ANGER | STRESS MANAGEMENT
Stress can be overwhelming and debilitating. Many times a person reacts to stressful situations using anger. Anger is a secondary emotion that has a tendency to make matters worse. De-escalation, thought blocking, and safety planning are but a few techniques taught to process and properly manage anger.
MARRIAGE | COUPLE COUNSELING
Many people enter relationships with the idea that love conquers all. Many discover that while love is enough to bring people together it takes more to keep them together. Communication skills building, conflict resolution skills, and rules for fighting fair are but a few techniques offered in tis area.
No one wakes up in the morning and declares, “the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, I think I’ll develop an addiction today”. Addictions can develop behind a number of conditions. I partner with an agency that addresses all elements of an addiction and to offer treatment that is private, dignified, and nonjudgmental.
ANXIETY | DEPRESSION
People have a tendency to develop anxiety over fear of the unknown. They ruminate over possible outcomes, worry that something will or will not occur, and otherwise feel that their lives are not theirs to control. While there is no simple way to treat anxiety, through technique and insight building it is treatable.
SELF-ESTEEM | DISCONTENTMENT
Many times people surrender a part of themselves for the sake of maintaining relationships. They lose sight of their own identities and come to dislike the person they have become. I can assist in rediscovering that person who has become buried deep inside and help the inner person to emerge.
GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP
The goal of this support group is to assist grievers in moving beyond the pain of loss. Although when many people think of grief and loss one of the first types of loss that comes to mind is the death of a loved one. However, grief can become a part of your life from over 40 other types of losses such as divorce, health, finances and others. The duration of the group is eight weeks for two hours each week using The Grief Recovery Handbook, 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition by John W. James and Russell Friedman. This growth journey is also tailored for those who would benefit from working one-on-one with the therapist.
