During individual sessions, I meet with clients one-on-one. We devise a personalized treatment plan that is unique to your needs, goals, and personality. Individual therapy is a powerful way to process experiences and deepen personal understanding . Individual therapy is not always comfortable and presents new challenges. The therapeutic relationship is an essential component to provide a safe, nurturing environment to support this growth.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
Children and adolescents are a special type of client - they should not be viewed simply as small adults. They are in certain developmental stages that are important to consider when determining treatment. Hands-on activities tend to be more effective in child and adolescent therapy as compared to traditional talk therapy. Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's therapy for continuity between home and the therapy office.
Group therapy is a safe place to receive support and validation for your personal experiences from others who have been there. Providing support to others can be a meaningful component of your therapy. Research shows that supporting others can increase our sense of confidence, self-esteem, and sense of value; this can be a meaningful aspect to your treatment. Therapy groups at KB Counseling are tailored towards different age groups and skill development.
