Depression and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we experience at some point in our lives. Whether symptoms come from an accumulation of sorrows or the fears of "not being enough," we can do more for ourselves. In doing more, even if simply looking at our Sorrows, our fears; we are stronger for the efforts. The therapeutic counseling relationship allows us to examine and confront what hurts. It also allows us to understand and create new ways and strategies for the future. Successful psychotherapy can offer the person to regain positive interests, help recapture motivation, create new perspectives, and retire those old roles which no longer work for us. We will do our best to work for and accompany you in what you seek.
Many individuals experience symptoms resulting from traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, vigilance are just a few of the emotions which result from traumatic events. More often than not, what we refuse, resist, and avoid to even think about, allows fear and anxiety to increase. Human beings are not wired to forget traumatic events. Tragic, traumatic events causing PTSD and other threats to our wellbeing. Our survival instincts remember nearly everything that threatens to survive.
Think about this - "Human beings experience each event, "Once" (the first time), in reality. Every other time we remember that event, it is subjected to the process of transition."
Traumatic events have been a part of human life since the beginning. Each person is different in their reaction to the stresses of every kind.
We can help you live better and understand these events.
You may find you are"Transitioning" toward understanding, learning something of value, making you stronger than you realized.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held generally, with both couples in a supportive place, to discuss issues and solutions to those concerns in the hope to better strengthen the relationship. We live in a culture where recognizing each other's "similarities and differences" are no longer simply means as signs of compatibility or interest. More and more actually search for another's vulnerabilities, or reject another outright, if that person does not agree with how things appear to them. The ancient fight between "Validation and Agreement." Those with a true interest in learning about themselves, others, generally listen to other points of view. There are a lot of voices out there telling others what is the truth. Some of those opinions are deceitful. We have the ability to know our preferences: what we like, what we don't like. We can always validate another for their truth, their opinion on any given day. A basic truth here is that we are social beings. Not in all cases, of course, To say everyone is social, well, that would not be true. Here is another truth, "I believe:" relationships are everything. Let's look at the relationship with ourselves, with others, the relationships with those who play a role in providing for ourselves. A relationship does not have to be to the point of emotional pain to seek a psychotherapist.
