Anger Management

Anger is a secondary emotion that comes to our aid and protects from the threatening world around us. It works well as a survival strategy when we are little. However, as we get older anger doesn't work well as a life strategy because other people get hurt and often the issue in life never gets resolved when anger is the answer.

Our therapists are trained to help people identify the real life feeling that is under the anger and find ways to deal with that issue so that other life strategies that work more effectively in life can be learned and used for current life problems.

We work with individuals, adults, children, families, court ordered issues such as assault and battery, drug induced emotional reactions, custody, parental communication and co-parenting issues among many others.

Depression and Anxiety

With all the worldly changes happening all around us, many people are depressed and/or anxious. Sometimes our world is a scary place with what look like few options and when we can't get things set right, depression becomes our life partner all to easy. We have therapists trained in these areas to assist you with life skills that can help you address these life adjustment issues or deeper post traumatic events in your life and help you set a new course of strength in your life.

Emotional Issues of Medical Illness

Illness is one of the most invasive experiences in our lives.
It weakens the body and shakes up our self confidence and ability to “fend for ourselves”.
We become vulnerable and many people worry about losing their independence and ability to “navigate” on their own.
Having someone to talk with during these times, can help us keep grounded and focused on working through our life changes to a better place.
It gives us a pathway to HOPE….the most essential ingredient for “getting better”.

Grief and Loss

Our therapists are trained in helping people work through grief and loss issues whether that is the loss of a loved one, a traumatic event in people's lives that leaves them without family, home or job, or a personal challenge which may include death, medical diagnosis of self or others, job changes or family changes that requires drastic life adjustments including the loss of the life that a person was planning on having. Changes in our world right now seem to be frequent and greatly challenging. We want you to know that we are ready to walk through these distressing life dynamics with you.

Parenting Skill Development

Parenting children is a difficult thing these days with all the media, drugs, influences from t.v., music, video games, movies and other ideas that find their ways to the family unit. Our philosophy involves including the parent as part of our therapeutic team. We work with the parent to provide them with parenting techniques and strategies to assist their children and families to make changes that bring a family back into balance. We also work with the children of the family to develop appropriate ways of expressing their ideas and feelings to the rest of family with the ultimate goal that all family members can get their needs met and honor the needs of other family members as well.

Stress Management

For thousands of years daily meditation has been the choice of spiritual masters for dealing with inner strife.

Some cultures focus on sitting meditation; some focus on walking and communing with nature.At the core of meditation are twin tasks: self awareness and self acceptance.

One simple system has been developed by Dr. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, which he terms - Self Love Exercises. The participant sits and repeats mentally a series of phrases that focus on relaxing the body and affirming the acceptance of self worth.

Troubled Youth

Our children's lives are so much faster paced than generations before. With the influences and demands of technology, learning, achieving and performing, many get overloaded and seek ways to reduce life stress that sometimes ends up in self defeating behaviors that disrupt family life before parents realize what has happened.

We work with children, adolescents and their parents to find harmony and develop healthy family relationships. We have therapists who have expertise in working with children from ages 0 to 5, 6 to 12, adolescents (13-17) and young adults (18 and above).

Helping family members identify their feelings, express their needs and learn to communicate effectively with other family members is our work.

Some children/adolescents need special assistance in healing from traumatic incidences in their lives and we have professionals who are trained in that too.

Please let us know how we can help your family return to a place of respect and harmony, in human incarnation is to spiritualize matter…

The spiritual awakened person is truly joyful.
