Outpatient Psychiatric Services

At Footprints to Recovery, our psychiatric care services are designed to help you manage your mental health disorder through the use of medications and other forms of pharmacological treatments. Our comprehensive outpatient mental health services incorporate psychiatric evaluations, medication management, case management, and mental health education to treat the symptoms associated with your mental health disorder. 

Psychiatric Evaluations

At the start of your time in treatment, mental health professionals will conduct a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation to diagnose and understand your mental health disorders. These evaluations and assessments typically involve a detailed psychiatric interview where licensed clinicians will observe your mood, thought processes, and behavior. 

During a mental health evaluation, our team of psychologists and psychiatrists will ask a series of questions to develop a better understanding of your unique circumstances, including:

While the thought of a psychiatric evaluation might seem intimidating, it’s simply a way for healthcare professionals to better understand your needs and ultimately provide more effective treatment to target your symptoms. These evaluations are utilized to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns and needs during your time in outpatient care. These assessments also act as a guide to help monitor and manage your symptoms over time. 

If you are currently living with the negative effects of a mental health disorder, a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation can be instrumental in helping you heal and improve your quality of life.

Medication Management

Medication management is a form of mental health treatment that involves working with a psychiatrist to determine the best course of medication for your needs and goals. Depending on your treatment needs and preferences, mental health medications can help to reduce symptoms of mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety. In addition, medications can help you manage your moods and emotions so you can more effectively participate in therapeutic sessions.

Medication management services include: 

At Footprints to Recovery, our psychiatrists are highly trained and experienced in providing medication management services to ensure you receive the best comprehensive psychiatric care possible.

While receiving outpatient medication management services, you can work with one of our mental health professionals who will monitor and adjust medications as needed. We also provide medication education on side effects, safety information, and strategies for managing side effects and symptoms.

Integrative Case Management

Integrative case management is an important psychiatric tool that helps clients manage their mental health in an outpatient setting. During outpatient treatment, our mental health program combines traditional case management with psychosocial rehabilitation services that support your personal growth during the recovery process.

Our traditional case management services include:

Our psychosocial rehabilitation services include:

Integrative case management can help you stay on track with treatment plans, provide social skills training, and coordinate care between various providers and organizations involved in your care. Case management also helps to strengthen the relationship between you and your case manager, as well as providing support for mental health relapse prevention planning. In addition to all this, our case managers empower you by promoting self-awareness of strengths, weaknesses, needs, and goals for improved functioning. By utilizing integrative case management in our outpatient mental health treatment programs, you can benefit from a comprehensive approach to managing your mental health journey.

Mental Health Education

Our outpatient treatment programs incorporate mental health education and resources such as handouts, visuals, and writing exercises to encourage discussions and explore issues around mental health. We provide education and support to help you understand your mental health diagnoses, symptoms, triggers, and other factors that impact your well-being. 

As you progress through treatment, the knowledge you gain can help you to take the necessary steps to avoid triggers and practice coping skills for symptom management. Through self-exploration, you can also gain a better understanding of how your thoughts and feelings affect your behavior. With the help of mental health education and therapy, you can begin practicing healthier lifestyle choices which will help to improve your overall well-being. 

Our outpatient program also provides educational resources to teach family members the benefits of mental health treatment and provides guidance in supporting loved ones during recovery. 

Psychotherapy Services

Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is a form of mental health treatment. Often, people seek out therapy by itself or with medications when seeking treatment for mental health disorders. Throughout your time in psychotherapy, you can speak with a licensed mental health care professional to receive help in identifying a problem or finding solutions for a specific issue you are facing. 

Therapy provides a safe space where you can openly discuss your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors with the support and guidance of a trained mental health counselor. This type of support can be incredibly valuable as it can offer insights into what drives certain emotions or behaviors, as well as give you healthy tools to help you process and manage them.

Therapy Formats
Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a process of exploration and reflection with an experienced professional. During individual therapy, our counselors provide a safe environment where clients can explore goals, develop insights, learn new skills, and make positive changes. Individual therapy allows for a deeper understanding of your inner thoughts. For this reason, individual therapy can assist in the treatment of many mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addiction, relationship problems, or life transitions.

Group Therapy Improved Self-Esteem

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a setting with multiple individuals who come together to help each other. Group members provide support to each other and work together to achieve their goals. As peers share in group, you can gain insight into your thoughts and behaviors while learning from their experiences. Group therapy can also help to improve your communication skills, understand perspectives outside of your own, and learn how to resolve conflicts in healthy new ways. For this reason, group therapy is an effective form of treatment for various kinds of mental health disorders.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy

Family therapy helps families open up communication and increase their understanding of each other. Family therapy can help you and your loved ones identify negative patterns in the family system and learn new skills for positive change.  It can also provide an objective point of view from a therapist as well as offer support and guidance. For this reason, family therapy can offer each member of the family unit new insights to help them improve their relationships with one another.

Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy is a form of therapy that emphasizes the role of learning in developing and modifying behavior. It focuses on analyzing the relationship between environmental triggers and behaviors, teaching new skills to replace maladaptive behaviors, and identifying ways to promote positive change.

As a part of our comprehensive mental health treatment services, we provide several behavioral therapy modalities including:

Our licensed behavioral health counselors are informed on the impacts of unhealthy thought patterns and utilize their experience to help you identify, challenge, and change irrational beliefs that perpetuate harmful behaviors. In doing so, we aim to help you develop a healthier perspective on life so that you can work to reach your goals and become the best version of yourself.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based therapy based on the concept that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected. During CBT sessions, you can learn cognitive and behavioral techniques to become aware of your thoughts and how they affect your emotions and behaviors. 

