Individual Adult and Adolescent Psychotherapy
Many people suffer from Depression and/or Anxiety Disorders. Research shows that upwards of 85% of people who use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for these issues get better. There are many reasons why people may suffer from Depression and Anxiety but both depression and anxiety disorders are often treatable with individual psychotherapy and without medication. Sometimes people get better faster when they use medication in conjunction with psychotherapy.
I am happy to work with each patient in a way that is comfortable for him/her. If a patient is already taking medications to help with depression or anxiety, or prefers medication in conjunction with psychotherapy, I welcome the opportunity to work with their physician during the course of our work together. Other psychotherapy techniques, such as mindfulness, work well solely, or in conjunction with CBT in the treatment of psychiatric issues.
Many experts in the couples therapy field believe that couples often wait too long to seek help with relationship issues. Couples counseling can benefit the couples’ relationship in many ways:
- the couple will learn skills to communicate more effectively with each other.
- the couple is more likely to develop a deeper connection with each other
- each individual will better be able to understand their partner and partner’s needs, as well as their own.
- the couple will learn to resolve conflicts in a healthy manner
- the couple will be able to utilize the therapist to help monitor progress, mediate conflict, and provide instruction, coaching, and feedback
Family counseling provides a place where problems are addressed in a way to best serve everyone involved. In family therapy, each member that participates has an advocate in the therapist. Everyone in family therapy is free to express their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. It also provides a place where families can learn to communicate better and subsequently helps to improve relationships and connections between family members. Additionally, the self-esteem of all the members who participate can be improved.
