Mental Health Services

Therapy

Individual Psychotherapy

Individual therapy sessions are offered for children, adolescents, and adults. A mental health professional will help you deal with personal, behavioral, academic, or emotional problems or any situation that provokes emotional distress, with the goal of improving your quality of life.

Couples and Family Therapy

A mental health professional will help a couple and/or family work through the problems and emotional conflicts that are affecting them. The objective is to tend to the needs of each family member and to find solutions together in order to minimize tension and improve couple or family interactions.

Group Therapy

During these sessions, specific issues and concerns that provoke emotional distress will be identified and worked on as a group. We seek to increase the support network of participants and to help them manage their problems collectively.

Therapy for Domestic Violence and/or Sexual Abuse Survivors

In individual sessions, we seek to emotionally heal people who have experienced any type of physical, psychological, or sexual assault. We will sensitively offer professional support and guidance in order to treat the psychological, emotional, and behavioral effects of these assaults.

Testing

Pediatric Development Screening Test

This is an interdisciplinary screening test for children from birth to 5 years of age. It is a fast and effective way of determining if motor, cognitive, socioemotional, communication, self-help, eating, and hearing skills are within "average" parameters. The screening test for each area takes about 10 minutes and is used to identify conditions that could require a formal evaluation by a speech-language pathologist, audiologist, or psychologist; a referral to a different specialization; or monitoring for a specific period of time.

Pediatric Speech, Language, Hearing, and Dysphagia Screening Test

This is a fast and effective way of determining if a child’s communication, reading, writing, hearing, and eating skills are within "average" parameters. Each area's screening test takes about 15 minutes and is used to identify conditions that could require a formal speech, language, hearing, or eating evaluation; a referral to a different specialization; or monitoring for a specific period of time.

Adult Speech, Language, Hearing, and Dysphagia Screening Test

This is a fast and effective way of determining if an adult’s communication, hearing, and dysphagia (eating and swallowing) skills are within "average" parameters and/or functional. Each area's screening test takes about 15 minutes and is used to identify conditions that could require a formal speech, language, hearing, or eating evaluation; a referral to a different specialization; or monitoring for a specific period of time.

Pediatric Speech and Language Evaluation

This is a more formal, in-depth approach to obtaining information regarding a child’s speech, language, and eating skills. Formal and informal tests are administered to determine strengths and areas of need in order to compare them to other children of the same age. The evaluation consists of an interview to obtain the child’s history, a test result analysis, and the parent's input. A written report is prepared that includes information from the interview, test results, strengths, areas of need, a diagnostic impression, and recommendations.

Adult Speech and Language Evaluation

This is a more formal, in-depth approach to obtaining information regarding an adult’s speech, language, and swallowing skills. Formal and informal tests are administered to determine strengths, areas of need, and functional skills. The evaluation consists of an interview to obtain the individual’s history and a test result analysis. A written report is prepared that includes information from the interview, test results, strengths, areas of need, a diagnostic impression, and recommendations.

This consists of bedside evaluation and treatment of disorders in eating and swallowing processes.

Hearing levels and responses to sounds are evaluated.

Auditory functions are examined, along with discrimination, attention, memory, and auditory association capabilities.
