Understanding Your Therapy
As an individual in counseling or therapy your improvement in treatment will depend on the issues you are addressing and your openness to the process. Your use of this process, with my skilled listening and guidance, is likely to result in you feeling better. Individual psychotherapy is for adults, young adults, teens, and children (ages 5 and above).
There may be times in this process when feelings of unhappiness, anger, anxiety or tension may increase for a short time. Yet, the overall goal is to lessen your painful symptoms and introduce you to the joy of living freely, perhaps for the first time.
It is my commitment to offer you care and give constructive feedback, and to maintain confidentiality. It is your commitment to attend scheduled appointments, to be active and open in the process, to practice new skills for coping, to follow any medication regime that is part of your overall wellness, and to pay fees at the time of service.
There are specific times to seek individual psychotherapy, like during transitions: such as when a young adult is launching from home or an older adult is retiring. Or, perhaps there are work related stressors or relationship related issues that require your specific needs for growth as an adult, young adult, teen or child. See specialties to determine if your issue/concern is listed.
I find it a privilege to journey with the clientele I have served over the past 13 years as a psychotherapist. And, I bring 25 years of experience as an educator, caregiver, administrator, retreat directress, workshop leader (see my resume for details) and co-journeyer to support your unique healing process. Come join me as together we seek Freedom Through Psychotherapy: Transforming Lives, Healing Hearts.
