Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. These emotions can be overwhelming, controlling, and even debilitating. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you find effective coping skills, recover motivation, perspective, and experience joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
We believe working on healing from trauma wounds is very important, and is foundational to overall health and emotional stability. These deep, unattended wounds often contribute to further issues, in an attempt to make ones self feel better, or to not feel at all (i.e. acting out/affairs, OCD, panic attacks, addictions, criminal behavior, eating disorders, etc.).
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship, as well as those needing marital repair. Therapy sessions are structured for the therapist to meet with both the couple and with each partner individually. The environment is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen and mend your relationship, and to improve communication and intimacy, not just for the moment, but for forever together.
