Psychotherapy is not like a medical doctor visit. Instead, it calls for a very active effort on your part. In order for the therapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things we talk about both during our sessions and at home.
Psychotherapy can have benefits and risks. Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness; on the other hand psychotherapy has also been shown to have benefits for people who go through it. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress. But there are no guarantees of what you will experience.
Psychotherapy includes a variety of interventions; Talk Therapy, Play Therapy, Art/Creative Process, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brain Spotting, Couples Counseling, Family and Individual Therapy (ages 4 & up)
Research suggests that symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression may be positively affected with massage therapy. We have started to work the National Holistic Institute to provide a place for their students whom are finishing up their externships. Our goal is to have a student available through out the year to provide massage therapy to our clients. While their stay with us is short term, we hope to continue with the endeavor and be able to provide students a place to practice as well as a beneficial service to our agency.
Maternal Support Services
Elisa our Maternal Support Service Coordinator provides support to all our mothers whom are expecting or have children up to the age of 5. A Doula willing to help find resources and support within our community for pregnant women and new moms.
At Creekside, the therapy process starts with our intake process. Our coordinator spends up to an hour with you going over all the paperwork. This process helps them to get you scheduled with a therapist that best fits your needs as well as insurance coverage. We try to help ease the process when trying to choose a therapist that “fits” you. We try to schedule you with one of therapist that fits your needs based on availability, preference for male or female, personality as well as the reason your have come to us. Should you feel that the therapist you are seeing is not the right person for you we would be glad to transfer you to someone else. Our therapist understand that this is about you and what you need to move forward in your life.
