Services & Approach

Services

Silicon Valley Therapy ServicesSilicon Valley Therapy offer four core services:

  1. Individual, couples, and family psychotherapy and coaching.
  2. Group psychotherapy and coaching to leverage the social component of growth and healing.
  3. Talks to inspire and educate the community.
  4. Workshops to jump start your health and wellness.

Approach

At Silicon Valley Therapy we recognize that humans are complex and change is hard.  As a result, our approach to psychotherapy and coaching utilizes a four-fold model as shown in the accompanying diagram.  We assess functioning in all of these domains right away. This helps us create specific goals and target the parts of your life that need the most attention.

Psycho-spiritual health

Emotions swim in the psyche and they must be properly understood to live well.  Psychological health is essential for a well-lived life. If you have a spiritual path it is important that it is in sync and working well with your psychological health.

From anxiety to depression, Asperger’s to ADHD, trauma to addiction, and parenting to job burnout, healing begins with clarity and acceptance of what is present now. The safe structured therapeutic or coaching space at Silicon Valley Therapy is the ideal place to begin your journey of growth and healing.

Brain & Body Health

Is there an underlying brain or body issue that is impeding your optimal health?  The four pillars of health are useful to assess within this domain: nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management.

Optimal Well-being

On a scale of -3 to positive 3 how would you rate your level of well-being? Traditional psychology’s goal was to help people be quote Les Miserable. Quote this would be a move from -3 to -1 on the well-being scale. Coaches at Silicon Valley Therapy use theories and techniques from positive psychology, a branch of psychology that is interested in moving people from 0 to 3 on the well-being scale. Let Silicon Valley Therapy providers help you optimize and maximize your well-being.

Relational Health 

Dysfunctional relationships and loneliness are epidemics in our culture. Healthy communication is the Bedrock of prosocial relationships. Silicon Valley Therapy providers are experts in communication and navigating wounded relationships.

Therapeutic Supervised Visitation

Written By SVT Team

What is Therapeutic Supervised Visitation?

Therapeutic supervised visitation (TSV) is a type of visitation that takes place in either the home or at a neutral location. This form of intervention is used to address barriers, promote safety, permanency, and improve the well-being for children. This approach has been used for many years to help children and families who have experienced traumatic events, such as domestic violence and/or child abuse.

Who Therapeutic Supervised Visitation is for?

TSV is designed to help parents understand how their behavior affects their children and other family members. This method offers parents the opportunity to learn more about themselves, their children, ways to improve their communication skills and parenting practices. Therapeutic Supervised Visitation allows parents to spend time with their children in a safe and controlled environment.  

Therapeutic supervision can be done in one-on-one sessions or family sessions with both the parents and their children present. In these sessions, the therapist works with all parties involved to help them learn how to communicate better with each other and resolve their differences peacefully. This process takes time and patience, but it can be very beneficial in helping everyone involved to better understand what caused the issues in the first place and how to avoid them in the future.

Why Therapeutic Supervised Visitation is Important?

 Therapeutic supervision is especially helpful when there are concerns about:

  • A child's safety
  • An ongoing conflict between parents
  • A parent's inability to manage their own stress and emotions
  • A parent's mental health issues that could impact the child 

Direct observation of parenting practices is essential to improve family relationships. Specific issues that prevent bonding and attachment with children are typically addressed during supervised visitation as well. TSV enables a parent to visit their children in a safe and appropriate environment with supervision made by a qualified mental health professional.

The therapist may invite the parent to meet separately from their children to provide ideas for a successful visit or education on building their parent-child relationship. The utmost priority of Therapeutic Supervision Visitation is the safety and care of the children. This type of supervision is to ensure that the children feel comfortable and do not experience any distress during their visit.

A number of studies have shown that Therapeutic Supervised Visitation can be an effective tool for reducing conflict between parents and provide the child with a stable environment. TSV also brings an opportunity for parents to practice positive behaviors with their children.

By meeting with a professional regularly you will have the opportunity to talk about your progress and any issues that arise within your family unit. You will also benefit from guidance regarding how to best manage specific situations that may arise within your family.

How to Get Therapeutic Supervised Visitation

Therapeutic supervised visitation is commonly ordered through a legal process and there may be abuse or parental conflict involved in the process. Whenever there is an indication of trauma, abuse, or excessive conflict this type of visitation can be warranted and effective. Upon completion of Therapeutic Supervised Visitation, a report can be written with an assessment and next steps.

Here is a Self-Help Guide to Supervised Visitation from the Judicial Brand of California. 

If you are outside of the state of California we advice you look into state's government website for details on what is required for Supervised Visitation.
