Therapy and Counseling
Our therapy staff is experienced in treating a broad scope of emotional issues and mental health disorders using a wide variety of individualized treatment approaches. Therapists help each of their clients assess, understand, and work toward resolution of their concerns.

Services are available in individual, group, couple, and family formats.
    Specialty areas include:
  • Trauma Informed Care
  • Emotional Regulation Therapy (Dialectical Behavior Therapy-DBT)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Therapy Services
  • Anger Management

Outpatient Psychiatry
Our Psychiatry staff conducts comprehensive mental health assessments, develops treatment plans, and provides medication management services. Psychiatry providers treat conditions such as anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, attention-deficit disorder, and schizophrenia. 
CFR offers psychiatry services both in-person and through state-of-the-art communication technologies that allow a Psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner located at a remote site to provide care to you at a local CFR office. This type of service is often referred to as Telehealth, Telemedicine, or Telepsychiatry; secure equipment allows you and your provider to see and hear each other and communicate in real time. A staff member is available at all times to manage the Telehealth equipment, as well as ensure safety and security. These services do not require any special scheduling or referral process, and CFR staff are available to help you learn more about Telehealth services during our regular office hours. 
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
An EAP is designed by an employer to provide a wellness benefit for employees. It enables employees to obtain professional counseling help for personal or emotional problems. Such programs give employees easy, no-cost access to confidential professional assessment, brief counseling, and referral services. 

Education and Prevention Services
As a behavioral health care provider, we work to increase community awareness about mental health and available preventative measures and treatments. We also work to reduce the stigma around seeking help for mental health concerns.
