Individual counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Individual counseling can help clients deal with many personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, and career changes, etc.
Every relationship has its ups and downs. This can range from basic concerns of stagnation to serious conversations of separation/divorce. Marriage or couples counseling can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds. Counseling can help couples slow down their spiral and reestablish realistic expectations and goals for their relationship.
Family therapy is often sought due to a life change or stress negatively affecting one or all areas of family closeness, family structure or communication style. Common issues addressed in family counseling are parenting concerns, sibling conflict, loss of family members, new members entering the family, or a general change affecting the family system.
Group counseling allows one to find out that they are not alone in their life challenge. This process can increase one’s understanding of the struggles around the topic, but also the variety in the possible solutions available. Typically, group have up to 8 participants and revolve around a common topic like anger management, self-esteem, divorce, domestic violence, recovery from abuse & trauma, and abuse and recovery.
Psychotherapy differs from counseling in that it involves more attention to discovering root causes and re-routing life patterns. It is typically a longer term commitment than regular counseling.
