Our practice offers a full range of outpatient services, including individual psychotherapy, couples and family therapy, group psychotherapy, and medication management. PHA’s treatment philosophy is that each individual, couple, and family seeking help will receive the best services on an individualized basis, targeted to the specific goals of treatment. We pride ourselves on maintaining a family-practice orientation: we work with adults, children, parents, couples, and families.
Whether you are experiencing emotional pain or seeking personal growth, individual therapy provides one-on-one support each step of the way. Your individual therapist will help you identify what is working in your life, and what isn’t. As you explore, heal, and move in new directions, we work with you to make the changes you choose at the pace you want.
Depression: It's not just a mood. Clinical depression can take many forms. A temporary response to stress or loss in one’s life, a chronic low-grade experience, or more severe symptoms which include physical as well as emotional pain, are all various manifestations of depression. In your first few sessions, our therapists will help sort out what your symptoms are, what led to them, and how they can be resolved.
Anxiety: Whether a temporary reactive experience or more of a chronic response to stress, anxiety is uncomfortable! Our team is well equipped to help you identify the stressors creating or worsening anxiety, learn tools to decrease it, and develop habits to lower your daily experience of stressful anxiety.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): If you have experienced a trauma or a traumatic loss in your life, it can lead to more severe symptoms of anxiety, which we refer to as PTSD. Psychotherapy can help you heal to free you to live the life you want. All of our therapists are trained to help you resolve symptoms of PTSD; some specialize in this treatment and use specific tools such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to help you “reprocess” the trauma to release the pain.
Perinatal (Pregnancy and Postpartum) Challenges: During pregnancy and after giving birth, there is a “perfect storm” of hormonal, family system, and community changes/stressors which leads to 1 in 7 women and 1 in 10 men developing symptoms of a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD). Postpartum Support International (PSI)’s message is “You are not Alone,” “You Are Not to Blame” and “With Help, You will be Yourself Again.” Our perinatal specialists are here to help you feel like yourself again.
Substance Use: In each office we have specialists who help with your recovery. The challenges of decreasing or discontinuing the use of physically and/or psychologically addictive substances are immense and require assistance from trained therapists. We can help you identify how you can make the changes you want to deal with these challenges.
Grief and Bereavement: Grief is an inevitable part of life. The loss of a loved one is always an unexpected and challenging situation to cope with and the ability to carry on with daily activities is disrupted. It evokes feelings of confusion, doubt, guilt, anger, and other complex emotions. Our therapists can help you navigate one of the most challenging experiences of life by developing methods and strategies for coping with your loss and enabling you to build a strong support system, and come to terms with your new reality.
