In individual therapy, the focus of treatment is on individual growth and well-being. As a relationally oriented therapist, I help individual clients navigate the challenges of their interpersonal relationships and the impact that these relationships have on their individual functioning. Individual therapy can help you: 

- increase self-understanding

- increase relational self-awareness (what you bring to your relationships)

- increase understanding of the impact of your family of origin on your life

- recognize patterns of behavior and impact on self and others

- develop individual skills to enhance relationships (couple, family, in-laws, children etc...)

- improve communication skills 

- evaluate and make decisions about your relationships 

- cope with and move on following divorce 

- adapt to life stage transitions (i.e. transition to parenthood, empty nest, retirement) 

- develop skills to cope with anxiety and depression

- address sexual concerns (see sex therapy for more details)
