Services to Fit Your Needs
At Odyssey Psychotherapy, I offer a range of services within my practice to meet your needs. I offer three configurations of psychotherapy: individual, family, and group. Additionally, I offer consultation and case management as a supplement to therapy or as a stand-alone service.
Getting to the Heart of the Matter
Do you need a private and confidential space to share your innermost pain, the kind you haven’t entrusted to anyone else before, even family or close friends? Individual therapy is a great option when the needs pertain more to personal issues that stem from childhood or earlier life experiences.
When Teens and Kids Need a Confidential Space
For teens or children, individual therapy is preferable when the issues are unique to the child and not significantly affecting other family members, or if the child needs a safe space to express himself/herself before engaging in family therapy. You will generally discover more benefits with a family approach if communication dynamics and strained relationships are the problem.
Not sure which path to take? Send me your question and I’ll gladly discuss this decision with you.
In family therapy, treatment focuses on the whole family. This is a collaborative, team-oriented approach. When multiple family members are struggling, often the problem lies in the family system, not just one person. Key benefits of this approach include:
- Acknowledges the importance of each family member
- Considers the needs of all parties involved
- Reduces individual blame and focuses on the family as a system of relationships
- Children and teens may show more willingness to change if parents participate

Group is an ideal setting to work on relationship dynamics. Each member brings his or her unique style of attaching and relating to others. As a result, groups are lively laboratories in which to practice new ways of relating to others. Issues well-suited to group therapy include:
- Confidence to speak your truth in assertively
- Shame around family, personal secrets or traumas
- Anxiety during verbal disagreements
- Emotional intimacy and trusting others
- Boundaries and ability to say “No”
- Purpose and meaning in life and relationships

Consultation and Coordination
For many clients, particularly children, consultation and coordination of care between providers (e.g. school, doctors) ensures we are all working as a team without crossing wires. Consultation may also help obtain additional information from parents or others when working with a child or teen individually.
On-going or extensive consultation and coordination will incur additional fees based on the time involved. Not sure if you need this? Use the form below to ask me your question and let’s discuss this further.
