Individual counseling is a collaborative effort between you and your counselor, a 1-on-1 process. The goal is to provide an open, supportive, and confidential environment for you to address the issues, or barriers, in your life and help you down a path toward achieving your personal goals.
Couples therapy, helps couples — married or not — understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Couples therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve, and even argue in a healthier way.
Couples therapy can be short term or long term. Some couples may need only a few sessions to help them weather a crisis, while other couples may need counseling for several months if their relationship has greatly deteriorated.
Children & Adolescents Counseling
Are you concerned for your child because they are having difficulty at home, in school, in the family or with friends? Children and adolescent counseling (3 to 18 years of age ) provides individualized counseling to meet the needs of a troubled child or adolescent who is experiencing emotional, academic, psychological, family, vocational or social distress.
Children, as well as adults, can be affected by emotional strains that need to be resolved through counseling. Depression, low self-esteem, poor school performance, ADHD/ADD, eating disorders, social isolation and shyness, bullying, sexual maltreatment, substance abuse — are some of the problems that children and young adults struggle with today.
Family counseling is a type of counseling that may have one or more objectives. Family counseling may help to promote better relationships and understanding within a family. It may be incident specific, as for example family counseling during a divorce, or the approaching death of a family member. Alternately family counseling may address the needs of the family when one family member suffers from a mental or physical illness that alters his or her behavior or habits in negative ways.
Family counseling often occurs with all members of the family unit present. This may not always be the case. A family member who suffers from an addiction might not attend sessions, and might actually be the reason why other family members seek out family counseling.
Part of the goal of the therapist is to observe interactions between family members. Another part is to observe the perception of non-interacting family members. In addition to observation the therapist often helps the family reflect on better ways of communicating with each other, so family counseling may in part be instruction and encouragement. In fact, family counseling often teaches family members new and more positive ways to communicate to replace negative communication patterns.
Group therapy is a form of therapy in which people benefit from shared experiences. Usually group therapy is focused on a particular issue, for example, anger management, domestic violence, and other topics. Length of group therapy also varies per group. Group therapy may take place for a defined period of time. Conversely, it may be open-ended, allowing people to drop in as needed. More organized groups may last for a certain period of time and require regular attendance for optimal results. Most group therapy sessions require a time commitment and a registration/payment upfront.
