Our approach to individual therapy is one of unconditional positive regard for the person seeking help. We strive to be objective and nonjudgmental and encourage self-disclosure to create an atmosphere where self-examination leads curiosity and natural exploration. Analyzing and discussing a person’s ideas and feedback brings clarity to ambiguous or unclear ideas.
Helping a person reflect on their own reactions and thoughts enables better understanding of a problem and what needs to change, and with the help of our therapists, is possible. Understanding the role of early family influences plays a significant role for many people in uncovering the reasons behind beliefs and behaviors. When a belief is brought to the conscious level, an opportunity emerges to decide if it is still useful or relevant. We can help you uncover those beliefs and begin to heal.
Clarifying Beliefs and Perceptions
A barrier for many people is that they don’t always know what they want or why they believe in certain things. Helping a person clarify their beliefs and perceptions enables people to untangle problems and develop a clear focus, which leads to overall wellness.
The value of therapist feedback is empowering because it gives a person a way to identify his or her own ideas and develop a plan to change in a supportive environment. Our therapists avoid confrontation and heavy-handed influence so that our clients feel what they want for themselves and not adjust to or follow the therapist’s imperative.
Don’t Just Survive, Thrive
If you are dealing with mental health symptoms, relationship problems or struggling with addiction, then relief is important. It is nearly impossible to experience long-term success beyond quick relief without addressing important changes in habits. We offer a holistic approach to the change process by being reflective about things you have tried while offering new ideas that could bring about a fundamental shift in focus and intention.
Encouraging mindfulness, positive affirmations, increasing self-control, strengthening one’s desire to change, developing a plan for the future and feeling understood by the therapist increases willingness to try new things. When a person becomes willing to change, they can move on to trusting and receiving wellness in their lives which can lead to a thriving life.
