Couples counseling involves discussion and problem-solving sessions facilitated by a therapist. At times it may include both partners and sometimes with individuals. This type of therapy can help couples improve their understanding of each other and, the way that they respond to one another. It may also resolve patterns of behavior that might lead to more severe mental illness.
Family therapy is facilitated by a therapist, sometimes with the entire family group and sometimes with individuals. Family Therapy helps family members improve their understanding of, and the way they respond to, one another. This type of therapy can resolve patterns of behavior that might lead to more severe mental illness. It can also help educate individuals about the nature of mental disorders and teach them skills to cope better with the effects of having a family member with a mental illness (e.g. how to deal with feeliings of anger or guilt).
Group therapy involves groups of usually 4 to 12 people, typically of similar age, who have similar problems and who meet regulary with a therapist. The therapist uses the emotional interactions of the group's members to help them get relief from distress and possibly modify their behavior.
Mental health problems are real. They affect ones' thoughts, body, feelings, and behavior. They can be severe, seriously interfere with a person's life, and even cause a person to become disabled. Individual therapy is tailored for a patient/client that is administered one-on-one whether it be in the home, office or school. Goals for therapy may be specific (e.g. change in behavior, improved relations with family or friends), or more general (e.g. less anxiety, better self-esteem).

outpatient facilities in Florida. Our staff endeavors to provide the
therapeutic services needed to aid individuals and families through
their most difficult and challenging times.
Mental Health Paraprofessionals will work with the client and family on behavioral issues that occur in the home, school, and community. The MHPP serves on the treatment team and assists professional staff with the execution of the treatment plan. They also assist with securing community services that might be available to the client and the client's family.

Play Therapy is geared toward young children (as young as two) and uses a variety of activities-such as painting, puppets, and dioramas (a re-creation of a natural setting which shows a specific moment in time) - to establish communication with the therapist and resolve problems. Play allows the child to express emotions and problems that would be too difficult to discuss with another person.
One example of a play therapist referral might be: a 5 year-old who is having trouble separating from mom and going to kindergarten. There are many more examples of more intense needs such as sexual or parental abuse.
A psychiatrist is a member of the treatment team that has completed both medical school and training in psychiatry, and is a specialist in diagnosing and treating mental illness. The psychiatrist may meet with a patient/client to evaluate their mental health and/or prescribe or maintain medicines, when appropriate.

I don’t believe that therapy is about digging up the past and analyzing it to death. Rather, my work focuses on your present experiences, while bringing in relevant aspects of your history to help illuminate the themes, desires, and patterns manifesting themselves in your life right now. I believe the power of therapy is most evident when you move from making decisions based on what you think you “should” do, to consciously making decisions because they resonate with your innermost being.
Understanding how the past has shaped our present in order to find practical solutions to a problem is sometimes called a psychodynamic perspective, and it is the orientation I practice with my clients.
Therapy is a journey filled with small, manageable steps. If you are ready to take the first step, feel free to contact me for a free initial consultation.

Entering therapy is the courageous first step toward living the life you want to live—one filled with freedom, flexibility, and personal power.
If you are seeking therapy because you are struggling with a crisis, feel overwhelmed by emotional pain, or are confronted by seemingly intractable conflict at home, work, or school, you are not alone. As others have found, therapy can help you work through these and other issues in a journey toward resolution and relief.
But therapy is much more than just "fixing" a problem. Therapy can also be a collaborative process and an enriching path toward profound self-discovery in the context of everyday life. As regular therapy helps you become more connected to your genuine self—your fears, your desires, your hangups, your sense of humor—you will discover a serene power that enables you to choose how you want to live, even when crises do arise.
Therapy can be hard work, it’s true. But it doesn’t have to feel daunting or intimidating. In fact, therapy can also be filled with laughter and a deep joy as you recreate for yourself a life of intention, health, and fullness.
