Services

Individual Adult Counseling

Individual therapy offers the client one-on-one attention that allows for a more consistent and intensive focus on one's issues and struggles than in any other therapeutic context. Individual counseling provides the client with an open non-judgmental environment to explore personal distress and gain skills to improve their quality of life on their own terms. Some areas of focus may include emotion regulation, calming strategies, assertiveness skills, developing healthy definition of self, etc. Clients seeking counseling for an active addiction may not be seen by our student counselors. However, if addictions counseling is being provided at another counseling site, the CCRC counselors can assist with distress in other personal areas.

Clients will complete a phone intake prior to scheduling their first session. This intake consists of questions used to identify the appropriateness of the services provided by the CCRC. This will also provide the counselor a basic overview of presenting concerns prior to the first meeting. If level of care provided by the CCRC is not adequate to meet the needs of a client, appropriate referrals may be provided.

Child/Adolescent Counseling

Children and adolescents may face a range of challenging problems in their lives that might include sadness, anxiety, academic stress and family conflicts. It is important that they learn how to understand, control and express their emotions appropriately. The counselor can become a trustworthy mentor who aids in the growth and maturity of your child and adolescent. Children and adolescent therapy may include providing parents/ guardians with strategies to make the home an open environment for the child to practice and demonstrate the skills gained in therapy.

Marital/Couples Counseling

Couples counseling is designed to help people who are in committed relationships by providing a trained counselor(s) to facilitate conversations that lead to understanding, reconciliation, and/or greater intimacy. Counselor will provide the couple with tools and techniques to facilitate healthy communication with topics that may have caused disharmony within the relationship. These tools can be applied to future "road blocks" encountered within the relationship.

The counselor will not make personal judgment regarding the future of the couple. Instead, they are present to support the couple's decision and work toward the couple's goal. Counselors at the CCRC are unable to see clients that are currently a part of domestic violence. Clients may be asked to sign a "no violence" contract prior to beginning counseling.
If there is space available, couples may have the opportunity to seek individual services in addition to their scheduled couples sessions. This helps to promote personal growth and healthy relationships.

Family Counseling

Family counseling will focus on interpersonal conflict, interactional patterns, tools and techniques of appropriate communication within the family. The goal is to strengthen and promote growth within the family system as a whole. It is important to note that the counselor does not take sides, blame individuals, or provide simple answers or solutions but instead tries to understand how the difficulty arises, and assist the family in discovering its own resources for new ways of relating.
