What Makes Us Different?
Three things make us extra-ordinary as compared to most other practices. They
are our commitment to a group model, our level of training, and our treatment
Wilmes-Reitz Psychological is a group practice. As such, we can offer many
benefits a “solo” practitioner cannot. First, we have more ability to match the
right therapist to you. With multiple therapists, we will
probably have someone who is available at times convenient to you and we will
probably have someone who is well versed with your particular issues. In
addition, we have the capacity to treat multiple family members in-house. We
have child therapists and couple therapists as well as individual therapists. By
having the “whole system” in house, we can do a better job at coordinating the
family treatment. Another benefit has to do with regular “case consult”
meetings. While we don’t share identifying or personal information, each
therapist has the resource of the whole group when confronted with unique
problems or need for resource information.
As to level of training, we have mostly doctoral-level therapists in our group. We
chose this policy so that we could offer only the highest level of treatment.
After all, to work with someone’s psyche and to effect
their lives is a great responsibility.
Our treatment philosophy centers around respect for our patients and their
needs. We have a commitment to give careful and conscientious treatment, this is
not just a money mill. In addition, we respect our patient’s individuality,
tailoring the treatment to who they are, not to third party influences. We are
also aware that a lack of respect and sensitivity is part of what creates
psychological damage and by bringing these qualities to the therapy relationship
healing can take place. In this way we strive to help the common good, one
person at a time.
