Depression and anxiety are both feelings that tend to feed on themselves. You feel bad and begin to wonder if you will ever feel good again. You get scared that things will never get back to normal and that just makes you feel worse. Learn about the common causes of depression and anxiety and develop the coping skills necessary to get your life back. Change is possible.
Unwanted sexual behavior can be difficult to talk about, but those dealing with sexual issues know that the deep pain, isolation, and shame that come with behavior that feels out of control. Whether pornography, a “too strong” sex drive, extra-marital affairs, or excessive masturbation, many types of sexual behaviors can cause us problems. I can help you restore sex to a healthy, productive role in your life. Remember: our conversations are private.
Today men are expected to cope successfully with work and home challenges that are unique to this generation. The stress can drive men to behavior that they never expected – angry outbursts, pornography, alcohol/drug use, and affairs to name a few. You can learn healthy ways to deal with the stress without damaging your work or home relationships.
All relationships go through difficult times.
Couples Counseling can help if you are:
• Not connecting like you used to
• Feeling more like a roommate than a lover
• Continually fighting over the same issues
• Angry more often than happy
• Looking to other people for affection
• Forgetting what first attracted you
• Not sure if you want to stay or go
• Worrying how marital difficulties are affecting the kids
Even the best parents can find raising children to be a challenge. Arguments, disobedience, and school issues are just a few of the things that can exasperate any parent. Step-parenting can be especially challenging. I can help you with strategies to raise each of your children in a way that is productive and satisfying. I will work closely with your child's school to coordinate services and assure that services align.
Sometimes "marriage counseling" seems like it might be more than you actually need but, at the same time, it seems like your marriage just isn't what you want it to be. A "Marriage Tune-Up" can be helpful for resolving ongoing disagreements, for learning new skills, and for adding the spark back into your relationship. Schedule it in the evening and go to dinner afterward. I've developed a reputation for making great restaurant recommendations!
