We offer an innovative and unique approach to therapy at Dodini Behavioral Health that allows clients to do individual therapy, couples/family counseling, and group psychotherapy, to focus on a long-term strategy for mental and emotional well being. Our co-therapy approach to couples and group allows couples to work with a male therapist and a female therapist together for the most effective approach to address the given issues or goals. This model enhances the degree of safety and security in the process, allowing people to take risks to be vulnerable. We believe this is an essential pre-requisite for intimacy, connection, and fulfillment in our lives.
We will usually recommend that a person start therapy by doing individual sessions. The frequency of sessions depends on the needs and goals of the client, but we encourage weekly sessions, in the beginning to establish a relationship and get a clear understanding of the goals and implement the treatment plan. You’ll want to spend the first 3-5 sessions just making sure it is a good mutual fit between you and the therapist.
After getting a degree of connection to the individual therapist, we often recommend that our clients enter a psychotherapy process group with the co-therapy team. We believe very strongly in the combination of individual and group psychotherapy and have found it to be an extraordinarily powerful way to faster, more lasting changes for good in all aspects of our lives. You’ll be able to read more about our group psychotherapy approach here.
Sometimes having help from inside the walls of your own home is also a great advantage for your growth and development. You may want to engage your significant others–a spouse or other members of your family in your work. You may find that couples therapy may be a benefit. When two people are engaged in the process of individual growth, the couple can’t help but grow. Because we work as a co-therapy team, it is easy for us to meet any number of your needs in a variety of ways.
Our multi-modal, co-therapy model allows people to take greater risks and be more vulnerable than other, more traditional approaches. This model is also proven to alleviate symptoms by helping individuals work through the issues that are preventing long-term, lasting success and happiness. We also work with couples in a more traditional
Many people come to therapy to get relief from uncomfortable symptoms like worry/anxiety, depression, or stress due to difficulty in relationships. Others may come at the suggestion of concerned physicians or friends and family members. At Dodini Behavioral Health we believe that symptoms are the result of a complex system of biological, emotional, and environmental factors. At our practice, we address all relevant aspects of these systems.
Couples therapy is most effective when both members of the couple feel safe, supported, and understood.
At Dodini Behavioral Health, we work in a co-therapy model–a male and a female therapist team–so that each person can do individual work and begin to understand strategies for most effectively communicating with his or her partner. This solo work is followed up with a session in which all four parties are present (both therapists and the couple). When two people honestly work on themselves and then come together for joint sessions, the couple can truly transform for the better.
We also work in “traditional” ways with couples and families. wherein one therapist is meeting with the couple or family.
Group therapy is appropriate for people with a variety of interests, problems, or challenges. It is especially effective for people who would like to improve and better understand their interpersonal patterns in relationships, whether these involve difficulties in social, academic, professional, romantic, or sexual relationships. It is also suitable for people who struggle with emotional difficulties such as anxiety or depression.
