Center for Wellness and Recovery
Mountain View Hospital’s Center for Wellness and Recovery offers empirically supported assessment and treatment to adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families across a broad range of concerns. Our mission is getting you back to what you love through services that not only address the symptoms but the root cause of whatever your concerns may be. We are committed to partnering with you in your journey towards wellness and recovery by providing you with the knowledge, skills, and resources to help you to re-establish a life that is rewarding and full of purpose.
In addition to providing traditional services for those with primary psychological concerns, we provide specialized services to patients with chronic medical conditions that have led to diminished functioning beyond what can be addressed through medical intervention alone. We work closely with medical providers to offer these specialized services to meet the specific needs of their patient population.
We specialize in offering comprehensive, empirically supported, best-practice, and innovative services for adults, adolescents, and children across the full spectrum of psychological concerns.
- Psychological assessment is an empirically based statistical analysis of symptom patterns that can provide clear direction in establishing the causes of dysfunction and recommendations for recovery. This service can only be provided by a doctoral level psychologist and is part of any comprehensive approach to addressing psychological concerns. Psychological assessment is particularly useful when symptom presentation is complicated, if previous treatment has been unsuccessful, and/or if there are potential cognitive factors involved. Additionally, we provide specialized psychological assessments to patients in medical settings to assist in obtaining medically necessary interventions, establishing baseline functioning in cases where their condition may impact mental status, as well as to determine any psychological barriers to successful treatment.
Treatment planning by multidisciplinary team
- Combining your input with the expertise of a medical provider, clinical psychologist, and trained psychotherapist, we create a customized wellness and recovery plan.
Individual and systems based psychotherapy
- Science has clearly established the benefit of empirically supported psychotherapy for quickening recovery and maintaining wellness. All psychotherapy provided strictly complies with established best practices. Our providers are all graduate level, licensed psychotherapists with a demonstrated history of successful practice prior to joining the center. Psychotherapy is provided for individuals, couples, and families as indicated via initial assessment to support optimal recovery.
Psychoeducational group skills training
- Research has consistently shown that many skills necessary for wellness and recovery are best taught in a group format where not only the facilitator, but also group members, can share their knowledge and experiences to assist one another. All psychoeducational groups follow empirically supported guidelines and are designed to enhance individual work being done in psychotherapy.
Psychiatric medication management
- Symptom relief provided through psychotropic medications is helpful for many in regaining their baseline, as well as assisting them in fully benefiting from individual and group work. Our licensed and experienced medical providers work as a team with our psychologist and psychotherapists to provide evidence-based comprehensive treatment.
