types of therapy

Individual Therapy

Individuals often seek counseling in hopes of gaining assistance with a specific problem or experiencing they would like to address on a personal level. Clients work one-on-one with their individual therapist to explore their experiences, behaviors, beliefs or symptomology. With the benefit of a fresh point of view, clients will be able to identify blind spots and patterns that may be holding them back from living their best lives. At Manhattan Wellness, we take an individuated approach, tailoring treatment to meet each unique needs of our individual clients.

Each couple comes to therapy with their own unique story and experiences. Through couples therapy,   the couple will begin to understand  how each partner plays a role in the problems within their relationship. With the guidance of our therapists, the couple will learn to communicate in a safe environment and begin to uncover the root of the problems they're experiencing. We will help the couple recognize where their relationship is stuck and how to adjust the dynamics to overcome the challenges, and restore a deep sense of connection.

Couples therapy

In a group counseling setting, usually about 5-10 individuals meet in person with a trained therapist to address a specific shared problem. The benefit of group therapy is having the opportunity to speak with individuals who are experiencing similar obstacles or feelings and to provide useful feedback to each other as well as reducing the feelings of being alone in what and individual may be going through.
