“Compassionate Psychotherapy for When the World Spins Out of Control”
At RISE & Shine we offer a variety of OUTPATIENT THERAPEUTIC SERVICES that are tailored to meet the needs of the individuals, couples, families, and groups with whom we work. Our staff understands and values the importance of ensuring a safe and healthy environment for you to rely on — especially in times when it might be difficult to know where we are safe.
Making the choice to work on yourself is often a difficult, but more than often, the most rewarding investment you will ever make. Because of this, we take a unique, collaborative approach to helping our clients heal, recover, and learn from their past; empowering them to make healthy changes, and learn to cope in the present. This uniquely personal approach can make it easier for our clients to personally grow, and create a brighter future.
A Journey of Self-Discovery
Our clients are encouraged to discover and embrace who they are, while learning to make choices that will support their desire to create the future they have hoped for.
Our clinical staff has extensive and specialized training for helping clients deal with trauma and abuse-related issues, PTSD, dissociative disorders, and grief recovery. At RISE & Shine, we offer counseling and therapeutic services to help individuals and families — both traditional and non-traditional families — heal and grow stronger. Our goal is to get to the root of the issue and develop a therapeutic plan of action to address the problem and work toward a solution. In some cases, that might mean one-on-one counseling. In others, that might mean a group dynamic, in which a client and his or her family are actively involved in the therapy regimen. In still others, it could involve intensive day programs, beachside therapy, or other customized approaches, designed to address a more acute behavioral or psychiatric need. No matter what approach or treatment regimen is undertaken, our friendly, experienced and compassionate team will be there to support each of our clients with the ultimate goal being a return to a healthy and more meaningful life.
We are proud to say that we have had clients from around the country, and around the world travel to access our specialized services, and we do our best to help clients who have to travel make arrangements that meet their needs.
A Holistic Approach to Healing Trauma
While we specialize in our Holistic Trauma Program which includes stabilizing, coping, healing, and recovery; it is important to acknowledge the importance of how trauma impacts the entire family, and not just the “identified client”, making it equally important to provide additional or supportive services for you and your entire support system. At RISE & Shine, our team takes a collaborative approach — working as a combined “support community” to ensure your needs as a whole person are being met, and often with external additional support to ensure those needs are fully and confidentially satisfied.
Life can get tough sometimes. But for men and women who are struggling with mental illness, addiction, trauma and stress, life can go from challenging to overwhelming. RISE & Shine can help through our comprehensive range of adult therapeutic services. We provide a wide array of community-based mental health services and programs to help adults create healthier, safer, more productive, sober, and successful lives.
Our staff provides specialized services for couples, relationships, and/or family conflict issues, helping each affected person to access both individual services, as well as joint services. We do this by having a Primary Therapist work with each member individually to help them become more self-aware, better understanding their role and how a traumatic event, or relationship conflict impacts their overall wellness.
An important part of any type of healing is learning to LIVE again and really enjoy our lives. While overcoming the struggles and pain we have experienced, it is imperative that we learn or relearn how to LIVE our lives.
After being in “therapy” or “recovery” then what? That is not how the story ends. In order to live “happily ever after”, we work with our you to help create the life that you want to be living and actually ENJOY living.
Healing & Therapy in the Perfect Setting
We believe it’s essential to promote and create a safe space for healing both inside and outside of our office. The photos in the slideshow below include just a few of the places we’re able to povide a safe, confidential and healing environment for your personalized treatment program. These include the inside of all three suites at RISE & Shine Integrated Therapeutic Services, as well as the incredible view, the building, and outdoor spaces we have used for experiential sessions at our clients’ requests. We’re not confined to the office either, and often “take your treatment on the road” to non-traditional spaces, including George English Park (across the street), and the adjacent beach, a short distance down the road, which can also be used for sessions when therapeutically beneficial.
