In addition to pediatric and adult neuropsychological assessment, our office also offers individual and conjoint psychotherapy and behavioral intervention services. We have four licensed therapists on staff, three of which also work extensively within the Midland public school system.
Individual therapy is often aimed at identifying sources of distress and developing new and more effective methods of managing and coping with distress and symptoms. Individual therapy can be a complex process and therefore requires a solid commitment to self-betterment and a close and trusting relationship between therapist and client.
Conjoint therapy includes the above aspects of individual therapy, but also incorporates a family component that typically involves the client’s parents and or caregivers to varying degrees. Conjoint sessions are more common with our pediatric and young adult clients, but can be appropriate for adolescents and older adults as well (depending on the nature of the presenting problem). Clients are encouraged to work closely with their therapist to determine the best therapy approach.
Behavioral intervention services focus on identifying, isolating, and managing internalizing and externalizing behavioral problems. The goal of this manner of therapy is symptom management and skill rebuilding/development so that clients are better able to function independently in social, academic, and family settings. As stated, clients are encouraged to work closely with their therapist to determine what kind of therapy is most appropriate.
As with our neuropsychological assessments, becoming a new patient requires a Diagnostic Interview (45-60 minutes) to determine your needs and facilitate the correct treatment approach.
