ADULT INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
Mental health problems are real. They affect one's thoughts, body, feelings and behavior. They can be severe, seriously interfere with a person's life. Individual therapy is tailored for a client and administered one-on-one. 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, etc.).
YOUTH INDIVIDUAL THERAPY
Individual Therapy with youth uses a variety of activities to establish communication with the therapist and resolve problems. Therapists work with the child to express emotions and problems that would be too difficult to discuss without assistance.
A psychiatrist is a member of the treatment team who 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 his or her mental health and/or prescribe or maintain medication when appropriate
