Individual therapy is where we will explore your feelings, beliefs, or behaviors to better understand yourself. Together we will seek to identify patterns or aspects of your life that you may like to change or strengthen.
Some people think that a therapist is just a person you pay to listen to your problems. And while compassionate listening is an important part of therapy, I’ve spent many years studying how people change and the ways the mind works to be able to help you reach your desired outcomes. And, honestly, an outside perspective can really help when you are seeking to make a positive change.
Individual therapy can benefit people in so many ways. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:
- Attaining a better understanding of yourself and others
- Developing skills for improving your relationships
- Finding resolution to issues you haven’t worked through yet
- Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
- Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
- Improving communications skills
- Changing old behavior patterns
- Improving your self-esteem and self-worth
