Individual therapy is a great thing to do for yourself. It allows you to set aside a special time each week to explore aspects of your life that might be improved, and to talk about potentially difficult topics in a safe a confidential environment with someone there to give you 100% of their attention to help figure things out in a gentle, collaborative way. It is a time to focus on yourself — me time, in the truest sense — and is an enriching way to care for yourself.
What issues can be addressed in individual therapy?
- Struggles with depression and/or anxiety;
- dealing with difficult medical situations or decisions;
- making difficult life transitions;
- figuring out one’s role in a relationship problem;
- coping with the end of a relationship;
- preparing for future couple or family work;
- the desire for personal growth or to individuate; or
- a personal problem that seems indefinable.
Lindsey Hoskins and her associates aim to take care of Bethesda MD with Individualized Therapy.
As we explore personal issues during this time, we may also talk about your couple, family, or other relationships, adopting what we call a systemic perspective to explore the ways in which your life is influenced by the contexts in which you are embedded–most notably, your closest relationships.
If you choose, you may transition to couple or family therapy after being in individual therapy for any length of time by inviting loved ones with whom you have important relationships to join you in therapy. You may do this by continuing with the same therapist, or by seeing a second clinician in our practice for the couple or family work. Your therapist will help you decide how to do this in the best and healthiest way.
Please reach out to Hoskins & Associates if you feel you could benefit from individual therapy in Bethesda MD.
