Therapy for Anxiety
Explore Sources of Anxiety

The symptoms of anxiety are more complicated than simply feeling “stressed” or “worried” about a particular situation. For individuals living with anxiety, there are many triggers that can cause them to manifest physical symptoms, like nausea, dizziness, speech impairment, heart palpitations and much more.

When someone with anxiety communicates with others (including their partner or spouse), it can be difficult to explain how it feels to experience these symptoms of authentic fear and concern.

Our therapists help people with anxiety by getting to the cause of specific triggers. We can help you explore coping strategies that are proven to calm and restore mental well-being, eliminate negative internal dialogues and achieve peace of mind.

Therapy for Anger
Learn to Manage Mood Variances and Feelings of Anger

Anger is a human and natural expression of frustration, disappointment and stress. It is normal to feel these emotions when going through a transitional stage in life, or when experiencing significant financial, social or relationship stress.

One of the most important things you can receive through behavioral therapy is a deeper understanding of where and when feelings of anger are generated as well as how to channel them into activities that provide relief instead of conflict at home or in the workplace.

Therapy for Trauma
Embrace Self-Empathy for Survivors of Violence or Trauma

Survivors of trauma or abuse can re-experience traumatic events in a multitude of ways - through intrusive memories, thoughts, dreams, and even in our bodies. Without expert counseling and therapeutic support, it can be difficult for individuals to progress past the deep feelings of victimization and vulnerability, establish a sense of safety as well as rebuild confidence in others and within themselves.

Therapy helps survivors reestablish a sense of safety, rebuild self-concepts and bolster strengths. Our therapists help clients manage triggers, processes of grief and anger, develop adaptive perspectives of themselves and others in their journey towards healing.

Therapy for Grief
Transition Through Grief with Support

Losing a loved one is among the hardest emotional journeys an individual can take. Whereas grief may be most commonly understood as a process following the death of a loved one, grief may arise in the wake of other losses as well (e.g., divorce, breakups, loss of job, loss of a pet). Children who have lost one or both parents can be developmentally slowed by grief if not addressed and processed. Even many adults are not prepared for the emotional impact and symptoms associated with grief, which can impact sleep, mood, and energy. Adults who have experienced a personal loss must often compartmentalize their grief for the sake of being ‘strong’ for other family members during the months, and sometimes years after the death of a partner, close friend or family member.

Grief must be healthfully expressed to promote emotional healing and recovery. Our therapist offer a safe place where clients can be honest about the complex thoughts and the emotions they are confronting. Our staff also provide coaching to help restore activities of daily living, and support to transition through each stage of grief with compassion for self and others who are sharing the loss.

Cope with The Transitional Stages of Divorce

For most people, the idea of getting divorced is similar to the stages of processing grief. For couples who are unable to reconcile their differences, seeking therapeutic support post-divorce can help ease the transition into a new life as a single person.

For divorcing families with children, counseling is very effective at helping adults learn to co-parent productively in a way that reduces conflict, enhances communication, and promotes healing.

Couples Therapy for Divorce
Rebuild Trust and Communication with Your Partner

Breaches of trust may represent a mojor threat to couple relationships. Couples who successfully navigate a breakdown in trust may stay together but the lines of communication and intimacy can be damaged in a way that requires understanding and work to reestablish. Our therapists provide couples therapy services that help to rebuild the foundations of a healthy relationship.

Couples Therapy for Rebuilding Trust
Learn to Navigate Relationship Conflicts

It is normal, and even healthy, to have periodic conflict in your relationships with family members, friends or significant others. But how we express ourselves and treat partners during a conflict, can either strengthen or further damage the relationship.

Avoiding conflict entirely is difficult if not impossible. Learn how to ‘fight fair’ in a constructive way that brings healthy new changes to your relationship. Expressing upset and disappointment with your partner will help strengthen communication skills and understanding, helping you restore peace, and increase intimacy.
