Individual and Family Therapy
Many people describe the process of individual and family therapy as a journey of becoming more self-aware, engaging in self-growth and achieving self actualization. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process between therapist and client, that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life. Therapy can help people confront barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being, and it can also increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, strength, and understanding. Psychotherapy can treat specific mental health conditions such as addiction, anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsions, relationship concerns, stress management, trauma, career ambitions as well as many other conditions that impact daily functioning. Often time’s distress can hide in the form of negative feelings, behaviors, and or sensations we feel in our body and mind. Fanyelle can help identify underlying causes of symptoms and facilitate lifestyle changes, with the aid of specific strategies or techniques. Through individual and family therapy, clients are able to utilize skills to help manage and alleviate stress and or challenges that they will face in the future.
