Effective Tools and Goals

Family Therapy. Peace.

You will be equipped with simple tools to recall in hot button circumstances with family, friends, and coworkers.  LUV-Talk (Smalley) and anger management basics can help de-escalate situations and change habits.  Anger is a secondary emotion and always has underlying, vulnerable feelings which may be invalidated or unheard.  Learning to identify the true emotion under the anger is the challenge to avoid hiding or hurling.  Anger is common to all of us, but can be used for good when addressing important feelings toward restoring healthy relationships.

Karis Means Grace...Acceptance, Compassion & Encouragement

Depression & Anxiety

Teen Depression, Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.  Reaching out is the last thought you may feel like doing, but is important to feel known and understood for the pain and suffering.  When you're in a dark cave, you need someone to sit with you to be hope when you cannot.  Depressive thoughts are extreme, and it is difficult to think outside of your perspective without help.

Grief, Loneliness, Loss, Lack of Direction

Help for Depression, Grief

Many individuals experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps identify false thoughts which can lead to chronic negative feelings. Over time, you begin to look forward instead of being emotionally focused backward.  Clients are encouraged as they relate in the present moment and are more fully engaging in their world.

Healthy relationships at home, work, or with friends are stronger when we relate in acceptance, honesty, and forgiveness.  Adjustment to mothering, career, loss, moves, chronic illness, and trauma can contribute to depression and anxiety.   We can help you get new perspective to move past the pain.  Anger, addiction, abuse, eating disorders, grief, and mood disorders are concerns we address to encourage you toward healing.

Couples see change and strong love as they see the results of validating the other's thoughts and feelings before being emotionally demanding in defense.  The blame game stops and both feel loved and respected.
