Individual therapy, also known as psychotherapy or counseling, is a form of mental health treatment where a trained therapist provides one-on-one support and guidance to help an individual improve their emotional and psychological well-being. It typically involves meeting with a therapist on a regular basis, usually weekly or bi-weekly, and discussing a wide range of issues and concerns, such as depression, anxiety, stress, relationships, self-esteem, trauma, and other mental health issues.
During individual therapy, the therapist may use various techniques and approaches to help the client identify and understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and to develop new coping skills and strategies. This may include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), psychodynamic therapy, or other types of therapy.
Individual therapy can be helpful for people who are experiencing a wide range of emotional and psychological issues, and can provide a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore their thoughts and feelings, and work towards positive change and personal growth.
We do not believe in the “copy paste” approach and therefore spend the first 2-5 sessions working together at a pace that feels safe and comfortable for you while we explore getting to know you and your history. This ensures each session will be attuned, relevant, and personalized to you and your needs. Individual therapy can either be aimed at working through and healing from your past or preparing for anticipated stressors in your future, or a combination of both.
Couples therapy, also known as marriage counseling or couples counseling, is a form of therapy that helps couples improve their relationship and resolve conflicts. It involves meeting with a trained therapist or counselor, typically on a regular basis, to discuss issues that are causing problems in the relationship.
During couples therapy, the therapist works with both partners to identify and address any issues that may be negatively impacting the relationship, such as communication problems, trust issues, financial stress, infidelity, or other conflicts. The therapist may use various techniques and approaches to help the couple improve their communication, deepen their understanding of each other’s needs and feelings, and learn new ways of relating to each other.
Couples therapy can be beneficial for couples who are struggling with a variety of issues, from minor conflicts to major relationship problems. It can provide a safe and supportive space for partners to express their concerns, learn new skills and strategies for improving the relationship, and work towards a healthier and more fulfilling partnership.

No, therapists cannot prescribe medication; however, we work closely with a variety of psychiatrists who are able to prescribe and would be happy to refer you to them. Your therapist would also be able to coordinate care with them if you would like – this would entail you signing an ROI (release of information) in session authorizing your therapist to speak with them.
