Individual Therapy and Counseling

There are many ways you may benefit from therapy. You may have unexpected changes in your life, or you may be seeking self-exploration and personal growth. Therapy can help you when your coping skills are overwhelmed by guilt, doubt, anxiety, or despair. Sessions can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping for issues such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement, spiritual conflicts, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. Therapy helps you take responsibility for your actions, work towards self-change and create greater awareness in your life.

How Long and How Often are Sessions?

 A session lasts 50 minutes, but some people request longer sessions. Usually weekly sessions are best. Some people who are in crisis or extreme distress need more than one session per week, at least until the crisis passes. During the time between sessions it is beneficial to think about and process what was discussed. At times, you may be asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. For therapy to "work," you must be an active participant, both in and outside of the therapy sessions.
