Individual Therapy services are offered by Licensed Psychologists, social workers, counselors, and practicum students under supervision. Most of our staff only work with adults (18+), but a few offer therapy to children.
What to Expect
Expert Assessment and Personalized Approach: Our experienced clinicians begin by conducting a thorough assessment to understand your background, concerns, and goals. This assessment informs the creation of a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and aspirations.
Professional Diversity and Specializations: Our diverse team comprises licensed psychologists, therapists, social workers, counselors, and trainees with a range of specialties, ensuring that you will be matched with a professional who possesses the expertise to address your specific concerns, whether they are related to mental health, relationships, personal development, or more.
Collaborative Goal Setting: You and your therapist will collaboratively set goals for your therapy journey. These goals will guide the focus of your sessions, helping you work towards tangible and meaningful outcomes.
Safe and Confidential Space: We prioritize providing a safe and confidential environment where you can openly express your thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of judgment. Our practitioners are dedicated to fostering trust and confidentiality throughout your therapeutic experience.
Regular Sessions and Progress Tracking: Individual therapy typically involves regular sessions, usually on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Your therapist will track your progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed, ensuring that you are continually moving towards your goals.
Skill-Building and Coping Strategies: Your therapist will equip you with practical skills and coping strategies to navigate challenges, manage stress, and enhance your overall well-being. These tools are designed to empower you in various areas of your life.
Exploration and Self-Discovery: Therapy offers a space for self-exploration and self-discovery. Through meaningful conversations and guided introspection, you'll gain insights into your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and patterns, leading to personal growth and positive change.
Holistic Well-being: Our holistic approach recognizes that mental and emotional well-being are interconnected with physical health and lifestyle factors. Your therapist may explore various dimensions of your life to promote overall balance and wellness.
Cultural Sensitivity and Inclusivity: Our team is dedicated to providing culturally sensitive and inclusive therapy services that honor your background, identity, and values. We strive to create a welcoming environment for individuals from all walks of life.
Therapy Intake Assessment: Therapy will begin with an initial evaluation (also called an intake appointment), which is designed to gather as much relevant information and history as we can. This appointment helps us determine diagnoses and begin planning a course of treatment for your concerns.
Recommendations: At the end of your intake appointment, your clinician will offer their recommendations, which could include a recommendation to continue with that clinician, a referral to testing or medication management, or a referral outside of our practice. If, during your first visit or during the course of therapy, your clinician determines that your needs are greater than what can be offered at MMH or there is another service that will better fit your needs, you will be referred to the more appropriate service. Meeting with an MMH clinician does not guarantee continuation of services.
Follow-up Appointments: Therapy generally involves meeting with your clinician weekly or every other week. Over time, you and your clinician may adjust the frequency based on your needs and therapy goals.
Termination: When you have met your therapy goals, or when therapy is no longer medically necessary, your therapist will discuss ending therapy. Ending therapy does not mean you cannot return if needed, but it means you've done an awesome job of meeting your therapeutic goals and making improvements.
