Treatment

APMFCS will assist you developing a treatment plan that focuses on you and your family's needs and goals. Many treatment plan models include 5-12 sessions and are usually focused on:

  • Short-term counseling and interventions

  • Learning Coping Skills

  • Helping you to identify your problem area and creating goals to achieve personal growth

     Many times, we will allow our negative thoughts and emotions to control our actions. I will assist you with learning how to identify, challenge, and change these negative thoughts, negative emotions and negative actions that often lead to negative consequences.
