The Purpose of Individual Counseling

Individual counseling (also called “talk therapy,” “psychotherapy,” or “therapy”) is a way to rewrite your story.

You’ll talk one-on-one with a trained, licensed mental health expert in a safe, secure, loving environment.

Clients use a counselor to address issues that impact the entire family, such as grief, anger, depression, anxiety, and conflict, plus many more.

Learn why you think, feel, and do the things you do and what started the pattern of behavior in the first.

Receive support on issues like depression, anxiety, parenting, substance abuse, relationship struggles, career changes, school difficulties, and similar issues.

What to Expect In Individual Counseling for Adults and Teens

Counseling can be scary. You’re already feeling alone, fearful, and lonely through something huge, so opening up to a counselor you’ve never met can be hard. 

We provide research-based therapy to clients ranging from ages 3 to 93. Our licensed therapists help you work through challenging situations, difficult feelings, or negative perceptions while helping you better understand yourself and others.

Counselors use research-based therapies in our office, including:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Attachment-Based Therapy
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Gottman Therapy
Play Therapy
