Individual Counseling

5-4While many problems are best worked out in the context of family or couple’s therapy, sometimes individual sessions are called for. Individual sessions at 5th Street Family Counseling seek to meet individual needs and in a focused way that give our clients an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about their situation.

Whether you are trying to work on yourself, develop healthier habits, become more content, or try to decide where to go from here, we are here for you! We have had experience with a wide variety of issues in individual counseling and are ready to meet with you. We strive to offer a safe, relaxing environment where you can come for a restorative counseling experience.

While we see our clients as individuals, we know that our clients are part of a family. Based on our experience and training, we know that changing part of a family changes other parts, too. We ask questions about this and explore with our clients how best to manage these effects on their family. Our methods help people to gain clarity about their problems and how it affects their family. We then develop better strategies together to manage the effects on their own self as well as their family.

As a practice, we have had experience treating a wide range of issues. Some of these issues include:

  • Trauma
  • Suicidal thoughts and feelings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Adjustment problems
  • Self-harm
  • Eating disorders
