Treatment Issues

Depression

People who struggle with depression often feel down for extended periods. They lose interest in activities that they once found pleasurable. Depression negatively affects millions of Americans each year.

Anxiety and Stress

Stress and anxiety are related, but often confused. Stress is tension associated with a specific event (e.g. a test or a job), while anxiety is a non-specific worry about the future. To find relief, people with anxiety may turn to repetitive routines, preoccupations, or addictions.

Adaptive Methods for Dealing with Anger and Differences

Anger and conflict resolution are  important parts  of any relationship. Conflict plays a vital role in allowing two people to reconcile differing needs. Unfortunately, when people do not have good ways of handling anger, it can cause substantial distress -- both within the individuals and within their relationships.

Trauma

Experiences that overwhelm or scare us can leave a lasting impression. The symptoms can leave us stressed, depressed, and have negative consequences for our work and home life.

Communication

Feeling understood and understanding one's partner is what allows couples to deeply share one another's lives. Often, couples struggle with communication issues, which actually mask deeper relationship issues.

Trust

Trust plays a vital role in sustaining a relationship. People trust differently. For some, trust is established quickly, while others are slow to grant trust. Similarly, some are able to forgive quickly, while others find it hard.

Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is a feeling of personal worth. It is important to be able to value yourself regardless of your current state of personal achievement, beauty, or intelligence. Your self-esteem creates the foundation for a full life, great relationships, and a feeling of well-being.
