All Adult Counseling and Children Services

Young Adult Counseling

Each phase of development brings specific challenges for teenagers. Some concerns may be a reflection of changing attitudes or feelings. Our teenage counseling methodology welcomes teens of all backgrounds to come express themselves in a safe and objective environment.

Anger Issues

Anger is often a reaction to stress, injustice, failure, frustration, or feeling blocked from something that feels important. However, the expression of anger can sometimes be excessive. Anger management psychotherapy is for anger prevention and control, primarily used to help individuals express their anger in healthy and socially compatible ways.

Anxiety Issues

Anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric disorders diagnosed in childhood and adolescence, but can appear well into adulthood. If you suffer from panic attacks, unrelenting worries, obsessive thoughts, or an incapacitating phobia, you may need treatment for an anxiety disorder.

Depression Counseling

Our modern culture has normalized “fixing depression” with medication, However therapy has been proven to be an essential part of depression treatment. Psychotherapy addresses the underlying reasons for depression and help you learn effective coping skills to deal with the issues.

ADD and ADHD Treatment

ADHD, ADD, or otherwise known as Hyperkinetic Disorders, are a family of behaviors identified by chronic inattention or hyperactivity. In many cases, ADHD can be effectively treated. However, there is no one size fits all solution.

Eating Disorder Help

Suffering from an eating disorder means you have an unhealthy relationship with food. This can be eating excessive amounts of food, eating little to no food, or being obsessed with thoughts of food, your body image, or compulsive exercise. Generally, this will interfere with several areas of everyday life.

Life Transition Therapy

Life transitions are usually life changing events – such as children leaving the home, an accident, a death in the family, marriage, or moving to a new place – that alters our current state of being. They can be predictable or unpredictable, but all of us will experience a life transition at one point or another. How we deal with it is where therapy may come into play.

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse is any form of non-consensual sexual contact; this includes molestation, incest, rape, and other forms of sexual violence. Crisis assistance immediately following sexual abuse can greatly assist the victims in surviving the trauma, but psychotherapy can also prove effective for those who have suffered past trauma.

Sexual Addiction

Sexual addiction is the inability to control your sexual behavior despite the consequences, and it affects millions of Americans. Addictive behaviors may include having compulsive cheating, preoccupation with prostitutes, and compulsive masturbation and porn watching. This can also extend to disorders that are less conventional such as voyeurism, fetishism, pedophilia, and more.

Spirituality Counseling

Spirituality in psychotherapy is generally defined as the inclusion of transcendent meaning and or beliefs in the process of therapy. This can associated with a particular religion, but can be a non-specific metaphysical association as well, as our connective coexistence with the universe as a whole. Research suggests the inclusion of an individual’s spiritual beliefs may assist in the healing process and should be a consideration in therapeutic treatment.

Christian Counseling

Christian counseling, also known as biblical counseling and Christian psychology, combines your faith with the principles of psychology to improve your mental health and relationships. More specifically, this therapy approach uses scripture and biblical teachings to help you deal with life’s challenges. *

Substance Abuse

Deciding to quit the use of a controlled substance is a significant first step for a person suffering from addiction. However, detox is usually just the beginning. Counseling is an essential part of drug abuse treatment for many people who will end up battling the long-term struggle with craving episodes and relapse. Therapy can also be useful treating the other mental health conditions that can contribute to drug abuse.

Child Therapy

Children sometimes develop problems as a way of expressing that there is something wrong in the family. Conversely, the family may become distressed because of the disruptive nature of child’s problems. We utilize various psycho-therapeutic approaches to help children ages 3 to 12 deal with traumatic experiences, explore memories, and express repressed thoughts and emotions.

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a form of therapy primarily geared toward children. In this form of therapy, a therapist encourages a child to explore life events that may have an effect on current circumstances, in a manner and pace of the child’s choosing, primarily through play but also through language.

Different Types of Adult Counseling

There are various methodologies when it comes to receiving therapy. Adult counseling sessions do not necessarily need to be confined to one-to-one interactions. We may request the presence of other family members or spouse in order to administer proper treatment to the patient. Additionally, therapy can be done either individually or in a group setting. Participating in group counseling along with other similarly afflicted patients can provide a sense of community acceptance, which can be therapeutic in itself. Group counseling also removes the feelings of isolation, so the patient can take comfort in knowing there are other persons going through the same problems.

However, individual therapy can be more targeted to a person’s specific needs and successes, without competing with the group dynamic. It is important to have a discussion about which type of setting(s) may work best for you when you begin treatment.

Many people avoid seeing a therapist for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s concern with being labeled mentally unsound, the stigma surrounding people who need psychological support, or the over prescription of personality altering medication — the reluctance to reach out for help can be a challenge in it of itself. Fortunately, a lot of people benefit from counseling.

There is no age limit for developing psychological issues. Young child to a senior citizens may be affected by issues. If you are uncertain where to get started, give us a call for a free consultation.
