Individual therapy

We often see and treat clients who struggle with feeling stuck, feeling like they are not good enough, or not quite understanding why they are feeling disconnected or unfulfilled.

In therapy we can help you identify how you feel about yourself and how you experience your circumstances. We find new and more useful ways of thinking, both about your self and about your surroundings. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and similarly well researched approaches we can help you change thinking and behavioral patterns that in turn influence how you feel.

Some of the difficulties we have experience treating:

  • Low self-esteem or self-worth
  • Motivational concerns, procrastination, feeling stuck
  • Fears, avoidance, disconnection
  • Uncontrolled emotional reactions including anger or crying
  • Relationship difficulties, loneliness
  • Existential issues (such as life purpose, search for meaning, happiness

First steps in therapy include helping you describe your concerns, history and potential causes. We then identify what positive change might be, and how you would like to be in the future. Finally we find ways to move you towards that change. As suggested above, we utilize cognitive behavioral methods, but also tailor our approach to best suit your concerns. 

Anxiety and mood reactions often yield to cognitive methods and offer the fastest improvement. With more complicated concerns, such as issues stemming from difficult or non-nurturing family backgrounds, or repetitious or addictive behaviors and thinking patterns, we use methods from several more humanistic and dynamic theoretical backgrounds, including schema therapy, person centered and emotion focused therapies.
