Individual Therapy: (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Couples/Marriage: There is no human experience more satisfying than a loving, close and happy relationship. On the other hand, there is no experience more emotionally draining and frustrating than an unfulfilling or strained relationship. When love is involved our very quality of life can be at stake. Whether you seek help together as a couple or alone, an experienced counselor can make a significant difference in how your relationship fares. It is best not to wait when it comes to couples therapy. As soon as one partner feels a disconnect, it is a good idea to get help, even if you attend sessions alone. There is a lot that can be done to improve the dynamic of a relationship just by changing one partner’s approach. Marriages have been repaired even when one partner refuses to attend counseling. My approach with helping couples is using a variety of evidence-based couples treatment modalities and methods used in relationship coaching. I customize a treatment plan for you that reflects your needs and expectations as a couple. There is usually a goal to be met each week that is uncomplicated and specific to encourage the development of a healthy and satisfying relationship.
Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy that seeks to reduce distress and conflict by improving the systems of interactions between family members. While family therapists often seek to have all family members (affected by the problem) in the room, that is not always possible or necessary. What distinguishes family therapy from individual counseling is its perspective or framework, not how many people are present at the therapy session. This type of counseling views problems as patterns or systems that need adjusting, as opposed to viewing problems as residing in the person, which is why family therapy is often referred to as a “strengths based treatment.”
Group counseling involves one or more clinicians who lead a group of roughly four to twelve clients . Typically, groups meet for an hour or two each week. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only. The group is designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, obesity, panic disorder, social anxiety, chronic pain or substance abuse.
