OUR VISION

Doctors Park Mental Health Center provides a therapeutic setting and safe space to question and process through life struggles. Our services make it possible for individuals and families to survive and thrive in the community, avoid frequent hospitalizations, build supportive relationships, and make educated choices for improved overall health and well-being.  While working together, our professionals foster change and pose important inquiries strengthening individual feelings of self and enhancing interpersonal relationships.

We believe personal change occurs with an emotionally connected, collaborative relationship. We strive to maintain style that allows for a relaxed, open, friendly, and encouraging environment. This style allows the client to flourish while achieving their life goals-mental, physical, spiritual, social, vocational and interpersonal.

The First Session

The first session the therapist will gain information such as family history, presenting problem, and symptoms, this is called a Diagnostic Assessment.  The Diagnostic Assessment is used to help your therapist determine a diagnosis and get a better understanding of the presenting situation.

The intake forms are used to help the therapist gather information for the Diagnostic Assessment. These forms are completed prior to your first session. You have the option of printing them before hand or coming to your appointment a half hour prior to its start. If you plan on going through your insurance please bring your insurance card with you.

Forms

For adults 18 years or older, families, and couples please fill out the Client Registration Form and the General Contact Information Form.

If you are seeking services for your child or adolescents please fill out the Child and Adolescent Registration Form and the Child Contact Information form.

Group Sessions

Participate. Listen. Share. Find Perspective.

Mindfulness simply means becoming aware of our actual lives, and then living them as fully as we can. We spend so much of our time in our fantasies and fears, in all of our “what ifs” and “maybes.” This group is to help us break free of that. Using mediation, journaling, group reflection and other activities, we will explore our own real lives and discover together how to live there. This group is especially recommended for people who think they can’t do it.
This group is geared toward Therapists, Skills and Social Workers, Youth Workers, etc. who are actively using, or would like to be using anti-racist, anti-homophobic, anti-transphobic, feminist, etc. strategies in their practice.
Loss touches us all. We cannot avoid it. In this life, we can be sure that we will experience grief, pain, and loss. Sometimes we can move trough this grief without it making our lives unmanageable, and sometimes we need help to do that. This group is for everyone who is having difficulty with grief in their lives. We aren’t trying to move on, and we’re not trying to “get over” our grief, we’re learning to live fully with it. We will learn to name our grief, to see it in the context of our lives, and to find out in what ways it can actually support us. 6 week sessions.
Girls ages 8-13 will learn how to positively interact, socialize, and grow in today’s society while they gain healthy ways of coping, relating, and establish a positive self-image.
Join us for fun activities that focus on building and maintaining friendships and developing social thinking skills.  This group is open to grade school age children who are able to work safely in a small group setting. Felicia Wilson and Holli Boelz a Licensed Teacher in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorder will facilitate the group. Sessions are scheduled in 5 week increments. Cost is $45 for 5 punches! Current dates are June 7th, 21st, 28th and July 12th, and 26th future dates are to be determined.  An RSVP is needed for attendance.
It’s really hard growing up and trying to figure out who you are. Everybody in our lives has they own ideas about who we “should” be, which makes it hard to know who we actually are, and who we want to be. This group is for young people who want work on this together. Using group discussion, guest speakers, and other activities we will explore all the different pieces that make us us. This includes our language, gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, and culture. Everyone, regardless of how you identify, is welcome in this group. 6 weeks long.
Veterans will learn how to effectively deal with difficult emotions that arose from their time in the military. They will also be provided a safe and confidential place to express their thoughts, fears, and emotions surrounding the topics such as family, interactions, etc. Veterans will be able to receive education and support in which they can try to utilize in their life. The group will meet for 60 minutes once a week.
Focused on providing family members a space to openly discuss the feelings they are having in regards to their loved one/s who were or still are in the military. The members will be provided education on how to deal with specific issues such as depression, anxiety, etc. and how to effectively help their loved ones through these difficult mental illnesses while also exploring their own mental health. This group therapy will meet for 60 minutes once a week.
