Individual therapy, sometimes called counseling or psychotherapy, is a process where the therapist and the patient work together one-on-one to address the goals and needs of the patient. While patients always have the option to include others (ex. family, significant others, friends) in individual therapy, the therapist owes commitment and advocacy principally to the patient.
Couples therapy, sometimes called counseling or psychotherapy, is a process where the therapist works with couples to identify and resolve issues affecting the relationship. Here, the therapist owes primary commitment and advocacy to the relationship itself, though individual treatment goals may be identified and addressed, as well. At Vallis Mental Health, we request that each individual in the relationship begins the intervention with individual session(s) with the therapist. Then, in collaboration with the couple, the therapist will engage the patients in both couples sessions and individual sessions as indicated by the case presentation.
Group therapy, sometimes called counseling or psychotherapy, is a process where the therapist works with a group of individuals to identify and resolve similar issues that are common to each member of the group. Here, the therapist owes primary commitment and advocacy to the group dynamic created via relationships developed amongst group member(s). If individual treatment goals are identified, the therapist may recommend the group member seek additional therapy outside of the group setting. At Vallis Mental Health, we offer both open groups (new members may join the group at any time) and closed groups (new members can only join at particular times). Prior to joining either an open group or a closed group, we request that each new group member participates in an individual, intake session with the therapist to confirm group counseling will be appropriate for the patient, to obtain informed consent to participate in the group, to explain the purpose and objectives of the group, and to review rules and expectations of the group.

Vallis Mental Health is proud to offer telehealth services. Telehealth, sometimes called telecounseling or telemedicine, is a healthcare option where the therapist and the patient can conduct counseling sessions via digital technologies using the internet and a computer, tablet, or smart phone. Here, a therapist can deliver care to patients from a remote distance for sessions that do not require the patient to attend an in-office session.
The therapist will evaluate each session to determine if telehealth services are appropriate for the patient and case presentation.
We are currently only able to conduct telehealth services for patients who can access BOTH visual and audio.
Please be aware that availability of telehealth services may be impacted by state board regulations and insurance plans.
Vallis Mental Health is proud to offer A.D.H.D. screening using the Test Of Variables of Attention or T.O.V.A. It aids in assessing and evaluating treatment for attention deficits, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (A.D.H.D.) T.O.V.A. is an FDA-cleared computerized and objective test of attention and inhibitory control for ages 4 to 80+. It provides healthcare professionals with objective measurements of attention and inhibitory control. The T.O.V.A. provides information that is not available through self-report or the report of others. It is used along with a clinical interview and subjective measures (such as behavior ratings) for a more comprehensive picture of academic, social, and personal performance and impairment.
T.O.V.A. is for ages 4 & up.
