Individual therapy

What is individual therapy?

The private nature of individual therapy sessions allow you to speak openly and confidentially with Dr. Ervin about your most troubling thoughts. Clients collaborate with Dr. Ervin to identify their strengths in addition to what thought and behavior patterns might be obstructing your path to mental wellness.

Why choose individual therapy?

For Dr. Ervin, one of the main benefits of individual therapy is replacing destructive thought patterns and behaviors with more positive ones. 

Research increasingly supports the idea that therapy can improve your overall health or, in Dr. Ervin's words, "[t]herapy can assist you in becoming the healthiest version of yourself..."
