Individual therapy is a process that focuses on growth and change. Talking about our issues and understanding our feelings paves the way to becoming more aware of the source of our struggles and painful feelings. This awareness allows us to perceive and create options in our lives, of which you may not have been aware. It focuses on finding ways to deal more effectively with feelings, behaviors, relationships and life's challenges.
What to expect for your first session?
Therapy is a collaborative process. The first two or three session often focus on gathering information. Our licensed therapist speaks with the person in treatment about their past physical, mental, and emotional health. It will also discuss the concerns bring the person to therapy.
