What do you need help with?

In counseling you have a relationship with someone who is trained to help you accomplish your mental health and wellness goals. Counselors work with clients on strategies to overcome obstacles and personal challenges. You can address themes that have come up in your social and emotional development. Whether you are concentrating on an ongoing mental health issue, or just need a place to sort through a current problem, a counselor can be a non-judgmental, compassionate, safe person who can help empower you to change.

Areas of Practice


DEPRESSION

  • decreased or increased appetite
  • decreased or increased sleep
  • fatigue or low energy
  • reduced self-esteem
  • decreased concentration or problems making decisions
  • feeling of hopelessness or pessimism

ADJUSTMENT & LIFE TRANSITION

  • symptoms may occur as you go through a life event  
  • you may experience stress, increased sadness or anxiety, and/or physical symptoms

COMPLEX GRIEF

  • grieving is a natural response to loss, but sometimes factors like trauma, conflicting and complicated relationships lead us to "get stuck" and experience prolonged grief

ANXIETY

  • tiring easily; more fatigued than usual
  • impaired concentration or feeling as though the mind goes blank
  • irritability (which may or may not be observable to others)
  • increased muscle aches or soreness
  • difficulty sleeping (due to trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, restlessness at night, or unsatisfying sleep)

FAMILIES

  • work with children, teens and parents to negotiate the challenges of individual and family development

     


STRESS MANAGEMENT

  • learning how to set healthy boundaries... knowing "how" and "when" to say no
  • learning how to communicate rather than internalizing concerns and conflicts
  • slow down emotional flooding and overthinking with meditation, yoga, or whatever activities are soothing to you
  • letting go of distressing thoughts and feelings through journaling
  • using healthy coping through exercise and other positive activities

co-dependency

  • a habit of over-focusing on another, and not staying in touch with our own needs and feelings
  • a pattern that we often learn in childhood because someone in our family has excessive needs due to addiction, emotional, or physical problems
  • this obsessive focusing leads to compulsive care-taking behavior of the other, and neglect of ourselves
