…Then it might be time to get some help with Individual Therapy.
Individual therapy is a type of therapy where the therapist meets one-on-one with the client. Individual therapy can be provided many different ways such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or solution-focused therapy. Together the therapist and client work together to solve issues. Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. People in therapy can learn skills for handling difficult situations, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals. Many find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware. Some people even go to ongoing therapy for self-growth.
I look forward to providing you professional help in a supportive, trusting environment. If you’re looking for an understanding ear in a one-on-one environment, please contact me today for an appointment.
