New Moon Wellness clinicians utilize an integrative approach in treating clients and are not limited to the confines of traditional therapeutic practice. Therapy is the pillar of New Moon Wellness’ services and can be provided in the field, including home visits, work sites and through teletherapy.

THERAPY

Therapy is a joint process between a therapist and the client(s) that can help people overcome obstacles that can affect their wellbeing. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire positive change and to improve quality of life. People may seek therapy for help with issues that are hard to face alone. 

Individual

People in therapy can learn how to increase positive feelings and improve self-esteem. They can also develop skills that can help them make healthy decisions in difficult situations. Many people enjoy the therapeutic process of becoming more self-aware— often times, continuing therapy throughout their life for personal growth.

Couple

Our therapists are trained to help you establish a vision of how you want your relationship to be and then to help you make the necessary changes to achieve that vision. When negotiating changes in your relationship becomes too challenging to manage on your own, couple’s therapy with a trained professional can often be what’s needed. Whether you want to enhance your relationship, resolve specific issues, improve trust and communication, or prevent divorce, our couple’s therapists can provide your partner and you with support, understanding and strength to improve your relationship. Our clinicians work closely with couples to identify areas of difficulty and assist them in deciding what changes are needed. During couple’s therapy sessions, we help partners develop and practice more productive problem-solving and communication skills. We also assist them in safely exploring their difficulties together, building on the relationship’s strengths and working through areas of anger and resentment, in order to form a healthier, happier relationship. With support and guidance, positive relationship changes and increased satisfaction in your relationship are possible.

Family

Therapists conduct multiple sessions to help families deal with important issues that may interfere with the functioning of the family and the home environment. The goal of family therapy is to help family members improve communication, solve family problems, understand and handle special family situations (for example, death, serious physical or mental illness, or child and adolescent issues), and create a better functioning home environment. For families with one member who has a serious physical or mental illness, family therapy can educate families about the illness and work out problems associated with care of the family member. For children and adolescents, family therapy most often is used when the child or adolescent has challenges with their mental health that impairs their family and social functioning. Families with members from different backgrounds, as well as same-sex couples and blended families, may also benefit from family therapy.

CARE COORDINATION

Psychiatric Hospitalizations

When people are having severe symptoms of mental illness, they sometimes need to be stabilized through inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. Our clinicians will assess and determine if hospitalization is appropriate and will coordinate the client’s hospital stay.

*Inpatient stays are covered through private insurance or private self-pay

Medication Management

Some clients achieve greater outcomes by combining talk therapy and medication. New Moon Wellness contracts with licensed psychiatrists to address medication needs. Clients in need of medication will benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach, as it will help enhance medication adherence and monitor effectiveness of treatment.

Substance Abuse Treatment

New Moon Wellness provides substance abuse assessments for all clients upon in-take. When clinically appropriate, referrals can be made to outpatient and residential treatment facilities and detoxification centers. New Moon Wellness has developed relationships with facilities in the greater Los Angeles area and will help patients and their family members understand the treatment process.

Medical Referrals

A crisis can occur that can potentially damage one’s public image as a result of an unexpected event. Crises often require that important decisions be made quickly to limit damage to the individual and/or the organization. New Moon Wellness can provide crisis management to assist in quickly resolving urgent matters as they arise.

Coaching differs from therapy or counseling. It is solution focused and addresses specific personal projects and/or business and professional goals. It helps identify potential obstacles and challenges and establishes a course of action to help the client reach a specific goal.
