Individual Therapy

What is individual therapy?

According to, individual therapy is “a collaborative process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life.” In my office, individual therapy usually consists of a 50-minute session where we explore your target concern. Depending on what this concern is, therapy may consist mostly of talking and processing. Other concerns may be better treated with art therapy, EMDR, mindfulness, homework or worksheets, experiential activities, or any number of other therapeutic interventions. The beautiful thing about therapy is that the options are endless. Therapy is a multi-faceted experience that can be truly transformative.

Why talk to someone?

People come to therapy for a variety of reasons – major life changes, grief and loss, relationship concerns, trauma, anxiety, depression, stress… Sometimes people come to therapy simply because they want to deepen their understanding of themselves and others.
