Individual Therapy is a collaborative process at Pacific Pain & Wellness Group, involving you and your psychologist or therapist collaborating to define the goals of the therapy and the means to achieve those goals. Therapy can be goal-driven and focused on addressing specific problem, like depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD), anxiety, or obsessive compulsive disorder. Therapy can also facilitate self-exploration to better understand recurring negative patterns in your life such as lack of self-confidence or low self-esteem, under-performing at school or work, or relationship problems.

Reaching Goals Through Individual Therapy

At Pacific Pain & Wellness Group, we provide a safe, confidential space in which you and your therapist can examine significant life events and relationships, insecurities and fears, and goals and aspirations. With insight and understanding, you will be better able to make decisions that align with your values, which will in turn provide you with more confidence, peace of mind, and a meaningful sense of direction. Your therapist will also help you to:

  • Identify previous or develop new coping strategies
  • Rearrange your expectations and priorities to avoid unnecessary stress
  • Focus on meaningful pursuits
  • Identify personal strengths during psychological crisis
