Individual Therapy for Children
Sometimes our children need extra support in figuring out how to handle problems that they can’t quite cope with on their own. Parents and guardians are vital resources for children, but having an outside resource to connect with and to work with them through challenges that affect how they feel and act, can provide an additional layer of support for their development.
Our therapists are skilled in play-therapy and art-therapy techniques that will engage your child in a one-on-one manner in order to help them focus on building important skills and working through challenging processes. Our therapists will keep you informed throughout their work with your child and as the parent/guardian, the therapist may request to schedule separate sessions to review ideas for how to help your child at home.
Individual Therapy for Teens
The teenage years are filled with challenges. They stem from building independence while finding a healthy balance between seeking relationships with family members and developing autonomy. Navigating mental health challenges, maintaining a good parent-child relationship, relationships with friends or significant others, academic stress, and managing substance use are only a few of the difficult tasks that are associated with the teenage years. Therefore, it can often be very helpful for your child to connect with an outside resource with which he or she can build a trusting relationship.
At Spot to Talk we are committed to building a supportive and non-judgmental relationship with your child to provide him/her with a safe space where they can communicate about the challenges they are experiencing. This unique confidential relationship that our therapists have the honor of building with your child, can provide the one-on-one environment needed for your child to honestly discuss the challenges they are facing and allow them to increase the skills needed to successfully navigate the teen years. While the information shared in these sessions is primarily confidential, our therapists will have routine communication with you and are always available for additional family therapy sessions as needed.
Individual Therapy for Adults
Individual therapy involves one-on-one time between you and your therapist in a safe environment that provides a chance for connection. During your individual sessions, you can expect to be able to share information with your therapist in a non-judgmental space and a spot where you can safely be yourself. Your one-on-one sessions with your therapist might include time spent discussing the challenges you have experienced and the goals you would like to accomplish. Individual therapy can be helpful in overcoming obstacles in your life and can increase positive feelings including self-esteem. During the times spent with your therapist, typically over several sessions, you will learn skills for managing difficult situations, how to make healthy decisions, and determining the steps you need to take to reach your goals.
Additional Therapy Options
Family therapy can provide a safe space to communicate challenges that not only affect us as an individual, but also impact the family system as a whole.
Group therapy is a great way for your child to connect with, and learn from a small group of individuals who are experiencing similar challenges.
Crisis Consultation can be helpful if your child is experiencing significant emotional distress without actually being in a physically dangerous situation.
