what is individual therapy?
Individual therapy is a one on one session to work through personal issues in a confidential setting.
At the initial appointment,
the therapist begins to explore your best hopes for a successful therapy experience.
You will develop a plan which is the "roadmap" for what to expect from therapy. Each session
is tailored to your specific
“here and now” needs and connected to your identified plan.
30, 60, 90 minute sessions are available based
on the focus of work.
A typical therapy session is 60 minutes
Sessions are held
in person (Tustin or Newport Beach, CA)
or virtually within California.
