What happens in an individual therapy session?
After discussing client history and defining goals in the first session we will come up with a plan. The plan is suited to the client’s pace. We can decide whether to work on processing a problem, or trying new coping skills to make a change. This is where I challenge you to try new things!
What do people work on in therapy?
The possibilities are endless. There’s no issue too big or small. We can work on something like military combat trauma or how to set boundaries with loved ones.
With individual therapy the universal goal for my clients is to begin to live wholeheartedly. Are you a person in search of a toolbox for processing your trauma? Or do you need help taming your anxiety? I have found that even the most “successful” of us have baggage to unpack. Whether you are in need of a guide or a good listener, I am here to help.
What type of therapy do you use?
I adapt therapy to fit the needs of my client, so I do not always use the same types of therapy. Primarily, I use Solution Focused Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). I like making sessions richer with the use of guided meditation, reiki, aromatherapy, and various sensory coping skill techniques.
I offer EMDR therapy as one way to work through what is bothering you. EMDR is an evidence based, mind/body therapy designed to help the brain heal itself from trauma or distressing events.
