Counseling and Therapy is:

Private: What you say in a session with your  therapist is completely confidential except for disclosure required or permitted by law.  We are bound to that by professional ethics and by Wyoming State Statute. 

Personalized: Every client background, experience, and need is different.  We meet you where you are.  

Collaborative: If you put in the effort with your therapist, you can make progress together.  We work with you towards change, but we cannot do it alone.  

A Process: Therapy is not a quick fix, it takes time.  

Normal:  Life’s challenges, ups and downs mean many, many people need therapy at some point in their life.  Like going to medical therapy, couseling is a way to take care of yourself and to be your best self.  

 

Our Methods and Standards

JHCCC therapists are trained in a variety of nationally-renowned therapies approved by the
National Alliance on Mental Health.

Depending on a client’s situation and path to mental wellness, a therapist may suggest one of the following:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Providing the skills to increase awareness of negative interpretations, and of behavioral patterns which reinforce distorted thinking. Developing alternative ways of thinking and behaving in order to reduce psychological distress.

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): Providing mindfulness skills to control intense emotions, reduce self-destructive behaviors, and improve relationships. Helping to develop a balance between changing and accepting beliefs and behaviors.

  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR): Enabling people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress through a series of detailed protocols and procedures that helps the brain’s information processing system naturally move toward mental health.

  • Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT): A short-term, structured, problem-focused approach to the treatment of conduct problems, associations with antisocial peers, early drug use and the accompanying maladaptive family interactions (relations).

  • Other nationally approved therapies as appropriate

 

Other Client and Community Services
