Individual therapy, also known as psychotherapy, is a collaborate process between us (the therapist) and the client. Individual therapy aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life. We have successfully engaged adolescents and adults in individual therapy and use an eclectic, client centered model to provide clients with support and assist them in implementing the change they seek.
Do we work with couples? Yes we do. Our couples counseling sessions are focused on helping our clients connect with each other while communicating more effectively. If you and your partner keep getting stuck or you are having the same argument over and over again, maybe it's time to try something different.
Adolescent counseling, or teen therapy, helps youth face and address challenging problems. We have found that therapy with adolescents is most effective when they feel comfortable in therapy and are able to use creative methods to express themselves. At Take Root Therapy, one of our specialties is art therapy, and we have found that teens are very receptive to using art to address difficult issues. These issues include risky behaviors, like substance use/abuse, self-harm/self-injury, and unsafe sex.
