If you’re feeling overwhelmed or uncertain, you are not alone. Everyone faces obstacles in life. Our fast-paced, busy lifestyles make many of us feel like we’ve lost control of emotions, thoughts and behaviors. As you juggle your career, relationship and family responsibilities, you may have stopped taking proper care of yourself. Instead, your time may be spent worrying about the vitality of your romantic relationship, the duties of becoming a parent or your teenager’s behavior. If you have experienced a devastating loss, you may be especially vulnerable to emotional pain. When we deal with stress, it’s not uncommon to cope by turning to unhealthy patterns of eating or abusing drugs and alcohol.
Even though life issues are quite common, it is often difficult to effectively treat yourself, your relationship or your child’s behavior on your own. The good news is that with the expert help of a therapist at Life Balance Counseling, you can find the support you, your relationship or your family needs in order to feel happy, peaceful and resilient.
Find Stability In Life With Individualized Holistic Treatment
At Life Balance Counseling, our therapists are entirely focused on personal needs. During safe, compassionate and nonjudgmental sessions, our therapists tailor-create a personalized strategy composed of therapy methods, techniques and tools that directly address each client’s concerns and interests.
Sessions typically focus on using the strength within to make positive life changes. Instead of relying on prescription medication, our therapists focus on taking a deeper look at thought processes in order to ease stressful thoughts and painful emotions. In sessions, you will have the opportunity to talk about complex issues and work with your therapist to develop, implement and monitor a plan designed to help you reach your personal, life, family and relationship goals.
If you and your partner are drifting apart because communication between the two of you has deteriorated, your therapist can teach the two of you how to effectively listen to each other, regulate your emotions and establish helpful boundaries.
If you are worried about the well-being of your teenager, he or she can learn strategies and tools to help mitigate symptoms of depression, anxiety and mood swings that may be contributing to his or her problematic behavior at school, low self-esteem or self-harming.
If you need help losing weight, your therapist can help you identify your emotional eating patterns, implement mindful eating strategies and teach you healthy, alternative ways to cope with daily stress.
At Life Balance Counseling, our therapists draw from traditional as well as more interactive forms of therapy, such as journaling, art therapy or music therapy, to help you find relief and sustain your therapy goals. In addition, our therapists regularly include breathing techniques and guided imagery into sessions, which promote feelings of calmness and can help you feel more present during sessions.
