Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic events. Often these experiences leave people with feelings of powerlessness, shame, depression and fear, even years after the trauma was initially experienced. EMDR and ART therapies are a highly effective tool designed to reprocess traumatic memories in the brain, reducing PTSD symptoms and healing triggers of stress response.
Does it seem as if you are fighting the same fight over and over again, that you try and reach out and your partner pulls further away? Each time you try and get close it backfires and things just get worse? Or maybe this time you pull away because fighting isn't working either. If this is the case, you may be stuck in a deeply ingrained conflict style and need new tools to find your way out and back to each other. Emotion Focused Couples Therapy does just that. EFT helps couples stop fighting, close in on emotional distance, reconnect and feel love again, repair fractured trust from betrayal, be heard and seen and express needs and feelings in a healthy and productive way.
Parenting is challenging, there is no "one size fits' all when it comes to raising kids, especially if your child has special needs or other concerns where often mainstream advice doesn't apply. This is when specialized counseling with focus on parenting tools can be helpful to gain insights on behavior management to reduce engagement in power struggles and refocus on positive and meaningful family interactions. In addition, further insights into the keys of positive step parenting can help foster a meaningful family experience in blended families, reducing conflict distress, creating healthy boundaries and communication, and promoting second marriage success.
