No matter how much you prepare or how ambitious your dreams are, sometimes you find yourself struggling, feeling trapped, and thinking nothing will ever get better.
Maybe you are working yourself to the bone to keep up with school or a highly stressful job. You might have started a new business that fills you with crippling fear and self-doubt—Will it ever work? Am I good enough to do this? What if I fail?
You may have endured a painful experience that is very difficult to think or talk about. Or perhaps you feel out of control and have fabricated a “secret life” to carry on with your impulses, which alienates you from the people you love.
If you feel stuck, lonely, or powerless, please know you are not alone. It CAN get better.
My name is Christian Holmes, and I’m an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT) Registration #120391 under the supervision of Mark W. Baker, Ph.D. Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #MFT19289. I’m dedicated to helping teens and adults reach their health, wealth, relationship, and higher-purpose.
As someone who has experienced a traumatic childhood and navigated clinical depression and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), I understand where you are coming from. I’ve been in that scary and lonesome place where light, joy, and safety feel unattainable.
And, I know what it’s like to overcome. I want you to have that, too.
Contact me to book a consultation or schedule an individual therapy session today.
What Is Individual Therapy?
Individual therapy, also known as counseling or talk therapy, is the standard treatment for mental health challenges. You will meet with a trained therapist like me to talk about your worries, learn about your strengths and opportunities, and gain practical strategies for your everyday life.
While therapy can help you address psychological issues, it also opens the door to your inner self and offers tools to grow and succeed.
Do You Need Individual Therapy?
You don’t have to be suffering to enjoy the many benefits of individual therapy. However, this treatment can be particularly helpful for a wide range of behavioral and emotional problems, such as:
- Anxiety and stress
- Grief and loss
- Life transitions (e.g., graduation, marriage, new business)
- Low self-esteem or self-worth
- Relationship difficulties
- School, career, or workplace issues
- Suicidal or dangerous thoughts and behaviors
- Trauma and posttraumatic stress (PTSD)
- Trouble sleeping or restlessness
- Unhealthy use of porn, or video games
*Your safety is my top priority. If you experience domestic abuse, contact the domestic violence hotline (1.800.799.7233) or visit https://www.thehotline.org/.
I understand seeking help is no easy task. But sometimes, the most challenging and frightening things are precisely the ones that bring the most powerful transformation. And therapy is no exception.
If you are battling with any of these difficulties or looking for someone to listen without prejudice, I’m here for you.
How Can Individual Therapy Help You?
Providing a Safe, Yet Challenging Space
Therapy offers a private and judgment-free haven to discuss your thoughts, emotions, and aspirations. While it is a comfortable setting to explore yourself, it also challenges you to have tough conversations, question your preconceptions, and confront your fears.
Identifying Strengths and Obstacles
Throughout treatment, you will gain valuable personal knowledge and broaden your perspective. Therapy will help you recognize your assets, values, areas of improvement, and any limiting thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that could be holding you back.
Creating Lasting Change
Therapy provides clinical insight and practical skills to navigate hardship and make necessary shifts to improve your well-being. As you make progress, you will feel more confident and empowered to leverage your inner resources, apply research-based techniques, and overcome obstacles.
Having a safe space to learn about yourself and make changes can translate into better relationships, sustained mental health, and a clear purpose.
