It is our philosophy to provide guidance when and where you need it most to create a positive impact in your life and your business.
Some people grapple and resist the idea of going to a therapist because they simply do not understand the process of therapy. Clients find themselves asking a myriad of internal questions such as: what’s actually going to take place. Who will initiate; and how long will the session be? New Perspectives, Inc. is dedicated in helping individuals identify and resolve issues which cause distress and concern. We want our clients to be well informed on what to expect during therapy and the types of therapeutic techniques used to facilitate treatment. Our goal for this process is to enable the patient to make an informed decision as well as lesson the anxiety of what to expect during the therapeutic process itself.
While it may not be easy to seek help from a therapist, it is hoped the patient will be better able to understand his/her situation and feelings and move toward resolving difficulties. We use our knowledge of human development and behavior, to make observations about situations as suggestions for new ways to approach them.
We work closely with primary care physicians in order to help the patient become mentally and physically healthy. Typically, clients are seen on a weekly basis and updates are provided to their primary care physicians. We will give weekly assignments, perform psychological tests and measures, and will facilitate family visits in order to continue the positive progress of the patient.
Individual: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist.
