Individual, Marriage, & Family Therapy

Therapy Services for Individuals, Couples, and Families in wayne

In Wayne, our therapy services extend to individuals, couples, and families, providing comprehensive support for adults and children aged 9 and above dealing with various mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, substance issues, ADHD, and more. Our therapy process comprises four key stages, carefully designed to optimize effectiveness and enhance the likelihood of a successful outcome.

The Four Stages To Successful Therapy
Stage 1 – Comprehensive Assessment

The initial stage of our therapy process serves as the foundation for effective treatment. It focuses on establishing a trustworthy and collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client while delving into the nature of the client’s challenges. This phase encompasses in-depth clinical interviews and the utilization of various symptom and personality inventories. When working with children, achieving an accurate assessment is paramount. We cross-reference the child’s provided information with input from their parents, teachers, and other caregivers involved in their well-being.

Stage 2 – Treatment Planning

In this stage, we meticulously analyze the client’s information and craft an individualized treatment plan. While we specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we acknowledge that therapy is not one-size-fits-all. Instead, we tailor our treatment plans to align with the client’s age, symptoms, personality, and level of motivation.

Our approach aligns with the American Psychiatric Association’s Best Practices Guidelines, emphasizing the use of evidence-based therapies. For instance, anxiety disorders may warrant individual CBT, while ADHD might necessitate a combination of supportive therapy, academic coaching, and family therapy.

Upon concluding this stage, clients receive comprehensive feedback on assessment findings, diagnoses (if applicable), and the associated treatment plans. We proceed to Stage 3 only when the client feels understood and concurs with the proposed treatment plan.

Stage 3 – Support, Skills, & Strategies

This stage revolves around equipping clients with a diverse array of tools (visit our Resources tab for our Emotional Toolkit) to regulate negative emotions, break unhealthy behavior patterns, and enhance relationships.

Stage 4 – Successful Outcomes & Booster Sessions

As clients consistently showcase coping skills and behavioral changes essential for their treatment goals, we transition to the final stage. During this phase, the frequency of therapy sessions is gradually tapered off and eventually concluded.

Following therapy termination, most clients opt to schedule 1-3 follow-up “booster sessions” within 12 months of their last regularly scheduled appointment. These sessions aim to fortify the coping tools and behavioral changes acquired throughout the therapy journey.
