Outpatient Mental Health Therapy
At Project Chesapeake, one of our core competencies is Mental Health Therapy. Within its scope, the individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained and licensed clinician — in a safe, caring, and confidential environment is utilized. Here, patients are encouraged to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Traditionally, people seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as long as clinically necessary to meet the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.
