Adults and Couples
From past trauma, relationships and parenting problems to career and work challenges, financial stress and aging, FSA provides a range of services to help during a crisis or provide long-term support for life transitions.
Depression and Anxiety
Life is full of stressors and challenges that sometimes feel overwhelming and make daily life difficult or even impossible. FSA has trained professionals who facilitate one-on-one and group therapies for depression and anxiety whether it’s caused by a family history of depression, childhood trauma, or life events. Whatever the cause, and however hopeless life may seem, there is help and hope. FSA provides a range of therapies tailored to individual needs and circumstances for depression; phobias and anxiety including social anxiety, agoraphobia or generalized anxiety; treatment for adult ADHD and coordinated treatment for bipolar disorder, including medication evaluation.
Stress and Trauma
Stress comes at us from many directions, sometimes several directions at once: marriage, parenting, job, finances, recent trauma or trauma from childhood that remains unresolved. Whether overcoming the stressful obstacles of daily life, recent traumatic events or childhood trauma, FSA provides a full scope of effective therapies, including the County’s most comprehensive trauma treatment services, and can provide group or individual help for the treatment of trauma or a resulting addiction or behavioral disorder.
Addiction Recovery and Behavioral Disorders
Addiction recovery is a complicated journey that requires support to be successful, whether it’s addiction to drugs or alcohol, gambling, shopping, food or cutting – any addiction or disorder that makes living a productive life impossible. FSA therapists identify individual challenges and develop a therapeutic plan to support the greatest chance of living free of addiction. The agency follows a harm reduction model, which recognizes that relapse may occur during the treatment and recovery process. The vine Detox Center, through Buckelew Programs, provides a non-medical detox program where adults under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol can safely withdraw in a supportive environment
Grief and Loss
Grief can become a consuming aftermath of loss. In the wake of a loved one’s death, FSA has grief counseling services available with trained counselors to help through the most difficult part of grief’s journey. Grief can also result from divorce, death of a pet, loss of a job, or the loss of any essential part of life. FSA provides experienced support and assistance at the most critical time.
Our sexual identity is one of the most essential aspects of who we are as individuals and how we see ourselves as someone’s partner, child, sibling, mother, father, co-worker and friend. Often, personal acceptance is challenged by discrimination. FSA can provide therapeutic support for anyone experiencing distress related to discrimination and stigma, questions about gender or sexual identity, or issues around self esteem and healthy relationships.
FSA therapists provide a wide range of strategies to help couples learn better communication, solve minor challenges or overcome a relationship crisis. FSA also offers Parenting Apart (see sidebar) for divorced or separated couples.
