Your internal world can either be the source for much joy and life, or the center of great pain and struggle. Your thoughts, feelings, choices and closest relationships make all the difference. As the Scripture alludes, the heart is the wellspring of life (see Proverbs 4:23).
Here’s the reality though: We often invest so much time and energy into things that just don’t matter. Yet, we believe that taking time to tend to your emotional and relational life is one of the greatest investments you can make.
Can you relate with any of the following examples?
- Feeling trapped by life’s circumstances
- Stuck in difficult feelings of anxiety, anger or sadness
- Worried because your loved one isn’t reaching their potential
- Frustrated at the breakdown in one of your most important relationships
- Wanting to live differently, but feeling helpless when it comes to doing so
While working with any person or family requires an individualized approach, we always seek to empower our clients to achieve greater emotional health and improved relationships. We want to impact your internal and relational world in positive ways that bring lasting change.
You can find joy again and the path to achieve a more fulfilling life. Yes, it takes hard work, commitment and support. This is why we stay focused on fostering authentic emotional health and improved relationships for our clients.
A professional relationship with a licensed counselor gives you the combination of expert guidance and genuine support, which fosters great growth in your overall life. Our counselors are equipped with evidenced-based strategies to meet a variety of emotional & relational challenges, such as:
- ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder)
- Communication breakdown
- Marriage Issues
- Behavior problems
- Grief & loss
- Life adjustments
As you are guided along the path of meeting your goals, not only will you receive skills and strategies for healthy and effective coping, you will grow in profound emotional ways as you process your experiences with your counselor.
We believe counseling is a source to empower greater connection within your closest relationships. Our approach fits within a broader “attachment perspective.” We believe that deeper connection within your closest relationships is a strength, not a weakness. As Sue Johnson (founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy) remarks, your closest relationships are designed to be both a “safe haven” and “secure base.” In other words, your family is meant to make you stronger, more complete.
In counseling we help you make improvements in your closest relationships in order to bring greater wellness. We stay focused on the entire family to bring systemic change. In addition to individual counseling, we love working with the following relationships to improve the life with those who matter most to you:
- Teens & Children
