Our experience as clinicians and our backgrounds have taught us that many of these areas of suffering may be resolved in individual therapy, but that group therapy may oftentimes be an important component of achieving wellness.
We collaborate regularly as clinicians, and co-facilitate group work in the areas of addictions, anxiety, grief and loss, LGBTQ issues, and more.
In individual therapy our role is to explore whatever issues you decide are keeping you from living your life in the most flourishing way possible. The challenges we face in living this type of life are varied and often navigable while working with a professional in a safe, non-judgmental space. When Socrates noted that that the unexamined life is not worth living, he gave us a reference point from which to look at what holds us back, what troubles us, what scares us, and with help… how to overcome those obstacles.
The struggle to share this life journey with another person invites the opportunity for great personal growth, and a lifelong compassion that endlessly enriches. This struggle, however, will reveal our deepest fears and greatest questioning. Providing you the space to explore those fears and questions is the role of the couple’s counselor.
Group psychotherapy is based on the premise that much of human behavior and feeling involves the individual’s adaptation and response to other people. It is a process carried out organized groups of four or more individuals who seek change in their personal life, including improvement in interpersonal relationships.
We are rigorous and thorough in the role of clinical supervisors. Our professional goals are to refine your self-view as therapists, to allow you to look at your own histories and the stories that led you here, to provide clinical input and another viewpoint to your cases, to assist you in your honing your skills as professionals in both private practice and other clinical settings, and to ultimately help you develop into the authentic and genuine therapist that you wish to become.
Alcohol and Drug Assessment
At Lampost Wellness, our clinicians have extensive histories in addiction treatment. One of our services is to provide an accurate assessment to a concerned individual, the Court, or a University regarding a referred client’s or student’s potential addiction, and what level of care (if any) may be most appropriate to treat the issue.
Holistic Wellness and Mindfulness Work
Holistic, wellness, and mindfulness approaches to mental health are more about flourishing than solving problems. While our holistic approach incorporates everything from working with nutritionists, psychiatrists, psycho-pharmacologists, acupuncturists, and massage therapists, it is our work in wellness and mindfulness that aids our clients in smoothing out their reactions to life’s rough edges.
