Individual Counseling

ask yourself

Is what you’re doing today getting you to where you want to be tomorrow?

Individual Therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.

At SALT you will experience individual therapy that encourages you to explore your feelings and beliefs, work through challenging or influential memories, gain a better sense of self, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.

let’s dig in

Why is emotion work important in individual therapy?

The reasons that prompt an individual to seek out therapy are always different. However, at some point during exploration, the correlation between the person’s ability to self-regulate their emotions and simultaneously manage depression, anxiety, stress or interpersonal conflict is revealed.

If you wonder how well you manage your emotions, ask yourself “When was the last time I was able to feel emotionally vulnerable without lashing out at myself or someone else?”. *side note* Lashing out can come in many forms that include criticism, negative self-talk, blame, obsessive worry and/or verbal aggression.

“Emotional regulation refers to the process by which individuals influence which emotions they have, when they have them, and how they experience and express their feelings. Emotional regulation can be automatic or controlled, conscious or unconscious, and may have effects at one or more points in the emotion producing process.”(Gross, 1998, p. 275).
