Counseling and therapy sessions at Apex Psychological Care & Memory Center provide patients with the ‘tools’ needed to help them function and enjoy a better quality of life.

Through a variety of therapy techniques, our therapists work with each patient to identify and treat his/her emotional issue while helping them to better understand how their behaviors and decisions affect their lives. We believe this helps bring about meaningful changes that allow our patients to enjoy more balanced lives and relationships.

Our sessions

Counseling is not like a medical doctor visit. It requires a very active effort on the part of the patient for a successful outcome. Patients will have to work on things that are discussed with therapists during sessions and at home.

We assign a clinician based on each patient’s specific needs. Clinician’s work to help each patient set and reach goals that put them on the path toward better emotional well-being.

A patient’s needs are evaluated during the first session, which usually takes no longer than 45 minutes. After the initial evaluation, clinicians offer first impressions of your diagnosis, treatment options (e.g. therapy, medications, etc.) and a treatment plan.

This evaluation will help determine if the clinician is a good fit. If it is mutually agreed upon and the patient decides to pursue psychotherapy with the clinician, typically 45-minute sessions are scheduled once per week until the patient starts feeling better. As the patient improves, the clinician spaces the sessions further apart.

If medication is required, clinicians will refer him/her to a psychiatrist.
