Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy is used to improve overall well-being and resolve personal, relationship problems, and to explore who you are designed to be.  Individual therapy can be helpful for people who are single, newly dating, or for those whose partners are not ready or unwilling to come to couple’s treatment. Similarly some clients seek out individual therapy as it provides more individual attention and privacy for your concerns. Together we can figure out what might be getting in the way of you having the life or relationship that you desire but cannot currently achieve.

Areas of focus for individual therapy:

  • Unpacking and understanding family of origin and how it affects your present life

  • Learning how to reduce and cope with stress

  • Finding relief from depression, anxiety, and past hurts

  • Cultivating positive self-worth, identity and self-acceptance

  • Managing life transitions, such as going to college, relocating, changing jobs, getting married, deciding to have children, and separation/divorce, mid-life crisis, and empty nest

  • Career and professional development

  • Relationship issues or dating patterns that lead to unsuccessful, or “dead-end” romances

  • Contemplating or recovering from a difficult break-up or divorce

  • Dealing with infidelity (past or present) and betrayal

  • Setting boundaries with a romantic partner or feeling codependent

We often feel unhappy with our current situation or unsure about how to get to the next step in our lives. I strive to meet you where you are at in each and every session, while helping you to find direction and move forward. My practice involves encouraging and challenging clients to identify and build upon their strengths to create positive changes in their lives.
