Asking for help is a sign of strength. We encourage patients to ask for help if:
- You constantly worry
- You feel trapped
- You aren't getting any better with self-help
- You feel as if you can't handle things alone
- You have an untreated problem with substance use disorder
- Your feelings are affecting your job, relationships or sleep or eating habits
If you have thoughts of suicide, seek medical attention right away by calling 911. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline hotline is also available 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255.
Individual Psychotherapy or Counseling
Psychotherapy is designed to help people solve emotional, behavioral or relationship problems. The goal might be to stop or reduce symptoms, such as a phobia or feelings of sadness or anxiety. Another goal may be to improve how you function in relationships or work. Also sometimes referred to as "talk therapy," clients work one-on-one with a trained mental health provider. Services available include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, supportive psychotherapy and dynamic therapy.
In addition to individual psychotherapy, help is is available in a group setting for both adults and children.
Couples counseling can be an important tool in resolving conflict in your relationship and help you better understand each other's feelings in a safe, neutral environment. Common issues addressed during couples counseling may include communication problems, conflicts about money issues, conflicts about raising children, infidelity, substance use, step-parenting, conflicting expectations or sexual problems.
Family counseling is an opportunity to address issues that are affecting the entire family, such as addiction, depression or other behavioral problems. It is also useful in dealing with family-wide problems, such as conflicts between family members.
