It isn’t necessary to stay stuck in painful or challenging circumstances as therapy provides an opportunity to address difficult situations and move towards peace with self and others.
Counseling or therapy can support the resolution of:
Trauma (past or present) – A traumatic event involves a single experience, or an enduring or repeating event or events, that completely overwhelm the individual’s ability to cope or integrate the ideas and emotions involved with that experience.
Workplace Challenges or Issues: – improving workplaces through team building, resolution of workplace conflict and improving collaboration.
Emotions Regulation – Anger, anxiety, self-deficits, depression, aggression and emotional extremes.
Mental Health Management – Identify symptoms that are impacting emotional health and wellness. One in five individuals will be diagnosed with a mental health issue, including depression, phobias, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive and conduct disorders.
Life Transitions Counseling – Life change/transitions such as marriage, birth of child, mid-life crisis, retirement, parenthood, job or career transitions, death of loved one, divorce, accident, serious illness, etc. are all events that often result in a period of time that require some substantial changes that require shifts in our emotions, thinking and lives.
Therapy offers the opportunity to improve communication skills which may result in improved relationships with partner and/or others! Hence, as we work through complex issues, beliefs, feelings and thoughts, these skills are further enhanced both verbally and non-verbally including communication in conflict, emotional regulation, handling rage.
Therapeutic interventions may include:
- Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
- Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT)
- Humanistic Therapy
- Trauma-informed (integration of the neurosciences)
- somatic integration
- …..and a number of other modalities.
Single Session Therapy – Assist an individual to consider all aspects of a difficult decision.
Parenting – parent coaching and support is also available as we parent in this complex world and wonder about good parenting practices.
Goals in Treatment – To work with individuals, children, and families and to assist these individuals to communicate in a clear manner that leads to the integration of the past and their present in order to be joyful about their future.
Second, to work with clients so to collectively work through difficult situations, thoughts, and emotions so that these thoughts are no longer impacting your thinking, feelings or day-to-day functioning. These are my goals for you in therapy.
