Individual Therapy provides support for overcoming personal challenges. You and your therapist work together to define your goals and work toward them. It’s different from relational therapy (therapy that works with relationships like romantic partners, families, and friendships) because it’s just you and the therapist working together. However, it is similar in that the therapist still focuses on helping you have happier, more fulfilling connections in your life. Understanding family patterns and your past experiences can help us understand your thoughts, feelings, values, and behaviors now.
