Individual Adult Therapy
A beautiful gift from you to you.
A beautiful gift from you to you.
There are many different reasons that you might want to start seeing a therapist-to deal with anxiety or depression (or both), cope with major life transitions or events, to gain self-knowledge and awareness.
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed or unhappy, stuck on the same problem that comes up over and over again, or if you feel a general need for some extra support, then it’s probably a good time to speak with us.
Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, but it becomes a problem when it gets in the way of living the life you want to live.
Let’s get one thing straight-going to therapy does not make you crazy. You’re not broken. There’s nothing inherently wrong with you. Life can be hard. Things change. Feelings get hurt. Relationships end. Life happens.
Think of it this way: we do not judge people with a broken arm for seeking medical attention and physical therapy, do we?
Shouldn’t we treat our mental health the same? The healthiest people in your life just may have gone to (or are going) to a therapist. We could all use extra support sometimes.
Get the support you need!
According to Mental Health in America, approximately 18% of people living in California are experiencing distress severe enough to meet the criteria for a mental health disorder and almost 65% aren’t getting treatment. These number don’t even include folks who are stressed or struggling with relationships. Our goal is to help you get the support you need.
Our team of trained mental health professionals from True North Psychology, PC can help you:
Develop fresh insights about your life (and patterns)
We can help you learn techniques to manage patterns of anxiety, depression, self-criticism, and other unhelpful thoughts, emotions and patterns.
Plus, when you talk about what you’re feeling and thinking with a neutral person who has no personal attachment to the outcome, you might gain new insights on old issues, helping uncover underlying causes for what you’re feeling.
Learn tools to handle emotions and problems
Sometimes, for various reasons, there are areas of life that feel harder to handle than others. Have you ever come across a problem or emotion over and over and feel each time like you just don’t know what to do or how to handle it?
We can help you develop tools to deal with those situations that feel overwhelming or just plain bad.
When you feel bad day in and day out, your relationships suffer. You might feel like you don’t want to bring other people down, so you stay away from, or don’t talk to, loved ones. You might lash out when your anxiety flares, saying or doing things that hurt your loved ones. Friends and family might start to feel rejected or hurt and pull away.
Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or helpless, is hard on all types of relationships. When you start working with us, we can help you feel better and improve your relationships with others.
Knowing you’ve decided to actively do something about the things that have you stick might be one of the best things about starting individual therapy.
When you’re in the throes of anxiety or depression, it can feel like life and everyone you know is passing you by. When you start working with one of our fantastic clinicians, you can know you’re taking steps toward the life you want to live.
We want to get to know you, what makes you tick and what’s got you stuck. We’re here to support you as you move through the tough stuff of life.
