There are many occasions during the course of a person’s lifetime that they may benefit from engaging in Individual Therapy.
Individual therapy is a treatment for mental and emotional conditions including:
- chemical dependency
- bipolar disorder
- eating disorders
- and many more
However, many people also benefit from individual therapy when they are trying to cope with relatively common life stressors. These could include the loss of a loved one, conflict with a significant other, challenges with a child (or a parent), vocational or educational problems, or any other source of distress or challenge.
Finally, many people who engage in individual therapy are quite healthy, yet seeking new understanding of themselves or a situation, an outlet for emotional expression or other aspects of personal growth.

Family therapy can identify and resolve conflicts in a family unit. We help families discuss patterns of communication that they are currently using that may be problematic. Working in therapy to change these patterns of communication can improve the functionality of the unit. Every family has strengths and challenges, using this approach can help build on the strengths and work on the challenges.
Many times family therapy is used in conjunction to individual treatment for children as the family system can need to work out some issues that are keeping them stuck in dysfunctional patterns. We help parents resolve behavioral problems with their children by exploring family dynamics, improving healthy boundaries and reinforcing parenting skills.
In addition to psychotherapy, Life Balance offers medication evaluation and treatment if warranted. Due to known effects of imbalances of brain chemicals, medications can help improve mental illness by providing balance. This often leads to a reduction in symptoms that one may be experiencing. Our provider often works closely with your therapist and medical providers to ensure the best treatment is being delivered.
