Treatment and Staff
Individuals come to Olympic Psychology Services for several reasons. Some are referred by outside agencies, which is most common is younger clients who need to be assessed for things like autism, ADHD, or learning disorders. There are also some cases when a client is being checked out at this facility due to a head injury to test for impaired functioning, or if there are signs of a mood disorder or dementia, for instance.
There are also several reasons why a client would come in on their own accord. It could be due to depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, big life changes and transitions, parenting concerns or substance abuse issues. The staff is well versed in a number of treatment methods and can provide individualized care. There are some instances where clients may be referred to receive more intensive treatment at another facility, if it seems like they won’t be served properly on an outpatient, individual basis. This can also be true in cases where the client may need some sort of medication management for issues concerning a dual diagnosis.
Common therapeutic methods employed during a counseling session includes CBT, EMDR, DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and other evidence-based protocols.
