Services at Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy are designed to ease the suffering of individuals using evidence-based methods and treatments. The care and understanding that are invested during the preparation of treatment plans, in counseling sessions, and throughout the period of treatment are what we uphold as mental health care providers.
Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy
Individuals face different challenges that affect their relationship with themselves and with other people. Since they come from diverse backgrounds, their ability to respond to adversities may be limited. Thus, the guidance and support of trained professionals will help deepen their understanding of their issues, evaluate their responses, and learn about coping.
At Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy, we maintain that although we are unique individuals afforded our own autonomy and free will, we are born into families. And being surrounded by these people helped us grow and become who we are today. With this, mental health professionals understand the role of the family system in individual and relationship maladjustments experienced by clients. Psychotherapy services are designed to provide suitable individual or systemic approaches to the concerns of individuals, couples, and families.
Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy is usually a series of one-on-one sessions and is proven beneficial to its target groups.
Clinical Supervision and Consultation
Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy acknowledges that the establishment of improved evidence-based practices in psychotherapy is indebted to the constant exchange of ideas and collaboration among mental health professionals.
For a trainee mental health professional, the supervision of senior experts contributes to acquired skills, training, experience, and understanding of the field. Similarly, clinical psychological consultation offers an outstanding venue for expert clinicians to discuss their concerns over specific cases in the field of their study.
-Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) Program
Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy does not fall short when it comes to qualified and trained mental health professionals. Under our clinical supervision services, we take delight in continuing to provide competent mental health services through our ACS-qualified professionals. Through this qualification, we assure clients of our dedicated, professional, and boundless dedication to serving and preserving the mental health needs of the community.
Intimate Partner Violence and Abuse (IPVA) Counseling
Although IPVA is a form of abuse commonly identified among women, some men also experience this. Intimate Partner Violence is any behavior demonstrated in an intimate relationship that causes physical, psychological, or sexual harm to the people involved in the relationship. It is commonly demonstrated through acts of physical violence, sexual violence, emotional abuse, and controlling behaviors.
Mental health experts at Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy regard victims of this violence as most in need of emotional support and moral encouragement. While we value confidentiality and promote the mental health of clients, most of our work is focused on designing and implementing treatments that will help clients to overcome maladaptive behavior, poor decision-making skills, trust issues, and other manifestations of IPVA. We, clients, regain control over themselves and foster a support system that will help them value themselves more.
Pre & Post Adoption Counseling (PAC)
Adoption is the legal act of taking a child to be one’s own. It is a long process that demands attention not only for paperwork but for the psychosocial and emotional changes it may bring to the parties involved.
The pre-adoption process is a stage when people who choose to adopt face different adoption options. The adoption must take place under state rules. Consultations can help adopters make clear and informed choices and prepare the resources needed to begin the process.
There will come a time in their life when adoptees will be told of the truth of their parentage. Their ability to respond to and cope with this event is affected by a myriad of factors: the way they are brought up, their relationship with their adoptive parents, and the environment. Providing adoptee counseling will open a strong support system for their concerns.
Adoptee counseling is also essential for adoptees who are aware and involved since the beginning of the adoption process. Providing guidance and support will help them manage their feelings and prepare for a life with their adoptive parents.
The post-adoption process covers areas of concern involving the adoptive parents and adoptees’ adjustment to their family setting. It explores further emotional, psychosocial, and communication concerns that are observed in the process.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
Children who have traumatic experiences bear the burden of being unable to heal from the scars of distressing events. The unreleased emotional shock is translated into physiological concerns such as vomiting and loss of bowel. Providing support and guidance to resolve these negative experiences will help them live better lives.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based treatment that uses cognitive-behavioral principles to prevent and treat posttraumatic stress and depression. At Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy, we value the experiences of your children and we work to provide the necessary psychosocial assistance to restore peace and positivity to their youth.
Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP)
Exposure and Response Prevention is a method that encourages people to gradually face their fears and provoke obsessive thoughts without completely removing them from the distressing situation. The principle of this therapy is to provoke people into performing coping skills when subjected to triggering situations. In relation to its purpose of teaching people to face their fears, ERP is used as a significant method in treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD.)
At Bridging Pathways Psychotherapy, ERP is just one of a series of treatments used to address psychosocial concerns. We meet with clients to know about their psychosocial symptoms and how often these symptoms affect their daily living. From there, we craft a comprehensive treatment plan to manage specific issues, such as OCD and intrusive thoughts.
