Individual Counseling

Unlocking Your Potential

About individual counseling

The reasons people start individual counseling are as vast as the people themselves. For some, they may be going through a difficult phase or season in life. Transitioning jobs, locations, relationships, or roles in life can lead to stress, and it may be helpful to begin counseling to process through all the changes that are occurring.

Others may have noticed patterns in their relationships with others that are getting in the way of their ability to have really healthy connections. These may be related to things that occurred during childhood, challenges related to family members, or difficulties communicating or navigating conflict. Some individuals need assistance learning tools and skills to help them during times of depression or anxiety, and may have struggled with mental health issues for years or just a short time. Still others experienced deep wounds or traumatic events through their lives that are now making it hard to even function or carry on in everyday life.

There also are those who generally just want to learn to increase their understanding of themselves and their patterns, or who may be on a journey of spiritual discovery in life. These individuals may be seeking a place to gain insight and general self-growth, without a specific problem or concern.

I'm here to help you

Whatever your reason for beginning individual therapy, I am here to help. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am trained to deal with a wide variety of presenting concerns. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Past or present Relationship Issues, whether romantic, friendship or family related
  • Major life changes like divorce, grief, infertility, or becoming a first time parent
  • Anxiety, depression and emotional health (feeling too much or too little)
  • Self esteem and self-image
  • Sexual abuse or a history of trauma
  • Career changes and discovering interests or new career options
  • Stress management and finding a healthy work/life balance
  • Spiritual exploration or self-growth
  • and many more!

If for some reason, I am not able to assist you with a specific issue, I can still provide you with some names and numbers of other talented clinicians who might be even more specialized in the area you are struggling, and can definitely help point you in the right direction. This is why I generally encourage those interested in starting therapy to attend a first session with me, or participate in a brief phone consultation, where I can get a better idea of what is going on and we can together come up with a plan that will work best for you.
