Many people go through times of feeling sad, frustrated, or overwhelmed after a crisis, trauma or traumatic event. This can bring on feelings of anxiety or depression. Relationships can then suffer which can lead to further isolation or hopelessness. You might not know how to help yourself and wonder if your life will always feel this gray. You don’t know how to get through this time in your life and worry if you will ever feel like your old self again.

Most People Endure Difficult Times

Life has both joyful and heartbreaking moments. The difficult times, like the death of a partner, infidelity, unemployment, or health problems, can feel life-altering and leave an individual feeling fragile and vulnerable which can also affect our relationships. Feelings of grief, anxiety, or depression can then occur.

Many people feel stuck, confused, or devastated during such challenging times and don’t know how to move forward. It can feel overwhelming or embarrassing to ask for help. It can feel overwhelming or embarrassing to ask for help, especially if you feel scared or embarrassed about things that have happened in your past that you had no control over, but seem to be controlling you.  Maybe everything looks great on the outside, but what’s on the outside isn’t matching how you feel on the inside. Life just doesn’t feel fulfilling and you find yourself wondering what’s next.

The good news is that you can heal and move forward from these turning points in your life with strength and self-compassion. With the help of an empathetic and experienced therapist, you can learn to reconnect with yourself and loved ones and find joy again.

Individual Counseling Can Help

It is normal to feel stuck, worried, or full of grief during crises, as a result of a trauma, or after traumatic event.  It is also normal to feel stuck, worried, or unhappy and not know why, and to sometimes reach a point in your life where you just aren’t sure what is next.  Give yourself the gift of being heard and supported while you move through this time in your life. You are not alone, and we are here to help. We excel at helping individuals figure things out, and claim the life they want.

In our sessions, we’ll address your needs and goals as an individual, with relentless empathy, compassion, and acceptance to help you both grow and reconnect with yourself and those around you. We use a combination of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EMDR. IFS helps clients understand the different parts of themselves in relation to their feelings and behaviors while EMDR helps clients recognize and heal past trauma that may be impacting themselves and their relationships.

Our goal is to make individual counseling a safe and supportive atmosphere. We acknowledge and honor the courage it takes to show yourself to a therapist, and our goals are to help you grow and reclaim your happiness.

Some Concerns You May Have About Therapy

  • My finances are tight, how can I afford therapy?
    We understand that therapy is a financial investment. You are worth it. We are on some insurance panels and offer some reduced fee appointments to try to make therapy as accessible and affordable as possible.
  • I am embarrassed about getting help.
    Talking to an unbiased person and revealing the whole picture is the first step to getting help. Everyone struggles in life, and the healthiest among us are brave enough to get help.
  • I am too busy to fit therapy into my schedule.
    You give so much to others, it’s time to make time for yourself and show that you are also a priority. You must put on your own oxygen mask before you can be of assistance to those you love. We also offer evening appointments for client convenience.
