Here at Psychological Services Center (PSC), we view therapy as an ongoing and lifelong process. This means whether you are hoping to do more focused work on a specific issue (such as a breakup or work problem), or to form a longer relationship with the goal of examining larger life patterns, our therapists will provide a warm, engaging, and thoughtful presence with the aim of supporting you in your growth.
Our clinicians use a holistic approach to therapy, with a focus on the client's overall well-being. Therapy can help a person work through many aspects of life, including:
- Enhancing our relationships
- Developing greater awareness of oneself
- Overcoming feelings of depression or anxiety
- Working through traumatic experiences
- Preparing for and accepting life transitions (e.g., a new job, marriage, a child, divorce)
- Identifying academic or professional goals
- Processing aging and/or new medical diagnoses
- Grieving the loss of a loved one
We provide weekly short-term and long-term therapy to individuals, couples, and families. The type, frequency, and length of treatment are always determined with each patient and the therapist. However, patients can expect therapy to generally take place at a minimum of once per week for as long as needed.
There are many reasons people seek out group therapy. Within a safe and supportive group setting, the therapist can observe the subtle ways in which people interact or relate to others.
Benefits of group therapy:
- Provides extra support that individual therapy cannot
- Helps promote social skills
- May be more affordable than individual therapy
- Helps you better understand yourself
Assessment services are available for individuals seeking personality and cognitive testing, as well as academic, vocational, and diagnostic assessment. We work in collaboration with clients, referring therapists, and other mental health professionals.
There are multiple purposes for seeking out assessments, including:
- Seeking verification of a diagnosis (the most common purpose). Examples of assessments for a diagnosis are attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) and learning disorder assessments.
- Learning more about oneself. In these cases, clients typically use the results of these assessments for guidance in deciding or adjusting to major life events such as becoming a parent, preparing for college, exploring a new career, etc.
- Gaining a deeper understanding of themselves, their past, and how they function in present day. This type of assessment can also pave the way for therapeutic treatment.
