Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.

Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • Divorce

  • Parent-child conflict

  • Problems between siblings

  • Domestic violence

  • Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member

Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonates with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels.

Some positive family therapy outcomes are:

  • Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries

  • Fostered sense of cohesion and communication among family members

  • Promotes problem solving through understanding of family patterns and dynamics

  • Builds empathy and understanding.

  • Reduces family conflict

Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.

Individual Counseling 

Are you having a difficult time handling the struggles in your life?

Could you use an expert opinion on what you’re going through, or a non-judgemental ear just to listen?

Do you think you could benefit the most from individualized attention?

Are you hesitant to talk to others about your problems?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then individual therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking. Individual therapy differs from group or alternative therapy methods in the way that you are the sole focus of a single therapist who helps you develop and achieve your goals for therapy.

If you’ve been feeling hopeless or lost lately, or struggling with a problem in your life that feels unsurmountable, individual therapy could help you improve your everyday life. Individual therapy helps you win against whatever you’re battling by putting a real expert in your corner by means of a professional therapist.

So if any of these sound like you…

  • You keep worrying about the same problem over and over

  • You don’t know who you could ever trust with knowing about your secret struggle

  • You wish there was somebody who could tell you why you feel this way

  • You’re interested in therapy, but you don’t want to give up total control

  • Other areas of your life are being negatively impacted by your struggle

  • You need somebody to listen to you and your feelings for once

  • You’re interested in therapy, but not sure how it could fit into your life

…Then individual therapy could be right for you.

Individual therapy is so helpful for so many people because it’s the best way to get truly customized therapy. Group therapy may have its own set of numerous advantages but if you want more control over the pacing of your therapy, the methods used, the amount of analysis or feedback you can receive, and the timing of your sessions, you owe it to yourself to look into individual therapy.

If you’re looking for help improving your everyday life – or for a more tailored therapy experience – you would be a great fit for our individual therapy services. Please reach out to me today for an assessment for individual therapy or to schedule your first appointment.

More often than not, drug addictions start with an experimental use of a drug in social situations. And for some people, the drug use becomes more frequent. As time passes, a person may feel the need to use more of a drug to get their desired high, and soon a person may need the drug to simply feel “good.”

Drug addiction symptoms and behaviors include, among others:

  • Feeling the need to use the drug regularly, which can be daily or multiple times a day

  • Having intense urges for the drug

  • Over time, needing more of the drug to get the same effect

  • Making certain that you maintain a supply of the drug

  • Not meeting obligations and work responsibilities

  • Doing things you wouldn’t normally do to get the drug, such as stealing

  • Focusing more and more time and energy one getting and using the drug

  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not using the drug

  • Failed attempts to quit using the drug

If you can relate to any of the above symptoms or behaviors, it may be time to consider addiction counseling.

As an addiction counselor, I will address the symptoms of your addiction and the related areas of impaired functioning, and together we’ll structure the time and content of your ongoing recovery. We will address ways to cope and we can address the things that got you to this point.

I believe that there are many paths to successful recovery that will work with your goals and desires, and ensure you can make the life changes you want to make. Please contact me today so we can schedule an appointment.
