Individual

Counseling

experiencing growth during challenging times or in times of personal inquiry. Individual counseling can assist one in exploring personal topics in their lives such as life transitions, healing past traumas, gaining emotional life skills, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, addictive behaviors, relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, career changes etc

Group

Counseling

Group counseling allows one to interact with others who are dealing with similar issues and to create a group of support. The group generally allows for its members to realize that their experience is not completely uncommon and to gain relief from the isolation of their struggle. It, also, is an incredible resource for hive mind to help each other solve problems. Typically, groups have up to eight participants, one or two group leaders, and revolve around a common topic like: self-esteem, divorce, domestic violence, sexuality, grief, recovery from abuse and trauma, and substance abuse and recovery. There may, also, be groups that help with skills such as boundary setting, parenting, or communication.
