Counseling

Counseling services help you express your feelings, identify the behaviors that hold you back, and process negative experiences. Counseling can benefit adolescents, adults, and seniors, and helps improve a variety of mental health concerns. Our experienced and qualified counselors, Erin Reinhart and Lisa Walls, at Ohio Psychiatric Services offer in-office and TeleHealth counseling to adolescent and adult patients of all cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.

What is counseling?

Counseling is a type of talk therapy that can help you cope with the challenges of life. The experienced team at Ohio Psychiatric Services offers counseling services that can help you or your adolescent child overcome a hurdle or address an ongoing stressor or a specific mental health condition. Counseling can also help you in your recovery from trauma and sexual, physical, or emotional abuse.

Counseling provides you with a safe, confidential space in which you can share your thoughts, feelings, and concerns. The team at Ohio Psychiatric Services treats all patients with dignity and respect. They design personalized treatment plans to help you with coping skills to handle feelings of despair, fear, anger, and the stigma that society associates with mental health disorders.

What is involved in counseling?

The mental health experts at Ohio Psychiatric Services have advanced training in a broad range of therapeutic techniques, so they tailor your counseling sessions to meet your individual needs. Your treatment plan may include:

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)

This form of psychotherapy helps you identify dysfunctional behaviors, emotions, and thoughts and develop strategies to shift your focus towards positive thoughts, feelings, and actions. Trauma-focused CBT (TF-CBT) focuses explicitly on mental patterns triggered by traumatic experiences.

Mindfulness training

 The practice of mindfulness trains you to focus on identifying your present emotional and physical feelings to help increase mental well-being. It usually incorporates breathing and meditation.

Holistic therapy

This approach stems from the idea that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Holistic wellness training emphasizes exercise, nutrition, and sleep.

Art therapy

The process of creating art allows you to work through and process your emotions in a safe, constructive way. Art therapy can help patients of all ages to heal. It is particularly useful in the treatment of trauma.
