Individual therapy

If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, relationship issues, grief and loss, parenting difficulties or other behavioral concerns, we are here to help.

In individual therapy you will work with your counselor to determine your unique goals. You will meet weekly or bi-weekly with your therapist in order to get the support that you need as you work on your goals towards better health.

Your counselor can help you with any concerns you may have about your current substance use, if needed. This means we can meet you wherever you are in your life journey.

In fact, some of them have many years of their own sobriety, which means they can relate to the challenges and the rewards of the recovery process. At Wayside, our dedicated staff ensures that women are empowered with the skills they need to prevent recurrence of use and the strength to build a healthier life.
