Anxiety creates unrest and robs one of joy. We work to
uncover and resolve underlying causes to restore a sense of peace and joy.
Depression removes desire and zest leading to despair
and hopelessness. We look at the various factors that have led to this condition, and develop a strategy to
regain hope, and the ability to enjoy life.
Relationships are complex, to say the least. God created
us as relational beings; therefore, we crave intimacy with God and others. How we perceive ourselves affects
how we interact with others, and vice versa. Regardless of what the motivating factors are for attending counseling,
focusing on relationships is a major part of the process.
Trauma changes the brain. Its impact creates an over-reactive
response to similar stimuli. The event or series of events that were traumatic become compartmentalized, and
can be instantaneously triggered. We work at the point you are at, and at what rate is comfortable for you as
we seek to unlock this compartment. We allow the emotions to surface naturally, and work on your timetable as
we seek to heal one piece at a time.
Grief involves some type of personal loss. When a loss
is extremely painful it can be difficult to process. We work in exploring and experiencing the emotions associated
with the loss, garner meaning, and put it into perspective.
