Individual Therapy

Individual psychotherapy (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 therapeutic 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.

Individual therapy can help people cope with issues, including but not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Personal Growth
  • Relationship Issues
  • Grieving and Loss
  • Trauma and Abuse

Our family shapes who we are and can have a powerful influence on how we feel, think, and behave. Family can propel us forward or hold us back. Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • Parent-child conflict
  • Problems between siblings
  • The unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member

Child and adolescent problems can be influenced by a variety of family challenges that include:

  • Adults not on the same page or inconsistent
  • Lack of nurturing interaction between caregivers and children
  • Negative communication
  • Lack of healthy boundaries
  • Unhealed wounds

Our work with families often focuses on fostering the following:

  • Parenting strategies that balance consistent discipline with nurturance
  • Caregivers’ attention to self-care and working as a supportive team
  • Communication strategies that promote empathy, understanding, and healthy boundaries
  • Building family routines and rituals that foster a sense of safety and promote healing

Often in response to challenging situations, children can experience a variety of mental health concerns as they grow. Some common mental health issues for children include:

Anxiety: fears, worries, or panic that can cause children to avoid certain situations, activities, places, or people. Anxiety can also cause children to be overly rigid, clingy or to lash out aggressively.

Depression: sadness, loneliness, loss of interest in activities, fatigue, low self-esteem, sleeping and eating problems that can interfere with concentration and cause children to withdraw from others.

Behavioral Problems: aggression, distractibility, impulsivity, hyperactivity, difficulty following directions that can lead to significant conflict with peers, teachers, and family members.

Adjustment Difficulties: distressing feelings or behavior following a significant life change like the move of a best friend or the arrival of a new sibling.

Trauma: Exposure to traumatic events like bullying, a car accident, the death of a family member, community, and abuse can have profound impact on children. These adverse experiences can cause the problems described above and make it difficult for young people to meet expectations at home, school, and in the community. When these problems go unaddressed, they can hurt a young person’s development and create further struggles that follow them into adulthood.

Our work with children often focuses on helping them develop skills in these areas:

  • Affect Regulation: identifying, understanding, and coping with feelings
  • Cognitive Processing: recognizing the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and adopting helpful ways of thinking
  • Problem Solving: brainstorming possible solutions to problems and trying them out
  • Communication: practicing useful ways to express needs and build relationships
  • Meaning-Making: identifying activities and ways of thinking that foster understanding, healing, and growth after a distressing event

During adolescence, relationships with peers take center stage and concerns about identity dominate. This time can be very challenging for parents as it requires a balance between continuing to provide direction and allowing greater opportunities for independence. It can also be a distressing time for young people. Some common mental health concerns for teens include:

  • Depression: sad/irritable mood, hopelessness, low self-esteem, lack of interest in activities, low energy, eating and sleeping problems, isolating from others, thinking about suicide, self-harm
  • Anxiety: excessive worry, fear, panic, self-consciousness paired with avoidance of situations that cause distress
  • Rule-Breaking: school conflict, violating curfew, leaving home without permission, experimenting with drugs and alcohol, risk-taking
  • Traumatic Stress: distressing thoughts, feelings, and behavior in response to recent or childhood traumatic experiences
  • Identity: Who am I? Identity formation is the central task of adolescence. Navigating this developmental milestone can be compromised further by mental health struggles.

Our work with teens often focuses on helping them develop skills in these areas:

  • Self-Care: creating healthy daily routines that promote balance and wellness
  • Safe Coping: building diverse strategies for accepting, modulating, and expressing emotional experience
  • Competency: honing problem-solving, planning, organization, and self-efficacy
  • Identity Exploration: processing different aspects of identity and clarifying belief systems, values and goals
  • Meaning-Making: placing distressing life events in context, identifying activities and ways of thinking that foster understanding, healing, and growth
