A common myth that is assumed by many when they hear my credentials (marriage and family therapist) is that I don’t work with individuals. Over half of my training and clinical work has been with individuals. Just like with couples counseling, in individual counseling, my purpose is to help you reach your goals. Whether that be to process life events, work on coping strategies, or learning to live with and overcome a mental health condition.
I have experience working with kids, adolescents and adults. I’ve spent a lot of time practicing with adolescents and adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self esteem issues, postpartum depression, pregnancy loss, and suicidal ideations. Sometimes life stressors occur, bringing on some of these issues, other times we’ve been dealing with them for years. Either way, change is possible.
What to expect:
With individual clients, we typically meet individually. During the intake session, it is at times helpful to have your partner, roommate, or guardian come in and share their perspective of what’s been going on. If you are under the age of 18, I ask that your guardian attend with you during the intake session to sign paperwork and understand the confidentiality of counseling.
