Individual Therapy for Young Adults (17+) and Adults

Individual therapy is amazing and transformative work. If you have never been to therapy before, it typically consists of once weekly sessions that run about 50 minutes long. This, of course, may vary from person to person depending on the need. The beginning part of therapy is spent getting to know one another, and building a supportive and trusting relationship. With those two things, it is possible to do the work involved in therapy. 

Therapy at Verbena Counseling can often times go beyond just talk therapy. Depending on the goals and desires of the client, sessions may include: 

  • Activities that can help the client become more aware of feelings, both emotionally and physically, and what is needed to improve quality of life and relationships (poly vagal, IFS, DBT). 

  • Meditations/Mindfulness activities

  • Yoga/movement

  • Art

Regarding therapy for teens 17+...

All clients MUST consent to therapy. An important part of what makes therapy so successful is the desire to be there. It is important that the clients at Verbena Counseling have a sense of choice and agency, especially when it comes to therapy. If the teen or parent(s) have any questions, I am more than happy to schedule a call. 

If you have questions, or would like to schedule an initial session, please click here to contact me. 


Verbena Counseling is offering video-based therapy that is HIPAA Compliant.

Illinois laws are continually changing and shifting as we gather new and updated information related to the pandemic. Currently, all insurance companies are required to cover teletherapy, with the exception of  some self-funded plans.
