Many people experience times in their lives when personal challenges can become difficult or overwhelming. Trying to manage these challenges alone can often lead individuals to adopt ineffective and unhealthy coping mechanisms, creating an even heavier burden. In times like these, it can be helpful to enlist the services of a therapist. A therapist can provide you with a safe space to talk through the issues that you are experiencing. They will teach you ways to manage stress, regulate emotions, and make healthy decisions that will help you resolve issues and create positive changes in your life.
Counseling can also be beneficial even if you are not currently experiencing difficulties in your life. Many people seek counseling to simply become more self-aware and achieve an elevated state of mental wellness. A therapist can simply act as a sounding board and offer support, an outside perspective, and expert guidance.

Sometimes people need medication to help them manage the symptoms of a mental illness or addiction disorder. Mental illnesses and addictions can be the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain, which is why medication is often prescribed for people facing these challenges. Our psychiatric prescribers can provide a diagnosis and prescribe medication to help you with your treatment.

EMDR is often used to help people heal from the symptoms of traumatic life experiences and emotional distress. Your counselor may ask you to recall distressing memories, and then they will direct you to perform a specific task like moving your eyes side to side or tapping your hand. These tasks can help dampen traumatic memories.
MRT is often used as a treatment method to help rehabilitate individuals and reduce their chances of falling back into old habits. This treatment helps the client to increase their moral reasoning through a series of steps like confronting current beliefs and reinforcing positive behaviors.
CBT is a common therapy used for mental health disorders. Our counselors might use CBT to help their patients develop positive coping strategies for depression, stress, anxiety, or addictions. It challenges and changes unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors to improve clients’ emotions and behaviors.
Our therapists are skilled and experienced in helping people who have experienced traumatic events. Trauma therapy is expertly focused on helping people process their experiences and emotions delicately and with empathy.
