Individual therapy can be used to treat a myriad of concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression, and concerns about everyday life. When concerns begin to feel as though they are impacting your daily life it might be a good time to seek out the services of a licensed therapist. Seeking the help of a licensed therapist does not mean you are unable to care for yourself. Individuals seek out the help of therapists for many reasons.

Therapy comes in many forms and should be a collaborative effort between the client and the therapist. This collaboration should include the areas that will be addressed, the approach used to address these areas, the approach to treatment, as well as the length of treatment and the frequency of sessions.  Eastern Suffolk Counseling employs an approach that best suits each client as an individual.
