Adult Programs

Adult Outpatient Services

CLM provides office-based treatment for adults coping with a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), grief/loss, troubled relationships, life transitions, post-partum depression and other women's issues, physical, emotional and sexual abuse, alcohol and drug-related concerns.

Our integrated approach takes into consideration the link between a client's physical health and medical conditions and how they might impact mental health treatment.

Our professionals work with the client to develop an individualized treatment plan that is solution-focused, short-term and may include one or a number of the following Adult Outpatient Services:

Individuals - Our initial goal of therapy starts with building trust so that we can communicate in a safe setting and form a healing partnership. Through this partnership, we create an environment where it is acceptable to challenge, to experience difficult emotions and to attempt new, healthier ways of living.

Couples - Couples therapy is a means of resolving problems and conflicts that couples have not been able to handle effectively on their own. A CLM trained professional will sit down with both partners to discuss their thoughts and feelings. The aim is to help them gain a better understanding of themselves and their partners, to decide if they need and want to make changes, and if so, to help them to do so.

Family - Families function best when there are appropriate hierarchies and boundaries. When difficulties arise between family members, family therapy can be effective in re-establishing roles, boundaries and healthy communication.

Group - Group therapy offers individuals a safe and comfortable place where they can work out problems and emotional issues, gain insight into their own thoughts and behavior, and offer suggestions and support to others. In addition, individuals who have a difficult time with interpersonal relationships can benefit from the social interactions that are a basic part of the group therapy experience.

CLM provides comprehensive evaluations and treatment for substance use disorders. Services start with a thorough interview evaluating issues related to substance use/misuse and recommendations for treatment are developed.

Services are available to address issues related to substance use/misuse through individual or group counseling to develop coping skills and strategies and a relapse prevention plan in order to work towards and maintain sobriety.

Court ordered evaluations are also provided for individuals who are involved with the legal system and required to receive a thorough evaluation of substance use issues by a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC).

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a breakthrough non-drug treatment for major depression that is safe and proven-effective for patients including those who have not responded to treatment with antidepressant medications.

Reiki treatments at CLM are provided by a certified Reiki master. Reiki is a gentle method of hands-on or hands-off healing that taps into the individual's energy flow. Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body's systems and the regenerative processes of body and mind.

Reiki has been shown to be effective in increasing feelings of relaxation, reduction of physical and emotional pain and other symptoms of discomfort due to illness or imbalance within the body. Used by a rapidly growing number of hospitals and clinics in the United States and around the world, Reiki complements medical treatment, behavioral health services and massage therapy. Reiki is appropriate for individuals in any state of health.

Reiki appointments can be scheduled as 15 / 30 / 45 or 60 minute sessions.
