Therapy for Anxiety
Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure. There is such thing as normal or healthy anxiety. This tends look like someone who is nervous about a test, job interview, or an event that could be potentially harmful or worrying. Anxiety becomes “abnormal” when we usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. You may find yourself feeling overwhelmed with thoughts that won’t stop, unable to rest or concentrate, or even being on edge. You’ve constantly found yourself worrying about things without being able to stop or feel that things are out of your control. Maybe you’ve found that there are moments when you can’t catch your breath, the room starts to spin or your heart feels as if it’s going to beat out of your chest. Perhaps it’s hard to make decisions because those what-if’s are so loud and that internal chatter is so busy putting you down. We all experience anxiety in different ways. Whatever it is you’re experiencing, you’ve begun to notice the impact of anxiety in every area of your life: school, work, and relationships. You’re tired of living your life in the shadow of worry and fear… and you’re wondering what to do.
Therapy for Trauma
Trauma lives in all of us. Trauma is anything that overwhelms our perceived ability to cope. Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event, past or present, that causes feelings of hopelessness, diminishes sense of self and our ability to feel and experience a full range of emotions. Trauma comes in many forms; there is the trauma of our lived experiences; childhood, abuse, neglect, violence, accidents, illness and grief. There is the trauma of our ancestors, passed on to us through relationships and DNA. There is the trauma of living in an oppressive society. This trauma can live in our minds, bodies, memories and beliefs about ourselves and the result can be devastating. You may be feeling overwhelmed and anxious or numb and exhausted. You may be experiencing racing thoughts, sleeplessness, flashbacks or nightmares. Maybe you are struggling with guilt and shame, a loss of trust in yourself or the world, difficult relationships, or feeling like you don’t even know who you are any more. Whatever it is that you’re experiencing, know that this season in your life will not last forever, and we’re here to help you come out on the other side of it.
Life Transitions and Self Exploration
Change is a natural part of life that each of us will constantly find ourselves navigating. If we were to write some of the changes we’ve experienced over the span of our lifetimes, many of us would find that it would be rather easy and quick list to compose. Whether that change is positive or negative, the transition can leave you feeling like your life has turned completely upside down. You’re not alone.
How we each experience life transitions can vary based on many factors. What may seem big to some may be small to others. These transitions can be planned or unexpected, but still have an emotional charge that often leads to feeling out of place or lost with what the next move should be. Often times during a change in season, it leaves the individual through a change as well. As your life transitions, sometimes its best to take a step back and explore just how these changes affect you. For example, when losing a job, feelings of self-doubt, hopelessness, questioning identity, etc. can all come up. During these times, some of the stages we may go through are emotional discomfort, mourning, fear, feeling overwhelmed, anxious or even depressed.
Therapy for Mothers
Being a mom can feel like one of the most daunting roles in a woman’s life. Motherhood has its seasons of joy and fulfillment. But it also comes with isolation, stress, exhaustion and feelings of being unappreciated. You may see other moms and start the game of comparison. Some thoughts that may come up for you are “How does she make it look so easy?” “How are their kids sleeping through the night when mine haven’t slept at all?” Or maybe you’re wondering if you’re doing something wrong in your parenting, or you just don’t feel the joy you thought you would when you first became pregnant. Mama, you’re not alone. Don’t let the mom guilt deter you from seeking out support. It is possible to care for your children and family and still care for yourself. It is possible to enjoy your kids and look forward to days with them. It is possible to feel like the best version of yourself- strong, confident and secure. You don’t have to continue to sacrifice your health and mental stamina in order to serve your family. The truth is, you can’t pour from a cup that’s empty. Right here, right now, you can make the decision to choose you. It’s not selfish! You deserve to thrive.
Therapy for Couples and Families
Couples and Family Therapy focuses on the set of relationships a person has developed, whether it’s family of origin or family of choice. Couples and family relationships can be complex and range from all sort of dynamics. We work within the context of how relationships work in systems to address a variety of mental, emotional, and relational issues. More than anything else, couples and family therapy focuses on deep, long tern change that affect the whole system. It’s more than just addressing an individual, but also exploring how each one is impacted within the system. They help improve communication skills, increase mutual respect, and help kids develop into healthy adults. Though Couples and Family Therapy may sound like a broad term, our therapists are able to tailor your sessions specifically to your needs. We offer therapy for blended families as well as families of origin. Many have experienced brokenness in families. Whether it be from childhood traumas, feeling distant or growing apart, unresolved issues with parents or siblings, or working through family dysfunction. There is hope and there can be healing for you and your family. If you’ve ever seen families on TV and asked, “Why can’t my family be happy like them?” It’s time to take a step back and truly discover what has happened within your family system and how to fix it. Maybe you’re a couple, married or not, in search of healing in your relationship. Couples experience an array of difficulties including: communication, building trust, infidelity, issues with sex, etc. We provide a safe, objective space to explore your relationship and find resolve to the areas that are broken. We also offer services to couples that want to prepare themselves for their future by embarking in premarital counseling. Perhaps you’ve been dating and want to best prepare yourselves for the next step in your relationship. Premarital counseling is for you! Through assessment and tailored curriculum, couples are provided a structured way to explore and uncover the most important things to know and discuss before getting married. Whatever season you and the ones you love are in, know that together, we can have the hard conversations and truly work together so you are all thriving.

Therapy for Executives
& Business Owners
You’ve created and run an incredible business, you’re successful and your visions for your career have come to fruition. You’re a problem solver, and often people look to you for advice and direction. You work extremely hard to create a sustainable business and career for yourself and others. You work well under pressure and you’re well respected and valued in the community around you, by those in your organization and even those from the outside looking in. What often doesn’t come to the forefront, is that you feel isolated and alone. Because you’re often the “go-to”, you don’t have very many people who YOU can go to. Your relationships may suffer because you don’t have the energy or emotional capacity to give others what you know they deserve. This leads you to feeling withdrawn and filled with self-doubt. The pressure you feel can sometimes be overwhelming, leaving you feeling stuck, unmotivated, and depressed. For just awhile, you want to feel heard. You want to feel that someone understands and cares about your health and wellness. You want to be seen for who you are as a person, not just for what you do or the services you provide for someone else. You’re in the right place.
