Take the first step toward mental health. Call to schedule an appointment for outpatient therapy!

Beginning Therapy

Once you’ve made the call and committed to outpatient therapy, we will work to connect you with the best doctor and/or therapist specialized in the situation you face. Our large outpatient therapy team consists of very experienced and reputable doctors and therapists trained in many disciplines; they can handle all psychological and psychiatric outpatient therapy treatments. During your initial outpatient therapy appointment, your therapist or doctor will work with you to perform a thorough evaluation to determine your level of mental health and the most appropriate outpatient therapy treatment for you. We’ll ask you your goals for treatment so that together we can determine the best approach.

Outpatient Therapy from ABC

We offer a variety of approaches to outpatient therapy in order to meet goals and bring about desired results. Treatment length will depend on the individual, and termination of outpatient therapy treatment should be a joint decision between patient and therapist.

Individual Therapy

Our trained therapists and staff offer one-on-one sessions for individual outpatient therapy and counseling. Every patient is different, and our custom outpatient therapy plans reflect this fact. Outpatient therapy sessions are designed to meet each client’s unique mental health needs. The outpatient therapy providers at American Behavioral Clinics care deeply about their patients’ individual wellness.

Group Therapy

We host group outpatient therapy sessions to provide support and encouragement to patients suffering from common struggles. Research has shown that group outpatient therapy offers countless benefits to an individual’s mental health, including increased self-awareness, emotional support that leaves patients feeling less isolated, development of positive interpersonal behaviors, and positive changes in self-perception.

Group Therapy Sessions

Family Therapy

Our therapists oversee family outpatient therapy to encourage communication and understanding among all family members. Whether your family is struggling with someone’s depression, substance abuse or addiction, grappling with divorce, recovering from the loss of a loved one, or seeking help with a child’s past sexual abuse, we can provide the family outpatient therapy to help resolve your conflicts. During family outpatient therapy sessions, we discuss roles, boundaries, and behaviors and uncover the stressors in your family relationships, leading to healthier, more productive familial interactions.

Individual Therapy

Meeting with an ABC therapist and/or doctor can help you get a handle on your current situation and gain tools to help you get to a better place. Psychiatric individual therapy care provides a safe way for you to explore past events that may have contributed to the current situation and open up dialogue to overcome harmful troublesome thoughts and or behaviors to achieve greater mental health. Under one-on-one supervision of a therapist or doctor, you will have someone listen and understand your current situation and then offer advice on how to work through each difficult situation. Our doctors and therapists understand how important it is to gain your trust. We operate under a strict code of ethics and follow all protocols required for patient/physician confidentiality and safety.

Approaches to Psychiatric Individual Therapy Care

We know your story is unique to you and will provide treatment plans and psychiatric individual therapy care catered to your specific needs. Our approach to psychiatric individual therapy care, counseling, behavioral and mental health emphasizes your strengths and unique qualities. We focus on providing solutions that relieve stress, treat current symptoms and prevent further problems. Because each person is unique, our therapists are trained to create an individualized approach to treatment to improve your mental health. Some of the ways our therapists assist patients include:

✅  Counseling sessions to discuss a patient’s thoughts, current views, and fears
✅  Hypnosis
✅  Cognitive, solution-focused therapies
✅  Breathing techniques and imaging exercises
✅  Discussions about the past to understand current struggles
✅  Identification of conscious and unconscious fears or desires
✅  Psychiatric individual therapy in play (geared toward children)
✅  Group therapy sessions
✅  Family therapy sessions

Family Therapy

Are you in need of professional family therapy to work through issues with your relatives? Our family therapy sessions are designed to help family members communicate to understand one another’s needs and desires. During family counseling, roles, behaviors and boundaries are discussed.

Family Therapy Issues

Some of the common issues tackled during family therapy sessions include:

✅  Depression, stress or anxiety among family members
✅  Substance abuse of a family member
✅  Addiction counseling
✅  Marital relationships (couples counseling, spouse counseling)
✅  Frequent arguments and conflict between family members
✅  Coping with mental illness
✅  Anger outbursts
✅  Sexual assault and abuse
✅  Parenting issues (school issues, ADHD therapy)
✅  Divorce

No matter your need for pursuing family therapy, the professionals at American Behavioral Clinics can help.

Family Therapy Outcomes

Regardless of the situation, our therapists and doctors are trained to help families identify patterns that create conflicts and find resolutions. Depending on the situation, family therapy can involve all family members or just those involved in the situation. Some family therapy situations have involved couples, one spouse, parents and children, siblings, extended families, in-laws and occasionally, even friends. During family therapy sessions, a counselor will work with each family member to discover the stressors in the relationship and address specific issues. Individual therapy and group therapy are also available for family members needing additional treatment outside of family therapy sessions.
