Individual Therapy for Adults:

At AHP, adult individual therapy typically requires a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) approach, always with a holistic and culturally informed lens.

Individual therapy sessions aim to address a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, chronic pain, and more. Using evidence-based techniques, Dr. Perry works with clients to develop personalized treatment plans that incorporate CBT, DBT, and integrative approaches to healing.

CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented therapy that focuses on identifying and changing thought patterns and behaviors that are contributing to emotional distress. DBT is similar to CBT in some ways but has a focus on helps clients develop coping skills, improve emotional regulation, and build stronger relationships with a foundation in mindfulness and personal values.

At AHP, Dr. Perry takes a holistic approach to therapy, understanding that emotional well-being is deeply interconnected with physical, spiritual, and social health. Dr. Perry works with clients to identify factors that are contributing to emotional distress and she helps them develop strategies to address these areas in a holistic and sustainable way.

Whether you are struggling with a specific issue or simply looking to improve your overall emotional well-being, our CBT and DBT therapy modalities can help. 

Child/Adolescent Therapy: 

In the child, adolescent and caregiver therapy program, Dr. Perry uses  both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) modalities with a focus on the whole system.

Youth and their families often face complex challenges that require a comprehensive approach to treatment. In therapy, Dr. Perry aims to address the specific presenting issues but also considers the individual’s overall emotional, physical, spiritual, and social well-being to ensure long-term success. 

Additionally, Dr. Perry believes that family dynamics and relationships play a crucial role in child development and mental health. The whole systems approach considers the entire family unit. Dr. Perry will work with both the adolescent and their family members to develop strategies that promote healthy communication, boundaries, and relationships. In some cases, an adolescent (13+) may attend therapy individually without participating in the caregiver component.

CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented therapy that focuses on identifying and changing thought patterns and behaviors that are contributing to emotional distress. DBT is similar to CBT in some ways but has a focus on helps clients develop coping skills, improve emotional regulation, and build stronger relationships with a foundation in mindfulness and personal values.

Parent Management Training (PMT) is an evidence-based approach to problem adolescent behavior. Caregivers interested in learning how to change family dynamics may participate in PMT which can be conducted in less than 10 sessions.

If your child or adolescent is struggling with social, academic, and/or emotional issues, let’s schedule an initial intake visit to see if this form of therapy would be a good fit.

Group Skills Training:

In the AHP group skills training program, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) modalities are used to reduce anxiety and depression, teach interpersonal skills and effective mindfulness techniques, and more.

Group sessions aim to provide a supportive and collaborative environment for individuals to learn and practice CBT and DBT skills with others who are going through similar challenges. Group members work collaboratively to identify negative thought patterns and behaviors that are contributing to emotional distress and learn new strategies for coping and emotional regulation.

Our group therapy program incorporates both CBT and DBT skills-based therapy, giving group members a comprehensive set of tools to manage their emotions, improve their communication skills, and build healthy relationships. Group therapy provides a unique opportunity to learn from and support others who are facing similar challenges, while also providing a sense of community and connection.

Couples & Family Therapy:

Welcome to AHP’s couples and family therapy program, where we offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with a focus on the whole system.

We understand that couples and families often face complex challenges that require a comprehensive approach to treatment. That’s why we take a whole family approach to therapy, addressing not just the specific issue but also considering the family’s overall emotional, physical, and social well-being.

Our couples and family therapy program incorporates both CBT and EFT therapy modalities, giving partners and family members a comprehensive set of tools to manage their emotions, improve their communication skills, and build healthy relationships. Dr. Perry works with the entire family unit to help them identify and address patterns of negative communication, behavior, and emotions. She is trained to work with the entire developmental lifespan, from 0-100+ years of age.

Through our CBT and EFT focused family therapy program, families can learn how to communicate more effectively, understand each other’s emotions and needs, and build stronger and more supportive relationships. Dr. Perry believes that when the family unit is strong, each individual member is better equipped to manage life’s challenges.

If your family is struggling with communication, conflict, or other issues such as erosion of trust or substance use concerns, our CBT and EFT focused couples and family therapy program can provide the support and guidance you need to improve your family’s overall emotional well-being. 

Diagnostic Assessment:

Diagnostic assessment services involve the use of various tests and evaluations to determine an individual’s cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. This may be appropriate if you are experiencing difficulties in your daily lives or if you are seeking clarification about mental health status.

The assessment process typically begins with a comprehensive interview, during which Dr. Perry gathers information about the history, symptoms, and concerns. This information is used to develop a personalized assessment plan, which may involve the use of standardized psychological tests, behavioral observations, and interviews with significant individuals in your life (with consent). Following the assessment, the psychologist provides a comprehensive summary of findings, diagnoses (if appropriate), and recommendations for treatment.

Diagnostic assessment services by a licensed psychologist provide a thorough and objective evaluation of an individual’s cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning, which can be used to inform treatment planning and improve overall quality of life.

Virtual Therapy:

At this time, AHP is offering both in-person and virtual evidence-based therapy and assessment services. Virtual therapy sessions are approved by the provider based on factors such as client age, presenting issues, and access to care based on location.
