Individual therapy or psychotherapy involves working one-on-one with a therapist to problem solve, plan, and implement positive changes in your life. We provide individual therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. Young children are helped individually through experiential and play therapy.
People come in for therapy for a variety of reasons including treatment for depression, anxiety, self - esteem issues, eating issues, resolving past trauma, relationship dissatisfaction, or feelings of emptiness.
Psychotherapy is a beneficial tool to encourage self-growth and self-actualization. Therapy can help people to break down barriers which can often inhibit positive emotions such as joy, compassion, peace, self-esteem, spiritual connection, wholeness, and love.
Sessions may focus on current or past problems, experiences, thoughts, feelings, conflict, or relationships. This may involve learning new skills, trying out new behaviors, working through old issues, grieving, or letting go of things that no longer contribute to peace and well-being.
