Often times we are told by our loved ones when we are experiencing difficulty to “pray about it” “we are too sensitive” or “handle it on our own”. Although their advice can be helpful and useful. What happens when we need additional support? What happens when we need someone to hear us or understand the pain we are experiencing? What happens when we just need help to change? Peaceful Living Counseling & Professional Services seeks to help you during the transformation by meeting you where you are and aiding you to be the best person you can be.
Therapy is NOT about someone telling you what to do, correcting you or telling you, you are wrong or bad. Therapy is about looking at what is going on within, feeling, doing, thinking, and learning new skills for dealing with yourself and others in your life.
Individual therapy involves one-to-one interaction with a trained therapist. Typically, a client meets with a therapist once a week or until the client feels he or she has made change or progress. Nearly everyone can benefit from individual therapy. Individual therapy can help people gain insight about themselves and discover the tools they need to achieve their own goals. For example, people often seek therapy because they feel depressed, experience panic attacks, have trouble dating, feel lonely, or feel fat but are unable to maintain a diet or workout routine. Individual therapy can help clients to develop healthy patterns and routines to cope with life’s ongoing challenges.
Couples & Families
If you are seeking couples or family counseling, you are either in a difficult situation or want to enhance your relationship with one another. Our practice is available to consult with any individual dedicated to working through conflicts or wanting a deeper connection.
Your relationship has three sacred parts – yourself, your partner, and both of you as a couple. I take into consideration your individual histories and needs, and how that affects the dynamics of the relationship. We work with all three parts to help bring them together to form a cohesive partnership.
