.....The First Step To Application
We hope the following information is helpful in understanding our professional services and business policies. Please discuss any questions or concerns you have with your therapist.
Behavioral Health Services
This is a behavioral health care practice that provides a variety of services ranging from anger management, individual, couples, families, and group counseling. The therapists in this practice are licensed and dedicated to upholding the highest professional and ethical standards.
We are skilled in a number of therapeutic approaches, which include cognitive-behavioral, solution focus, behavior modification, play therapy, trauma resolution, and long-term psychotherapy. After your initial session, your therapist will help you identify treatment plan goals and objectives.
What is counseling/psychotherapy?
Counseling/psychotherapy is sharing your thoughts and feelings in a safe and non judgmental environment. It is an effective way to identify and isolate problems, and increase communication and coping skills. Counseling also helps you to get in touch with feelings of emotional pain, while learning to express them verbally in appropriate ways, rather than through angry outbursts. This therapeutic approach to life-management can be encouraging, motivating, and empowering.
Factors important to the progression of the counseling process are honesty and trust, which are essential to the therapeutic relationship. The process of counseling needs to be clear and specific in order to achieve progress. Many clients are often unaware of their behaviors; helping clients to become more aware is the main goal of counseling.
All communication in session is confidential and protected by law. You (or your legal guardian) can only release information with written permission. If you are using insurance, you must sign a release of information for the insurance company. The information usually released to them includes diagnosis dates of service, charges, symptoms, (i.e., anxiety, depression) and treatment recommendations. We will not otherwise provide any further confidential information without your prior consent.
Georgia law does require that confidentiality be waived if one’s personal safety or the safety of others is in question. Additionally, if there is abuse of a child, elderly person, or disabled person, we are required by law to report this to the appropriate state agency/agencies.
