List Of Services

Individual Counseling

Individual Therapy: Individual therapy is one-on-one interaction between two persons (a therapist and a client (you)). This type of interaction can initiate a process of change that can enhance not only your own life, but the lives of those around you.

Couples Counseling

Couples’ therapy helps couples improve their relationship in many ways such as helping couples recognize and resolve conflicts that they have not been able to handle effectively on their own. Couples’ therapy involves both partners sitting with a trained professional to discuss their thoughts and feelings as well as explore ways to improve communication and the relationship as a whole.

Group Counseling

Provides participants an opportunity to share their experiences, acquire positive coping skills and gain supportive advice.

Anxiety Disorder

Excessive worries, sleep problems, mind racing, perfectionism, self-doubt, irrational fears, muscle tension, chronic indigestion, these are some of the symptoms of anxiety disorder. Anxiety affects how we feel and behave, and comes in many different forms, —such as panic attacks, phobia, and social anxiety—and the distinction between an official diagnosis and "normal" anxiety isn't always clear.

Depression

I am tired of being tired. I feel like a big dark cloud is hovering over me. I feel like a big black dog is hanging around me. I feel like I am drowning, I can’t get a move on. These are some of the common phrases that people who are struggling with depression utter. Depression is not simply a temporary change in mood or a sign of weakness. It is a real medical condition with many emotional, physical, behavioural and cognitive symptoms. Depression is a very common, highly treatable medical illness for which there are many effective treatments. If you suspect that you are depressed, it is important that you get help as soon as possible.

Truama & Abuse

“I suffered abuse in my life during childhood”, Trauma can be caused by an overwhelmingly negative event that causes a lasting impact on the victim’s mental and emotional stability. While many sources of trauma are physically violent in nature, others are psychological. Some common sources of trauma include: Rape/Sexual Abuse, Domestic violence, Natural disasters, severe illness or injury, the death of a loved one, witnessing an act of violence, Motor Vehicle Accidents.

Eating Disorder

Extreme dieting, extreme exercising, extreme food intake habits, calorie counting, intense fear of weight gain, obsession with weight and persistent behavior to prevent weight gain. These are some of the symptoms of eating disorder. Eating disorders -- such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder – include extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences for females and males.

Self-Esteem/Body image Issues

Excessive worries, sleep problems, mind racing, perfectionism, self-doubt, irrational fears, muscle tension, chronic indigestion, these are some of the symptoms of anxiety disorder. Anxiety affects how we feel and behave, and comes in many different forms, —such as panic attacks, phobia, and social anxiety—and the distinction between an official diagnosis and "normal" anxiety isn't always clear.

Life Transition

Transitions are a natural part of life, though the circumstances and challenges may differ. Whether it’s leaving high school to go to college or work, changing jobs, getting married, having children, graduating from college, sudden layoff from a job, unwanted and uninitiated breakups in relationships. Whatever the circumstances may be, navigating this gray zone of transitions can be difficult, presenting us with new problems and demanding us to respond in new ways.

Christian Spiritual Growth

What is my purpose in life? How can I know the will of God for my life? What is the will of God for my life? Why am I here? These are existential questions that plague us at one point or other in our lives.

Grief/Loss

Loss is an inevitable part of life, and grief is a natural part of the healing process. Whether it’s the loss of a loved one or loss of a pet or loss of a job/career, a loss has to be grieved. Healing happens when we take time to properly grieve and cope with a loss.
