Walk and Talk Therapy

In addition to counseling in a traditional office setting, we offer clients the option to combine exercise, therapy, and the outdoors. Studies have shown that problem solving ability increases during exercise. This approach adds the physical benefits of exercise and the mental benefits of being outdoors. The beautiful Big Springs Park is a block away from our office. The emphasis is on the therapy so this won’t be a cardio workout but you should wear comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for walking.

Women's Issues

A common theme in many of our lives is the feeling of being overwhelmed, tired, burnt out. Do you ever feel like you are doing everything but nothing particularly well? As women we are the caretakers of our society but what often gets neglected is tending to our own physical and mental health. We have forgotten that of all the many jobs and responsibilities we have, the one thing that only we can do is to care for our soul. Whether it’s grief, depression, anxiety, unresolved anger, relationship issues, or just daily stress there is always the opportunity to change.  We consider it our privilege to take care of the people who take care of everyone else.   

Parenting Concerns

Let’s be real – this parenting thing is just REALLY hard. We may have the best intentions but we also need good methods and guidance at times. Every kid is different, every stage is different, and just when we start feeling comfortable with this parenting role it changes again. We can help you clarify your values, identify your goals, and develop effective discipline techniques. Parenting is the most important job there is. We love helping people who want to do it well.

 

Children and Adolescents

girlsOne out of five kids will experience a mental disorder in a given year, whether that’s depression, anxiety, attention problems, behavior problems, or a traumatic experience. We work to help kids understand the connection between feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Through use of play therapy, art therapy, and other expressive techniques, children are given tools to communicate what is happening internally.

Caregiver Stress

cargiver-canvaCaring for someone with an illness, injury, or disability can be rewarding but can also be emotionally and physically exhausting. Caregiver stress often brings anger, guilt, and feelings of resentment. Depression is very common as well as insomnia, fatigue, and stomach symptoms. Self-care for the caregiver is not a luxury, it is necessity. We love taking care of the people who take care of everyone else.
