About Therapy & Treatment Modes​

The primary modes of therapy offered typically include individual, couples, family,
and group therapy, and different circumstances may call for different modes.

Most therapists don’t limit themselves to one specific type of therapy; rather, they use different styles to provide the best approach for each patient. A patient’s main mode of therapy may be individual, family therapy may prove beneficial during a separation or divorce. Couples who seek counseling for marriage or relationship issues, may see a couples counselor together while also meeting with a therapist individually.

Coaching
Individual therapy explores negative thoughts and feelings, as well as the harmful or self-destructive behaviors that might accompany them. Individual therapy may delve into the underlying causes of current problems (such as unhealthy relationship patterns or a traumatic experience from your past), but the primary focus is on making positive changes in the present.
Family Therapy
Family therapy involves treating more than one member of the family at the same time to help the family resolve conflicts and improve interaction. It is often based on the premise that families are a system. If one role in the family changes, all are affected and need to change their behaviors as well.
Group Therapy
Group therapy is facilitated by a professional therapist, and involves a group of peers working on the same problem, such as anxiety, depression or substance abuse, for example. Group therapy can be a valuable place to practice social dynamics in a safe environment and find inspiration and ideas from peers who are struggling with the same issues.
Home-Based Therapy
Home-based therapy takes place at the home of a person in therapy rather than in an office. Community health organizations and child protective agencies provide many home-based therapy programs. Private practice therapists may offer in-home sessions if it seems to be the most beneficial form of treatment, whether access to care is a problem or not.
Individual Therapy​
Individual therapy explores negative thoughts and feelings, as well as the harmful or self-destructive behaviors that might accompany them. Individual therapy may delve into the underlying causes of current problems (such as unhealthy relationship patterns or a traumatic experience from your past), but the primary focus is on making positive changes in the present.
Relationship Counseling​
Relationship therapy involves the two people in a committed relationship (i.e. marriage or couples). People go to therapy to learn how to work through their differences, communicate better and problem-solve challenges in the relationship.
Pastoral Counseling​
Beyond providing psychotherapy, pastoral counselors utilize resources such as prayer, scripture study, and participation in the congregation community to help guide people on their journey toward transcendence, transformation, and greater connection to others.
Premarital Counseling
Premarital counseling can help partners identify areas likely to cause conflict later on—finances, child-rearing methods, career goals, and family dynamics, among others—and either work through these issues in the early stages of the relationship, if possible, or develop a plan to address them in the years to come.
Psychiatry​
Psychiatry is the field of medicine dedicated to the study and treatment of mental health conditions. A person trained and credentialed to practice this type of medicine is called a psychiatrist. Psychiatrists may treat mental health conditions that interfere with daily functioning, such as depression and anxiety, and may also treat mental health conditions caused by physical injuries, such as traumatic brain injury.
Residential Treatment​
Residential treatment allows individuals to experience 24-hour care while pursuing therapy to confront the challenges of conditions related to substance abuse, addiction, and eating disorders. At residential treatment centers, individuals are able to access a higher level of care than can be provided by individual, family, or group therapy alone.
School Counseling​
School counseling takes place in public and private school settings in grades K-12. Counseling is designed to facilitate student achievement, improve student behavior and attendance, and help students develop socially. Many schools have full-time counselors on staff in order to support students who are experiencing personal or academic challenges, help students choose careers and plan for college, and intervene when students face behavioral, physical, or mental health challenges.
Sex Therapy
Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy that addresses mental health issues and/ or emotional concerns affecting a person’s sexual function, drive, and/or desire for intimacy. These issues are typically explored with the help of a licensed sex therapist. Some people seek help individually, while others may pursue sex therapy with a romantic partner.
Social Work
Social work is a professional practice that involves helping people improve their individual and collective welfare by maximizing personal skills and community resources. It is grounded in the principles of human rights, social justice, and mutual responsibility. Social workers require an in-depth understanding of human behavior and development, as well as the functions of social, cultural, and economic institutions. Individuals, families, non-familial groups, organizations, and even entire communities may benefit from social work.
Telehealth (Distance Therapy)

A growing number of people are opting for telehealth to meet their mental health care needs. Online therapy, unlike traditional therapy, enables an individual to meet with their therapist from nearly anywhere in the world, so long as they have a stable and secure internet or phone connection. One of the most popular forms of telehealth in the mental health field is online therapy through a secure video conferencing platform. » more about Telehealth.
