Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is where you will be the sole focus of treatment. This allows the therapist to individualize treatment to your specific needs. If you’re ready to take control over your life, if you’re ready to address your struggles, then this might be the perfect fit for you.

Child & Adolescent Counseling (6-12)

Ages 6-8

Children’s main form of communication is play, so in therapy, we use play to help them process through struggles, trauma, behavioral issues, or other troubles. 

The participation of the parent/caregiver during therapy in this age range is critical to the process. 

Ages 9-12

Children/adolescents during this stage will still focus on play or games to help them process, but because they will be more verbal, parental/caregiver participation may be less necessary.

Group Counseling

Group therapy is where you, along with a few select individuals, will walk the journey of a specific struggle together. Some possible groups might include support for individuals who have struggled with domestic violence, codependency, anxiety, depression, etc. If you thrive in a group setting with the support of others, this might be a great option for you!

Couples' Counseling

Relationships can be difficult and it can be really helpful to have an outside perspective to help you and your partner to navigate any struggles in your relationship. If you and your partner are both willing to come and be a part of the therapeutic process, couples’ counseling might be a great fit for you!

Teen Counseling (13-18)

This is such a tough age! There are many changes that happen during this time of life and sometimes adolescents just need some extra support. If you’re a teen who is struggling emotionally, this might be a great fit for you!

EMDR

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an evidence-based form of treatment to help clients work through any form of trauma that they have experienced. Sometimes, trauma can get stuck in our brains and EMDR helps to get that trauma unstuck so that we can move forward in our lives. This form of therapy helps the brain to resume its natural healing process.

PCIT

PCIT (Parent-Child Interaction Therapy) is an evidence-based attachment intervention in which the therapist coaches a parent on how to communicate/ manage difficult behaviors/ set clear boundaries with their child in the context of play.  This modality works well with children, aged 2-7 years, experiencing difficult behaviors that are keeping them from doing well in school or engaging well with parents, siblings, and peers. PCIT can also be adapted to work with children with disabilities.

Family Counseling

Do you find yourself struggling with family relationships? This type of therapy is generally catered towards families who want to improve their bonding and communication skills as a family unit. Activities will be focused on family interactions, rather than individuals. If you and your family find that you are looking for healthier connection, this might be a great fit for you!

Parenting Support

Parenting can be a tough job! But don’t worry! We’re here to help. In this type of counseling, parents will learn techniques depending on the presenting struggles. This may include discipline, consistency, boundaries, how to have fun with your kids again, or something else!

Theraplay®

Theraplay is an evidence-based attachment intervention where the therapist works in conjunction with a parent in domains of nurture, engagement, structure, and challenge to address behavioral problems. This modality works well with children of any age. Theraplay works well with children of varying cultures and disabilities.

Child & Adolescent Counseling (0-12)

Ages 0-7

Children’s main form of communication is play, so in therapy, we use play to help them process through struggles, trauma, behavioral issues, or other troubles. 

If you’re wondering if therapy can really be done with babies and young children, the answer is YES! In this therapy, parents may learn techniques for bonding with their children, communication, sleep regulation, handling tantrums, and more. The participation of the parent/caregiver during therapy in this age range is critical to the process. 

Ages 8-12

Children/adolescents during this stage will still focus on play or games to help them process, but because they will be more verbal, parental/caregiver participation may be less necessary.

Our Approach

Our therapists come from a systemic approach, with a focus on attachment. What this means is that we view a client and their struggles in the context of relationships. We know that relationships and connection are incredibly important and our past and present relationships are what shape our perspectives, beliefs, and responses.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is talking to a therapist different than talking to my friend or mentor or pastor?

A therapist is specifically trained to help you navigate difficult life circumstances. A therapist can help you to gain new perspectives, learn how to approach problems, and how to move forward in a healthy way.

I see that RCC’s counselors are “marriage and family therapists”. Are they trained to see individuals as well?

Yes! All that “marriage and family therapist” means is that we view struggles in the context of relationships. We are trained to work with individuals as well as families and couples.

How do I know if I’m ready for therapy?

This is a great question! All that you need to be ready for therapy is a willingness to be vulnerable and to be willing to actively participate in the therapeutic process.

How long does therapy take?

While we wish that we could answer this question, there is no way to tell how long therapy might take. It depends on what someone is struggling with and their commitment to the process. With that being said, therapy is not generally a “quick fix” and will require patience with yourself and the process.

Does therapy actually work with kids and babies?

Yes! There is so much work that can be done with babies and very young children.  Parent/child interactions, parent/child bonding, sleep regulation, and tantrums are just a few of the issues that can be addressed in therapy.

How long are sessions?

Our sessions are 50 minutes long. In some cases, we are able to accommodate double sessions, depending on needs and scheduling availability.

Do you accept insurance?

Not at this time. Currently, we are a self-pay office. With that being said, we can provide receipts for services. Some insurance companies allow you to submit receipts to them for full or partial reimbursement of some services. Check with your insurance company for details about your specific plan.

Is therapy confidential?

Yes, therapy is generally confidential except for a few exceptions required by law. Some of these exceptions include: Suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse; if a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person; and if a client intends to harm themselves.

Do you provide teletherapy?

We are able to provide short-term teletherapy for our clients if it is necessary because of an illness or some other unforeseen circumstance. We do not, however, provide teletherapy on a regular, ongoing basis. Therapeutic work is most effective when both client and clinician are in the therapy room together.
