At Executive Mental Health, our clinical psychologists are trained to identify/clarify the condition that is affecting a patient, design a treatment plan to assist that patient, and work with the patient to implement that treatment plan in a successful manner.
The first contact involves an initial interview and the assessment of psychological symptoms, such as depression and anxiety, using industry standard measures. By measuring these symptoms, we establish a baseline that allows us to determine the effectiveness of ongoing treatment.
Treatment sessions vary depending, depending on the patient’s needs and the issues to be addressed. Typical outpatient sessions last 55 minutes. Every 8-12 weeks, follow-up assessments are conducted to re-evaluate the patient’s status, determine the effectiveness of ongoing treatment, and/or to consider whether any changes might be integrated into a patient’s treatment plan. Psychological services in an outpatient setting are typically held weekly, however may be provided more frequently depending on the needs of the patient and the issues to be addresses.
As the psychological symptoms improve, the frequency of treatment probably will decrease. Once symptoms have resolved to manageable levels, the necessity of ongoing treatment will be re-evaluated.
