ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Couples Therapy, Family Therapy, Premarital Counseling, Trauma (Which includes PTSD, Family Trauma, etc), Grief, Behavioral Issues, Divorce, Faith-based Counseling, Eating Disorders, and Group Therapy.
These typically last 45 to 50 minutes and primarily focus on one person and what they are facing. There is a focus on treatment goals as well as implementing several types of therapy to help manage them.
If this is with a child/teen, parents can be invited in. Depending on the age of the child/teen, they will have a say as well if they want the parents involved. This is due to, depending on the age, children/teens will sometimes open more when their parents are not present. This is often discussed during the intake and prior to each session as needed.
Typically, 50 minutes in length and focus on improving family interactions as well as the perceived problem the family is facing. During this, Family Systems Trauma (FST) is primarily used. This can also allow for instructions to parents as to how to redirect behaviors of their children and implement skills to prevent future maladaptive behaviors.
Sessions are typically 50 minutes in length and include pre-marital and marital counseling. Even if couples are not looking to get married or married, sessions can happen for them to work on any potential disagreements they are having and how to communicate their wants/needs more effectively.

*Family Systems Trauma was created by Dr. Scott Sells to work with families that have a form of trauma. This can include where a member of the family is acting out in some way. The method focuses on how each member of the family may or may not have contributed to the struggles the family is facing. The work begins with replacing unhealthy undercurrents with healthy ones that can often lead to the family healing from the wounds.
*Integrative Medicine looks at different aspects of your life. These areas include sleep, nutrition, stress levels, and other factors that are typically treated with a regiment of medications. This is an attempt to do things in a way to not go straight to use of medications for the primary problem. Some of the things treated with use of integrative medicine include depression, anxiety, stress levels, bipolar, and other mental illness that could be a direct result of some of the foods we eat, stress levels from work etc., or even lack of sleep.
