Faith-Based Counseling

Can restoration be done overnight? Certainly not, despite our anxious urgency to be made fully sanctified. The renewing of our individual hearts and wounds, our turning from brokenness and returning to God, and the restoration of broken families, marriages and physical bodies are all continual, painstaking work. We are here to walk along side of you during this process. We recognize that restoration is a beautiful process not only because of its outcome, but rather we will reflect the beauty of our redeeming creator.

When you change what you believe, it will change what you feel, what you think, and what you want, thus empowering you for the better. When your beliefs are based on the truth of God and you yield to that belief, then faith becomes active. “For by grace you have been saved through faith” Ephesians 2:8. Faith not only has the ability to change you in the middle of circumstances, but to change the circumstances as well. 

Spiritual counseling looks different for each individual. We value this process of healing and growth and will ensure that your spiritual journey matches up to your individual desires and needs. We think we are pretty easy to talk to and we would love to join you on your spiritual journey. God is good! 

EMDR

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy. It is an entire therapy model that has been proven to be highly effective for those who have experienced trauma. 

EMDR therapy is founded on the basis that our emotional well-being is interwoven with our physical (somatic) state. Therefore, EMDR employs a body-based technique called bilateral simulation (BLS) during which a therapist will guide a client through through eye movements, tones, or taps in order to move a memory that has been incorrectly stored to a more functional part of the brain.

During trauma our brain processes and stores memories incorrectly. This incorrect storage can lead to past memories feeling very present. Related or unrelated stimuli in the present can lead to clients reacting as they did at the time of trauma. The brain feels if the past disturbing event is happening currently.

EMDR therapy corrects this mis-storage so that the painful memories associated with the trauma lose their charge.The client can react to stimuli in the present without the past interfering. 

EMDR can be used for PTSD & trauma, regulating emotions and stress, depression, anxiety, psychotic disorders, attachment disorders, unexplained somatic symptoms, migraines, panic disorders, phobias, chronic pain, grief and loss, and more. EMDR can be used with any age group. If you have any questions about EMDR and want to learn if this would be a good fit for you, contact us, we would love to talk!

CBT/Talk Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a problem-focused, action-oriented style of talk-therapy that teaches you practical ways to identify, challenge, and replace unhelpful response patterns with adaptive, healthy thoughts, feelings, and behavioral patterns to reach one's desired goals.

CBT will promote self-awareness and emotional intelligence by teaching you to “read” your emotions and distinguish healthy from unhealthy feelings, helping you understand how distorted perceptions and thoughts contribute to painful feelings. 

CBT can be used to treat depression, anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, severe mental illness, eating disorders, marital problems, drug and alcohol use, relationship stress, transition specific barriers, ADHD and more. 

Gottman Therapy 

The Gottman Method is an approach to couples therapy that includes a thorough assessment of the couple’s relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an approach to psychotherapy that identifies and addresses multiple sub-personalities or families within each person’s mental system. These sub-personalities consist of wounded parts and painful emotions such as anger and shame, and parts that try to control and protect the person from the pain of the wounded parts. The sub-personalities are often in conflict with each other and with one’s core Self, a concept that describes the confident, compassionate, whole person that is at the core of every individual. IFS focuses on healing the wounded parts and restoring mental balance and harmony by changing the dynamics that create discord among the sub-personalities and the Self.

IFS was developed by psychologist Richard Schwartz. In his work as a family therapist, Schwartz began to observe patterns in how people described their inner lives: “What I heard repeatedly were descriptions of what they often called their "parts"—the conflicted subpersonalities that resided within them,” Schwartz says. He began to conceive of the mind as a family, and the parts as family members interacting with one another. Exploring how these components functioned with one another was the foundation for IFS and the idea of the core Self.

Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). The main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. 

One of the core components to DBT is mindfulness, helping clients focus on “living in the moment,” by becoming skilled at identifying whats really happening inside of us, such as thoughts, sensations, beliefs, and impulses. Many therapists will also focus on the five senses as well while using this modality. Many of the skills learned in DBT will help you slow down when you are in emotional pain and utilize healthy coping skills. Other components of this modality include distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotional regulation.
