Individual therapy is a joint process between you and your therapist that allows you to work through your mental health struggles in a calm, safe, and confidential setting. Also known as individual psychotherapy, this kind of treatment is a unique opportunity to work one-on-one with your therapist to develop healthy coping skills for the long term. The beauty of individual therapy is the opportunity for flexibility, as treatment plans can be easily structured around your needs and background.

LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy
Oftentimes, as someone who is LGBTQ+ you will have experiences that are different from most people, for better and for worse. It can be difficult to know how to handle some of these situations which is where an experienced LGBTQIA+ therapist comes in. Between societal stigmas and discrimination, an experienced LGBTQ therapist can help you undo the aloneness of navigating these challenging waters. A gay therapist might be helpful too as they can have greater insight into some of these shared experiences.
Cognitive Processing Therapy
Similar to CBT, cognitive processing therapy is an evidence-based treatment that helps teach patients new, more positive ways of addressing trauma-related beliefs and emotions.
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)
is an evidence-based psychotherapeutic treatment used to alleviate distress from PTSD and traumatic memories. Hence, EMDR transforms the way the brain processes information. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy has patients focus on their trauma while being visually stimulated. Thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations are activated while the stimulation helps reduce the emotion and physiological reaction to the trauma. Negative thoughts associated with the trauma can then be reprocessed with more empowered, positive and accepting beliefs.
