Our areas of counseling:
Individual Counseling is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client may work together with counselor for a couple of sessions to several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.
Marriage and Couple Counseling
Marriage/Couple counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through marriage/couple counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship or going your separate ways.
Marriage counseling is often short term. Marriage counseling typically includes both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a counselor alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation.
Marriage/Couple counseling help couples to strengthen their bonds and gain a better understanding of each other. Marriage counseling will also benefit couples who plan to get married. Premarital counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage.
Parents, Children, and Families Counseling
Like their parents, children experience the full range of human emotions, happiness, sadness, joy, grief, anxiety, depression and more. Like their parents, children are affected by what is happening in their environment: parent’s fighting, separation and/or divorce, loss of a family member, bullying, addictions, school stress, coming out, relationship abuse, dating violence and more.
Unlike their parents and other adults, children will often use behaviors instead of words to express what they are feeling or experiencing inside of them. Depending on the age of the child, these behaviors can range from bedwetting, tantrums, nightmares, hyperactivity, peer conflicts, withdrawal and a host of other behavioral issues.
No matter their age, children want to be heard. At our center, our counselors are adept at working with children to provide them a safe space where they can express their feelings using age appropriate therapies such as art, play, sand-box. Our family counselors will get to the root of issues, and equip children, and their parents with the tools to keep the doors of communication open, relieve their distress and to improve their social and relationship well-being.
Teenage and Young Adult Counseling
Teenagers now a day confront many challenges, pressures, stresses, temptations, and asks in brains that are not yet fully developed. It’s not just that teenagers haven’t had the time and experience to acquire a wide sense of the world; quite simply, their brains just haven’t physically matured yet.
Dealing with pressure and stress is no small challenge for a fully mature brain (adult), much less one that’s in the transition from childhood to adulthood and in the transition from concrete to abstract thinking. That is why it’s even more important for parents to understand what their children’s brains are going through as parents monitor — and often worry about — their children’s social, academic, and emotional challenges.
Counseling and coaching can help parents and teens to turn these years of risk into years of opportunity, where we can guide you and your teens with the tools and techniques to make a wise decision, control their impulse and grow to be a responsible adult.
