Individual counseling, psychotherapy, or talk therapy is a collaborative process between counselor and client that aims to promote change and improve quality of life. At Johns Creek and Alpharetta Counseling, our therapists are trained to offer DBT- Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and CBT- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to work with mental illness, addiction, heal from the past, or interpersonal growth. Other mediums are used to access the emotion that words cannot reach such as art therapy, sand tray therapy, writing, relaxation techniques, music, and stress management. Individual counseling offers a space of emotional safety allowing healing to occur.
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, love, courage, and peace. Many people enjoy the therapeutic journey and they may pursue ongoing psychotherapy as a means of self-growth and self-actualization. Whether you are mourning a loss, feeling lost and need direction, having difficulty in a relationship, a safe relationship with a counselor can help you on your journey. Our therapists at JCAC provide and hold a space for clients to feel at ease, emotionally safe, and understood. From this basis, therapeutic skills are utilized to assist clients in exploring and working through distress and increase balance in their lives.
