Therapy should always begin with a consultation to discuss why you are interested in starting therapy and reviewing your goals for therapy. The consultation allows both you and the therapist to assess goodness-of-fit and answer any questions you may have about our therapy services. Our consultation is always free of charge.
The preferred service for most of our clients is online therapy. We live in a busy world and seeing a therapist in the office weekly may not be practical for many people. That's one of many benefits of online therapy -- it provides a modern and convenient approach to traditional therapy, allowing clients access to secure video sessions in the comfort of their own home or anywhere else that ensures your privacy. At Centered Mind Therapy, we will guide you through the process of getting started with virtual therapy and will connect you with a therapist with specialized experience.
Individual therapy allows clients to meet one-on-one with a therapist in a non-judgmental and safe space to work towards therapy goals created by the client. The first few sessions focus on understanding what brings the client in for therapy and building the therapeutic relationship. At Centered Mind Therapy, sessions last 50 minutes and typically occur weekly unless decided by therapist and client to follow a different schedule. Each therapists use a range of different therapeutic techniques to meet the needs of each individual client, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and insight-oriented therapy.
Similar to individual therapy, couples therapy focuses on addressing the unique goals that partners identify in a safe and non-judgmental space. Additionally, couples therapy focuses on opening the lines of communication and building skills that directly relate to therapy goals. Common topics include how to reduce conflict and improve communication patterns, building intimacy and positive experiences as a couple, and enhanced collaboration in parenting. Couples therapy sessions last 50 minutes and frequency of sessions can be discussed collaboratively.
Group therapy sessions at Centered Mind Therapy offer support to group members while addressing specific topics which are outlined before group registration. Topics include Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills, mindfulness, emotional processing group for women or adolescents, and postpartum health and support. Group therapy sessions at Centered Mind Therapy can be ongoing or a time-limited series. Please ask us any questions you may have about offered group sessions at the practice!
During the consultation you and your therapist will discuss why you're interested in starting therapy, and review your goals for therapy. Your therapist can also answer any questions you may have about our services. Consultations are by secure video conferencing session, or by phone.
