Psychiatric Consultation

Clinicians Jay, Sabrina and Bernadette are able to offer psychiatric consultations to clients. Using the platform PMVC, the clinicians are able to provide collaborative care involving a virtual meeting with the client, therapist, and psychiatrist. 

PMVC joint sessions enable your therapist to work collaboratively with you, your primary care physician, and a psychiatrist.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental health issues. They differ from other mental health professionals because they can provide clinical diagnoses, suggest medications and monitor them to ensure the patient is feeling their best.

The psychiatrist will only be present via video conferencing. With your consent, the psychiatric consultation will occur in your therapist’s office if you prefer (and conform with your ST provider), while your therapist is present in the room or online with you. 

Why do a PMVC session? This type of session can benefit clients from providing possible options for things such as virtual diagnosis, medication recommendations, among others, all provided within the comfort of the therapy environment.

Individual Psychotherapy

Individual Psychotherapy is typically a longer-term treatment for mental health and related concerns. According to numerous research studies, change occurs when clients participate in at least 8 to 24 sessions. We have some clients who complete a number of sessions to reach therapy goals and others who continue to come for years for mental health check-ins.

Individual therapy, commonly denoted as psychotherapy or counseling, encompasses intimate, one-on-one therapeutic sessions between a therapist and a client. The approach empowers the therapist to customize interventions according to the unique needs, concerns, and objectives of the individual in collaboration with the individual client (Norcross & Lambert, 2018).

Diverse therapeutic modalities, including but not limited to cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and humanistic therapy, are adeptly deployed based on the client's preferences and the nuanced nature of the issues under consideration (Prochaska & Norcross, 2018). Research underscores the efficacy of individual therapy in fostering personal growth, facilitating self-exploration, and adeptly addressing specific mental health challenges (Lambert, 2013).

Family or Couples Therapy

Family and Couple therapy can benefit participants in various stages of their relationships. In family and couples therapy, we seek to look at the problems objectively and externally to help the participants find a common ground from which they can start an honest evaluation and move forward. This service is conducted over several sessions as a family or couple as well as individual members of the family unit.

Clinicians offering couples counselling include Jose (Family Systems), Jay (neurodivergent couples), Sodaba (Gottman Approach), Bernadette (Family Systems, Adlerian, Structural/Strategic Family Therapies).

Family therapy, colloquially termed systemic therapy, is an integrative therapeutic modality that centers on augmenting communication proficiency and mitigating conflicts within a familial framework (Nichols & Schwartz, 2008). Practitioners collaborate with the entire family to comprehend intricate relational dynamics, tackle prevalent issues, and fortify the overall functionality of the family unit (Minuchin & Fishman, 1981). This therapeutic approach operates on the premise that individual struggles frequently exhibit interconnections with family dynamics, and fostering positive changes within the familial context can significantly contribute to individual well-being (McGoldrick et al., 2011).

Psycho-Educational Assessments

Allison Caldwell continues to offer psycho-educational assessments for youths between the ages of 5 and 16 years concerning learning disabilities and developmental disabilities.

A standardized psychoeducational assessment package with Allison includes intake, testing appointments, interviews, and a feedback session. You will also receive a psychological report providing detailed results of the testing and recommendations necessary for the youth's well-being and educational needs. The comprehensive psycho- educational assessment cost is $2900+ fees. 

Please note that our team of Psychotherapists and Psychotherapy Interns cannot perform diagnosis or psychoeducational assessment. We can, however, provide contact information for external practices who can perform these processes, upon request.

At Street Therapy, for clients age 16+ we can provide mental health screeners and summary reports. Some clients seek summary reports or mental health screeners purely for the purpose of knowledge about themselves and to inform the Psychotherapy process.

For summary reports and mental health screening processes, rates are as follows: 

$125 - 170 initial session
$450 – 600 scoring of assessments, report writing
$125 - 170 feedback session

The low-cost counselling service is made possible with some community partnerships and performed by practicum interns and is subject to supervision. Supervision will require permission to record for review. The number of low-cost sessions is limited to 10 to 12 with a possible extension with a new supervised intern entering practice.

Group Services

If you're considering psychotherapy, several options are available. One of those options is group therapy. Depending on the nature of your problem, group therapy can be an ideal choice for addressing your concerns and making positive changes in your life.

Group therapy constitutes a structured therapeutic approach wherein a compact and diverse assembly of participants convene regularly, guided by a trained therapist, to openly discuss and explore their individual struggles, experiences, and emotions (Yalom & Leszcz, 2005). This collaborative setting encourages members to contribute mutual support, offer constructive feedback, and share insightful perspectives, thereby fostering a secure and nurturing space for personal exploration and holistic growth (Norcross & Goldfried, 2005). Research indicates that group therapy demonstrates efficacy in addressing a diverse array of psychological issues (Burlingame et al., 2016). Furthermore, it serves as a valuable platform for enhancing interpersonal skills among participants (Tasca et al., 2015) and plays a pivotal role in cultivating a profound sense of belonging within the therapeutic community (Lazarus, 1971).
