Individual Therapy is an opportunity to meet with a therapist one-on-one within a safe and confidential environment to examine issues within the privacy of a psychotherapeutic session. Individual counseling provides "therapeutic intimacy" to discuss relationship issues, childhood issues, or problems surfacing due to employment, career or personal life changes.
Individual therapy is available for adults, adolescents and children.
Individual therapy provides a safe environment to discuss identity issues, concerns about one’s intimate relationship, or feelings of depression or anxiety. During times of stress, we sometimes misuse or abuse alcohol or other substances, find ourselves overeating or engaging in other destructive behaviors. Learning healthier coping strategies and facing confusing and often conflicting feelings can be positive steps towards living a healthier and happier life.
Individual therapy also provides a safe environment to deal with painful issues that we sometimes try to avoid — issues involving sexual, emotional or physical abuse in childhood or adulthood, dysfunctional family issues, or deep depressions and suicidal feelings. Finding a safe space to address these concerns can break the isolation and begin a process of healing.
When problems are directly related to relationships — i.e., intimate partners, parents and children, or friends — individual sessions with a therapist can serve as a "safe space" to examine and contemplate feelings and issues. All "individual" problems take place within a wider sphere that impact — and are impacted by relationships with others. Relationship, Marriage, and Family Therapy is also available.
Individual sessions are the standard "50-minute therapy hour," with 10 minutes at the end to set up the next appointment. Follow this link to receive information on Fees and Insurance. To make an appointment, please contact Choices Counseling & Consulting.
