Individual Therapy is an opportunity to develop new strategies for the challenges you might have at your job, with your family, or in a romantic relationship.
Therapy can change your negative patterns of thinking and behavior. Simply put, it helps you understand what makes you tick and how that affects your interaction with the world. As you gain insight into yourself, unwanted symptoms and old patterns disappear. You develop new strategies, stronger coping skills, and a greater sense of personal control.
Talking with a friend, family or colleague can feel therapeutic, but there are certain things that they cannot guarantee, which I can:
What is said in my office, stays in my office. I am bound by the ethics of my profession to maintain confidentiality.
Education and experience
I have been trained with an extensive knowledge base that your friends may not have.
Friends or family may not be objective because they are involved in your life. As a therapist, I do not have an agenda for what you should or shouldn’t do. Effective individual psychotherapy requires your active involvement to help you make the changes you desire in your life. If you are willing to work hard, you can expect therapy to be well worth the time and money you invest.
As an experienced therapist, I can help you with:
- Self esteem
- Relationship problems
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Decreasing feelings of sadness or depression
- Clarifying your goals
- Strengthening social skills
- Managing anger
- Overcoming feelings of isolation and loneliness
- Recognizing self destructive habits
- Finding a balance for love, work, and play