Our CBT therapists provide assistance in uncovering your unhealthy core beliefs so that you can work to modify them. As you participate in cognitive behavioral therapy, you will gain the ability to identify, challenge, and change your negative patterns to develop a healthier mindset. For this reason, cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective treatment for a variety of psychological disorders such as anxiety, depression, addiction, and eating disorders.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based therapy that teaches core coping skills to make healthier decisions. As a modified form of cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT incorporates cognitive and behavioral elements within a skills-based approach to treatment. Initially developed as a specialized therapy for individuals with borderline personality disorder, DBT has proven to be an effective treatment for a wide range of mental health disorders that affect a person’s ability to cope with stress and rejection.

In general, DBT places a strong emphasis on the development of skills for mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. As our DBT therapists guide you through DBT skills training, you will be able to understand yourself and others, cope with powerful emotions, maintain healthy relationships, and tolerate stress.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a research-back therapy approach that helps individuals focus on the present moment, accept what cannot be changed, and commit to taking action. Our ACT therapists help individuals move towards a more meaningful life by increasing their ability to accept themselves and their emotions. The goal of this type of therapy is to help individuals live with greater clarity, purpose, and values in mind.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

We understand that trauma can deeply affect our client’s mental health and well-being. Coping with the effects of trauma is never an easy thing to do, which is why we incorporate trauma-informed care into our person-centered approach to mental health treatment. 

At our practice, we understand that every individual’s experience with trauma is unique; therefore, no single approach to healing will work for everyone. For this reason, we believe in the power of an integrated approach to trauma therapy that combines different evidenced-based treatment modalities such as:

This form of treatment offers a range of therapeutic activities designed to help you explore your feelings through acts of creativity such as:

Our trauma-informed therapists are knowledgeable about the effects of trauma and utilize their expertise to help you process traumatic experiences. In doing so, we aim to help you find peace and acceptance while working through your pain. In doing so, you can begin your journey to a healthier, more fulling future.

If you are currently living with the negative effects of a mental health disorder, a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation can be instrumental in helping you heal and improve your quality of life.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) is a specialized type of cognitive behavioral therapy that focuses on addressing the distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with trauma. This type of trauma therapy helps clients confront their fears and anxieties related to the traumatic experience in a safe, supportive environment. For instance, trauma-focused CBT techniques assist in challenging and modifying any negative beliefs resulting from trauma. For this reason, trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy for adults teaches clients how to manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so they can cope with stressful situations. By participating in TF-CBT, our clients can gain a greater sense of control over their lives and reduce symptoms of PTSD.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy technique that uses bilateral stimulation (eye movements) and emotional reprocessing to help individuals process difficult memories. Our EMDR-certified therapists help individuals to gain insight and understanding, as well as reduce the emotional intensity of their trauma-related memories and triggers. As a specialized form of trauma therapy, EMDR has been found to be an effective treatment for PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps individuals work through traumatic experiences by processing the harmful thoughts associated with them. While typical CBT sessions challenge cognitive distortions, CPT specifically targets thoughts and feelings linked to self-blame and guilt as a result of trauma. As one of the most utilized types of trauma therapy, CPT teaches clients how to identify unhelpful patterns of thinking and find new ways to cope. For this reason, cognitive processing therapy can treat a variety of trauma-related conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Exposure Therapy

Exposure therapy is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy that focuses on helping individuals confront their fears and anxieties in a safe and comforting environment. The goal of exposure-based therapies is to help individuals become less afraid of specified phobias by confronting the source of their fears over time. Our therapists help our clients to overcome their anxieties by gradually exposing them to what makes them afraid while helping them to build up their self-confidence.

Activity Therapy

Activity therapy is a powerful, evidence-based tool that utilizes creative self-expression for the treatment of mental health disorders. Also known as expressive therapy, activity therapy is built on the idea that engaging clients in enjoyable, stimulating activities can significantly impact their emotional well-being. 

This form of treatment offers a range of therapeutic activities designed to help you explore your feelings through acts of creativity such as:

As you express yourself with movement, music, art, or journaling, our trained counselors incorporate healthy coping strategies into each session. By participating in these activities, you can gain insight into your emotions and thoughts and learn new ways to manage stress. The personalized nature of activity therapy means that each client receives an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to their unique needs and ignites a new passion for life. 

If you are currently living with the negative effects of a mental health disorder, a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation can be instrumental in helping you heal and improve your quality of life.

Holistic and Wellness Services

Holistic therapy is an approach to healing that considers the whole person. It involves treating mental health disorders by addressing all aspects of a person’s life rather than just specific symptoms. In order to achieve this kind of comprehensive treatment, holistic therapists collaborate with you on a deeper level, addressing your underlying needs and imbalances to foster a more harmonious relationship between your mind, body, and spirit. 

Holistic therapy encompasses a range of wellness services such as:

These holistic and wellness services can help you reconnect with your own body through mindfulness practices as you learn new tools to manage powerful emotions, stress, and anxiety. By taking a whole-person approach, holistic therapy aims to promote true healing and lasting well-being. At its core, holistic therapy is about healing you, not your disorder.

Licensed & Experienced Mental Health Professionals

To ensure safe and effective treatment, it’s important to collaborate with a team of licensed mental health professionals who are experienced in your chosen form of treatment. All of our staff at Footprints to Recovery Mental Health strive to create a supportive and non-judgmental environment. For this reason, we can ensure that all of our clients can feel comfortable discussing their thoughts and feelings in sessions with their psychiatrist and therapist. 

While the relationship between a psychiatrist or therapist and a client is an incredibly important part of treatment, therapeutic healing isn’t limited to individual sessions. Our mental health programs also offer healing opportunities during group sessions with peers and family members. This provides multiple perspectives on stressful situations and allows for more open communication between peers and loved ones.
