Individual counseling is a one on one collaborative process of skilled, creative problem solving. Psychotherapy is the process of identifying and incrementally healing the root causes of recurrent life struggles. Counseling and psychotherapy work hand in glove.
All meaningful counseling and psychotherapy happens within the context of the partnership and alliance between counselor and client. The experience of building trust – of knowing and being known by another person – is the foundation of the counseling/psychotherapeutic process. As you teach me who you are, you are also teaching yourself. Together, we decide where we go from there.
Most individual clients come to therapy once a week for a 45 -50 minute session. Longer sessions and sessions meeting either more or less frequently may be indicated based on individual need. “What’s the difference between counseling & psychotherapy?”
