Thinking About Therapy?

People seek out Individual Therapy for many reasons. They may be experiencing pain from a current or past relationship, and their partner is not interested in or available for therapy. Or they may simply wish to process their thoughts and feelings alone, without their partner, in addition to Couples Therapy.

Other individuals may seek help dealing with specific personal issues, such as feelings of Anxiety or Depression, especially when those issues begin to negatively affect their work or relationships.

Still others are struggling with the aftermath of traumatic events they have experienced, such as violent crime, sexual or emotional abuse, or domestic violence.

Painful Past, Brighter Future

But whatever their circumstances, most individuals come into therapy because they know that something in their life needs addressing, and that having someone to help them do so makes much more sense than going it alone.

So whether you find yourself motivated by the pain of the past or the hope of a better life or relationship, if you see something in your life that needs to be addressed, please let us help guide you to a solution. Together we can find a brighter future.

Trauma:  Is Healing Possible?

Perhaps you were the victim of a violent crime, or you experienced a sexual assault or even sexual abuse. Perhaps you were involved in or witnessed a traumatic accident or event at one point in your life, or were subjected to emotional abuse or domestic violence over a series of years.

But the problem with Trauma, whatever its source or duration, is that it isn’t over when it’s over.

Sure, the traumatic circumstances may be long gone, but the unpleasant results seem to hang on forever. That general sense of unease, those feelings of anxiety or depression, the intrusive thoughts constantly replaying in your mind, the nightmares and flashbacks … They just don’t seem to go away.

Healing is Possible

Fortunately therapy can help with Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and bring relief from their symptoms. Using a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness, plus a dash of Imago Therapy where troubled relationships come into play, we can help you break the cycle and finally find healing from the traumatic events of your past.

Anxiety

Feeling Worried or Anxious?

Everyone experiences anxiety and stress in their life from time to time. In fact, it's completely normal to feel somewhat tense or afraid or stressed out when something bad or upsetting happens in your life.

But when that anxiety becomes too much to bear, when it results in sleeplessness or nervousness or fearfulness, or when it begins to affect your work or relationships, it may be time to seek help.

Learn to Manage Anxiety

Learning what triggers anxiety and how your body reacts to anxiety is the first step to understanding and regulating your emotions.

In therapy you will learn:

  • How your brain reacts to anxiety and stress
  • How to stay in the present moment
  • How to regulate your emotions by identifying coping strategies

Learning these things in therapy will help you become more conscious, which in turn will help you make choices that let you better manage the anxiety and stress that life naturally brings your way.

Depression

Feeling Sad or Depressed?

Have you been feeling tired, lethargic, or indecisive? Have you felt a loss of interest, loss of motivation, or a loss of pleasure lately? If so, you might be experiencing symptoms of Depression, a condition which can worsen if left untreated.

Treatment can Help

The good news about Depression, however, is that treatment can make a difference. Therapy can help you:

  • Learn how to control your mood better
  • Learn how your thoughts impact your behavior and feelings
  • Learn what triggers your depression
  • Learn how depression is impacting your relationships
  • Learn strategies to strengthen your relationships

Healing from Depression is possible. We’re committed to your wellbeing, and will be there with you to help you walk out of the shadows and into the sunshine again.
