OFFERING IN-PERSON AND ONLINE COUNSELING
Screening and Assessment, Treatment Planning, Care Coordination, Diagnosing, Individual and Family counseling and Consultation
As part of the initial intake your clinician will utilize evidence-based screening and assessment tools to better understand your strengths and needs. A diagnosis is determined based on your self-report, information gathered during the initial intake meeting, and when possible, information provided by other former/current treating providers. Your therapist will partner with you to determine the best course of action moving forward and develop an individualized treatment plan to fit your therapeutic goals. Additionally, with your permission, your therapist will coordinate care with your treating Primary Care Provider as well as consult with any other relevant providers as the need arises.
Sometimes our children can get in the habit of seeking out our attention in very negative ways. Sometimes our children have a difficult time regulating their emotions resulting in tantrums or meltdowns. In order to make the best, longest lasting changes in our kids, it is vital to work with the parent/caregiver and child together so that the parent can take the tools home and use them on a regular basis. This is when change occurs. Using this specialized approach, we help parents and children find a new way of working together so everyone wins!
Every family has conflict, but you may see that it is time for a change to yours. Monarch Behavioral Health is family-centered, and strives to help your family make the changes it needs to succeed.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. Clincians also report success using EMDR as treatment for panic attacks, disturbing memories, complicated grief, phobias, and sexual and/or physical abuse. EMDR seems to have a direct effect on the way that the brain processes information. Normal information processing is resumed, so following a successful EMDR session, a person no longer relives the images, sounds, and feelings when the event is brought to mind. You still remember what happened, but it is less upsetting. (as defined by: EMDR International Association)
For more information about EMDR please check our this article written by our very own Ali Thompson, LMSW
