COUNSELING

We can work together to better understand and meet challenges you are currently experiencing in your life.  Integrative therapy and various approaches and techniques can help us discover behavior patterns that may be holding you back. Some of these therapies will include: positive psychology, sleep therapy, solution focused therapy, mindfullness based therapy,  behavioral activation and cognitive behavioral therapy. In addition health psychology, the mind-body connection and holistic psychotherapy will be utilized.

Treatment involves components of mindfulness training, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness to address thoughts like these. Specific breathing exercises and changing internal self-talk create changes in thinking that help you feel less anxious and enjoy your life again.

Counseling helps you manage and regulate your emotions by learning to:

  • Recognize thoughts and behaviors that create anxiety

  • Identify new ways of thinking that reduce anxiety

  • Practice self-soothing behaviors that calm the nervous system

By identifying obstacles and moving forward, we can instead introduce healthier patterns and behaviors, which will lead to a more balanced, deliberate and meaningful life. Sessions are generally 50 minutes long. Homework will be given at each session to help you continue to work on your goals outside of therapy sessions. Generally, 3-8 sessions is the expected course of treatment.
