Strength-based initial assessment:
It is important to us at Forward Choices that each client start services with an initial strength-based assessment. This helps us work collaboratively with the client to develop individualized treatment goals focused upon their personal and unique needs.
Individualized treatment planning:
Through collaborative treatment planning, the client is able to be involved in the decision making and goal selection process while developing their individual treatment plan.
Evidence-based therapeutic interventions:
All of our therapists are specifically trained in the implementation of evidence-based treatment protocols. Each therapist focuses time and attention on a yearly basis to continue to participate in education and training in the provision of current and up to date treatment interventions.
Individual therapy services center in on the specific needs of the client as a person. Through individual therapy, the client is offered the opportunity to develop a functional therapeutic relationship with their therapist as they work toward self-discovery and personal change.
Marriage and Family Therapy:
By participating in therapy with family members, the client and family can work together to create life change together. Family therapy creates an opportunity to access increased support and understanding within the family unit that is closest to the client.
Animal Assisted therapy:
Forward Choices currently has two therapy dogs available to participate in individual therapy sessions. For many clients, the assistance of the therapy animal can offer increased comfort in the session. The therapy animals are very in tune with the client’s emotional content and have the ability to extend a level of comforting understanding in addition to that provided by the client’s primary therapist.
The utilization of art in the therapy setting offers another medium for the client to be able to freely express their internal thought and emotional content.
