Counseling for Adolescents, Adults, Couples and Families
Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
Hypnotherapy can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, substance abuse including tobacco, sexual dysfunction, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues. Hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal side effects of pregnancy and chemotherapy.
This form of counseling consists of a group of clients attending sessions together based on a particular theme (i.e. overcoming divorce). A group is run by a therapist or multiple therapists and together the whole provides support, encouragement and helpful feedback in the present moment. This can be for those clients who want to enjoy life more, improve relationships, learn more about what others see and perceive, and feel better about themselves. Throughout the year, there are various groups that are conducted based on particular topics and are posted on this site. Regular group participation is asked of all participants and the number of sessions change depending on the group that is being run. The prices vary due to the number of participants and facilitators. Click on the group counseling tab at the top to see currently available and upcoming groups.
This is a collaborative, confidential process between the client and the counselor. This process is focused on your individual needs and together, a unique treatment plan is made to maximize change. Individual counseling is geared towards empowering you to find your meaning of happiness and to help learn the tools to overcome life's obstacles. To be seen and heard with kindness and compassion is deeply healing and for another to support and understand your experiences and views can help you rediscover yourself and your full potential
This form of therapy specializes in treating relationships within the family. Counseling for the family may require collaboration as a unit, or individually. The counselor helps the family to understand one's self in relation to the whole family, family patterns, communication styles and relationships. This is achieved through discussions, treatment planning and problem- solving sessions. We work with families to help with forming clear roles and expectations, learning and practicing compassionate communication, parenting styles and re-establish or strengthen healthy roles within the family.
*For parents: Many times you may feel like they have lost a sense of respect and control with your children. Family counseling can be helpful for re-establishing health in learning skills to regain control, form new communication styles and rebuild trust.
Couples counseling is for married and unmarried couples who are looking to increase connectedness, resolve conflict, deepen intimacy and to work through stages of life and challenges. Even the best relationships may need some adjustment or foundation work in order for both individuals to move forward together. This is a type of therapy that addresses the relationship and is framed around supporting one another to explore and understand similarities and differences with respect and compassion for yourself and your partner. Most of our couples counseling sessions are 90 minute appointments.
