Individual psychotherapy provides clients with customized strategies to quickly address time-urgent problems. Longer term issues are also addressed with cognitive behavioral therapy and other appropriate techniques. This approach aims to create long-lasting improvement by teaching clients techniques to manage existing issues as well as to navigate future challenges on their own. Clients will capitalize on existing strengths, while learning new coping skills to overcome challenges and increase their satisfaction with life.
Couples meet with a psychotherapist to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each individual and how this interaction contributes to relationship problems, as well as the positive aspects of the relationship.

Couples therapy has been shown to not only improve satisfaction with relationships, but also to alleviate symptoms associated with depression and anxiety.
