Charlottesville Empowerment Counseling and Wellness Services

Individual Therapy

Charlottesville Empowerment offers both brief and long-term individual therapy. Individual therapy looks different for each client since it is tailored to your specific needs. If you decide to pursue individual therapy after your free initial phone consultation, your first session will be an "intake session," where you and your therapist will collaboratively determine how therapy can best meet your needs.

Your therapist will work with you to determine what pace, goals, and approach(es) are appropriate for you, and therapy may look like a combination of one or more of the following:

  • Exploring concerns in a safe, supportive atmosphere

  • Developing new skills to manage concerns and reduce symptoms

  • Exploring patterns and experiences in order to increase insight into problems

  • Learning about patterns and problems through your interactions in therapy

  • Gaining support regarding current concerns

  • Processing and healing from past and present experiences

  • Developing clarity regarding needs and goals

  • Emphasizing your strengths and bolstering resilience

  • Considering lifestyle changes and navigating barriers in your way

  • Gaining accountability and support while making changes

Stigma can often get in the way of seeking therapy, and too many people suffer in silence. However, most people could benefit from mental health services at some point in their lives. Emotional and mental wellness are important aspects of health. Charlottesville Empowerment specializes in supporting clients with the following:

  • Anxiety

  • Interpersonal/Social Problems

  • Relationship Concerns

  • Stress Management

  • Family of Origin Concerns

  • Grief

  • Sexual Concerns

  • Depression and Mood Disorders

  • Life Transitions

  • Self-Esteem

  • Trauma

  • Women's Issues

  • Identity concerns and Identity-based stress

  • Trans*Health (including evaluation for letters for Hormone Replacement Therapy and Surgery)

Charlottesville Empowerment serves clients 18-years-old and older from all backgrounds and identities. Fees are set by each provider, please see provider profiles for fees. We currently accept Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna insurance and out of pocket payments. If your insurance allows, we will work with your insurance as an out-of-network provider to help you get you reimbursed. If you have questions about payment options, please email us and we would be happy to assist!

Please note that at this time we are unable to accept individual therapy clients and our waitlist is, regrettably, closed. Please check back in January 2019 if you have yet to connect with a therapeutic fit.
