Individual counseling could be the right option for you as it works well for various mental health conditions.

Often these conditions are comorbid, meaning they occur together at the same time. For example, if you struggle with anxiety, you may also struggle with depression and panic attacks. Your counselor will choose the best plan to address each issue, starting with the one that triggers all the others. For instance, you may find that once you have learned ways to manage your stress and anxiety, your depression and panic attacks lessen dramatically.

Agoura Christian Counseling offers one-on-one sessions either in person or virtually. You may find that you do better meeting with your counselor once a week face-to-face with virtual sessions as needed, or you may prefer counseling online only. How you receive counseling is up to you and what works best for your condition and your schedule.

Your counselor will combine evidence-based methods with biblical principles, strengthening your foundation of faith while working on psychotherapy techniques.

One of the most common methods effective in treating multiple mental conditions is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT teaches you to identify negative thoughts and emotions and reframe them. This is a skill you will practice both with your counselor and outside of your sessions.

When you reframe your thoughts and feelings, you can change how you react. You learn to manage impulsive behaviors and anger. You can change how you feel about a thought or a past trauma. Ask your counselor about CBT and other effective treatments.

It takes a brave person to seek counseling. It is not a sign of weakness to ask for help – instead, it is a wise option. Throughout the Bible, we learn of wise kings and leaders who asked for advice from counselors before engaging in major events. You will go through things that require input from others. Life can be confusing and sometimes we need help moving past trauma, grief, anger, and other issues.

At Agoura Christian Counseling, your sessions are private and confidential. We take individual counseling sessions seriously. You can consider your counseling session a safe place for sharing even the most intimate of details.
