Individual therapy is the process of working with a mental health professional to better understand your self, specific goals, identity, and ways of coping with various stressors.
As your provider, my approach is to ‘meet you where you are at’ to help you navigate your stressors and/or goals while identifying your strengths in the process of treatment.
Each treatment plan is individually tailored and therapy is very much a two-way process. As my client, your involvement and feedback is very important from start to end!
When a loved one is coping with chronic medical illness or memory decline (due to normal aging, dementia, or stroke for example), as a caregiver, it can be very challenging to cope with the emotional distress. Many caregivers may express guilt about feeling distressed caretaking their loved ones. Having completed evidence-based training for caregiver support, my approach is to provide the caregiver with support, coping tools, and resources to improve and/or prevent caregiver emotional burnout.
