Respecting the Pioneers – Building upon their Foundation

The field of mental health originated from the work of a handful of first generation personality theorists. Sigmund Freud’s work is among the most famous, laying the groundwork for those who were influenced by him and who built upon his theories. Just over 100 years old, the profession of mental health is, by scientific standards, in its infancy.

At Alternatives, we believe that many theorists and therapeutic perspectives contain useful components. Rather than over-identifying with one theory which would be very limiting, we draw from those that work best with our client population. Among our favorites are Attachment Theory, Object Relations Theory, Positive Psychology, Ego- Psychology, Family Systems, Gestalt, Feminist Therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy.

Drawing from our wealth of clinical theory, our therapists customize each treatment plan to meet the unique needs of the client for whom it is created.
