Individual Therapy

When an individual decides “I need to talk to someone” they are likely feeling lost, uncomfortable, confused, and sometimes without hope. Individual therapy (IT) is a process of discovery. IT begins with a deep dive into you as a person; and all the elements that have brought you to this point in your life. IT will help you understand why you are feeling the way you are, how you ended up in your particular situation and mostly importantly what are possible solutions or understandings that might rectify the situation or alleviate your distress. At its best, IT results in more than feeling better, it allows you to grow into the person you want to be. My goal for you is to leave IT with a personal mental toolbox that includes new understandings, new coping and a renewed sense of self.

The Most Common Presenting Issues for Individual Therapy:

Depression/Anxiety, Relationship Distress, Divorce Spectrum Issues, Parenting Training, Need for Increased Self/Identity Understanding, Emotional Well Being Professional Growth Issues, and Issues connected to Childhood

The Process:

Individual Therapy (as all the Services I provide) begins with a 90 minute Intake. This first session allows for deep and clear understanding of the issues you want to address. This meeting also allows you to examine how you feel in session with my particular style and in the setting I provide. If we agree at the end of this meeting to work together, we move into regularly scheduled weekly sessions which are either 50 or 75 minutes.

The Approach:

My approach to Individual Therapy utilizes many schools of thought in psychology –however the main approaches I draw from are Psychodynamic Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Theory/Top Down Approaches, Neuroscience Teachings and Interpersonal Neurobiology.

I teach you and work from my personally developed program: “Go Left and Be Right”: A Neuro-Emotional Program designed to help individuals use their understanding of the brain to observe, manage and change their relationship with the self and with others.
