Elements of Motivation provides Home Based Clinical Services. For individuals and families who are unable to attend sessions in the office, due to a variety of reasons, our Therapists and Counselors will come to your home or a mutually agreed upon public location that you feel comfortable receiving services. To inquire if you are eligible for in home services, please contact our office.
Individual therapy consists of working one-on-one with a licensed therapist in a supportive setting. In this safe and secure environment a person can delve into the feelings, belief systems, and behavior patterns, which underlie challenges or obstacles they currently face. Therapy may involve unearthing significant memories, or recognizing areas where the client wants to make changes. Developing self-awareness and a deeper understanding of themselves and other people can also be part of a personal-growth journey a client can experience when working with a competent therapist.
Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy family members participate in to help address internal conflicts within the family unit and learn healthier ways to communicate. Mental health professionals such as a psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, or a licensed therapist normally provide family therapy services. Some problems family therapy deals with include marital or financial stress; troubled relationships among family members; or the influence of drugs, alcohol, or a mental disorder, which affect all family members.

It should go without saying that you can expect absolute privacy and confidentiality. There may be instances when you choose to allow information to be released; in that case, your Therapist should obtain a signed consent form from you. If your therapy is provided as an employment benefit, there should be no requirement for the Therapist to report back to an employer about your progress.
During scheduling of your first appointment we will ask for some basic information from you to assess if our practice can provide you with appropriate treatment. If we determine we can help you, we will schedule an in-take appointment. During this initial session a therapist will evaluate you, asking about your background and why you are seeking treatment. This is the occasion upon which you can begin to establish a harmonious working relationship with the therapist. Any questions you need answered about our service, including privacy practices, can be responded to by the therapist at this session.
The first session is a collaborative effort by both participants to determine the best treatment plan. If it is decided the therapist assigned to you is a good fit, we will set up a regularly scheduled appointment (usually on a weekly basis), according to the availability of both participants. Therapy sessions normally run about one hour. The second session with the therapist is about goal-setting and what are your expectations of therapy, if any. From this second session forward, you and the therapist will work to achieve the best outcome for your mental health and / or personal growth issues.
