In individual counseling, our qualified therapists work with participants one-on-one to identify their goals and tailor sessions to meet their needs. Our therapist’s goal is to provide a place of safety and security where the participant feels accepted, supported, and heard. The purpose of individual therapy is a person-centered, goal directed process intended to reduce symptoms while promoting feelings of self-worth. Additionally, the participant engages in a self-reflective process to build insight and coping skills that assist in regulating emotions. Some of our specialties include: Depression/Anxiety/PTSD, Trauma, Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Life Transitions, LGBTQ concerns, Self-worth, Self-esteem, and Anger Management.
Couples counseling assists two individuals in developing healthier ways of communicating and connecting in their relationship. The therapist examines the couples current relationship pattern in order to highlight interactions that aren’t working and provide feedback intended to enhance the relationship. Couples counseling is considered more intensive and is not typically considered a long-term treatment. Both partners must be engaged in their relationship treatment and assist in facilitating their own change process, with support from their therapist. It is not uncommon for partners to also be involved in their own individual psychotherapy in conjunction with couples counseling. Couples counseling addresses concerns including: Trust Communication, Infidelity, Repeated Patterns of Stress, Attachment Concerns, Life Transitions, LGBTQ, Premarital Counseling, and Divorce Counseling.
Family counseling assists family members in improving communication, managing stress, and resolving conflict. Counselors who specialize in family therapy view the family as a single unit that functions to either create psychological health or maintain dysfunction. Family therapists use a systems approach to improve relationships and increase collaboration. Sessions may involve 2, 3, 4, or more individuals. Treatment may include a set number of sessions or intermittent sessions, while family members are also engaging in individual therapy. It is considered a 'brief-therapy' and is not meant to be a long-term treatment. Family counseling addresses concerns including: Psychological Health of Family Members, Major Life Transitions, Child or Adolescent Behavioral concerns (ASD, ADD/ADHD), Trauma, Foster Care/Adoption Drug and/or Alcohol Addiction.
