Your care options

Individual & group counseling

You have a choice of many types of counseling. For example, Axis mental health care includes individual and group counseling. First, this provides the opportunity to look at how you would like to change your life. Second, you can examine what holds you back. Finally, you can get help to get to where you’d like to be. At your first appointment, you and your provider will talk about options. Importantly, you will have a choice of one-on-one counseling, group counseling or a combination of both. To sum up, you will choose the best type of treatment for you.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

You may want to try Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Research has shown that DBT helps treat many issues. First, it can treat substance abuse, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Second, DBT can treat eating disorders. DBT involves groups, on-on-one treatment, coaching by phone and a  team approach. DBT teaches skills for mindfulness, stress management and easing painful situations. You will learn how to ask for what you want and create boundaries. In addition, you can learn to change the emotions you want to address.

Psychiatric care

Some mental health conditions may require medication. Axis mental health care includes psychiatric providers who specialize in behavioral health and medication management. Therefore, they can support your recovery.
