When life stress or old emotional patterns cause serious problems with daily functioning, psychotherapy can help you discover the reasons why you are not thriving. Through talk therapy, one might learn more positive, effective and healthier ways of coping. Whether in an individual, couple, family or group setting, we create a safe space for you to explore your experienced issues and feelings.
All of our providers see clients for individual therapy.
Couples & Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is usually provided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed therapist. The goal of the therapy is to help family members identify how specific behaviors affect others, learn new ways of relating to each other, resolve conflicts, and open lines of communication between all family members. Even health couples can benefit from learning effective ways in resolving differences, properly identifying roles and responsibilities in the home, setting boundaries and communicating in the most effective way. Families and couples are a system and many factors are considered when working with them therapeutically.
We have many providers who work with couples and families. Those providers include: Lexa Grobicki, Nicole Millner, Jessica Fener, Shanna Evering, Gloria Chiantella, Chuck McGeiver, Maggie McCleary and Lenny Moynihan.
In its ongoing attempts to define, understand, and categorize disorders, and determine the best treatments, the medical specialty of psychiatry is always concerned with the complexity of the human brain. Both biological factors and life circumstances contribute to symptoms of mental illness, and the role each plays varies from person to person. Both psychotherapy and psychiatric medication are effective for these disorders, and often a combination of the two works best. Psychiatrists are doctors with specialty training in diagnosing and treating mental illness with medication and coordinating other services when needed.

Depression, Bipolar, PTSD and other persistent mood disorders can be tricky and painful to treat. Over one million sufferers committed suicide last year because they were desperate for alternative forms of treatment. Medication and talk therapy often facilitate healing for many who struggle with these debilitating conditions but for some these traditional forms of treatment are simply not enough. The community at-large often has a grave misunderstanding of mental illness. It’s not simply a struggle of willpower or emotions alone. Mental illness is biological, chemical, organic and medical in nature. Ketamine infusions offer a new source of hope for those that have tried medication and therapy but found little benefit.
For those that suffer severe forms of Depression, Bipolar, or PTSD life can feel like a maze one’s merely trapped in. For years mainstay standards of psychiatry have been giving you directions to get out in the form of psychopharmacology and therapy. Despite your best efforts to follow the directions to exit this horrible maze you’ve been stuck in, nothing seems to work for your escape. Ketamine offers an alternative. With infusions our anesthesiologists can formulate the correct dose and target the speed in which the drug should reach your brain to help aid in the healing process.
If you’re interested in learning more about Ketamine infusions to treat medication resistant forms of Depression, Bipolar and PTSD Disorders or for treatment regarding Chronic Pain, please contact our office. We offer complimentary phone consultations. Dr. Carlos Evering is our provider who specializes in using Ketamine.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. It is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
During EMDR therapy sessions, you relive traumatic or triggering experiences in brief doses while the therapist directs your eye movements.
EMDR is thought to be effective because recalling distressing events is often less emotionally upsetting when your attention is diverted. This allows you to be exposed to the memories or thoughts without having a strong psychological response.
Over time, this technique is believed to lessen the impact that the memories or thoughts have on you.
We have 7 providers certified in using EMDR therapy. Those providers include: Shanna Evering, Jesse Ludwig, Carly Falk, Gloria Chiantella, Janel Cubbage, Sharnise Hendrick & Maggie McCleary.
