Adult Psychotherapy

Adults often seek psychotherapeutic treatment when life presents them and their loved ones with situations or experiences that were unplanned, unwanted, and highly intrusive. Relationship changes, accidents, life transitions, family turmoil, and illness are some of the experiences that can be overwhelming and send a person into a place of despair. In addition, supportive communal structures in our society no longer are equipped to sufficiently assist with personal support. 

After the initial crisis is contained, a person may begin to ask deeper questions related to the experience of being and identity: “Is this all there is in life?" - “Who am I after all?” - “What do I want to do with my life?” These questions and more can then lead a person or couple to begin the journey of psychotherapy and the exploration of the inner core “self” within each of us.

Through individual psychotherapy therapy a person can begin exploring how to experience satisfying and fulfilling relationships. This process is facilitated best in an attentive, empathic, caring, and non-judgmental, environment. With a solid connection in place the opportunity for change is present and new possibilities begin to surface.

Women and men experience relationships, partnerships, and marriage differently. A solid understanding regarding the dynamics of each of these situations can assist in working through conflicts and support individual choices for each person, while preserving the commitment to the relationship. With change possible, hope is restored and the individual journey moves forward.
