Are your go-to coping skills leading to negative consequences in your personal or professional life?
Are you feeling:
Maybe you are procrastinating at work, feeling stuck, and are lacking motivation.
Maybe you are struggling with past Trauma/PTSD--images keep popping up in your mind, it’s hard to concentrate, your emotions feel so strong it’s hard to function
Perhaps there has been a change in your relationship, communication is strained and connection is difficult.
You may have trouble sleeping, and stress from work, family and relationships is taking over. Are you walking around with a knot in your stomach, tightness in your chest, or sore and tight muscles?
Kids can also be a major stressor. You may be a new dad, or are trying to figure out how to best connect with your kids. Parenting is a tough gig. But there is support available.
Are drugs, alcohol, gambling, pornography, or video games taking over your life and leading to negative consequences? Whether you’d like to decrease usage, or know you’re dealing with addiction, we can help.
At first, you’ll just get to know your therapist. They will ask you some questions about your life and why you’ve chosen to come to therapy. However, you get to decide how you answer and what you share. There may even be some joking around or talking about tv shows. Your therapist can help explain the therapy process and you can ask any questions you may have.
As you get more comfortable with your therapist--this may be the first session, or may be several sessions in--you may feel more comfortable sharing more about your life, and in greater detail about your reasons for seeking therapy. Your therapist can then help you figure out your goals and help you come up with a plan to meet these goals.
