SERVICES

With each individual, couple or family, Live Well Psychology Center professionals customize the approach based on the identified problem, individual needs and what science has shown to have the best clinical results.  We collaborate with medical doctors and other professionals where appropriate, but only with the client(s) written consent.  

INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR ADULTS

Live Well Psychology Center offers expertise in proper diagnosis and treatment for an array of emotional, life and and behavioral issues.  With warmth and with a respect for the latest psychology research and literature, we tailor our approach to each client’s individual needs and goals. 

PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR CHILDREN & TEENAGERS

Live Well Psychology Center requires and values family participation for children under 18.  The first session must include at least one parent.  The second session is a family session (the household).  The third session will be determined based on findings in the first two sessions and may involve the child or teenager coming in individually.  

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Skills Group for Teens

This group is for teens ages 14-17 who have a difficult time regulating emotions and behavior, such as those struggling with impulse control, interpersonal relationships and self-image.  The goal is to help these teens change behavioral, emotional, thinking, and interpersonal patterns so they can feel more confident and in control of their life.  The next group begins the first Thursday of October.

If you are interested in learning more about this group and/or joining this group, please contact Brittany Wool, LPC at Office: 973-726-5200  Cell:  973-600-1532 or Email: boverland314@gmail.com.

 

PSYCHOTHERAPY FOR FAMILIES

& COUPLES

At times it is wise to seek and invest in a professional to help us work toward greater emotional connectedness, understanding and harmony as a family or couple.   Family systems psychology, attachment / emotional focused theories and cognitive behavioral therapy are utilized for couples and families.

 

BRIEF FAMILY DIAGNOSIS

Dr. Miller offers a two session “Family Health” evaluation which concludes with a diagnosis and recommended next steps for changes for families who would like professional advice on how to move on their own toward greater harmony and tranquility without participating in extended psychotherapy.  

 

WEEKEND INTENSIVE IMMERSION 

FOR HIGH CONFLICT FAMILIES 

Research has shown that great damage from divorce comes from parental conflict.

Research has also shown that it’s valuable for a child’s health to maintain a healthy relationship with both parents after divorce.   When children have distorted views or “black and white” views of one parent, it is valuable to help that child to create a more reality based viewpoint.

 

Dr. Miller offers a weekend intensive for families with children who are at risk of becoming “alienated.”  This program is for separated or divorced families in which the child(ren) are refusing or resisting spending time with one of the parents.

 

The program involves an entire weekend in which all members of the family (all members of both households) spend the weekend away with Dr. Miller and a supporting psychotherapist.   The family spends the weekend in psychotherapy (child only, parent only, entire family) and in recreational activities designed to build positive associations and healing.  

 

The weekend involves a careful intake process as well as an after-care process to work toward successful long term relationships between the children and both parents. 

 

This is innovative approach seeks to break repeated negative cycles of conflict involving parents and children.  These negative cycles also often involve frequent litigation.
