Counseling & Therapy Services

The decision to begin therapy is a highly personal one! 

While therapy may be more obviously helpful if you are struggling with mental health concerns, have experienced trauma, or are experiencing a sudden lapse in performance, counseling is intended to help all individuals live better. It’s important to know that wanting to improve, wanting more support, or simply feeling curious about the process are enough of a reason to start therapy. Reflect on the questions below to determine if you may benefit from seeing a therapist or sport psychologist.

1. Do you feel especially overwhelmed or stressed with current life events?
2. Does it feel difficult to share your current thoughts & feelings with friends, family, and/or loved ones?
3. Do you feel as though you’re lacking emotional support?
4. Have you exhausted other options to solve your current dilemma or provide relief to your current circumstances?
5. Have you noticed changes in your sleeping, eating, or attentional patterns?
6. Are you experiencing difficulties in your personal or professional relationships?
7. Are your current concerns interfering with your day-to-day life? Preventing you from achieving or performing the way you would like to be?

If you answered yes to 3 or more of these questions, it may be especially beneficial for you to seek professional support.

We also want to note our deep understanding of how difficult it can be to begin therapy or see a mental health provider. It may be that your concern is rooted in shame in speaking about circumstances that bring pain, the fear of losing confidentiality, or the worry of the stigma that accompanies seeking mental health care. Maybe it feels difficult to ask for help. It may be that your concern is rooted in worry or anxiety about the financial burden that treatment can bring. Please do not hesitate to share your concerns about beginning therapeutic or consultative services with us and we will work to address your concerns and accommodate your needs.

Individual Therapy

At Advantage PMPC, individual therapy is a collaborative process between a therapist and a client in a one-on-one setting. Our priority in establishing an individual therapeutic relationship is to create a confidential, supportive environment for clients to confidently learn skills and increase self-awareness to reach their personal and professional goals.

Our licensed and license-eligible providers are trained to help others make the personal, professional, and/or organizational changes they are striving to see. Advantage PMPC providers utilize a variety of evidence-based practices to help our clients identify symptoms, adopt more adaptive patterns of thought, and learn the skills to improve the quality of their life and performance. Common concerns that bring individuals to therapy include (but are not limited to):
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Food/Eating issues
  • Family issues
  • Insomnia
  • Sexuality
  • Attentional Difficulties
  • Trauma
  • Relationship challenges

Group Therapy

Group therapy offers many benefits for those who are seeking support for a particular concern in a group setting. For many, group therapy offers an opportunity to learn that none of us are alone in our struggles, despite how unique we each may be! Hearing others live through similar life experiences reduces our thoughts and feelings that we are burdened in isolation.
Group therapy also offers individuals the chance to understand how they function in social relationships because of the safe atmosphere the group provides. Group members often develop close relationships in which they are able to give and receive honest feedback from others who care.
Group members often appreciate the safety net that group therapy provides. Skills and concepts are learned with growing confidence and allow individuals to implement new ways of relating in their day-to-day lives.
