At Mid Island Psychology Associates, we take a comprehensive and thorough approach to treatment, meaning that each treatment plan is tailored to each clients’ specific needs. For some individuals, their psychological distress may be significantly impacting different aspects of their lives, requiring a more intensive treatment program. At Mid Island Psychology Associates, clientsare able to be seen up to 20 hours a week if necessary, with the goal of reducing treatment once functioning increases. Typically clients receiving this level of care are seen for at least 1-2 months before treatment is reduced. Even when treatment is reduced, it still may be suggested that a client come in for sessions 2-3 times per week, to address relapse in symptoms and support when returning to life; be it school, work, or social situations. On the other end of the spectrum, some clients may not need this intensive level of treatment and may benefit from weekly or biweekly appointments. All recommendations for treatment will be discussed at the end of the consultation session, at which time recommendations for frequency will be determined. Once treatment is complete, we also offer booster sessions, aimed at addressing difficult situations that arise and provide a refresher of skills and coping strategies. Typically booster sessions last for 1-2 sessions and are used to help the client cope effectively and quickly without the need for continuous treatment.
We also offer in-home sessions for those whose conditions prohibit them from getting to the office, as well as for those whose target behaviors are predominantly in the home.
For those coming for intensive treatment, we are conveniently located near major highways, public transportation, as well as excellent lodging and dining. We are a 40-minute train ride from Manhattan.
