Individual Therapy

Clinicians at Best Life Behavioral Health treat individuals with a range of issues.  Here are just a few of the common ones.

Depression

Depression is one of the most common reasons that individuals seek counseling.  When struggling with depression, you can feel sad, tired, overwhelmed, irritable, angry, hopeless, and frustrated.  Through therapy, it is possible to change your perspective and learn different and more adaptive ways to cope with the stressors in your life.  Therapy for depression can be brief and symptom-focused, or of longer duration to tackle the deeper origins of your patterns of viewing and responding to life's challenges.

Anxiety

Anxiety is highly treatable with cognitive-behavioral and insight-oriented techniques.  Dr. Rodman is trained in exposure and response prevention therapy, one of the most scientifically validated ways to treat anxiety.  You may have learned to be anxious in your family when growing up, or your anxiety may have been triggered by a stressor in your adult life.  Either way, anxiety sufferers often make very motivated and responsive patients.  Don't allow your anxiety to continue to constrict your life without seeing if therapy can work for you.

Interpersonal Issues

Relating to others in effective ways can be challenging, whether you are having difficulty with partners, coworkers, siblings, parents, children, or adult children.  Therapy can help you explore the reasons why you may find it difficult to confront others,  express your true thoughts and feelings, or identify and end toxic relationships.  Counseling can provide you with tools to make these relationships more fulfilling.

In more complex cases, people feel as though there may be deep-seated personality issues affecting their ability to interact successfully with others, particularly within intimate relationships. Personality disorders, such as borderline and narcissistic personality disorders, can be underlying causes of these difficulties.  These  can improve as well, with therapy that focuses on root causes and helps the individual learn and practice different behavioral patterns.
