Treatment and Staff
Clients entering treatment with Stone first undergo a comprehensive assessment that helps to create the most effective action plan. Stone offers a highly-personalized and practical treatment approach that utilizes solution-based psychotherapy. Stone offers counseling for individual clients, couples, families and children of all ages, and treats clients struggling with a wide array of emotional and behavioral issues as well as stressful life events like divorce. In addition to counseling, Stone also offers parent coaching and stress management techniques. Consistent in her solution-oriented approach, her parental coaching provides direct advice and equips parents with tools they can use that day.
While delving into childhood issues may be helpful, solution-oriented therapy helps clients feel better immediately. The length of care varies depending on the specific needs of the client. While some individuals require short or long-term treatment, most therapy is scheduled as weekly 50-minute therapy sessions. Stone believes that “time off” between sessions is an integral component to the treatment process. Stone believes that therapy is most effective when the client is a fully active participant. As such, she provides a therapeutic environment built on mutual respect and understanding, and expects clients to take responsibility for their own actions as well as their treatment. Be it changing negative behavior patterns, developing healthy habits or boosting self-esteem, Stone provides clients with practical, concrete strategies and proven techniques that they can employ to enact positive change.
