Individual therapy is a way for people to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental and healing therapeutic setting. Some people aspire toward growth and development, others seek to learn ways to cope with ongoing stressors, and many search for ways to achieve mind-body connectedness. Oftentimes, past experiences provide the key to understanding current behaviors and overall psychological health. Psychological insight not only helps one grow as an individual, but also serves to improve interactions and relationships with others.
Dr. DiGiorgio is an expert in many modalities of individual therapy from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Dialectical Behavior Therapy. However, you might ask what would be the point of individual therapy with Kara Smith who is a marriage and family therapist? Well, we have an answer: what brings people into therapy more often than not has to do with relationships. We know what makes a relationship work and we know what makes them fail. Whether you are challenged by a familial relationship or a romantic one, let me help guide you in how to make them strong! Believe it or not, people can change the dynamic in their marriages and in their families by making changes in their own behavior. However, even if the people in your lives do not want to change along with you, individual therapy can help you figure out how to be content and, sometimes, help guide you when making difficult choices or initiating change.
