Individual therapy (individual counseling)

How can Individual therapy or individual counseling help me?
  • Are you feeling stuck with emotions and thoughts that you cannot share with others. Maybe you have shared these thoughts, but you find yourself repeating the same story to yourself or others. Individual therapy can assist you in moving forward beyond these stories and emotions. 

  • Individual therapy can be helpful if you feel stuck in your current relationships, have a hard time expressing your thoughts or find yourself repeating the same behaviors. Individual therapy is a place that allows you to explore your preferences without judgment.

How does it work?
How long does it take?
  • The length of individual therapy or individual counseling is unique for each individual. It is recommended to initiate with weekly sessions to assist in building momentum toward progress. When improvements are noticed, frequency of sessions may decrease to twice a month or once a month. Some individuals may take breaks and resume therapy in the future. 

  • I collaborate with you to tailor the length of treatment according your specific needs. 

  • I am highly invested in providing a safe, non-judgmental space, where you can feel safe to share your thoughts, and emotions.  I implement techniques that focus on behaviors and emotions. I also emphasize understanding your physical sensations and how they provide cues about your emotions and thoughts. I draw from several techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, Mindfulness and Emotional Freedom Technique. I also provide counseling for trauma, and I apply trauma informed techniques to assist you in moving forward in your life.
