Behavioral Health Services
Individual therapy is recommended for the treatment of various problems that do not involve the inclusion of a spouse, partner, or family member. However, a partner or family member may occasionally join a session for the benefit of education and support.
Pre-marital counseling is encouraged to explore the individual expectations and potential problem areas prior to entering marriage. Healthy communication skills, including conflict resolution, will be discussed and practiced. It is recommended that couples enter into pre-marital counseling before or soon after engagement. By attending at least four sessions, couples are provided a certificate that reduces the cost of a state marriage license by $60.
Couples seek counseling for a variety of reasons. Couple’s therapy seeks to improve communication and teach conflict resolution skills. It is most successful when both parties are invested in making the necessary changes to improve the quality of the relationship.
Family therapy focuses on the interactions and relationships between family members, as well as individual personalities. This type of therapy can include one parent and child, both parents and children, or any number of combinations. Family therapy is among the most helpful resources since most people's individual patterns and struggles can be traced back to the family they grew up in (family of origin). Although Julie and Eldon do not work with children on an individual basis, they have found that by working with the whole family a child's issues often improve considerably.
Addiction therapy is a form of treatment that addresses issues specifically related to the process and behaviors associated with addictions or compulsions that show up in a variety of forms. The unmanageability of these behaviors eventually results in harm to the individual, couple, and/or family.
Personal development coaching is beneficial for individuals who desire improvement in specific areas of their life, such as relationships, career, finances, or lifestyle choices. Typically these areas are not directly related to a personal crisis or mental-health diagnosis.
A multidisciplinary treatment approach is used to address the needs of individuals with addiction and/or co-occurring disorders while allowing them to continue participating in the community, working, or attending school.
