I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
We often internally struggle with concerns, mulling them over in own minds and trying to sort out possible solutions to their challenges. We may talk things over with family and friends, but sometimes that may not be enough. Talking to a therapist can be a good option for addressing these concerns. What happens in therapy depends on the unique needs and strengths of each person seeking support. Each therapy experience is unique, just as every individual is unique.
All appointments are scheduled as soon as possible given availability, concerns, and resources.
Early sessions are spent exploring and clarifying the problem and examining what solutions you have already tried. This process assists the therapist in determining which therapeutic approach might be most helpful to you. Once you and your therapist clarify your concerns, together you will identify therapy goals.
During individual sessions, you will work with your therapist to address your concerns. Often, the process involves increasing self-understanding, identifying patterns, gaining a better sense of how you are influenced by your surroundings, and learning and practicing new problem-solving or coping skills.
Group therapy is a powerful tool for growth and change. In group therapy, 5-10 individuals meet face to face to share their struggles and concerns with the facilitation of a group therapist. The power in group therapy lies in the unique opportunity to receive multiple perspectives, support, encouragement, and feedback from other individuals in a safe and confidential environment. These interpersonal interactions can provide group members an opportunity to deepen their level of self-awareness and to learn how they relate to others.
Group therapy can be a safe and supportive place to experiment with new ideas and ways of being.
