Individual psychotherapy and counseling can be helpful tools in addressing the afflictions of our daily lives, often caused by past challenges and experiences, as well as current stresses. Among the conditions and symptoms which can propel one into treatment are: situational or chronic depression, anxiety, relationship problems, sudden loss, lack of direction, job problems and stress. Counseling is not only helpful in resolving some of your immediate discomfort but also in helping you develop healthier coping skills for future concerns. Talking about your life difficulties in a supportive, confidential manner can open up greater insight about the patterns and beliefs we have internalized about ourselves and the world, and scientifically based, helpful direction can give us a method for positive change. Developing insight also increases ones awareness and ability to make thoughtful, helpful choices which can improve our quality of life and put us on the path to greater happiness, peace, and fulfillment.
Therapy and counseling can be solution and symptom focused, a course which is generally brief in nature. It can also involve a longer term, more introspective approach where the goal is to uncover the underlying feelings, motivations, and reasons for our behaviors, choices and actions, as well as our potential for self-actualization and personal growth. In either approach, the aim is similar – to afford you a greater range of effective choices for how you manage and experience your life.
Today you are one step closer to a new you, where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
We welcome you, and look forward to a productive and enriching relationship of growth and positive change!
