You are the expert on you– but sometimes you need the assistance of a trained professional to help you make sense of it all. In individual psychotherapy sessions, you will work one-on-one with your therapist to become more aware of patterns in your life and enact changes to lessen your suffering and increase your enjoyment of life. You and your therapist will work together to create a treatment plan to help you accomplish your goals. Individual psychotherapy is the foundation of treatment. It is the place where treatment is tailored to meet your unique needs. Whether you are struggling with eating issues, body image concerns, relationship difficulties, sexual issues, or any other problems—individual sessions are the first step to creating change. Each therapist at Conason Psychological Services has unique areas of specialization. Please read each therapist’s profile to see who seems like the best fit for you or contact us to set up a complimentary 15-minute consultation call where we can recommend a therapist who will best meet your needs.
Couples TherapyCouples therapy helps couples at any stage improve their relationship, whether you are looking for a “tune-up” to a generally happy relationship or you are considering separation from your partner. You and your partner will meet with a therapist to explore what works and what doesn’t work in your relationship. During the initial consultation, we will create goals for treatment and tailor a plan to meet your needs as a couple.
Family TherapyIn a family, no one person struggles alone. We are all part of an interconnected system influencing one another. This becomes especially apparent when a member of the family is struggling with an eating disorder, body image issues, undergoing bariatric weight loss surgery, or a major life transition. Our therapists can help you navigate life’s challenges as a family unit, building on your families strengths and working to improve dynamics that aren’t serving you.
Sex therapy is psychotherapy treatment specifically focused on sexual issues. Treatment may be either individual or couples. Common issues that are addressed in sex therapy include difficulties with arousal, orgasm, desire, pleasure, erectile dysfunction, sexless relationships, concerns about sexual practices, or the impact of body image on sexual functioning.
In group psychotherapy, you will meet with other people struggling with similar issues and learn new ways to cope with your challenges. Please join the newsletter list to stay notified of upcoming groups. Prior groups have included:
- Body Image Group

Workshops are time-limited events focused around one specific topic. Past workshop topics include “Mindful Eating During the Holidays” and “Manage Diabetes with Mindful Eating.” Please join my newsletter list to stay notified of upcoming workshops.
