JSTS Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Clinical Social Workers, and Psychologists have diverse educational and clinical backgrounds. Upon receiving your information through the “Make an Appointment” feature of our website or by phone, our New Patient Coordinator, will attempt to schedule you while taking into account the following factors:

    • Patient Preference
    • Clinician Availability 
    • Clinician Areas of Specialization
    • Appointment Day and Time Preference

Once an intake evaluation (1st appointment) is scheduled, your clinician will conduct a psychological assessment in an effort to render working diagnoses that accurately characterize your clinical picture, guiding subsequent treatment planning. Prior to the appointment’s conclusion, both the clinician and the patient can determine subjectively and collaboratively whether a goodness of fit is present. 

JSTS clinicians typically see patients at a frequency and duration that is medically necessary based on the severity of presenting issues, the goals the patient possesses, and the input of the clinician. Weekly therapy is preferred, however if a patient is struggling and desires/requires more than one session per week, your clinician will be able to accommodate. Should your clinician be unavailable, the practice guarantees that coverage will be provided by another clinician or the clinical director. The following comprises a list of many of the therapeutic modalities your clinician may be versed in providing:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
