Psychological and Therapy Services
In addition to daily group psychotherapy, which all patients receive, Fairmount Psychological Service may refer you for individual therapy to support your efforts towards stabilization and improved mental health. Individual therapy can help you make decisions aimed at achieving your treatment goals. It can help you learn to appreciate and use your strengths so that your values match your choices. Individual therapists at Fairmount will offer you options and tools you could use to take the next step in your recovery.
Sometimes your treatment team will recommend and offer to you the choice of individual therapy, or you may request to meet with one of our therapists. One of our strengths is the diversity of therapists we can offer. Our Creative Arts therapists use a variety of modalities to help you learn about and express yourself, and start to make desired changes. Our Cognitive Behaviorally trained therapists, Professional Counselors, and Psychologists-in-training offer a variety of perspectives and opportunities for collaboration while you’re here. If you and your team believe individual therapy would be a benefit to the work you do while at Fairmount, your therapist would become a part of your treatment team during your stay.
Fairmount therapists know that a therapeutic relationship based on safety and on what is known to aid recovery fosters hope, healing, and growth. Therapy at Fairmount is a collaborative process. Each therapist understands that change can happen best when they and you work together on the needs most relevant to you, when you can experience being understood, and when you’ve made the choice to begin this important work.
