Individual Therapy
Individual Therapy

Individual therapy involves meetings between a client and a therapist to tackle areas of concern, such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma. While some people may recognize these issues in themselves, others might enter therapy feeling overly exposed, drained, and lacking in energy. They might struggle with sleep, motivation, and a feeling that they are not living their life fully. Some may feel constantly on edge, experience panic attacks, or struggle to balance the demands of work and personal life.

The goal of individual therapy is to uncover and address the root causes of these challenges. A key part of this process is building a trusting and respectful relationship between the client and the therapist. This foundation allows clients to safely examine and work through difficult thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, with the ultimate aim of making changes to lead a more satisfying life.

Therapy may also include practical, solution-focused strategies, and homework to extend the benefits of therapy outside of sessions. Techniques such as exposure therapy might be used to confront fears directly, helping to reduce emotional reactions and alleviate anxiety symptoms. Your therapist will work with you to determine the most effective combination of approaches to meet your specific needs.

Couples Therapy

Couples seek therapy for a range of challenges. Many find it hard to communicate constructively, leading to patterns of contempt, frequent arguments, or withdrawal. Some couples might avoid conflict altogether, resulting in a loss of intimacy. Infidelity, too, places a heavy burden on relationships, often leaving lingering feelings of betrayal, anger, and distrust.

These issues are common reasons couples come to therapy, often after months or years of attempting to navigate these conflicts on their own, only to fall back into detrimental patterns. This cycle can foster feelings of shame and perceived failure. Sometimes, it feels as though the relationship has become more about maintaining the status quo than about meaningful connection.

The aim of couples therapy is multi-layered. Fundamentally, it's about understanding each partner's role in the relationship dynamics, not to assign blame but to recognize how individual histories may be influencing current interactions. Establishing effective communication is crucial, and while being completely open and honest might seem daunting at first, your therapist will guide you in expressing your feelings in a way that's impactful yet respectful.

During therapy, the established balance between you and your partner might be unsettled, which, despite being uncomfortable, is often an essential step towards a deeper connection. The objective isn't to eliminate conflict, but to manage disagreements constructively. Relationships can be challenging, but they shouldn't consistently feel like an uphill battle.

We also extend our support to polyamorous couples, recognizing the unique dynamics and challenges within these relationships. We invite you to schedule an appointment to explore how we can assist in healing past wounds, rejuvenating your connection, and fostering growth in your relationship(s).

Group Therapy
Group Therapy

Group therapy brings together 3-8 individuals with the shared goal of understanding themselves and their interactions with others. While participants may have varied personal objectives, the core focus is on recognizing how interpersonal dynamics hinder personal growth. The group setting acts as a smaller version of the wider world, where the challenges participants face in their daily lives tend to surface in their interactions within the group, including with the facilitator(s).

A key element of group therapy is the encouragement to be open and honest about one's thoughts and feelings concerning the group, individual members, and the facilitator(s). The sessions are designed to be a safe space for experimenting with new ways of relating to others, providing and receiving support, and ultimately fostering a readiness to embrace new experiences with greater openness and flexibility.

Participants are expected to follow the guidelines outlined in the group contract, which will be developed collaboratively. If you're interested in exploring how group therapy might benefit you, please send us a message.
