MendCenter clinicians meet with patients individually to treat a variety of mental health conditions. We specialize in the treatment of chronic and severe mental illness, which includes schizophrenia spectrum disorders, personality disorders and mood disorders, such as major depression and bipolar disorder, as well as anxiety disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Treatment of these disorders often includes suicide monitoring and management of suicidal tendencies. It may also include medication management as needed.
Individual psychotherapy is best suited for persons who have a question about themselves. These questions typically center around a symptom and gradually expand from there. This is especially true at the beginning of treatment.
For example, someone experiencing significant anxiety may seek therapy in order to reduce their symptom, but over the course of therapy begins to realize that easing the symptom is not the end goal itself. It is simply a consequence of negotiating with the symptom.
