Mental health and wellness involve a complex web of factors in an individual’s life.
We use a variety of services and therapies to improve the lives of the people we serve.
You have the desire for change. A therapist can guide you on your journey toward personal growth and a more satisfying life in our community.
Counseling and Therapy is:
Private: What you say in a session with your therapist is completely confidential except for disclosure required or permitted by law. We are bound to that by professional ethics and by Wyoming State Statute. See complete details of our HIPAA privacy practices here.
Personalized: Every client background, experience, and need is different. We meet you where you are.
Collaborative: If you put in the effort with your therapist, you can make progress together. We work with you towards change, but we cannot do it alone.
A Process: Therapy is not a quick fix, it takes time.
Normal: Life’s challenges, ups and downs mean many, many people need therapy at some point in their life. Like going to medical therapy, counseling is a way to take care of yourself and to be your best self.
Our Methods and Standards
JHCCC therapists are trained in a variety of nationally-renowned therapies approved by the National Alliance on Mental Health.
Depending on a client’s situation and path to mental wellness, a therapist may suggest one of the following:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Providing the skills to increase awareness of negative interpretations, and of behavioral patterns which reinforce distorted thinking. Developing alternative ways of thinking and behaving in order to reduce psychological distress.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): Providing mindfulness skills to control intense emotions, reduce self-destructive behaviors, and improve relationships. Helping to develop a balance between changing and accepting beliefs and behaviors.
- Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR): Enabling people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress through a series of detailed protocols and procedures that helps the brain’s information processing system naturally move toward mental health.
- Family Therapy: A type of counseling to help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. It is often short term, may include all familar members or just those able or willing to participate. Sessions can teach skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times.
- Medication management: Psychiatric consultation and assessment for medication.
- Other nationally approved therapies as appropriate
