Family Counseling

Restore Peace and Structure

Families are an important and unique part of our lives that have their own social rules and structure and need unique and specialized counseling care. Constant fighting, bickering, and distressing experiences can destabilize families and create environments that lead to further emotional and mental distress. Dealing with families issues can be stressful and often families feel lost and powerless to change. Family counseling helps to foster open and honest discussion about conflict in a safe and calm environment.

Our family counselors focus on providing a place for families to come and sort through conflict and tension to resolve issues. Whether you have a family with young children, teenager or adults, family counseling can help you restore peace and understanding in your family.

  • Loss

Addiction Counseling

Manage Addiction

Addiction and substance abuse counseling in an individual and private setting can help you better sort through your addiction, habits, and how to make changes in your life to manage addiction. Our goal is to help reduce the grip of addiction habits and get back to living a life in balance. This can be done through incorporating different approaches, including managing stress in healthy ways, improving relationships, healing from past trauma, as well as practical tools to help break the cycle.

Our counselors have special certifications in addiction counseling for alcohol and drug abuse, as well as sexual addictions. Addiction, whether it is substances, alcohol, sex or another addiction, is difficult to overcome on your own. Our counseling sessions focus on sorting through the addiction cycle, identifying triggers, and making action plans and steps to abstain and stop relapse. There are also effective medications now available to assist in the process.

EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR is used to help treat PTSD and other difficult and complicated effects of trauma and overwhelming life experiences, including anxiety and phobias. The therapy process used in EMDR asks you to explore distressing or difficult memories while using eye movements to help you mentally reprocess the emotions related to the memory. EMDR also focuses on replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts to encourage mental health and change habits related to traumatic experiences.

Hypnotherapy Services

Deep relaxation to work through core issues

Therapists who receive specialized training may use hypnotherapy with clients experiencing symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, and others. Hypnotherapy can be a stand alone or in addition to other treatments the person may be receiving. This type of approach uses different techniques including guided relaxation and changes in focus and/or attention to assist the client in gaining better awareness of the core causes of symptoms. By gaining better awareness the person and practitioner are able to work toward healing. This approach may not be the best fit for all clients, but many have found it very helpful. In our office, John Knott, LCSW, has trained in this technique.
