Here are some other forms of Individual Therapy we offer.

Individual ‘Family Relationship’ Therapy

Family is one of the major sources for the development of personal strength and self-esteem.
When things go wrong, there is no shame in seeking the help of a professional to help you sort through issues within your family individually.

Some of the things we will explore in this type of counseling are:

    • What is keeping you tied to your parents?
    • Exploring fears around independence.
    • Defining what your values and goals are.
    • Being okay with having different beliefs from your parents.

Through these sessions we will help you break away from old behavior patterns that are harmful and establish new, healthier alternatives.

Interpersonal Relationship Therapy

Relationships of all types can bring us joy, but when there is communication or conflict resolution problems, that joy has the potential to turn into frustration and disappointment.
Using both short-term solution-focused therapy and deeper relational techniques, we will teach you how to form stronger boundaries, speak up, and learn how to assert yourself in friendships, romantic relationships, and professional relationships.

Our Individual Therapy can include:

    • Identifying and drawing boundaries
    • Communication and conflict resolution solutions
    • Defining your identity in-person and online
    • Codependency issues
    • Addiction
    • Sexual issues

Individual Sex Therapy

Sex therapy is talk therapy that focuses on all aspects of sexuality. It does not include any physical contact or examinations. The session may include discussion of functioning, communication around, and feelings about sexual interactions. Sex therapy can be a part of regular individual therapy when appropriate. Sex therapy can also address impulse control issues such as excessive pornography use or unwanted extra-relationship sexual contact. For more information about what sex therapy is, go to aasect.org. If you are wondering if sex therapy is appropriate in your situation you can discuss this with your counselor during the initial session.

C-PTSD Therapy

Complex PTSD can be a result of a wide variety of traumas. From vehicular accidents, domestic violence, sexual abuse or assault, vicarious trauma (experiencing an attack as a bystander, death of a loved one), abusive family, etc. C-PTSD can impact your physical and mental health, your professional life, your friendships, and your romantic relationships. Intense physical and psychological reactions can be debilitating and result in substance abuse, oppositional defiant and self-destructive behavior, and separation anxiety. Through talk therapy we can explore healthy ways to cope and move forward; past the shame, past the anxiety, past the guilt, we can help you develop a stronger sense of self.

Anxiety Therapy

Anxiety impacts individuals of all ages. While everyone feels some level of anxiety once in awhile, others can be deeply impacted by anxiety. It looks like a lot of different things but it can
have severe adverse effects on your daily life. Sleep problems, difficulty focusing, restlessness, and frequent fatigue are just some of the many symptoms anxiety sparks. If you’re feeling helpless in managing your anxiety, we can help you talk out and explore healthy ways to manage your symptoms. Whether you’re a teen or a young adult, there is no shame in seeking help.
