Individual counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life.

Individual counseling can help one deal with many personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety,

substance abuse, relationship challenges, school difficulties, career changes etc.

Individual Therapy for Adolescents 
Teens experience a great deal of change simultaneously in their young lives. Hormones trigger unprecedented physical changes, including sexual consciousness. Their social lives become more complex and less centered around the parental units. Their cognitive and emotional abilities grow as drastically as their bodies, and a more mature sense of self begins to emerge. Adolescence is characterized by young people exploring their own personal power and the responsibilities that come with that new power. Teens often struggle with how to know their own needs and communicate them assertively, how to resolve conflict peacefully, and how to make beneficial choices. All of this happens to young adults at once, in a rather short window of time! Individual adolescent therapy entails one-on-one time between the counselor and the teenager, helping teens get a handle on their new personal landscape.  We are dedicated to equipping adolescents with tools and techniques for embracing their growth and transformation in stride. 

Individual Therapy for Adults 
Change does not stop at adolescence. Once we reach adulthood the new landscape of emotional autonomy is not so new anymore, but still subject to shocks, challenges, and changes. To stay in balance, an individual must make occasional adjustments. Individual adult therapy encourages adults to examine personal experiences, thoughts, behaviors, and feelings which may be undermining their own happiness. Through individual adult therapy, we help individuals to identify their problems, break them into manageable parts, and tackle the issues thoroughly and consistently. Individual adult therapy can also help adults find ways to enhance their personal support system and improve relationships with themselves and others. Some common adult challenges include:

  • Beating depression

  • Processing and healing after trauma, grief, or loss

  • Managing anger and anxiety

  • Finding and cultivating satisfying, healthy intimate relationships

  • Exploring and embracing major life changes, such as marriage or parenthood

  • Enhancing self knowledge and communicating your needs clearly and genuinely

  • Cultivating your empathy, to comprehend what is going on in someone else's mind

  • Reflecting on what you truly value and formulating realistic ways to live by your values

  • Changing long held assumptions and trying new behavior

  • Substance use/abuse

  • Finding a personal path to healing that is effective and best for you
