Individual psychotherapy is the process of meeting with a licensed therapist, Dr. Deena, with the goal of helping the client overcome problems and change desired behaviors. Clients typically desire to improve their mental health and increase their well-being. Individual therapy allows the therapist and client to focus on each other, building a rapport and working together to solve the client’s issue. However, psychodynamic therapies and related therapies may progress for months or even years, while brief therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy can produce results in just a few sessions.
It is a safe spot to share and discuss things that you choose not to tell others. Individual therapy covers anything from struggles in relationships, broken families, feeling overwhelmed by emotions, addiction, troublesome behaviors, and more.
Dr. Deena has been providing psychotherapy to individuals since 1993. She has been trained in traditional modes of psychotherapy and she has continues to hone her skills and uses the most progressive and current methods. She utilizes eclectic therapeutic techniques after providing a thorough clinical assessment to determine the needs of each individual.
