These services are provided by a physician who specializes in the medical treatment of mental health disorders.

Counseling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably and is known to some as “talk therapy.” Psychotherapy is a general term referring to a therapeutic interaction provided by a trained professional to an individual, couple, family or group. It aims to increase clients’ sense of well-being and improve mental health by reducing uncomfortable symptoms and self-defeating thinking and behaviors. The therapist utilizes a variety of techniques to achieve this goal.
Traditional approaches blend a variety of therapies including, but not limited to psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, narrative, cognitive behavioral, behavioral, family systems, solution-oriented, psychoeducational, and expressive. Also, there are newer therapies that blend traditional methods with non-traditional approaches of mindfulness, present moment awareness, guided imagery and progressive relaxation.
In working with children, psychotherapy is adapted to meet the developmental needs of the child. Since children oftentimes do not yet have the communication skills to articulate thoughts and feelings, the child therapist will use a variety of media to facilitate the therapeutic process. Such media may include puppets, dolls, clay, books, toys, board games, and a variety of artistic and expressive methods.
In working with children and adolescents, it is very common to provide education and coaching to the parent in addition to providing family therapy. The therapist may work with the parents/caretaker to provide education and coaching on ways to manage family dynamic issues and enhance their parenting skills.
