Mental health disorders are chronic, long-term medical conditions that affect the way we think and feel. They can touch us all regardless of age, race, gender or social status, and symptoms can be severe enough to disrupt everyday life. Without treatment, it can even be difficult to go to work or school. Fortunately, you can feel better with the right support and find relief from your symptoms. We’re here to make it easier.

Psychotherapy, sometimes known as talk therapy, is an effective way to help people with a broad range of mental health concerns. In psychotherapy, you’ll work one-on-one with a mental health counselor to identify the root of your suffering and find new ways to cope with challenging symptoms and situations. There are many different kinds of psychotherapy available, but common approaches include individual and group therapy, play therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy to inspire positive changes that help you take charge of your mental health and rediscover your balance. Therapy can be provided online or in-person and may be used alongside other proven treatments such as medication.
Groups provide a safe haven where individuals can find hope, healing and community among their peers. You won’t have to walk the road to mental wellness alone as you connect with others who have had similar experiences and spark a journey of personal growth. Group therapy at Sokya is available online, bringing people together from all over the world to share their stories, gain new insights and build authentic relationships.
The use of pharmaceutical medications to manage and treat mental health disorders is known as psychopharmacology. Effective treatment with psychiatric drugs begins with a thorough evaluation of your symptoms and an assessment of the benefits that a certain medication may have on your thoughts, mood and behaviors. This is a collaborative process, where we’ll work together to find the right combination and balance to promote optimal health. We also provide ongoing medication management and regular follow-ups or adjustments to ensure the best long-term results. This service is available online or in person.
Sometimes, we need help reaching our goals or solidifying our intentions. Online coaching provides a way for you to stay on track and deal with any obstacles that prevent you from achieving your full potential. Our certified coaches are experts in their fields and provide the support, guidance and feedback to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
Evaluation and assessment tools are used to assess an individual’s thinking, behavior, and social and emotional functioning. They involve standardized tests and procedures that can be administered to both children and adults. The results of these tests can be used to help guide treatment to ensure that the correct symptoms are managed in the appropriate way.
Esketamine therapy is sometimes used as part of a multidisciplinary approach to help patients coping with treatment-resistant depression. Our expert medical clinicians are available to help you get started with Spravato and guide you through the program. While the process can begin online with our care coordinators, esketamine can only be administered in person at our South Anchorage location to ensure its safety and effectiveness.
