MindFit is a one of a kind place for young people who share a common love for gaming and desire to make new friends and practice social and other skills in a safe, welcoming, community environment.  It also provides an opportunity for clinicians who are trained on new and growing approaches to mental health therapy that include the use of technology to share the resources needed to effectively do their work. Specifically, Dr. Rice, Julie Cenzi, and Danielle Ingrassio have developed a model for providing effective mental health counseling services to young people interested in technology and its many benefits to mental health. 

Individual Psychotherapy

Strength-based approaches to therapy for young people with various mental health issues related to anxiety, OCD, and ASD are provided.  Individual psychotherapy is provided from an integrated perspective using approaches influenced primarily by cognitive behavioral and narrative therapies, as well as principles of applied behavior analysis.  Lower-cost options with graduate level interns in mental health counseling are also available.

MindFit 101, Gamer Groups and Club

 Gamer Groups utilize videogames and videogame metaphors to help group members better examine themselves, where they are going in life, and how they want to get there. MindFit offers these groups for multiple age groups.

For those who have already been through Gamer Group, Gamer Club offers a less structured way for participants to stay connected to MindFit and the relationships they made in group.

OCD Consultations

What?

Five session consultation to assess obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), teach skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), teach skills in psychophysiological self-regulation (PSR), construct exposure and response prevention (ERP) plan, and provide written recommendations to primary therapist or other health care provider for continued progress.

 

For Who?

Children and adolescents who demonstrate repetitive behaviors that have been resistant to 1st line treatment approaches. OCD consultations are intended to provide an enhanced level of care when a person’s repetitive behavior is especially complex and difficult to support by the primary therapist alone.

 

How Much?

$750 for 5 X 1 (hour) session consultation with written recommendations and collateral contacts. Payment is made after 1st session if the client wants to proceed with the full consultation. There is no cost for the first session.
