Individual Counseling is an opportunity to meet with a Counselor at You Are Happiness Counseling one-on-one within a safe and confidential environment to examine issues within the privacy of a psychotherapeutic session. Individual counseling provides a healing environment to discuss relationship issues, childhood issues, or problems surfacing due to employment, career or personal life changes.

When problems are directly related to relationships — i.e., intimate partners, parents and children, or friends — individual sessions with a Counselor at You Are happiness can serve as a “safe space” to examine and contemplate feelings and issues. All “individual” problems take place within a wider sphere that impact — and are impacted by relationships with others. Relationship, Marriage, and Family Therapy is also available.

Who can benefit?

Individual Counseling at You are Happiness is available for adults, adolescents and children.  Individual Counseling provides a safe environment to discuss identity issues, concerns about one’s intimate relationship, or feelings of depression or anxiety. During times of stress, we sometimes misuse or abuse alcohol or other substances, find ourselves overeating or engaging in other destructive behaviors. Learning healthier coping strategies and facing confusing and often conflicting feelings can be positive steps towards living a healthier and happier life.

Individual Counseling also provides a safe environment to deal with painful issues that we sometimes try to avoid — issues involving sexual, emotional or physical abuse in childhood or adulthood, dysfunctional family issues, or deep depressions and suicidal feelings. Finding a safe space to address these concerns can break the isolation and begin a process of healing.
