Stairways Outpatient Clinics

Stairways Outpatient Clinics provide timely access to services from skilled and caring teams of professionals. Lauded throughout the state for significantly improving accessibility and service to the customer, our clinics have evolved into responsive, comprehensive programs focused on improving the quality of life for individuals and the community as a whole.

Our clinics take a wholistic approach to mental health treatment and wellness. Therefore, services are provided by a team of professionals that include psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and therapists who work closely with you and with one another to ensure that your needs are properly identified and successfully addressed. Our medical staff can provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, ongoing assessments, and medication management.

Stairways has assembled some of the finest, well-trained counselors in Erie and Crawford Counties, who listen intently, understand and guide. Our clinics offer a safe and private space where individuals are free to discuss problems, concerns, fears and challenges. Services take place in an atmosphere of respect, support and encouragement.

Individualized Attention

Individual therapy is a process by which a person’s thoughts, feelings and behavior are clinically explored by the individual and by a trained therapist. Individualized services include complementary and alternative therapies in addition to the treatment of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and post-partum depression, just to name a few.

Individual therapy is an effective treatment method, especially when used in conjunction with group therapy and other healthy lifestyle changes/recommendations.

The Group Therapy Experience: Learning About Self Among Others

Studies suggest the group therapy experience is a very effective approach to improving one’s overall quality of life. Hearing how others cope with their challenges can offer great insight into solving one’s own.

Due to the nature of the group experience, individuals may find groups to be even more beneficial than individual therapy sessions. Groups offer a safe environment in which one can develop a skill, learn how to deal with a psychological disorder or improve the quality of interpersonal relationships. Stairways offers a variety of groups to assist individuals with their day-to-day challenges. All groups are guided by staff who are knowledgeable and concerned about the growth of each group member.

Our outpatient clinics periodically revise group offerings based on individuals’ needs and requests. A list of current groups offered at the Erie and Crawford County clinics are available at each clinic.
