Therapy Services In Saint Paul
When you’re considering therapy or counseling services, it’s important to begin the process by reviewing what types of service you may need. There is more than one form of therapy, including traditional one-on-one sessions, couples and family therapy, group counseling, psychological assessment, and more. Not all practices offer every form of treatment. In my Saint Paul clinic, Venture Therapy, I provide a range of therapy services, but my main areas of focus are individual, couples, and family therapy and premarital counseling. If you are ready to find healing in the areas of your life that feel broken and want to move toward experiencing a more full and free life, contact Venture Therapy to get started today.
Individual therapy provides you with time and a safe space to explore areas where you feel stuck. People often tell me how great it feels to be able to talk through their struggles with someone who not only understands them, but also has a valuable outside perspective. If you’re trying to understand and address trauma, depression, anxiety, difficult relationships, or any of life’s daily challenges, working with me to discuss and address your challenges during individual therapy can give you skills and empower you to face these concerns in order to lead a freer life.
During couples therapy, we can help you and your partner to better understand each other, address conflicts effectively, and develop the skills to handle adversity in partnership. The goal of couples therapy is to help you and your partner feel connected, safe, and supported.
Family therapy can be very beneficial if your family is struggling with a breakdown in communication or overcoming other challenges. While many people think of this as a big group session with the whole family present (and it can be), these therapy sessions address issues within the group, but I may also recommend individual sessions, mediated discussion between specific family members, and other forms of therapy to assist your family.
The American Psychological Association estimates that between 40 and 50% of marriages end in divorce. Other research studies put that number even higher. Before entering into marriage, it’s important to take the time to ensure you and your partner are on the same page and share life goals that you can work toward together, handling all the challenges and conflicts that might arise. During premarital counseling, you will have the opportunity to collect a number of tools for your relationship toolbox that will help you to acknowledge, validate, and support each other throughout your lives together.
