In individual counseling, clients work on improving an issue in their lives. Our counselors are trained to address many mental health issues including depression, anxiety, mood disorders, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship issues, trauma, self-esteem issues, suicidal thoughts, self-harm behavior, PTSD, and so much more.
Counseling groups offer a combination of therapeutic interventions with a sense of togetherness. Group members share common issues and work towards common goals.
Internal Family Systems Therapy
Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy is an approach that looks at the various parts that make up who you are. Some of those parts are wounded or in conflict with one another. The goal of IFS is to heal those wounded parts and create balance within you!
Play therapy is typically used for children ages 4 to 12. Where teens and adults are able to talk about their problems in counseling, children express their feelings through play. Play therapy provides children a space to express their difficult feelings and work through those feelings towards a more balanced life.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
When we experience a traumatic event, it can be difficult for our brain to process it. When we do not process the event appropriately, the memory can continue to trouble us and feel as if we are reliving the trauma repeatedly. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy involves stimulating left brain & right brain with rhythmic vibrations or a trained therapist waving fingers back and forth for you to follow. Research has shown that this process can assist in processing trauma and reduce negative reactions and emotions.
Walk-and-talk therapy uses individual counseling techniques outside of an office! You will work with your counselor on a walking trail or at a park. This approach combines the mental benefits of individual counseling with the physical benefits of exercise. Talk to your counselor to see if they offer walk-and-talk therapy!
