INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

The Psychiatric Care Center understands that mental stabilization is an ongoing process and clients need additional support beyond 10 weeks of intensive outpatient treatment. The PCC staff is dedicated to providing wrap-around care in conjunction with medication management through our parent office, Thomas J. Andrews, MD, Inc., as well has treating patients who are not seeking medication management. By offering individualized therapy services in conjunction with intensive outpatient treatment and/or medication management treatment, the client gains additional support to build a healthier lifestyle and expand on day-to-day functioning with developed coping skills. Our providers work primarily with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to explore thought processes and behaviors, modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and thoughts, while changing destructive patterns of behavior. Providers also work with solution focused, mindfulness, strength based, problem solving and behavioral therapies.

Therapy services include individual, couples and family sessions and can focus on a range of life events and struggles, including grief and loss, depression and anxiety, stress management, work and career issues, and conflict resolution.
