Common Therapy Topics

 

Grief

The loss of a loved one, as well as other important losses, can result in a host of intense and at times conflicting emotions.  Further, new losses can bring up earlier grief, compounding the pain.

Conflict

 

 

When our closest relationships are strained it impacts every part of our life, even our health.  Sometimes we get stuck in painful patterns we can't seem to shake.

Parenting

 

 

Parenting can be the most rewarding and the most challenging of our life's roles.  Many parents at times wonder if they're "doing it right", or worry if their children's behavior is healthy and normal.  

Trauma

Everyone experiences traumatic events in their lives.  When a situation overwhelms us the experience of fear, paralysis, shame and rage can be stored in our bodies for decades, undermining our physical and mental health.

 

Life Transitions

 

 

Graduation, parenting, retirement, divorce, remarriage...we experience transitions throughout our lives.  Sometimes we can struggle with the changes and adaptations required.

Anger

 

 

The emotion of anger can give us important   information and help us be assertive.  Yet anger can be overwhelming and difficult to manage, leading us to try to squash it or unable to express it appropriately.

Stress

 

 

Balancing work, family, health, and recreation can be challenging.  We can find ourselves not enjoying life or feeling successful.
