PRIVATE PRACTICE SERVICES
Pathways Transition Programs private practice clinicians offer a comprehensive array of assessment and therapy services for children, adolescents, adults, and families. Services are both therapeutic and psycho-educational, fostering and supporting change and growth, as well as training and skill development for enhancing coping and resilience.
COUNSELING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
Private practice counseling services are offered in each of our four Pathways offices. We make every effort to understand and address the context within which each client lives and operates. Our clinicians believe every person makes the best adjustment to life circumstances within the range of options they believe they have, and that these options are limited by their view of the world and how to meet their needs and feel safe in it. Counseling helps clients expand their worldview and their options for dealing with recurring patterns of distress.
Our medical director, a board certified child psychiatrist, provides consultation and medication management for children, adolescents, and young adults. She leads a team of medical professionals and works in close collaboration with our clinical counseling staff.
Group counseling is a unique experience that builds interpersonal skills, communication, and trust while learning to monitor and manage our equilibrium with greater independence and respect for social expectations. In a group setting, clinicians address the many issues of autonomy that children can find challenging – impulse control, social skills, peer relationships, and more.
DIAGNOSTIC & ASSESSMENT SERVICESOur staff psychologist offers comprehensive psychological evaluations for children and adults that offer both a formal diagnosis and an understanding of the individual’s strengths and needs as they confront life challenges. These include assessment on cognitive abilities, academic achievement, neurological deficits, learning disabilities, personality styles, and emotional experience. Additional evaluations are offered on parenting beliefs, domestic violence, and substance abuse.
The comprehensive and unique assessment and treatment planning process is founded in our belief that individuals and families must be understood in the context of their lives. Symptoms and presenting problems are best addressed and relieved when we understand them as an individual’s attempts to meet the demands of their lives.
