Individual Therapy

A course in individual therapy (also known as counseling) allows you and a therapist to meet regularly and discuss thoughts, behaviors, patterns, and emotions in a safe, caring environment. Your therapist will help you identify concerns and areas of personal dissatisfaction as well as personal strengths.

Throughout the evaluation process, you and your therapist may explore current and past relationships, phase of life issues, and a variety of stressors commonly part of our challenging, modern lifestyles. As you and your therapist achieve greater clarity in understanding your unique personal narrative, you are also provided with the tools, skills, and awareness to make lasting changes and live a more satisfying life.
