Individual therapy provides a safe and confidential space to explore yourself and work through challenges. Although never a simple process, it is a rewarding one.
In individual therapy, we collaborate to develop the skills you need to face life’s daily challenges. These challenges may include trauma, depression, anxiety, injury related challenges.
Relationships can be hard work, but they are also a source of fulfillment and meaning. Couples therapy helps couples work on pre-existing challenges, develop healthy communication strategies, and restore physical and emotional intimacy. Couples therapy can also support couples in a healthy separation/divorce process.
Family therapy can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate.
The treatment plan will depend on your family’s specific situation. These sessions can teach skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times.
Play therapy is a specific therapeutic technique that uses a child’s natural means of expression, play, to assist them in coping with emotional stress or trauma. It is most effective for children aged 4 and above. These children may be struggling with concerns such as separation anxiety, bullying, low self-confidence, enuresis, parental divorce, abuse or trauma.
