Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Marital therapy works with couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair the harmful or negative aspect of the relationship.
Family Systems views problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. I'll help each individual member understand how their childhood family operates, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family.
