Therapy

Individual Therapy

Generally speaking, psychotherapy is aimed at helping clients develop more awareness of their interpersonal style and behavioral patterns, and then to develop strategies for making changes through the use of evidence-based intervention techniques that are individualized to meet the needs of each client. The goal of psychotherapy is to help the client resolve those issues that might interfere with the client's functioning and/or life satisfaction.

Group Therapy

Personal problems individuals deal with relate to both past and current relationships, and feelings associated with those relationships. The quality of relationships often directly affects life satisfaction and adjustment. Group therapy gives individuals an opportunity to deal with questions and concerns about their relationships in a supportive and interactive setting. Most groups are generally offered during the Spring semester.

Couples and Family Therapy

Couples therapy is available for relational partners working on communication issues, conflict resolution and sexual/intimacy concerns. Family therapy is not offered at this time due to staffing resource limitations. Typically, family therapy addresses such issues as ongoing family conflict, communication difficulties and change in family structure (e.g., divorce, death, etc.). We recommend the Texas Woman's University Counseling & Family Therapy Clinic at: https://twu.edu/counseling-family-therapy-clinic/ 940-898-2600.

Play Therapy

This service is available for both short and long-term clients and aims to explore emotions and process experiences for children and adolescents that may benefit from this type of therapy. Various modalities of this treatment are offered, such as cognitive behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and interpersonal/psychodynamic approaches.

Evaluations:

At the Psychology Clinic we aim to provide comprehensive and individualized psychological evaluations to the community. Evaluations are completed by graduate student clinicians under the supervision of a licensed psychologist. Common evaluations conducted within the clinic are:

Intellectual Evaluations

Intellectual testing involves a comprehensive assessment of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. This would include evaluating academic achievement and learning difficulties. Results are often used to inform recommendations for support in school, occupational, and home settings

Vocational Evaluations

Vocational interest testing is offered for adults with career or job-related concerns. Results are often used to inform clients of possible career directions and recommendations for increased job satisfaction.

Personality Evaluations

Personality testing is used to identify cognitive, behavioral and emotional needs or difficulties. Results are often used to inform clients of their unique personality characteristics, include areas of strength and growth.

Neuropsychological Evaluations

Neuropsychological testing is used to evaluate behavioral correlates of brain functioning to determine current cognitive abilities or difficulties. Results are commonly used to develop strategies for compensating for any cognitive limitations.

Psychodiagnostic Evaluations

Psychodiagnostic testing is used to identify current psychological concerns and possible diagnoses that may be distressing to an individual. Results are commonly used to inform recommendations for support in school, occupational, and home settings.
