What kinds of problems do you help people with the most?
Catalyst aims to serve the most pressing clinical needs of the communities in which we operate. As a result, our clinical focus has adjusted dynamically over time whenever the needs of our local communities have changed. According to claims data, the top ten most frequently treated conditions at Catalyst in the past 3 years have been:
1. Anxiety Disorders 2. Mood Disorders (Depressive and Bipolar Disorders) 3. Trauma and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder 4. Compulsive Disorders (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Compulsive Behavior) 5. Chemical Dependency 6. Borderline Personality Disorder 7. Eating Disorders 8. Autism Spectrum Disorders 9. Attention Deficit Disorders 10. Gender Identity Disorder
This is by no means an exhuastive list of the types of problems that we help people with, but it should give you an idea of some conditions that the majority of of providers are likely to be familiar with. A list of individual clinician specialities can be found on the therapists page, by clicking "View Specialties and Experience."
What kinds of people do you work with?
We now have clinicians specializing in clients of all ages: children ages 5-12, adolescents, young adults, older adults, and seniors. Demographic and cultural specialties vary somewhat from provider to provider, but all of our providers value a diversity of beliefs, faith, and cultural traditions. All of our providers are also open and affirming friends of the LGBTcommunity.
How frequently do you meet with people, and for how long?
All of the services provided by Catalyst Mental Health are delivered at the outpatient level of service intensity, which means that sessions typically last approximately 50 minutes and occur once a week. However, session duration and frequency may vary depending on client needs, with a maximum service level intensity of approximately three hours per week.
Do you provide medication management services?
No, we do not have any medication prescribers on staff at the moment. However, we recognize that most research suggests that clients achieve the best treatment outcomes when receiving a combination of talk therapy and medication management, so we are strong supporters of those who would like for medication to be a part of their treatment process. To accomodate these needs, we have developed a referral network of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and primary care physicians with whom we feel confident coordinating care.
Do you provide any inpatient or residential services?
No, while many people assume that we must have an inpatient or residential facility, we in fact only provide outpatient services. If you are interested in inpatient or residential services, we have strong referral relationships with several providers in the area who provide inpatient, residential, partial-hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and day treatment services.
Do you offer any discounted or reduced rate services?
Yes! We offer services at a reduced rate of $40 through our masters-level graduate internship program. Masters-level graduate interns are working toward completing the practice requirements for their master's degree, and their work is supervised by one of the other independently licensed clinicians in our group. Some regular therapists also dedicate a limited portion of their caseload to clients struggling with financial harships, and may be willing upon request to offer reduced rates to those in need.
