Our mission at Steps For Change is to help those who struggle with mental health create a happy and fulfilling life for themselves. Since no two people are the same, our counseling and psychotherapy programs tailor each case individually. We develop treatment plans with a team of experts who care and are devoted to the well-being of our clients.
Child therapy uses an evidence-based approach to help kids and teens process challenging emotions and behaviors. Common issues that are addressed in child therapy include: mental health diagnoses, trauma, (including abuse or the death of a loved one), addiction in the family, and big changes (like moving, divorce, or starting a new school). Our child therapists are well-equipped to meet children’s psychological needs and to help them get on a healthy path.
Family therapy is a specialized branch of psychotherapy which helps couples and family members nurture development and healthy changes. Typically, family therapy will focus on solving problems, improving communication, managing special situations/events, exploring familial interactions, and building a better-functioning environment in the home. Our therapists work with family members to create positive changes in their lives and relationships while providing a safe, professional environment.
Couples therapy can be a daunting experience. No one wants to admit they are struggling to maintain a healthy relationship with their significant other. If you or a loved one is struggling to communicate effectively, have constructive arguments or feel as though intimacy is being lost, Steps For Change can help. Our therapists help couples resolve conflicts that allow them to develop healthier ways of communicating and understand the relationship.
After an unprecedented year full of dramatic shifts in the healthcare industry, we are proud to offer teletherapy for those who feel safer or more comfortable taking their therapy appointments away from the office. Through teletherapy, clients can interact with their therapists and receive support, tailored services, and help with their mental health.
Our reunification program helps bridge the gap between the victim and the youth who engaged in sexually harmful behaviors. This process can be vital to the journey of repairing harm and toward healing. It is crucial to have a seasoned and trained professional navigate the reunification process and at Steps For Change, our experienced and passionate clinicians care about helping you or your loved ones through to the other side.
At Steps For Change, we understand that sometimes, people need specialized treatments to promote effective healing, growth, and change. Our therapists are highly qualified to provide excellent care in the most niche programs and with the most innovative therapeutic techniques. Regardless of your or your loved one’s needs, we can help.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a psychotherapy intended on helping people access and process memories of trauma or adverse life events with the objective of finding an adaptive resolution for that person. EMDR therapy can relieve the patient of affective distress, reformulate negative beliefs, and reduce psychological arousal by processing past events and using adaptive information to create new associative links, targeting distressing circumstances to desensitize internal and external triggers, and incorporating imaginal templates into an adaptive skillset.
Originally intended to treat borderline personality disorder, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy can effectively be used to treat a number of mental health conditions such as mood disorders and suicidal ideation. It can also promote change in behavioral patterns like self-harm and substance abuse. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy focuses on acceptance and change, behavioral and cognitive patterns, collaboration, healthy skills, and support.
A psychosexual evaluation consists of a systematic assessment of the client’s sexual and social interests to determine the risk of sexually acting out in the future. Psychosexual evaluation is not a treatment in itself, but it helps therapists identify the patient’s particular needs and recommend a treatment program in order to meet those needs.
Learning that your child or the youth that you care for has acted out sexually can be overwhelming and confusing, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Our support and education group for families and caregivers can provide you with a space to connect to others who may have similar struggles. It is a place to find support, learn about treatment, and ask questions about healthy sexual relationships and behaviors.
