Couples Therapy

COUPLES THERAPY

Couples therapy can be an effective way of finding how to better connect with one another, perhaps even creating a new and happier relationship. Deciding to go to couples therapy is a big step, sometimes involving admitting that things aren’t perfect in your partnership. Don’t let the issues sit on the back burner too long. Often, the sooner you deal with serious problems in your relationship, the more likely the success in resolving them.

ELDERLY THERAPY

Relationships can suffer as issues particular to older people occur more often, causing greater distress both financially and in health. For example, an older person experiencing pain has a higher risk drug side effects. Depression, though as common as in younger people, often goes unnoticed and the cure can sometimes be very different.

 

Our clinicians can help you cope with age-associated problems, counselling you on alternative methods of dealing with depression, pain, and caring for one another.

Stress Management

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Stress is actually a normal part of life involving a complex interaction between our mind, body, and environment. It keeps us alert and ready to react to things happening around us. But when someone faces continuous challenges without relief, and the stress is not managed well, he can have problems sleeping, headaches, illness and even depression. Too much stress overtaxes the natural resources of our body both physically and mentally. In fact, nearly one-in-three Americans experience extreme levels of stress, which negatively impact health and well-being, work, and relationships.

Three types of warning signs of too much stress are:

  • Physical warning signs, including weight changes, sleep disturbances, grinding teeth, back pain, and sweating or trembling hands.
  • Behavioral warning signs, including increased accidents, over-consumption of alcohol or drugs, and conflicts with others.
  • Psychological warning signs, including irritability, lack of emotional control, feeling overwhelmed, and crying spells.

Our clinicians can walk you through practical methods of daily tension relief exercises, discuss issues that may be better handled to decrease stress, and help you manage your well being.

Depression Treatment
DEPRESSION TREATMENT

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a person to have a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest in life. Being depressed can make you feel helpless and trapped. Some people may feel generally miserable or unhappy without really knowing why. It affects how you think and behave and can lead to a variety of physical and emotional problems. Sometimes you may question whether life itself is worth living, or that normal day-to-day activities are a difficult struggle. It is more than a feeling of sadness over an unhappy event, and it may be hard if not impossible to “snap out of it” on your own.

Younger children may exhibit sadness, irritability, worry, aches and pains, or refusing to go to school. Teems may have negative feelings and feel worthless, have anger, poor performance or poor attendance at school, or feel misunderstood and be extremely sensitive. Older adults having depression often go undiagnosed and untreated, seen incorrectly as a normal part of growing older.

Depression is not a normal part of growing older, and it should never be taken lightly. Unfortunately, depression often goes undiagnosed and untreated in older adults, and they may feel reluctant to seek help. Symptoms of depression may be different or less obvious in older adults, such as:

Depression may require long-term treatments of psychotherapy, medication or both. Our cinicians can help you find the strength and motivation to be stronger and in control of your life again.

Individual Therapy

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Individual therapy is when a therapist or psychologist meets with you to help you overcome obstacles to your well-being. It can increase your compassion and self-esteem as you learn skills for making healty decisions and handling difficult situations. Many people enjoy the journey of becoming more self-aware, and continue ongoing therapy for self-growth and reaching life goals. Remember that, although your therapist may be directing the conversation and the sessions, you are the one in control.

The length of each session varies widely, depending on what you and your therapist agree to. To make sure all aspects of the problem have been addressed, it usually takes at least eight sessions, but can be more or less depending on the complexity of the issues.

The first session will often involve you and your therapist getting to know each other through discussion, asking and answering questions about you such as your past experiences, your family, job, and friends. Once you and your therapist have both developed an awareness of the situation, you work together to determine potential solutions, possibly involving a course of treatment or working at a program.
