What We Treat

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. 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 clients 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.
