Psychotherapy refers to the therapeutic interaction and treatment between therapist and patient. CCC offers psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults. Our psychologists include parents, caretakers, and other involved individuals as part of the work we do with children. We use a client-centered approach to therapy, knowing that treatment will only be successful if there is trust and a strong working relationship between you and your practitioner. This relationship is an important aspect of the healing process, and when it is complemented by the clinical expertise and effective integration of scientifically validated treatment modalities, clients realize positive change.
Individual psychotherapy is a personalized and powerful modality. Our psychologists are well trained, using a variety of therapeutic approaches to design treatment plans according to client objectives, and informed by their individual diagnostic profiles. A client-centered approach is critical to building the trusting therapeutic relationship between patient and therapist necessary for successful outcomes. Our psychologists strive to facilitate change, as clients increase their sense of wellbeing through exploration, discovery, skill building, problem solving, and processing and resolving trauma. We are here to provide each of our patients with the support and care they need in order to feel better or to cope more adaptively with difficult and often overwhelming life events and experiences.
Couples therapy is focused on the relationship, rather than the individual. Common issues assessed and targeted include conflict and anger management, emotional detachment, loss of intimacy, unexpressed needs, feeling unheard, negativity, and misunderstandings. Your psychologist will use strategies known to bring about positive change within a relationship including effective communication, altering aversive strategies, anger management strategies, taking time to reflect, learning how to be mindful and completely present for each other, and exploring each partner’s unique love language.
When sessions involve children and their families, our psychologists focus on changes that are needed within the family dynamic. We will help your family understand how interactional patterns contribute to negative experiences and problems with psychological adjustment, throughout the family system. When a child’s family member needs additional support, the psychologist working with that child will refer him or her for individual therapy, or, the parents for couples’ therapy. If parenting skills are needed, beyond what the child psychologist is able to provide, your psychologist will make a referral. Once family members all are receiving the support they need, collaboration between providers, positive change begins.
