Certified Clinical Training
The field of clinical therapy is diverse and includes many specialties, such as marriage and family therapy, mental health counseling and addictions counseling. Regardless of the specialty, these professionals help patients cope with behavioral, mental and emotional problems that interfere with their daily lives.
At Brock Family Therapy Center, we use some pre-licensed therapists (CSW and MFTA) and practicum interns to allow them the opportunity to gain experience in order to become licensed in their field of study. They are supervised by our licensed therapists who assist them in running one-on-one or group counseling sessions, organizing treatment programs and referring necessary cases to medical professionals. By using pre-licensed therapists and practicum interns, we are able to offer care to individuals who otherwise cannot afford treatment or are not approved by insurance.
Family, Parent-Child, and Couples Therapy
Family therapy helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. It is designed to strengthen families of all types by teaching members to effectively deal with various behaviors that have been brought on by traumatic events, life changes or other factors. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.
Our specialized staff work with parents and children in individual and/or joint sessions to help improve behavior and create positive parent-child relationships. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Each child’s treatment is individualized based on age, symptoms and specific trauma circumstances. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation.
Couples therapy is also offered at our center. We know that couples struggle every day and want them to be able to find and build on those strengths again. We collaborate with our clients and help them find ways to communicate better so that they can build foundations for better futures. Couples therapy is a self-pay service.
Aging & Geriatric Issues Counseling
While some adults may approach their “Golden Years” eagerly, anticipating retirement, grandchildren, or simply a new phase of life, others may dread the physical and mental effects of aging. It may be difficult for some adults to face the transition to retirement, deal with new frailty or medical conditions, or find enjoyable, meaningful activities.
Our therapists help ease the transition for aging adults and their families by providing support. We help them accept the challenges that the natural process of aging presents and help them manage stress in order to prevent health issues. Therapy can help older adults who may have difficulty with the transitions of aging to manage their emotions, find new sources of enjoyment and meaning, and find new support systems.
