Your Journey to New Beginnings
Individual and Family Therapy
We know what it takes to truly make a difference using passion, knowledge, and warmth. By creating a secure and relaxing space, we will help guide you forward. It is our honor to serve you.
Building partnerships that embrace education and change, and support people in reaching their goals and living confident, independent lives.
Do you feel overwhelmed with things that never seemed to affect you before? Is it difficult to get out of bed and everything feels like work? Do you feel empty or angry? You may be feeling intense emotions right beneath the surface and this can effect your relationships and responses.
You will examine your thoughts, process your past, and learn skills to feel better and improve your self-care. Psycho education, receptive relaxation, guided imagery, mindfulness, meditation, exposure desensitiation, journaling, and other interventions are all part of the process.
We understand that every client is different. To make sure we fully understand you and what you hope to get out of your therapy experience, our process will help guide your journey to a positive place and make a lasting impact on your life.
Your therapist will conduct a comprehensive assessment by asking you about your mood, physical health, environment, past experiences, chemical use, relationships, employment, general functioning, and other areas. This initial session allows you and your therapist to get to know each other, and the outcome of this information may lead to a diagnosis. A diagnosis is requried by your insurance company.
Within the next 1-2 sessions, you and your therapist will put together a treatment plan. You may be asked to invite important people in your life to participate, because it adds another perspective and could increase your support. Your treatment plan revolves around the vision you have for your life and identifying goals and steps to change the things holding you back from living the life you want.
At each session you will be asked about your mood, life changes, stress level, self care, safety, basic needs, substance use if related, and what your support system is like. Your therapist may ask about assignments, clarify issues or concerns from the last session, and focus on new developments. There will be a mutual, continuous assessment of how things are going and whether you have reached your goals.
“If everyone is moving forward together,
success takes care of itself.”
