Golden Willow Counseling provides a wide variety of therapy services designed to provide the most effective care possible for each client:
Individual Adult Counseling– Client meet one-to-one on a regular basis to explore pattern and identify desired changes. Typical areas of concern are emotional well-being, managing stress, grief and loss, relationship or family issues, and making desired changes in behavior.
Child/Adolescent Counseling– Children or adolescents meet one-to-one on a regular basis with a mental health professional to explore, at an age-appropriate level, their feelings, behaviors, coping strategies, and relationships. Parents and other adults are an important part of the successful outcome of psychotherapy for children. Therefore, recommended treatment typically includes some parental involvement.
Family/Couples Counseling– Often, more satisfying relationships are a key goal for therapy. In such cases, it may be valuable to work with a client and spouse/significant other, or a client and another family member(s) in sessions together, to best understand and improve the relationship dynamics. Clients who are working on couples’ issues sometimes choose to participate in individual therapy as well, in order to change patterns of behavior that are problematic for the relationship.
Group Counseling– Groups therapy are organized around a particular issue such as grief and loss, psycho-educational, skills development, cognitive behavioral, support, and interpersonal process. Group therapy has advantages over other modalities. These include positive peer support; a reduction in clients’ sense of isolation; real-life examples of people seeking help; information and feedback from peers; and the hope, support, and encouragement one needs for healing.
