Counseling and Therapy Services
Life is challenging. While you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, seeking out extra support when you need it is admirable. In fact, therapy is for people who have the self-awareness to realize when they need a helping hand. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to make changes that can enhance your life and your relationships. Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges.
The road of life is bumpy, and takes turns you don't expect. Therapy can help you to examine where you can make changes in order to live a more purposeful and fulfilling life. You can learn about your strengths and vulnerabilities and use what you discover about yourself to become more successful, more comfortable, and to enhance your connection to others.
The focus of couples therapy is to provide a setting in which both partners can feel safe to explore their feelings and work on reaching a deeper understanding of each others’ needs. In couples therapy, you can learn new skills that will allow you to build intimacy and connection without sacrificing your individual identities.
Although divorce has become more commonplace and the attitude toward divorce has become more acceptable, the emotional impact on a family can still be dramatic. Divorce counseling can help spouses and their children who are struggling through this family transition.
Collaborative Divorce is a way for couples to resolve disputes respectfully without going to court by working with trained professionals in all areas affected by the divorce. By using a cooperative approach couples can effectively reduce the competitive aspects of divorce and increase their ability to make decisions that best fit the needs of their family.
Family plays an important role in our emotional, physical and spiritual development. Each individual in the family system impacts and is impacted by every other member of the family. Looking at your life in this systemic way can help you to understand and address your needs and behaviors within the context of your unique family environment.
Adult child/parent relationships can cause tremendous frustration for all parties. Adult children and their parents can find themselves at odds in the "same old ways" or in new ways, for example, when children become the caregivers. Counseling can help you address the underlying basis for your parent/child difficulties, open lines of communication, and help you build a more loving, supportive relationship.
Your workplace relationships can be particularly complex; worker-to-worker or boss-to-subordinate. The success, failure, or absence of relationships at work can have an immense impact on performance and ultimately the success of your career and your livelihood. The key to navigating these complex relationships is to better understand how you behave at work and how these interactions may be different from other relationships in your life.
If you or your spouse are contemplating the direction of your marriage, but are unsure which path you should take, you are in a tough spot. Discernment Counseling is a chance to slow down, take a breath, and look at the options for your relationship. Often times there is one person who is not sure that couples counseling will or can help; and the other person is commited and motivated in saving and rebuilding their relationship. Discernment counseling has been designed for just these types of situations.
