Therapy Services

The Psychological Services Center (PSC) provides individual, couples, and family therapy services to address a variety of presenting concerns.

Individual therapy consists of meeting one-on-one with a therapist and exploring issues relevant to your presenting concern. You will be encouraged to reflect on your behaviors, thoughts, emotional expression, and relationship patterns to gain insight into your presenting concern and potential ways to bring about change in your life. You will also be presented with opportunities to make and evaluate changes and provided with tools to maintain these changes.

Couples therapy involves attending sessions together as a couple with an emphasis on evaluating your relationship concerns. Your therapist will work with you to increase understanding of the dynamics in your relationship and potential changes to increase your satisfaction with your relationship. You can expect to have a chance to practice new behaviors during your sessions and to apply these behaviors to your interactions between sessions.

Family therapy focuses on the relationships between all members of a family with an emphasis on decreasing familial strife and increasing effective communication and interactions. Your therapist will work with you to assess and understand the dynamics of your family and assist you in implementing strategies tailored to addressing your particular needs and concerns.

Child/adolescent therapy assists children or adolescents in addressing the emotional or psychological concerns that affect their daily lives and relationships. Your therapist will work to provide a safe and supportive environment in which your child or adolescent can explore their presenting concerns and gain tools for effective communication and emotional expression. Your therapist is likely to recommend strategies to implement at home to provide opportunities for the tools your child or adolescent is learning in therapy to be transferred to other settings. Behavioral modification programs may also be implemented to decrease problematic behaviors and increase effective behaviors.
