Counseling Services

Behavioral Health Services
S.E.E.K. Arizona counseling services focus on improving the quality of life for the person receiving services. We strive to improve communication skills, identify and manage emotions and build self-esteem. We begin the process by building rapport and meeting the person receiving service where they are.

Counseling methods are tailored to each person for we believe that the diagnosis does not define the person. We value communication and team involvement. We strive to follow the 12 principles of the DHS & AHCCCS “Arizona Vision” for providing services.

The road to change begins with …

An intake where we gather information and complete the required paperwork Our counselor meets the family and the person served (if a minor) to complete an assessment that includes some history of the family. Then rapport building and basic goal setting follows.

Developing a transition plan is part of the initiation of services. The transition plan is a specific part of the treatment plan that allows the person receiving counseling to be and feel successful (transition plan = discharge planning and is required by most funding sources).

During each session the counselor listens, redirects, interacts, encourages, provides positive feedback, educates, engages, and assists the person to reach a deeper quality of life. Throughout S.E.E.K. Arizona you will discover that we are service and support from referral to discharge. We provide these services for Mercy Maricopa Integrated Care (RHBA) health insurance or private pay clients.
