Individual therapy for patients ages 5+
Individual therapy, also commonly referred to as therapy, counseling, or psychotherapy, creates a warm, confidential, and supportive environment where an individual meets one on one with a trained therapist. At Alliance Behavioral Psychology, we strive to focus on having a genuine and interested relationship or “alliance” with the person.
In individual therapy the person can expect to be treated with respect, understanding, and empathy. Your therapist will seek to work with you to develop a clear treatment plan within the first visit or two. You can expect to work on understanding the relationship between your thoughts, emotions, and interpersonal approaches. Our objective is to help you develop and enhance the skills needed to cope more effectively with your concerns and begin to have a more fulfilling and hopeful approach to life.
Areas of therapeutic expertise- anxiety, depression (including postpartum depression), OCD, PTSD, bipolar, grief and loss, anger management, relationship concerns, spiritual/religious concerns, pornography and sexual concerns, perfectionism, restoring inner-resilience, and developing interpersonal empowerment
All of our therapists use empirically supported therapeutic approaches (CBT, ACT, DBT, etc.).
Child Therapy Services are provided at our Spanish Fork office.
Child therapy is form of treatment where the therapist works closely with a child and caregiver(s) to improve the mental, emotional, and social health of the child.
Dr. Jason McBride, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist, and Dr. Ben Bailey, PhD, Psychology Resident, provide evidence-based treatment for children (ages 5-12) suffering from anxiety, depression, OCD, behavioral-problems, and/or attachment-issues.
Children and parents can expect to receive warm and transparent treatment. Dr. McBride and Dr. Bailey strive to teach, model, and strengthen healthy parent-child interactions.
We offer a fully equipped play-therapy room, where children are able to access fun and familiar ways to express themselves through play (sand-play, puppets, toys, costumes, etc.).
Group therapy- is a form of therapy where individuals can experience a safe place to connect, relate, learn, and change in an interpersonal environment. Groups typically have anywhere from 5-12 members, depending on the nature and purpose of the group. Group therapy can be particularly helpful when mental health concerns interfere with relationships.
Groups we currently offer:
Postpartum Group (Wednesday’s 5:30-7:00 pm)- For women who experience mental health concerns after childbirth. While nearly 80% of women experience “baby blues” within first few weeks after childbirth, around 20% of women experience a clinical level of depression, anxiety, or OCD after the first few weeks/months of childbirth. This group provides a warm and safe space where mothers can receive validation and support from others, improve coping skills, and learn more effective ways to communicate with their support systems.
20’s Process Group- For 20 to 30 year-old adults dealing with various mental, emotional, and social issues. This group offers a warm and therapeutic environment where individuals can be heard, supported, validated, and challenged in helpful ways. This modality of treatment can be particularly helpful for those who are seeking to strengthen their identity, improve interpersonal assertiveness, set better boundaries, and/or become appropriately vulnerable with peers.
