Why Counseling?

There are a number of scenarios that often serve as the catalyst to begin counseling. Following are a few common examples that may help you to decide whether you should seek support.

Depression | People who struggle with depression often feel down for extended periods. They lose interest in activities that they once found pleasurable. Depression negatively affects millions of Americans each year.

Anxiety and Stress | Stress and anxiety are related, but often confused. Stress is tension associated with a specific event (e.g. a test or a job), while anxiety is a non-specific worry about the future. To find relief, people with anxiety may turn to repetitive routines, preoccupations, or addictions.

Arguments | Conflict resolution is an important part of any relationship. Conflict plays a vital role in allowing two people to reconcile differing needs. Unfortunately, when conflict is handled poorly, it can cause distress in the relationship.

Trauma | Experiences that overwhelm or scare us can leave a lasting impression. The symptoms can leave us stressed, depressed, and have negative consequences for our work and home life.

Communication | Feeling understood and understanding one's partner is what allows couples to deeply share one another's lives. Often, couples struggle with communication issues, which actually mask deeper relationship issues.

Trust | Trust plays a vital role in sustaining a relationship. People trust differently. For some, trust is established quickly, while others are slow to grant trust. Similarly, some are able to forgive quickly, while others find it hard.

Self-Esteem | Self-esteem is a feeling of personal worth. It is important to be able to value yourself regardless of your current state of personal achievement, beauty, or intelligence. Your self-esteem creates the foundation for a full life, great relationships, and a feeling of well-being.

Stress Management | Many people are trying to juggle numerous things in life. This may be family, work, children, and any other activities of daily living. Our therapists can help you manage the anxiety and stress you incur from all of these wonderful, but sometimes stressful areas of your life We will help you come up with tools to manage all of the areas of your life.

ADHD/School Related Problems | Many clients come to counseling to help with focus and attention, as well as study strategies, tools for test taking, and organization/time management.
