Women’s Issues – Women face competing priorities, roles and life expectations.  We have a range of responsibilities and many roles to fill.  Balancing all of these factors can lead to stress, anxiety, depression, addiction or other mental health issues.  Without balance and effective coping mechanisms, women can turn to unhealthy behaviors to deal with the growing pressure.   Please follow this link to read more in-depth about our approaches to women’s issues.  GO THERE NOW

Traumawoman-mental-healthPeople who have experienced traumatic events often exhibit symptoms and problems that recur.  How severe these symptoms are depends on the person, the type of trauma involved, and the emotional support they receive from others.  Symptoms of trauma can be wide and varied, and differ in severity from person to person.  After a traumatic experience, a person may re-experience the trauma mentally and physically,  we work to de-energize your traumatic “triggers” so that reactions and symptoms can gradually be eliminated. Triggers and cues act as reminders of the trauma, and often cause anxiety and other emotions. You might not be aware of the “triggers” that reside within you that lead to suffering, disruptive or self-destructive coping mechanisms. We employ an array of state of the art evidence based methods to alleviate trauma and its symptoms.

EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing – photo This innovative psychotherapy that enhances people’s ability to resolve problems in day to day life by assisting them to attend to internal experiences and external stimuli at the same time.  EMDR is also increasingly being used as part of the growing field of positive psychology to enhance performance for people at home, at work, in sports and in the performing arts, as well as diminishing symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder.

Mindfulness

Counsel3 Practicing mindfulness helps you to recognize your habitual patterns of mind which have developed out of awareness over time. This allows you and those around you to respond in new and productive ways (as opposed to habitual reactions).  Mindfulness is psychological skill and characteristic that encourages complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis, and it means paying attention in a particular way: purposeful, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. We help you to learn how to self-regulate your attention so as to concentrate on immediate experiences, promoting increased recognition of mental events in the present moment. We then help you to develop an “orientation” toward experiences that is characterized by curiosity, openness, and acceptance.
