate information about your case to those professionals.
