Individual Therapy in South Florida

Individual therapy is a provocative, exploratory, intriguing process and can even be lighthearted at times. You might think of it as an experience in becoming more seasoned. The more we lean into your life, the more depth and understanding is created . . . and with that comes increased self-awareness, freedom and less managing life on auto-pilot.

My Individual Therapy Approach

As a therapist, I primarily approach our work together in two ways . . .

The first approach, if needed, is a more skills-based approach. We’ll look at parts of life, such as your sleep habits, your self-care, stress management, the way you manage difficult emotions, etc. We’ll work on some tools. We’ll focus on practicing new ways of coping, so that you don’t feel as overwhelmed or out-of-control. Then often my clients will work on shifting into the second therapeutic direction a bit more.

The second individual therapy approach is less linear and more exploratory. We’ll focus more on your life history (the good and the difficult experiences). Together we will see how that history impacts the person you are today: your relationships, your decisions, your strengths, your identity. In this approach we use our therapy relationship as a gauge of how you navigate the world and we work together to increase your understanding of yourself and make the changes you want to make, often related to your relationships with others, in work, in family, in life.

I look forward to diving in with you, helping you figure out what you need and supporting your growth as you move through this world.

I can help you make the change that you deeply desire. Call me at (954) 336-4049 for your free 15-minute phone consultation to find about psychotherapy services in my Plantation or Miami office.
