Services

Dr. Wagner is now accepting new referrals for individual and couples therapy as well as sport and performance psychology services.

Dr. Wagner is also available for group presentations.

Individual

Individual therapy involves regularly scheduled sessions that are one-on-one.  Typically the sessions are weekly.  During the initial 1-4 sessions, Dr. Wagner conducts an assessment to determine the specific area of treatment needed.  It is also at this time that you and the therapist will collaboratively decide upon treatment goals as well as how to reach those goals.  Therapy can be short-term or long-term depending on your needs.

Dr. Wagner works with adolescents and adults (ages 10-64).  She specializes in working with adolescents and young adults using her unique approach in relating to them and quickly building a strong therapeutic bond with them.  She is able to view the individual’s concerns from their perspective and relate to them and the issues that they are faced with at their particular stage of development without being critical or judgmental.  Dr. Wagner has professional interests working with the following presenting issues:

•   Depression

•   Anxiety

•   Relational Problems

•   Job/Career Issues

•   Self-Acceptance

•   Stress Management

•   Anger Management

•   Separation/Divorce

•   Personal Growth

•   Identity Development

•   Life Transition Issues

•   Grief and Loss

•   Adolescent Issues

•   School Issues

•   Social Anxiety

•   Substance Use

 

Couples

Whether you are in a new dating relationship, engaged, or married, couples therapy can be beneficial in a variety of ways.  Just as in individual therapy, an assessment is conducted with both individuals during the initial therapy sessions to help identify issues and formulate treatment goals.  Couples therapy can assist with problem areas such as:

•   Improving Communication.

•   Assistance with Problem Solving/Decision Making.

•   Overcoming Disagreements.

•   Creating a Stronger Supportive Relationship.

•   Parenting Issues.

•   Strengthening the Emotional Bond.

•   Developing a Deeper Understanding of your Spouse/Partner and His/Her Needs.

 

Sport Psychology and Performance Psychology

Regardless if you are a competitive school, collegiate or professional athlete, sport psychology (or performance psychology) can assist you in enhancing your performance on a consistent basis.  Performance psychology is not only helpful for athletes, but similar techniques can be applied to performance in many other areas including academics, music, worked related, etc. Sport psychology and performance psychology sessions are similar to individual therapy in that they are typically one-on-one and occur weekly.  Dr. Wagner conducts an initial assessment to identify problems areas and to develop a unique treatment plan that is tailored specifically to the individual.  Dr. Wagner works with adolescents and adults ages (10-64) on issues that may be impacting an individual’s performance and can help with:

•   Decreasing Performance Anxiety

•   Recovering from Injury

•   Increasing Focus/Concentration

•   Learning to Control Emotions

•   Assistance with Pre-competition Readiness

•   Increasing of Self-Confidence

•   Increasing Motivation

•   Increasing Stress Management Skills

•   Recovering from Failure

•   Coping with Distractions

 

Dr. Wagner can also address other issues that may have a negative impact on an individual’s performance such as:

•   Depression

•   Anxiety

•   Family/Relational Issues
