Psychotherapy for Adults, Teens & Families
The types of discomfort in your life may include not liking or feeling good about yourself; difficulties in relationships with others; feelings of loneliness, alienation or marginalization; childhood or recent traumas or losses; self-defeating behaviors; or chronic sadness and doubt.
In therapy, we will work together to find what works best for you, which may be gaining a balance between finding ways to alleviate or manage symptoms (such as symptoms of depression and anxiety) but also working to address what’s underlying the symptoms (stress, family of origin, relationships, biological factors, etc.).
Typically, therapy entails weekly sessions that last 50 minutes, however, some people find it helpful to see a therapist more than once a week as it can provide additional support as well as allow a more in-depth exploration of the issues you are dealing with. While some issues can be resolved in a short amount of time, therapy or counseling that takes a well-rounded or depth approach usually requires a longer period of time.
Individual therapy with me focuses on increasing awareness of your habitual patterns, learning to accept yourself as you are, and figuring out how to be more present in each moment.
If you would like to learn more about my approach to individual therapy or to schedule an introductory session please call me at (510) 898 - 6553 or email me at Jennaroat@gmail.com.
