At the Midtown Center for Personal Development we view each person individually and seek to understand each client’s unique needs and goals. Services begin with an initial consultation with one of our experienced therapists.
The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to tell your story and for us to listen and understand your history, your reasons for seeking help, your present conflicts, and the changes you would like to make in your life. After one of our therapists meets with you and writes up your report, we will match you with the therapist with whom we believe you will work best and with whom you will be encouraged to develop and make changes in your life.
• Therapy (Individual, Couple, Group)
• Communication Sessions (Individual, Couple, Family)
• Parent Sessions (Individual and Group)
Therapy (Individual, Couple, Group) Explore your past and develop insight and a present understanding of how past experiences and old attitudes interfere with making the changes you want. With the professional care of one of our experienced therapists, develop the courage to tolerate anxiety and discomfort as you make meaningful changes in your life.
Communication Sessions (Individual, Couple, Family) Develop your listening abilities, awareness and appreciation of the feelings of another, and conscious and meaningful dialogue with those with whom you want to connect. Take responsibility for your part in the breakdown of communication. Change communications that lead to arguments, anger, hurt feelings, withdrawal and depression. Develop compassion and respect, and enrich your relationships.
Parent Sessions (Individual and Group) Develop an understanding of your child at each stage of development. Listen for your child’s feelings underneath her/his behaviors. Understand how your childhood experiences with your parents may affect or interfere with your relationship with your child. Share with a trained professional in individual sessions or share with other parents and support and encourage others.
