Anxiety has the affect of drawing a person into their inner world of worries, preventing life from being lived in the present moment. Relationships, jobs and general well-being are affected. Anxiety impacts over 18% of the American population. It is highly treatable though.
Couples so often start out strong, building each other up and supporting each other's goals. Over time, life stressors and transitions can make it challenging to stay connected and feel heard and understood by each other. Whether it be communication, conflict management, life transitions, or financial issues, we are here to help.
Everyone feels sad and low sometimes, but when low mood is severe and persistent it can affect your ability to be present for your loved ones, remain connected to support systems and work toward life goals. Left untreated, it can affect self-esteem and confidence. We help with that.
Trauma can be large or small, due to relational or developmental conflicts, or witnessing or being a part of a disaster. Untreated trauma and the big feelings that rise and fall from it, can feel confusing and scary. It can make it difficult to stay connected to family and friends and not live in the past. There is hope. There are many proven treatments for trauma, and our therapists are skilled in treating trauma and helping to restore hope.
Good relationships are at the core of life satisfaction and well-being. Conflicts among family members or co-workers can feel distressing and confusing. Sometimes relationships feel boring or too intense, and these experiences can lead to self-blame and feelings of frustration, sadness and helplessness. The good news is that relationships can be strengthened and repaired through shifts in perspective, communication skill-building, and conflict management skills.
Many parents feel helpless and confused when witnessing their struggling teen who is in pain. Adolescence is a pivotal time in life where there are huge shifts in identity, surges in creativity and a need to belong to a peer group. For some teens this is an easier transition, and for others it is harder. Some may have more outbursts, more anxiety or just bigger feelings in general that are hard for them to manage.
