What is Individual Therapy?

Individual therapy (psychotherapy or counseling) is a process through which you work one-on-one with our trained therapists in a safe, caring, confidential environment.

 

You will explore your feelings, beliefs, or behaviors; work through challenging or influential memories; and identify aspects of your life that you would like to change. We will assist you in getting a better understanding of yourself and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.

Individuals  seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons ranging from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-awareness. We may work together for a few sessions or as long as needed depending on your unique needs and personal goals for therapy.

Couples therapy is used to treat relationship distress for both individuals and couples.

The purpose of couples therapy is to restore a better level of functioning in couples who experience relationship issues. The reasons for distress may come from a wide spectrum of issues. These issues may include poor communication skills or incompatibility.

 

The focus of couples therapy is to identify the source of dissatisfaction and distress in the relationship. Treatment objectives include improving or alleviating the presenting symptoms and restoring the relationship to a better and healthier level of functioning. Couples therapy may assist persons who are having complaints of intimacy, sexual and communication difficulties.

 

Family therapy can help you improve troubled relationships with your partner, children or other family members. You may address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance use or a mental illness on the entire family.

 

You may pursue family therapy along with other types of mental health treatment, especially if one of you has a mental illness or substance use issues that also requires additional therapy or rehabilitation treatment.

 

For example:

  • Family therapy can help family members cope if a relative has a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia — but the person who has schizophrenia should continue with his or her individualized treatment plan.

  • In the case of substance use, the family may attend family therapy while the person who is using substances participates in individual or residential treatment. Sometimes the family may participate in family therapy even if the person with substance use hasn't sought out his/her own treatment.

 

Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring you closer to each other.

 

 

 

We provide professional child and adolescent counseling to help your son or daughter navigate through these rough times. During the child and adolescent years, young people may experience anxiety and apprehension. Mental development, emotional changes and physical growth can be challenging for the entire family.

Children, just like adults, experience stress during their life journey. Stressors for children may include school and family issues. A school related stress experience may include excessive or difficult homework, test anxiety, peer pressure, bullying and learning difficulties. A family related stress experience may include parental arguing, divorce, relocating, a new sibling or a major illness.

Children can participate in and benefit from counseling. Counseling can help children and adolescents learn how to identify causes of their distress, develop their skills in asking for help and expressing emotions, and improve their problem-solving abilities.

Our approach to child and adolescent counseling considers the physical, social, economic and mental environment. We strive to identify and develop strengths and growth areas, while reducing anxiety and increasing coping skills. We may incorporate others in the child and adolescent counseling process depending on the nature of the problem and the child’s environmental resources. Support may come from family members, parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, and caregivers.

Adolescents enter counseling for a variety of reasons. While it is true that adolescents seldom enter counseling on their own, adolescents are not really any more reluctant to seek help than their parents. Adolescents sometimes cannot see what they are doing to make their life more difficult because they have not had sufficient life experience. Life experience, in sufficient quantities, helps us see what is not working, even if we do not always know how to fix it. Most adolescents do not have these experiences, so they assume the problem must be outside of themselves and they expect everyone else to adjust.

 

Our Creative Solutions adolescent counselors have many years of experience working specifically with the psychological, mental and emotional changes of adolescences and related adolescent issues. Consider getting your pre-teen or teenager the help they deserve so they can learn new problem solving skills that can serve them for the rest of their lives.

 

Substance use disorders are one of the most complex areas of mental health. 

If you want to develop a strong healthy lifestyle, you will find Creative Solutions' Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor to be supportive in overcoming your dependency.

 

Our trained therapist can help you set achievable and empowering short-term goals as you work to develop a strong recovery. Once sobriety is achieved, adaptive skills can be developed as you work to regain your physical and emotional health. You and your therapist can begin to explore the source or cause of your substance use as you begin to utilize your new coping strategies.

 

Together, we can set long-term goals that may include rebuilding damaged relationships and developing strong support systems.
