Individual Therapy

Sometimes we are faced with challenges that can leave us feeling stuck and overwhelmed. We keep thinking and thinking about what troubles us without making any real progress. Figuring out what to do next can be a overwhelming and exhausting process.  Individual therapy can help you make a change.

Hi, I’m Whitney and I help people break free from the actions and beliefs that are hurting them and their relationships. We will work together to create new thoughts and habits that make life more manageable and enjoyable.

Depending on your specific needs, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or long-term, to deal with more difficult patterns or personal development. You are always in control of your therapeutic process and can choose to continue or end your sessions at any time.

Here are some individuals I tend to work with:

Individuals in Substance Abuse Recovery 

Individual therapy is an integral part of any relapse prevention plan. I work with clients to continue the progress they’ve made at a treatment center or following medical detox. We will continue working on your relapse prevention plan, triggers, and coping skills to ensure that long term sobriety is possible. Clients will achieve balance, repair relationships, build self esteem, and create a positive future. Individual therapy is an excellent addition to AA meetings, SMART recovery, or other relapse prevention groups. 

Individuals with Chronic Health Conditions and Chronic Pain

Receiving a new diagnosis can be terrifying. Through individual counseling, we will work together and adapt to the circumstances of your diagnosis, develop acceptance, create new coping skills, and adjust to your new normal. Individual therapy for chronic health conditions can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression associated with the illness and new changes.

Individual Therapy for Caregivers 

Caring for someone with an illness is associated with higher rates of anxiety, stress, and depression. Individual therapy provides you with a space to take care of you. We will work together to promote your individual well being and manage stress more effectively.

Individual Therapy for Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families 

Children of alcoholics and dysfunctional families carry a unique burden. Clients work with Whitney to process past trauma and evaluate strained strained relationships to create a new, fulfilling future.

Everyone Else: I work with people that are dealing with depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and that want better relationships. If you are not sure if I can help, send me an email, I’d love to talk: whitney@collabcounseling.com
