Outpatient Services

Individual Counseling is an opportunity to explore, address, and learn to cope with personal issues and mental health concerns.  These concerns are typically thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviors that disrupt people’s lives: socially, academically, professionally, or negatively impact the ability to develop and maintain healthy relationships.

Group psychotherapy or group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients together as a group.  Depending on the nature of your problem, group therapy can be an ideal choice for addressing your concerns and making positive changes in your life.

Psychoeducation refers to the education offered to individuals with a mental health condition and their families to help empower them and deal with their condition in an optimal way. Essentially, psychoeducation focuses on providing you with information about specific topics in order to give you additional resources or information.
