Stephanie Moser-Vonachen

Practice Administrator

l am a Dental Hygienist that loves to take care of patent's teeth. What I didn't know is how much I would love managing the office here. Amy asked me to be a part of her team, and that has been a wonderful compliment to my life. I am the person that files your insurance, makes payment arrangements, does office billing, answers the phone, and makes appointments. My goal at AMFT is to make things a smooth transaction behind the scenes, from the time you walk into the door until you walk out. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me, I would be more than happy to talk with you and answer any questions you may have.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy has both benefits and risks. Risks sometimes include experiencing uncomfortable feelings, such as sadness, guilt, anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. Psychotherapy often requires discussing unpleasant aspects of your life. However, psychotherapy has been shown to have benefits for individuals who undertake it.

Therapy often leads to a significant reduction in feelings of distress, increased satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, greater personal awareness and insight, increased skills for managing stress, and resolutions to specific problems. But, there are no guarantees about what will happen.

Psychotherapy requires a very active effort on your part. In order to be most successful, you will have to work on things that we discuss outside of sessions.

Therapists utilize a variety of approaches depending on your needs. Some of these approaches include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral
  • Solution Focused
  • Bowen
  • Psychoanalytic
  • Play Therapy
  • Filial Therapy
  • Behavior Modification
  • Structural, Strategic
  • Psychoeducational
