AFTERCARE

Sad on Couch

Higher levels of care / Aftercare / Day treatment

Has therapy been unsuccessful in healing trauma, depression, anxiety, internal conflict, school or work avoidance, or somatic symptoms so that you feel so distressed you are considering a hospital stay?

Do you want to try something else as a last resort? We can meet more than once a week until you are feeling stronger.

 

In a supportive environment, we can explore thoughts and feelings that cause you to act in ways that undermine your success or are even self-destructive. You have the power to be in control of your own good choices and your destiny. We will focus on building inner strength and resilience, and on repairing and strengthening family and peer relationships. 

If you or your child or teen is coming home from a hospital stay, residential, or wilderness program, it is understandable that while you are excited about a new beginning, you are also scared. In order to continue recovery and avoid gaps in care, I will help you or your teen continue to practice DBT and Mindfulness skills and continue the process of deeper, meaningful inner growth.

I can provide referrals to other therapists for family members who need support through this process, and have the most experienced attorneys, psychiatrists, tutors, and appropriate schools at my fingertips.
 

How it works:

I meet with parents, and then the family as a whole in a few consultation sessions, and then we will collaborate and come up with a plan that will work for you and your family. If that means that your teen continues to need residential care or therapeutic boarding school, often, a parent who undergoes his/her own therapy is better equipped for meetings with their teen and is better able to help recovery. It can be incredibly empowering personally, and always has a profound healing effect on our children.

 

I understand that you are getting a lot of advice and recommendations and it is often hard to know what is right for your family. I can speak with you, your ed consultant, and other team members if you’d like, or quietly and privately figure out together what makes the most sense for you.
