South Texas' Most Trusted Psychotherapy Services

The decision to see a therapist is a very personal one. Individuals realize that psychotherapy can involve examination of one's own conscious thoughts and feelings, your situation and the people around you. For some people, this can be very difficult at first, but the rewards are immense. Having a trained psychotherapist to work with you in this process is an instrumental asset. Psychotherapy helps people to enhance and maintain their physical and mental health, and promote honesty, intimacy and fulfillment in their lives. It helps people change negative patterns which they have lived with for a long time.

Our distinguished team of mental health professionals offer treatment for mental health and substance use concerns including depression and anxiety, trauma, OCD, ADHD, substance use disorder, and adjustment issues. We utilize many treatment modalities:

  • psychodynamic therapy
  • schema therapy
  • acceptance and commitment therapy
  • trauma therapy
  • cognitive behavioral therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy

The Groves is pleased to be able to bring psychodynamic therapy to the RGV. Psychodynamic therapy is the original and traditional form of therapy based on the idea that thoughts and feelings you may not be aware of can cause problems such as anxiety, depression, poor self-esteem and difficulty in relationships. Research indicates that psychodynamic therapy is among the most effective approaches to lasting change. Psychodynamic therapy is not just focused on symptoms, but has the goal of increasing your tolerance for stress and negative emotions such as anxiety, depression, and low selfesteem.

Trauma Treatment

The Groves is pleased to be able to offer treatment specialized for the needs of individuals who have been through trauma. Our trauma specialists have advanced credentials in the treatment of trauma, including certification in the treatment of complex trauma, which often occurs from ongoing childhood abuse. Our staff includes clinicians who have been contracted with the VA and law enforcement agencies to provide treatment for PTSD and who have directed intensive trauma treatment programs. If you suffer from trauma related psychological issues, our staff are there for you with a comprehensive treatment plan that can include intensive therapy, medication and skills building sessions to reduce the impact of trauma symptoms on your daily life.

Schema Therapy

Schema therapy is an integrative approach that aims to treat personality disorders and other mental health concerns that don’t always respond to other treatment options. In schema therapy, you’ll work with a therapist to uncover and understand your unhelpful patterns that some people develop if their emotional needs aren’t met as a child, also known as schemas. These schemas can affect you throughout life and contribute to problematic coping methods and behaviors if they aren’t addressed. Schema therapy aims to teach you how to ensure your emotional needs are met in a healthy way that doesn’t cause distress.
