Individual therapy helps you take control of your life by learning about your moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviors.

Not everyone who benefits from therapy is diagnosed with a mental illness. Therapy can help with a number of life stressors and conflicts that can affect anyone. For example, it may help you:
  • Resolve conflicts with your partner or someone else in your life
  • Relieve anxiety or stress due to work or other situations
  • Cope with major life changes
  • Learn to manage unhealthy reactions 
  • Come to terms with a chronic or serious health problems
  • Recover from physical or sexual abuse or witnessing violence
  • Cope with sexual problems
  • Sleep better, if you have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep
Therapy can be as effective as medications such as antidepressants. However, depending on your specific situation, therapy alone may not be enough to ease the symptoms of a mental health condition. You may also need medications or other treatments.

Sometimes it's necessary to hold a family session or couples session to help you resolve personal issues. Dr. Christine Dickson will work with you to determine when a family session or couples session would be benficial.
