Sunstone Psychotherapy Mental Health Counseling is a group therapy practice located in Valley Stream, NY. The therapists at Sunstone Psychotherapy Mental Health Counseling are passionate about working with individuals who are part of LGBTQ, kink, or neurodivergent communities. Many of their clients face overwhelming stress and resort to unhealthy coping strategies to deal with this stress, including substance use, excoriation, or engaging in toxic relationships. This stress could come from an experiencing discrimination due to an identity that they hold, academic pressures, chronic illness, insomnia, or difficulty managing their emotions.
The therapists at Sunstone Psychotherapy Mental Health Counseling provide empathetic, kind support for clients of all backgrounds. They help clients reflect upon their motivation to make change in their lives, which can deepen their understanding of what’s holding them back from feeling emotionally comfortable. Often, instigating and maintaining change can be incredibly difficult, so the therapists at Sunstone Psychotherapy Mental Health Counseling guide clients through incremental, intentional changes that last. Clients also learn emotional regulation techniques from an evidence-based therapy modality called Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT is a thoughts-based therapy, which means that clients learn how to identify negative thought patterns and replace them with healthier alternatives. This includes negative self-talk or self-judgment that can lead to difficult mental health challenges.
At Sunstone Psychotherapy Mental Health Counseling, sessions are a welcoming, inclusive space to talk about what’s going on. The therapists have extensive experience building trust with clients, so they can benefit from therapy treatment. They empower clients to utilize healthy coping skills to manage their emotions and strengthen healthy relationships with others.
