INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES

Times of transition and uncertainty, create many challenges within oneself as well as externally within the environment. Individuals are constantly bombarded with internal and external pressures that impact some or all facets of their lives. Navigating the ups and downs of their relationships, trying to find a work/life balance, understanding and managing mental health issues, and trying to navigate family dynamics are just some of the complexities that individuals are faced with on a daily basis.

 

The adolescent stage can be very overwhelming and confusing for family members, especially parents who are desperately trying to support their adolescent and adult children.​ Family sessions allow members to explore difficult topics of conversation in a more open manner in order to develop new perspectives and help family members reconnect. Addressing family dynamics and recognizing that the family is a system allows everyone to bring awareness to their own contribution to a family struggle, develop compassion and empathy, and work together to create new solutions. ​

My work has taught me that although challenging times can create periods of upheaval in an individual's life, they can also be periods of immense growth, positive transformation, and resiliency. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to gain a better understanding of these issues and address these barriers currently standing in the way of change and progress. 

Common issues include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety (panic attacks, OCD) 

  • Anger

  • Stress

  • Trauma (abuse, sexual assault)

  • Low Self-esteem

  • School/work difficulties
