Therapy For Adults – Our Specialties

Our Alabama counseling team uses a variety of therapeutic methods in working with adults. These methods include, but are not limited to:


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a common form of talk therapy. With CBT, clients will work with their counselor to uncover negative thinking and work to view circumstances in a healthier way. CBT is used to treat a variety of mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and eating disorders.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a form of psychotherapy that helps clients heal from experiencing traumatic or disturbing experiences. EMDR is most commonly used with clients experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


Play Therapy

Play Therapy is a form of therapy where play is the primary method of communication. At Garrett Counseling in Boaz, AL, we believe play can benefit clients of all ages – even adults! Play therapy can be beneficial in treating behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. Play therapy incorporates toys, games, role-playing, and other elements in the sessions.


Sandplay Therapy (All counselors at Garrett Counseling are trained at Level Two Sandtray for working with adults and children)

Sandplay Therapy incorporates the use of sand and toy figures in the therapy sessions. The client will use the figures to create scenes in the sandtray, and the scenes and figures serve as a way for the client to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and understanding of their world. Sandtray can be especially beneficial for clients who have experienced trauma, as well as those with depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns.


Sex Therapy

Sex Therapy is a method of therapy that focuses on concerns (medical concerns, psychological concerns, etc.) that impact sexual health. The client will talk about their concerns with their counselor and work to on coping mechanisms to create a healtheir sex life. Sex therapy can involve just the client or the client and their partner. The counselor can work with the client to discuss which option is best.
