Adult Treatment: Anxiety, Depression, Relationships

Adult SOCIAL COMMUNICATION Diagnosis & Treatment

Some adults struggle with the cumulative stress of daily life: parenting, relationships, work, anger, aging.

Some adults struggle with childhood issues: abuse / neglect, negative parents.

Some adults struggle with neurologically based challenges: anxiety, depression, ADHD, Asperger’s.

Treatment Goals:

  • Health: We will help you understand how sleep, diet and exercise are crucial to feeling your best.
  • Testing & Diagnosis: We will assist you in clarifying whether a neurologically based challenge is holding you back. (e.g., ADHD)
  • Education: If you have a neurologically based challenge we will teach you about current brain science and effective intervention.
  • Psychotherapy:
  • Collaboration with other Professionals: We will happily work with ND, MD, OD, and RD practitioners.

Personal Therapy:

Adult therapy takes many different forms. Gender, age and specific challenges tend to determine the direction of personal therapy.

We highly value authenticity. We are honest and direct. We believe in collaboration. We work with clients. We welcome insight from others who have known you: spouse, children, counselors, doctors. We base our therapeutic information on validated treatment approaches such as: Mindfulness Based Stress R educationCBTExistentialDBT, Family Systemsbehavioralpsychodynamic, as well as brain research.

We know you can learn a new way to work through challenges. Research has shown that your brain has a quality called neuroplasticity: anatomical changes occur in the brain whenever people acquire new experiences. Just as a violinist practices to make beautiful music, so too are happiness, sociability, confidence, forgiveness, and grace learned skill sets.

Testing & Diagnosis:

If you would like, we can provide testing to clarify specific concerns you have about your ongoing life challenges. Our therapists are trained to administer and interpret state of the art assessments in cognitive ability (e.g., Intelligence Quotient), learning & achievement, ADHD & Executive Functioning (e.g., D-KEFS), & Autism / Asperger’s.
