What is Individual Therapy?
Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Who is Individual Therapy for?
People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.
How do I get started?
Your first step is to call us to schedule your initial appointment. You will be asked to provide some initial information over the telephone and fill out our patient consent form. You may then be scheduled for an initial session which provides an opportunity for us to build a rapport. In addition, we will be able to answer your questions regarding services, fees, confidentiality and what to expect in therapy.
