Individual Therapy...

Therapy is an opportunity to process and work through life's difficult moments without any interruptions, others making the situation about themselves, or giving you unsolicited advice. In an individual therapy session, we collaboratively work together to heal wounds, negative beliefs, fear, heartache and generational patterns that are getting in the way of you becoming who you want to be. Individual therapy is also helpful for life's transitions, as you establish your identity, create new goals, and identify your purpose.  Below is a list of symptoms I treat and modalities I use to do so:

How Does Individual Therapy Work?

Individual therapy can be held in-person at our Heights office or via telehealth as you attend from a private office at work, from your home, in your car, or backyard. The first therapy session is used to get to know one another, reviewing your presenting concerns, symptoms, areas you would like to focus on and establishing goals for therapy. Collaboratively, you and your therapist will discuss what modalities, such as EMDR, Brainspotting, Parts Work, DBT, etc,  are the best fit for you in achieving your goals and layout a plan of how they will be incorporated. This is an important step as it allows us to be intentional and respectful of the time and energy that you are putting into therapy. We want to make sure the high priority items are being addressed and your seeing healing movement taking place in your life. 

Once this step is complete, you and your therapist will begin to explore your areas of concern, searching for similar themes, emotions, patterns, and helping you identify what belief systems, such as "I'm a burden" or "I'm not worthy", are at the root of these distressing situations, as these beliefs are often the driving force behind why we do what we do. 

Here your therapist will begin to incorporate your agreed upon modality to target, challenge, release and heal your negative beliefs.  Like a yarn ball, the two of you will find the thread that slowly leads to the unraveling of all the things, creating clarity and insight, as opposed to being stuck in knots. It is here that you will gain skills to catch and challenge your own "stinking thinking", learn to sit safely with discomfort, extend yourself compassion instead of criticism, and much more. 

Most clients begin to notice change after about 6-8 sessions, but in an effort to be transparent, I encourage my clients to devote 6 months to therapy. This gives us enough time to adequately identify and address the core emotional wounds and build new neural pathways in the brain. Much like it takes time to build a new highway, it also takes time to build new neural pathways, or "highways", in the brain.


How long and how frequent are sessions?

Therapy sessions are typically 50 minutes long, but in some cases can be extended to 80 minutes.

Based upon the information provided in your first session, your therapist will make suggestions on how often to meet based upon your goals, symptoms, modality you are using and your timeline for therapy.  It is encouraged to meet either weekly or every other week at the beginning of therapy, with majority of clients meeting every other week. Clients are able to see progress at both weekly and every other week, but growth is also dependable upon the willingness of the client to  participate in therapy, complete homework and practice techniques between sessions.
