Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a process in which you and I explore your feelings, beliefs, behaviors, and/or attitudes about what you are facing. We will look at experiences and how they are affecting your life today; identify any aspects of your life you would like to change, and set goals for those changes.

Family therapy brings families stability. The family is continuously evolving and growing. As changes occur, families experience stress and feel unstable. In therapy, each family member works to help each other to more fully understand their own uniqueness, bringing the family to a deeper relationship.

EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach for the treatment of trauma. EMDR has standardized protocols that incorporate many different treatment approaches. The goal is to process distressing memories, reduce the effects of those memories, and allow an individual to develop more adaptive coping strategies. EMDR uses a technique called “Bi-lateral stimulation” to enhance an individual’s ability to move through the process.
