Individual therapy is also called psychotherapy, counseling, and talk therapy. All of these terms are based on the belief that talking about what is troubling you with a therapist can help you to understand and find solutions to problems which are interfering with the enjoyment of your day to day life.
I have seen therapy result in a number of benefits, such as a reduction in depression, stress, and anxiety; a decrease in negative thoughts and self-defeating behaviors; improved social, work, and family relationships; and increased self-confidence. During the course of therapy, you may also experience some discomfort, including remembering and discussing difficult events, feelings, and experiences. I will help you deal with any feelings which arise in order for you to understand your inner world, learn coping skills, communicate better, improve self-esteem, understand self-defeating patterns, and create change.
At times, when one has experienced trauma, especially childhood trauma, one doesn’t have the words or memories readily available. I find working with the mind-body connection beneficial at these times as there is often a physical manifestation of the trauma which is unable to be verbalized. Please read my blog article for more information.
Finding a therapist you are comfortable working with is essential in order to get the most out of treatment. I will work to create a safe, nonjudgmental space where trust can build and where you can feel comfortable being open and honest. Email me to schedule an appointment.
