In therapy, we help couples, individuals, parents and families learn skills that can help them move in the direction of their values, while making room for uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. Individual therapy involves the building of a relationship between the psychologist and the person in therapy. The psychologist often works with the individual, couple or family to foster change or improve their quality of life. Therapy can assist people with issues that are difficult to deal with on their own, such as work and career issues, stress management, conflict resolution and anxiety. It can help people recognize the behaviors or emotions that prevent them from living a value-driven and committed life.
