Through counseling, you receive support as you identify and set out your goals, form a plan of action, and gain insights from new discoveries
Stress, Distress, Anxiety
Emotional strain and tension can arise from a variety of adverse or demanding circumstances in family, health, work and relationships, sometimes showing itself in excessive worry about a variety of topics, events or activities. This sense of overwhelm can be lessened.
For a tree to become tall it must grow
among the rocks.
Life Transitions, Divorce, Choices
The loss of a job, separation or divorce, addition of a new baby, loss of a loved one, the approach of middle age, leaving home for college. Sometimes we're ready for changes, and sometimes we're just not prepared at all. It can be a little easier with help in seeing how to choose our next steps.
Don't be afraid to go out on a limb, because that is where the fruit is.
Relationships, Couples, Conflict
Creating connections with others is a part of living. Some connections are necessary, like in work or school, others are voluntary, such as who we choose to love. Connections are seldom static, constantly changing and creating challenges for us, both individually and together.
Love is like a tree...it puts down deep roots into our whole being.
Loneliness, Grief, Depression
The distress associated with grief, loss, loneliness and related emotional experiences can be relentless. Feelings of emptiness, loss of interest in social, work or other activities, as well as problems sleeping, are all indications and part of the disruption from these conditions of the mind, body and soul.
The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.
