Courage is the display of a decision
to let go of the familiar as you explore the unknown
-David L. Hanson
Assessments and evaluations are very common tools used in the mental health field to provide extra information and understanding about the areas you find yourself having difficulties with. These can help explore and determine the causes behind the challenges you are experiencing, answer specific questions, and provide insightful information to assist with the treatment planning and goal setting.
At Blooming Minds Joyful Hearts, PLLC we offer a variety of evaluations such as:
School Admissions Evaluations
Anger is a secondary emotional to a primary one. Usually when we feel that anger controls us and we become aggressive or hostile is because we are experiencing an emotional pain (such as disappointment, abandonment, fear, disrespect, etc.) and/or an unresolved trauma.
At Blooming Minds Joyful Hearts, PLLC we offer Anger Management Classes. Some anger management participants are mandated to take classes as a condition of probation, part of a plea bargain, or by their employer. Other anger management participants volunteer to take these classes and want a more therapeutic/mental health approach. Regardless of the reason why you are interested in this course, at Blooming Minds Joyful Hearts, PLLC we will help you examine the sources of your anger and we will teach you proper techniques to experience and express your anger.
Certificates will be issued after required hours are completed.
At Blooming Minds Joyful Hearts, PLLC we want to focus our energy on client care and therefore we chose not to be a provider for any insurance company. In our experience, most insurance companies do cover mental health services for out-of-network providers. What this means is that most insurance companies will reimburse clients for a percentage of the session fees. When in doubt it will be best for you to check in with your insurance company and verify your particular plan's benefits. If you would like to receive a reimbursement from your insurance company please let us know and we will be happy to provide you with a super bill.

Our therapists use a variety of psychotherapy theories and techniques such as Humanistic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness to help you manage the life difficulties you are experiencing. The particular approach chosen when working with you will depend on your background, needs, and concerns. The therapist will set goals together and might suggest that you work individually, in family sessions, or in group.
Each therapy session and treatment is different and unique since it depends on the personalities of the psychotherapist and the clients, and the particular problems brought into the session. We provide a compassionate, respectful, and understanding environment where you can open up and talk about the changes you are seeking and the feelings and thoughts behind them.
Therapy is not intended to literally answer all questions you might have about a current concern, but rather to be a collaborative process in which you gather effective tools that will help you manage life circumstance more efficiently and come to personal conclusions on how to solve problems.
How can therapy help me?
Psychotherapy can have benefits and risks. If therapy is effective you will feel relaxed, you will find clarity on how to handle a complicated situation, you will feel in control of your emotions, and form and maintain healthier relationships. While therapy increases feeling of happiness and peace, you might experience some discomfort, sadness, guilt, anger, and frustration throughout the process. This is why the therapeutic process calls for active effort, courage, and strength from your part to obtain positive results and durable life changes.
How long does therapy take?
Attending therapy once a week is common; however, appointments may take place on a more or less frequent basis, depending on your needs and particular circumstances. Some people report resolving their concerns within a few sessions while others stay in therapy over the course of several months. The length and frequency of your treatment will depend on your concerns as well as additional themes that may come up during treatment.
Is therapy confidential?
The vast majority of information disclosed in therapy is protected by state law and by the rules of this profession. All information concerning you is held confidential and is released only through procedures consistent with the law and professional ethics. The law outlines a few very specific circumstances in which we may be required to disclose information you share. These specific circumstances will be discussed further and in detail at the beginning of your first appointment.
What can I expect at my first appointment?
As soon as you walk in you will be ask to fill out some paperwork. Please arrive 15 minutes earlier to fill those out so you can maximize the therapy time. In the first session, we will focus on what brings you to therapy and it will give us an opportunity to get to know each other. We will also clarify what you would like to accomplish in therapy, determine if our services are appropriate for your therapy goals, learn about the therapy process, office policies, and confidentiality, and determine a preliminary treatment plan.
