Individual therapy is the process of working with a skilled clinician to help you reach your goals through a confidential, supportive, and compassionate relationship. As a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience, I will work with you to understand and overcome the obstacles that have stood in the way of achieving happiness and overall wellness. Mindful Wellness, VI engages in individual counseling with adults, children, and adolescents. Sessions are typically weekly or biweekly and are available in person or via teletherapy.
Relationships are hard work, and like cars, they need regular maintenance to keep them running smoothly. Sometimes, you are able to do the necessary maintenance on our own. Other times, if the issues are more intense you may need to bring your relationship to a couples therapist so that they may assist us. Couples therapy can be beneficial for all types of intimate relationships regardless of sexual orientation or marital status. Throughout my career, I have assisted couples with a variety of different challenges including, but not limited to: communication issues, sexual issues, conflicts with parenting or blended families, substance use, anger, infidelity, or loss of a child. Sessions available in person or via teletherapy.
Group therapy involves a clinician working with several people at the same time. Groups are often designed to target a particular challenge or issue. Groups can meet weekly for a set number of sessions or are ongoing and open ended. Members receive support and encouragement from each other through a shared therapeutic process. Learning about other people’s perspectives provides a support network and a sounding board. Understanding that others are going through similar circumstances helps alleviate feelings of loneliness. While group therapy may seem intimidating at first, group members are often surprised at how rewarding the experience can be.
Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy used primarily with children. Play is the universal language through which children learn and communicate. Children are not always able to verbalize and articulate their inner thoughts and feelings. In play therapy, the therapist strategically utilizes manipulatives and toys to help the child work through emotional stress or trauma and engage the child to “play out” their emotions and concerns.
