Individual Therapy

     Therapy in Chester and all of NJ

Is your mood getting in the way of enjoying your life?

Are you having difficulty with your relationships or marriage?

Are you going through a divorce, career change or another life transition?

Are you a mom and feel pulled in every direction?

Do you feel that you are not good enough and strive for perfection? 

Many people struggle with life’s ups and downs. Things were going just fine until they weren’t.  Perhaps you feel defeated and no longer hopeful that things will improve.  Whether it’s due to a rocky relationship or  marriage, an unfaithful partner, family conflict, separation or divorce or some other challenge the joy you used to feel is gone. 

No matter how hard you try to “get over it’ you just can’t. Getting through the day is a struggle. You might feel overwhelmed, unmotivated or have difficulty accomplishing routine daily tasks.  You keep ruminating about your problems. You may even know what you need to do but can’t bring yourself to do it.  

Perhaps you’re talking to friends and family and but no one seems to really understand what you’re going through and nothing changes. Therefore, your way of coping might be turning to  alcohol or drugs, excessive shopping or overeating.  You may be sleeping all day and/or isolating yourself from the world to escape your feelings. 

Counseling Provides Relief, Hope and Positive Change

Although things may seem like a mess right now, counseling can help you feel better.  Counseling is an effective way to take care of yourself.  The therapists at Modern Family Counseling are here not only to  support you and be your sounding board but also to help you process your thoughts and feelings and develop healthy coping skills. We will work collaboratively with you to help identify your strengths and create a plan so that you can begin to move forward.  We can provide you with the tools and strategies that are specific your situation so that you feel  happy, confident and like your best self every day.

Modern Family Counseling (MFC) Offers Individual Therapy For Many Issues Including But Not Limited To:

    • Relationship Issues (trust, infidelity, anger, communication, intimacy etc.)
    • Mood instability (depression, anxiety, anger, bipolar) 
    • Post -Partum depression
    • Career transition, workplace issues or work/life balance
    • Separation and Divorce
    • Life transitions (new mom or dad, empty nest, college, marriage etc.)
    • Lack of confidence or low self-esteem
    • Adult ADHD
    • Women’s issues (menopause, PMS etc.) 

MFC Therapists Are Experienced In The Issues You Face

Your counseling will go at a pace that is comfortable for you.  Your therapist will create an atmosphere in which you feel safe discussing whatever is on your mind and will gently guide you toward  insight and solutions.   We will help you figure out what you want to get out of your counseling so that you can accomplish those goals with confidence.  Our objective is to get you to a place where you don’t need us anymore.  

Our clients leave counseling with confidence in their ability to manage their emotions, relationships and life’s stressors.  We have helped them strengthen family ties, cope with difficult people and how to deal with the unexpected.  Our clients end their counseling experience feeling happy with their life and hopeful about their future.
