Adult Individual Therapy
The relationship we have with ourselves is very important; we can be our best friend or our worst enemy. In therapy we may work to increase your understanding of yourself so that you feel unburdened, content or more present and curious. Further, working toward a specific goal or focusing on an intention to change or attain balance within your multiple roles are common areas of focus in individual therapy.
Adolescents are remarkable beings that are continually in flux and developing. With the multitude of changes they endure on a social and psychological level, therapy can be extremely grounding and a way to learn about themselves in a safe environment. I am a champion of our young and believe that engaging in a meaningful relationship and modeling sound reasoning can make a remarkable difference in a teens life. Treatment may address social issues, such a bullying, decision making skills, or on developing coping skills to increase resiliency in the face of trauma or adversity.
The challenges parents face are insurmountable at times and support or encouragement may be needed. By working with parents and children, families strengths are leveraged for positive change as communication and engagement is fostered. Further, learning about what is developmentally appropriate for your child may increase feelings of relief while allowing you the space to promote structure, acknowledgment, teaching/modeling and love in your home.
