Individual Therapy

Feel lost in the crowd – faceless, voiceless, like no one cares, nothing will ever get better?

I work with individuals, men and women, with a variety of issues – mental health and substance problems and relapses, anger and emotions, depression, anxiety, grief, guilt and shame, sexual and sexual identity problems, and past trauma/PTSD to name a few. Many are always angry, socially withdrawn, lonely, but can’t handle connection to others.

Problems like these affect your work, relationships, sleep, appetite, as well as your hopes and dreams for the future. I help people to quiet and calm their minds, help them get back in touch with their bodies, learn how to deal with and express their emotions appropriately, and reconnect socially.

The Process
After your free consultation you and I will work together to get the assessment and treatment plan done in two sessions. We’ll use your treatment plan as a guide or road map as we move together into therapy.

Expect at least the first two therapy sessions after the assessment to focus on your safety, stress management, and emotional regulation vs the problem(s) you want help with. These sessions are for your safety, learning skills that can help you in and outside of therapy.

Therapy typically runs an additional 10 sessions, sometimes less and sometimes more. If past trauma is a factor for you I’ll strongly encourage you to work on that.

Some of the things I commonly address in therapy include companionship, respect, trust, boundaries, emotional and physical intimacy, relationship expectations, needs and assumptions, values, goals, and beliefs, as well as communication, baggage, and past trauma. I also take a look at physical health and often make recommendations here as well.

Bottom line, I can generally help, and I’ve helped several thousand people with a variety of problems.

Have some questions or want to schedule a free consultation? Send me an email including your availability in the coming week. I’ll respond within 24-hours with a day and time that works for both of us.
