Individual Therapy

At All Things New, the initial 1-3 sessions are used to assess what the problem is. These first sessions are usually more structured and include some specific information gathering. During this process, Kristin will discuss with you your reasons for seeking treatment, develop an understanding about your issues, and formulate ideas about how treatment should proceed. Kristin will then work together with you to determine the goals for treatment. Often treatment will include exploring past conflicts in relation to your current concerns in order to make change possible. Kristin will listen and help you identify patterns of thinking, feeling, and interacting that may be contributing to your current struggles. Deeper awareness and new insights stimulate psychological growth and change. Treatment will continue until the troubling symptoms have been reduced or alleviated and you are consistently making use of more adaptive ways of coping with greater insight.
