Individual counseling is what we call it when it is just you and the Counselor and the reason for counseling doesn't fall into a specific treatment type. Some of the specific treatment types would include Couples Counseling, Play Therapy, or Career Counseling as these are all very specific types of treatment. If the issue that you are struggling with involves anger, a relationship with someone that can't or won't come to counseling with you, a severe psychological disturbance, stress, depressing thoughts, or anything else that you might be dealing with, we are here to help.
There are some things that counseling will not do.
Just in case you were wondering, here are a few of those things:
- Tell you what to do (though we may make recommendations)
- Prescribe medication (but we will help monitor how any medications affect you)
- Do the work for you (without you, there's no change in you)
- Make changes in people not in session (although changes in you will affect them)
