Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation
60 minute initial session of information gathering about a person within a psychiatric or psychotherapy service with the purpose of making a diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan or referral. The assessment includes social, cultural, biological, and psychological information reported by the client as well as direct observations and data from collateral sources if available. At our practice, these assessments are completed by a licensed professional appropriate for the presenting problem, to include anger management and substance abuse as referred by the court system or workplace.
Individualized Treatment Plan
A behavioral health treatment plan is a document created by the client and treating professional that details a client’s current problems and outlines the goals, strategies, and techniques that will assist the client in overcoming mental health, situational, and behavioral issues. This plan is assessed and amended often as the client changes and goals and objectives are met. This is a free service.
45 – 60 minute individual session in which the client and therapist interact using behavioral, psychological, and goal-oriented methods to help a person change and overcome problems in desired ways.

Employee Assistance (EAP) Counseling
