Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is great for people that are new to therapy services, introverted, or for persons that like privacy since group psychotherapy can never be guaranteed as being completely confidential considering it's transient members. The focus on most individual sessions usually includes communication skills, increasing awareness of your triggers and reactions, clinical assessment, motivational interviewing for change, symptom management, self-control strategies, refraining your current situations, case management, accurate use of empathy, crisis counseling, self-compassion, and general psychoeducation on various mental health conditions and associated treatments.
