Clinical Psychology

Living Life to the Fullest

Evidence-based treatments for adults

Life can be challenging at any age, particularly in these challenging times.  That means more people across the age spectrum are actively seeking mental health support. The reasons for which older and younger people might seek care can vary; nonetheless, the stressors are real, significantly affect the mental health of older and younger adults, and warrant a personalized treatment approach that is tailored to their specific needs.

We're Here to Help

Therapy, which is also known as psychotherapy, helps you understand how you think, feel, and behave.  More importantly, when therapy is effective, you can learn how to change the way that you think, feel, and behave and live a happier, more effective life.  By working with your therapist, you’ll develop a skill set to tackle life’s most challenging situations and enable you to handle them without disrupting your life. EMH’s team of clinical psychologists is trained to support you by understanding conditions such as:

Anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorders, panic, post-traumatic stress
Bipolar disorder, depression, adjustment disorders
Bereavement/death of a loved one, difficulties coping with daily life/work, caregivers’ stress, significant medical illness

Starting the Path Toward Wellness

You can begin your path toward a more balanced, fuller, and happier life today. In the first session, we’ll clarify and measure the particular psychological symptoms that you are experiencing, such as depression and anxiety. This approach allows us to establish a baseline level of functioning, determine the effectiveness of treatment, make changes as needed to your treatment regimen, and pave the way to better mental health.

While the frequency and duration of treatment sessions vary based on your needs, sessions typically are scheduled on a weekly basis and last 55 minutes. Every 8-12 weeks, follow-up assessments are carried out to measure various psychological symptoms, determine the effectiveness of ongoing treatment, and/or consider whether any changes might be integrated into the treatment plan. As symptoms improve, the frequency of treatment will likely decrease. Once symptoms have resolved to manageable levels, the necessity of ongoing treatment is re-evaluated.
