Treatment Information

 
 

Melinda Richter and Jerry Skogmo provide psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, solution focused therapy,
addictions counseling, couple and family therapy, individual therapy,
goal-oriented counseling, school and work consultations, parenting
skills training, sports psychology counseling and emergency/critical incidence counseling, and holographic memory resolution for treating trauma.

 
 
   

Adults: An individualized treatment plan is formulated following an initial comprehensive assessment. A treatment approach that considers the communication style, individual strengths and weaknesses and the capacity for insight for each client is designed and may range from brief, solution focused counseling to longer term insight-oriented therapy.

Children and Adolescents: Ages 6 and up, are seen individually, with their parents or in a group with children who have similar problems. We have expertise in treating a variety of disorders, including but not limited to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity (ADHD) Asperger's Disorder, depression and anxiety disorders.

Couples Counseling: Maladaptive communication patterns, the one issue that confronts almost all couples who experience relationship difficulty, is thoroughly examined and new, healthier ways of behaving and interacting are emphasized. Also, for those couples experiencing sexual problems, treatment focuses on techniques to overcome these conditions.

Parenting Skills: Being a parent in today's society can be daunting and very difficult. The explosion of multimedia forms, relaxed community standards, the proliferation of drugs and increased peer pressure add to potential problem areas in family life. We examine communication styles, review disciplinary methods, and help sort out areas of conflict. Our approach considers "natural consequences" for unacceptable behaviors and stresses individual and parental responsibility. Our counseling techniques are designed to help parents reduce or eliminate sibling and family conflicts.

 
 
   

Fees: Fees are very competitive as compared to practices in the metro Chicago area. A limited number of clients may be eligible for a modified fee scale according to income. We are on a number of managed care health insurance panels that cover the cost of therapy.
