Our counselors will assist you in defining your goals and developing a treatment plan to help attain them. While you gain greater focus and peace within your thoughts and feelings, the therapist acts as a non-judgmental guide to help you recognize patterns in your behavior and identify alternatives to avoid repeating past problems. Our therapists can provide counseling for individual adult clients for a wide range of issues: Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Work Related stress, Interpersonal Problems, Depression, Divorce, Parenting, and Relationship Issues just to name a few.
When you begin counseling, you have the opportunity to openly talk about your thoughts and feelings while being guided by a professional and caring therapist. Our clients often seek individual therapy when their internal struggles begin to affect their daily lives. The presenting concern may be some recent stress, an ongoing conflict, or other life struggles that you have been unable to resolve alone. You might worry initially that talking about yourself to a counselor might be awkward or uncomfortable, but most clients find individual sessions to be an enjoyable release of their pent up feelings and a path toward personal growth.
