People seek counseling for numerous reasons but the thing they usually have in common is some level of emotional or behavioral distress. At Healing Tree, we seek to help you find the healthiest version of yourself so you can live the best life possible.

Therapy and Counseling Services

Individual Therapy

We consistently struggle with issues like stress, anxiety, depression, work/life balance, vulnerability and grief. This is where individual therapy comes in. It involves meeting with a therapist one-on-one for the purpose of reducing problematic behaviors, thoughts and feelings. An individual treatment plan is developed for each client based on their particular needs. You and your therapist will discuss the best course of action regarding how often you will meet for therapy. It is common to meet at least once a week and an average session is about 45 to 50 minutes.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy focuses on the problems existing in the relationship between two people. Counseling helps couples, married or not, understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Couples therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and even argue in a healthier way. Yes, even couples in healthy relationships have arguments.

Family Therapy

The goal of family counseling is to help family members improve communication, solve family problems, and understand and handle special family situations. Some common family issues are: divorce, death, blended families and family transitions. This is also a great place to learn new parenting skills and overall communication strategies for the whole family. It is not uncommon to implement both individual and family therapy to achieve optimal goals for an individual.

We’re All Struggling With Something

Anxiety

Is your stomach trying to tell you something?

Butterflies in the stomach.  Knots in the chest.  A pounding heart.  These are all physical symptoms that can accompany anxiety.  Anxiety is a very common feeling that usually comes with something “new” or “unexpected”.  If you find that this feeling surfaces more than normal or is impacting your ability to get through your day to day activities, it may be time to start some therapy.  Trust me, life doesn’t have to be all about where the next bathroom is located.

Ongoing Loneliness

 

Addiction

Getting sober is hard.  The desire to change is just the first step.

No, but really, getting sober is hard and a life long journey.  Sobriety can be achieved, but doing it alone can be daunting.  As noted by my best friend 11 years sober this year, “I have to wake up every day and make the decision to not be myself.  I have to decide to be sober and a better human being that what my authentic self wants of me”  Addiction can come in the classic forms we all know about such as drugs and alcohol, but can also come in other forms such as sex, gambling and food.  Stumble or fall, we will be there alongside you.

Teenagers

“WE’RE all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.” – BREAKFAST CLUB

Can you remember how hard it was to be a teenager? Trying to find independence. Trying to understand yourself.  Really liking that one person who may or may not even know you exist. You have parents, school, peers, societal pressures and new life transitions. We love helping spunky teens figure this challenging part of life out. Believe it or not, there will be many times we can use a bit of trust, a bunch of compassion and a dose of humor to help navigate this tricky time.

Depression

You don’t have to own stock in Puffs Plus.

We all know that depression can look like sadness but did you know it can also wear the face of fatigue, sleeplessness, aches and pains, concentration issues and sense of being lost?  If you find some of these symptoms have hijacked your ability to live your life the way you would like, it is time to schedule some therapy.  Not only will you have the added bonus of support from a therapist, but we can help you identify solutions, develop coping skills and tear down the barriers that keep you from implementation.

Greif/Loss

“Give yourself time, Arnold. It gets better… But, Arnold, it never goes away. You can work longer hours, adopt a son, fight with me, whatever… it’ll still be there. But that’s all right, it becomes a part of you, like learning to wear a ring or a pair of eyeglasses. You get used to it. And that’s good. It’s good, because it makes sure you don’t forget. You don’t want to forget him, do you?” – TORCH SONG TRILOGY

Grief is the feeling word we assign to a whole bunch of feelings that come with losing something significant from life.  This can be a human, pet, a relationship, or even a picture of your grandpa. If it was important to you and you no longer have it, grief can pop its head out. I have oftentimes told my client that grief is one of the more difficult feelings, as it is usually not just one feeling but a whole bunch all at once. My visual for grief is a five year old painting with the watercolor tray. Every color is used to leave the page sopping wet and a blob of brown. We are totally ready to help you identify and separate each and every color (feeling) through your process.

Couples Counseling

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.” The Notebook

Couples, married or not, may decide to start couples counseling for a variety of reasons. Oftentimes it is to help improve communication, bring blended families together, life-stage issues and yes, sex. I oftentimes tell people and couples that therapy should be looked at as an oil change. It’s what keeps your car going and in good working order. We need to decrease the stigma around couples counseling so that couples are more willing to come as a form of maintenance. This will help ward off waiting until there is crisis. Human growth is hard. Human growth with another person amps up the challenge. Come work with one of our amazing therapists to help learn and grow with your partner in crime to help create the healthiest and best version of your relationship.

ADHD/ADD

Do you have lists for your lists?

Have you ever wondered why you can’t seem to remember things as well as friends or become easily disorganized or forgetful? ADHD has two categories: inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity. Lets’ break down those categories a bit further.

Common Symptoms of Inattention:

  • Difficulty keeping focus
  • Easily distracted
  • Difficulty following instructions carefully
  • Failure to complete tasks
  • Being disorganized

Common Symptoms of Hyperactivity:

  • Excessive restlessness or fidgeting
  • Inability to remain quiet or seated
  • Excessive and inappropriate talking
  • Difficulty waiting in line or taking turns

Common Symptoms of Impulsivity:

  • Interrupting others or social intrusiveness
  • Inability to delay gratification

If any of these apply to you or a family member, schedule time with one of our therapists here at Healing Tree to see if this is a possible diagnosis. We will help get you connected to medication management, if necessary. We will also utilize, cognitive-behavioral methods, time-management strategies, along with psychoeducational training with parents/caregivers. We strive to provide strategies that reduce behaviors and provide structure for the home. We pride ourselves in collaborating, with the client’s permission, to those in work and school situations when necessary.
