Poet Della Hicks-Wilson on giving voice to your story...

"darling, you feel heavy because you are too full of truth.

open your mouth more.

let the truth exist somewhere other

than inside your body."

Services

PTSD & Trauma related stress

Traumatic events occur across the life span and are not  restricted to war.

Physical, emotional and sexual violations can contribute to lasting wounds that  impact how we see ourselves, others and the world. At ATT&C we take an integrative approach to trauma treatment, including  evidence-based interventions such as CPT, Prolonged Exposure, Written Exposure, DBT and others. 

We offer:

-Brief trauma focused work (4-8 weeks)

- Short term intensive options (2x/week for 4 or 6 weeks)

- Longer term options

depending on your present needs.

Racial & Identity related trauma

As a BIPOC person living in the United States and the world, your emotional and psychological wellbeing is often influenced

 

in ways you

define yourself and even the ways that

others define you.

We take that into account throughout treatment and keep identity in mind as we build treatment.

Veterans/MST

As a service member, you have sacrificed an incredible amount to fight for something that you believe in.

 

Sometimes that has meant putting yourself and others in harm’s way.

And sometimes the threat has come from unexpected places.

 

We know that the veteran’s story is unique and there is no one size fits all approach.

 

Even the struggles of war don’t hit everyone the same.

 

Not everyone can hear the stories you have to tell, but we can.

When you are ready to talk, we are here to listen.

Grief counseling

Grief is a complex dance between learning

to live with loss

while continuing to

find meaning in life following loss.

 

The path is not straightforward and often not easy.

 

We work with acute and complicated grief, using exposure, acceptance/mindfulness and emotion focused approaches

Depression/Anxiety

Depression can often feel like walking around with a boulder tied around your neck

and

anxiety can often feel like the low hum of an

engine that won’t turn off.

Both can become disruptive and distracting to a life of meaning and fulfillment.

 

Our work recognizes the impact of depression and anxiety on your life without insisting that you be defined by them.

Individual Therapy

Through  one-on-one sessions with your therapist, you will work together to face the issues that have kept you stuck.

 

Treatment goals are decided collaboratively.

 

Sessions often take place on a weekly or biweekly schedule although there may be some flexibility for more infrequent sessions.

Life transitions

In The Parable of the Sower, Octavia Butler wrote

“everything you touch, you change; and everything you change, changes you.”

 

Change, transition and transformation come in every person’s life.

We cannot always choose these transitions and changes, but we can work to prepare for them, respond effectively to them and thoughtfully explore how we have been impacted by them.

 

We use our therapy sessions to do just that.

Trauma Focused

We offer trauma focused therapy designed to aid recovery from PTSD and trauma related disorders.

 

Interventions include:

 

  • CPT

  • Prolonged Exposure

  •  Written exposure therapy

  • Treatment for survivors of childhood abuse and interpersonal violence

  • DBT techniques

  • Mindfulness-based approaches and others.

All Hands In

Group Therapy

Groups offer the opportunity to experience the power of human connections.

 

They remind us that although each of us live unique lives, others are walking along beside us and may live with the same questions, worries, insecurities and challenges that we do.

 

At ATT&C, we offer varying groups throughout the year. Inquire by email or phone.

 

Examples have included groups focusing on Black women and wellness, supporting the mental health of entrepreneurs and also mindfulness groups.

TELEHEALTH  

Presently, the majority of therapy sessions are held virtually although some limited in person options are available.

Fee Schedule:

Should I invest in therapy?

Good question.

Clients often ask about the cost of mental health services.

I like to think about the cost of NOT getting the help you need.

Think about how much emotional energy and psychological space the issue takes up.

What could you be doing with that space instead?

Is there a business you could be building, a relationship you could be growing or an adventure you could be experiencing?

How many sleepless nights, "bad" days and disrupted relationships has this concern cost you?

How many moments of confusion, uncertainty, sadness or fear have stopped your life in its tracks?

Whether you decide to work with us or not, we hope you find exactly what you need.

We hope you invest in you so you can live the meaningful, full life you are meant to live.

We presently are considered "out of network" for all insurance carriers

and provide a Superbill to assist with reimbursement from your insurance carrier.

Most insurance plans reimburse the cost of out of network services 40-80%.

We accept healthcare savings plans as well as some therapy vouchers provided by certain mental health support organizations.
