Adult Psychology Services
Adult Psychology Services at Spectrum Wellness in Gilbert & Mesa, AZ
Adults living in today’s modern world face a wide variety of challenges at each life stage. Adult psychology services at Spectrum Wellness focus on identifying specific challenges that are interfering with relationships or quality of life and then addressing those conditions through proven psychotherapeutic methods.
What does adult psychology include?
Adult psychologists provide psychotherapeutic services to help individuals successfully cope with emotional, mental, social, and behavioral challenges faced throughout their adult years. While some adults may have seen a child psychologist when they were younger, others face new challenges in adulthood that cause them to seek the help of a mental health professional for the first time.
Our mental health professionals follow this approach for providing professional psychological services to adults:
A complete evaluation by our adult psychologists helps to identify psychological, behavioral, social, emotional, and cognitive challenges that are interfering with everyday living and overall quality of life.
Once the challenge has been identified and understood, an appropriate treatment plan is created. Types of adult psychology interventions include evidence-based approaches, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Our adult psychologists encourage clients to take an active role in their treatment by learning to identify potential stressors and triggers and how to mitigate or prevent them.
Ideally, our mental health professionals can consult with a client’s other healthcare providers to develop and implement a holistic treatment plan for long-lasting positive results.
