Counseling

Anxiety Counseling
Anxiety counseling aims to help individuals manage their feelings of anxiety so that they may live as close to a normal life as possible. Several types of anxiety disorders include panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder. Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous when faced with a difficult situation or problem. Worry and fear are constant, overwhelming, and can be crippling for people with anxiety disorders. Psychotherapy attempts to help manage those feelings of anxiety by getting those feelings under control.

What are the factors associated with your anxiety? Quite often, individuals who suffer from anxiety do not understand why they are having anxiety. As we engage in therapy together, questions that I ask you in therapy will help me to understand the collaborative factors that may be causing your anxiety. I want to help you understand and resolve the underlying problems that are keeping your anxiety alive. I will use cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy and other approaches to help you get your anxiety under control.

Bereavement & Grief Counseling
Bereavement & Grief Counseling is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones, or with major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (for example, divorce, sense of loss of self or identity, pet, or job loss). People often grieve of more things than we usually think. Recognizing one’s grief and give an outlet to it is essential for a holistically healthy life. Grief can be quite a lonely experience that one can feel at the very core, and there are no pills that one can take to manage its persistent, aggravating pain. You wish to take that pain away, but nothing seems to help. I have helped many clients work through their grief experiences, which includes providing grief therapy to hospice patients and their families.
Depression Counseling
Depression robs you of the feeling of well-being, causing you to feel debilitated by depriving you of energy. To some people, it feels like falling, trying to get up, and fall right back down. I want to look with you to understand what’s keeping you stuck in the dreadful feeling of depression. We can team up to say “goodbye” to depression and “hello” to the feeling of well-being. I have helped many clients live lives dominated by a feeling of well-being.
PTSD Counseling

Individuals who experience Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) usually feel provoked by an incident or situation or a combination of traumas beyond their ability to manage or control their response to such traumas and need professional assistance to alleviate or resolve the impact of the undesired life event or events. Common approaches to treating PTSD include Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Spiritual Counseling
Spiritual Counseling focuses on the spiritual aspects of a person. Someone may want to grow and evolve into the essence of what he or she truly is, thus seeking a deeper understanding of self, strengthening connections, growing, and expending relationships with self, God (the Essence of life), and others to experience a more connected and rewarding life. Individuals may also seek to understand, clarify, strengthen, and revise belief systems that contribute to their current expressions of spirituality.
Substance Abuse Counseling
Substance Abuse and behavioral disorder counselors advise people who suffer from alcoholism, drug addiction, eating disorders, or other behavioral problems. They provide treatment and support to help the client recover from addiction or modify problem behaviors.
Life Transitions Counseling
Life Transitions Counseling is a form of counseling or psychotherapy in which individuals, couples, or groups are assisted in their attempts to transition from difficult life changes.
Couples Counseling
Marriage Counseling, also called couples therapy, is a type of psychotherapy. Marriage counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through marriage counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship or going your separate ways.
The word couples suggests a sense of togetherness, meaning two people, who want to be together, get together for the purpose of experiencing something good, something meaningful, or something positive. However, coming together can be a source of pain if couples lose sight of their main reason for coming together and not resolving their conflicts. Quite often, one of the most difficult things for couples to do is to learn to communicate effectively with each other. Couples usually feel stuck and unable to express their needs. If you truly care about your relationship with each other, my intent is to help you make your connection with each other stronger.
Separation and Divorce Counseling
Divorce Counseling, also known as divorce therapy, is a relatively new concept in the mental health category. With one in two marriages ending in divorce in the United States, more and more people are turning towards counseling to seek help and advice. It is a kind of therapeutic process for those who experience and continue to feel the pain and humiliation of divorce.
