Self-esteem grows with consistent support and love.
Wellfam is a new model in care – marrying the best of traditional and innovative approaches. Unlike some online counseling options that are directory services or technology platforms, Wellfam is a licensed psychology practice focusing on the needs of kids, teens and their families. Our patients benefit from consistent, high quality, data-informed care in an easy to connect format.
The Five Tenets of the Wellfam experience are:
Our organization model uses a multidisciplinary approach to behavioral healthcare. Our patients each have a team consisting of a patient liaison, therapist and clinical director to ensure consistent quality care and a stress-free experience.
Our Patient Liaisons make things easier for you to find and schedule with your best-match therapist. Patient Liaisons make the onboarding process run smoothly and communicate with you in your preferred format whether Text, Email, Voice, or LiveChat. Liaisons also help with billing questions and solicit patient feedback to ensure continuous satisfaction and improvement.
Your treatment team consists of a compassionate, fully licensed therapist and data-focused clinical director. Your best-match therapist meets with your child to help him or her find practical strategies to help improve daily life.
Every Wellfam therapist is a fully licensed mental health professional with a Master’s or Doctorate degree. Our therapists also have completed an additional level of training through Wellfam and regularly collaborate with the practice via Clinician Connect to access specialized knowledge for the overall benefit of the patient.
A PsyD clinical director reviews case files and data to ensure the most effective treatment plan is in place. All diagnoses, treatment plans, and individual therapy notes have at least two sets of eyes on them to ensure quality care is being met. The Wellfam team makes sure every family gets what they need to thrive.
While there is no one-size fits all strategy for kids, teens and families, Wellfam incorporates the scientifically proven evidence-based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Family Systems Therapy over the course of a treatment cycle.
CBT focuses on the cognitive processes that produce feelings and subsequent actions. Our therapists support change in a patient’s behavior and outlook by helping them achieve a deeper understanding of the underlying thoughts, images, beliefs, and attitudes that contribute to behavior. CBT is focused on the ‘here and now’ and helps identify and reframe negative thoughts in real time to yield more positive reactions. Clients find confidence and empowerment in realizing that their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are not uncontrollable, but easily manageable.
Alongside CBT, our therapists employ family systems therapy to strengthen a patient’s relationship with their family. Family Systems Therapy emphasizes the idea of the family as an emotional unit and can help an adolescent child become more aware of the way their own and other’s behaviors affects the well-being of the family unit as whole. We believe that as long as your family relationships stay strong, your mental health stays strong.
It is important to us that you see progress towards your goals and that we can monitor the effectiveness of our treatment plan for you. As part of the initial intake process, we use standardized baseline measures, and during treatment, we monitor a set of individualized, objective measures and outcomes measures. Progress is regularly measured to ensure continued benefit and justify ongoing care.
Our specific measures include:
All of this allows us to achieve the best outcomes for the lowest cost thus maximizing value for patients.
