Individual Therapy

Are you overwhelmed with fear, sadness, or anger?  Do you feel stuck, unable to make significant changes in your life?  Have you experienced a traumatic life event or a difficult transition?  Do you feel lost?

We are here for you. 

Why should I give therapy a try?

Few things in life are designed purely for someone’s personal growth and wellbeing.  Psychotherapy (also commonly referred to as therapy or counseling) is an interactive and collaborative process focused on improving your life and helping you find peace.  Therapy is your chance to speak freely and without judgement in a confidential setting with a well-trained mental health professional.

Life is full of challenges.  Relational difficulties and personal struggles can feel isolating and withering.  Many of us feel alone in our suffering, stuck in an endless loop of trial and error.  This is part of why individual therapy is so helpful.  Individual sessions offer people the chance to find solutions in a cooperative, relational manner. This focus allows for not only general improvement in most areas of life, but the individualized attention each person deserves while going through trials.

You chose your goals, and your therapist helps you get there.  Although each client has different goals, many people struggle with similar issues.  Here are a few examples:

  • Social awkwardness
  • Loss of interest or energy
  • Thoughts of death or ending one’s life
  • Relationship problems
  • Frustration with career or work
  • Constant sense of unease or worry
  • Traumatic life events (abuse, combat, loss)
  • Difficulty controlling anger
  • Bouts of sadness and despair
  • Unemployment
  • Loss of a loved one, friend, or pet

What happens in therapy?

 The first session of therapy tends to run more like an interview. To try and gather as much information as possible in this session and get to know my client. A healthy relationship must be founded on trust and understanding, and the therapy relationship is no different. Taking the time to get to know you will help build a relationship where therapy can happen.  Subsequent sessions are much more conversational and natural – you as the client are running the show.

Motivation for engaging in therapy tends to be essential for progress to occur. Often, well-meaning family members or friends might pressure people to go to therapy.  This pressure tends not to be helpful for the therapist or client.  If your decision to come to therapy was not your own, let your therapist know.

Therapy is for those who need it, but also those are ready.

Does therapy actually work?

Individual psychotherapy is the first line of treatment for issues such as depression (Renner, Cuijpers, & Huibers, 2014; Schramm et al, 2017), anxiety (Bandelow et al, 2015), trauma (Bremner & Campanella, 2016), and other relational and personal issues.  My personal touch to therapy brings a holistic approach designed to enhance your psychological, social, and physical health.  Clients can experience the freedom of sharing their story with a licensed professional counselor in a confidential, judgement-free setting.

As you begin therapy, you will learn to:

  • Manage your emotions
  • Conquer your fear and worry
  • Mend your relationships
  • Express feelings in a healthy manner
  • Be mindful and self-reflective

If you feel overwhelmed, stuck, depressed, anxious, or lost, I can help.  Do not wait for your life to change – you have the power to find healing and reach new heights.  I am committed to helping you reach your goals, find new purpose, and move forward into a happier and healthier life.
