Our Clinicians take a trauma-informed and strengths-based approach in their individual work and may use a variety of therapeutic models including but not limited to:
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills (DBT) **We are not a DBT certified program and offer only skills practice**
Our individual sessions last 50 minutes and will be scheduled based upon the treatment plan and schedule discussed in your initial assessment.
There is strong supportive evidence from research that shows group therapy can have a significant impact on one’s recovery. Group therapy not only allows you to interact with our clinicians but also gain other perspectives and support from your peers. Our clinicians are currently offering weekly CBT-based process groups for teens ages 13-18 and young adults 18-25. Group participants have the opportunity to connect to others’ experiences and practice therapeutic skills in a safe and confidential environment.
Groups are 90 minutes in length and require a brief group assessment prior to attendance to ensure group will meet individuals’ needs.
This intensive therapy program is catered for adolescents ages 13-17 (or 18 if still in high school) who are in need of a higher level of mental health care with minimal school interference. Participants in this program will engage in over 9 hours of therapy per week including:
Group Therapy, Weekly Parent Support Group, 60-Minute Individual Session, and Bi-Weekly 90-Minute Family TherapySession
Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT) is an evidenced-based brief structured therapy designed for families of adolescents with depression typically lasting 12-16 weeks on average. Therapists meet with the family together and the teen and caregivers separately to lead the family through five treatment tasks to enhance the bond, safety, and trust within the relationship in order to decrease the teen’s depressive symptoms and family conflict.
Our customized parent consultation and support services are designed to provide parents with the tools, support, and understanding they need to successfully navigate through the various levels of the mental health system. We offer monthly parent support groups as well as parent consultation services to meet your family’s needs.
Throughout their clinical experience, our therapists have seen benefits from incorporating family sessions into our teens’ treatment plan. Family sessions help adolescents improve their communication with their parents and helps parents gain insight into their teens thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while therapists assist parents in gaining additional ways to support and encourage their teen.
Family sessions will be scheduled based on your treatment plan schedule discussed in initial assessment and are 90 minutes long.
Music therapy is an adjunctive therapy that is experiential and active in nature. Music therapy harnesses the power of music to help individuals reach functional goals that may be co-addressed within other therapeutic relationships. Music therapy uses evidenced-based interventions to help decrease depression and anxiety symptoms, increase interpersonal skills, facilitate connection to others, promote insight, and more. Music therapy can only be administered by board-certified music therapists, and Queen City Counseling & Consulting is proud to have an MT-BC on staff to provide group and individual music therapy services.
