SERVICES TYPICALLY COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE:
Psychotherapy – You will work with one of our providers, usually in weekly sessions, to address emotional distress, problematic behaviors, and troublesome ways of thinking.
Group Counseling – This is when several people in a group work together on a specific problem area they all share. They may be “revolving” groups in which new participants enter the group as needed and leave when they desire, or the group may be limited to a number of sessions in which all participants start and stop at the same time.
Child/Adolescent Counseling – Many of our providers are particularly trained and skilled in helping children and teenagers with problems typical to that age range. This includes helping parents deal with the problems of childhood and effective ways to parent.
Family & Marriage/Couples Therapy – Some of our providers are specially trained to deal with family and relationship matters. This form of psychotherapy takes a “systems” approach that focuses not on individuals, but on the particular group as a system that affects each of the group's members. Problems are viewed as the group's problems, not as an individual’s problems, and each member’s perspective is respected.
Psychological Testing – We provide psychological testing to support ongoing counseling provided by our people and a variety of other purposes. For example, we offer assessments for ADHD and learning disabilities. Not all testing services are covered by health insurance. Check with your insurance company for more details.
SERVICES NOT TYPICALLY COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE:
Coaching – This service consists of assisting and guiding you in addressing personal and professional goals. Your coach will help you clarify your goals, identify obstacles to them, develop strategies of change, and help you stay focused on achieving those goals.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP) – We provide employee assistance programs to the employees of the Charles County Government, the Charles County Sheriff’s Department, the Waldorf Volunteer Fire Department, and other employers on a contractual basis. If you work for one of these employers, you can call us at any time to schedule an appointment or consult on the phone. EAP services are designed to help employees with family or individual difficulties that can negatively affect their work performance.
Workshops, Seminars, Educational Classes - We are able to help you develop effective skills in a classroom setting. We currently offer anger management and parent consultation classes. However, we can put together classes in stress, depression, anxiety, weight control, and a whole host of other possible problem areas depending on the interests of the community.
Forensic Services – We routinely conduct evaluations and services that are ordered by the courts for a variety of legal decision-making purposes. For example, the courts may appoint us to recommend child custody and visitation arrangements, or to meet with children and parents of divorcing couples to enhance parent-child interaction.
