Dependencies and Addictions
For many of us when the topic of addictions or substance dependencies arises, we immediately think of alcohol or certain drugs like marijuana. However, the domain of addictions can span a variety of sources. Nicotine, prescription medications, sex, and relationship dependencies are all also within the scope of previous addiction-based services that Abby has offered to clients. With compassion at the core of her therapeutic approach, Abby tackles this sort of treatment by integrating a variety of therapeutic models that are suitable for the individual in need of treatment and/or navigating recovery. Abby understands that there are a plethora of risk factors and motivations behind substance (or behavior) dependencies out there, and she recognizes that everyone is different. As such, you will receive highly individualized care that remains judgment free and with your goals in mind. Everything will occur at your own pace with gentle, yet intentional guidance.
General Mental Health Services
In addition to some of the provided examples above, Abby Bernstein, LMHC provides general mental health counseling sessions that can be tailored to the needs of an individual client, a couple, or even an entire family. When providing individual psychotherapy sessions, Abby utilizes a combination of emotion-based theories and behavioral models to help with the process of uncovering fundamental (yet oftentimes harmful) incentives for the problematic behaviors or thought processes. The typical session lasts roughly 50 minutes, and it is advised that sessions be scheduled weekly, if not bi-weekly. Regarding family therapy appointments, Abby adapts her therapeutic approach and strategies to allow for 60-90 minute sessions that focus on addressing conflict resolution, communication improvement, stressor identification, and a suite of tools to allow each member of the family unit to feel well-equipped to successfully navigate discord. Family-based therapy sessions are recommended to occur somewhat regularly, although it comes down to the individual needs of the family whether this means weekly or every other week.
