Restoring your true identity, establishing healthy relational patterns, and empowering whole-life transformation.
Welcome to your NEW LIFE!
Individual therapy is a joint process between a therapist and a person in therapy. Common goals of therapy can be to inspire change or improve quality of life. Several frameworks based on the foundations of attachment, psychodynamic and spiritual transformation theories are used to addresses relational trauma, helps individuals heal from past relational wounds, and to discover their identity and purpose.
We focus on a specific problem (i.e. sexual difficulties, infidelity, jealousy, communication concerns). There is active participation on the part of the therapist in treating the relationship itself, rather than each individual separately. We utilize solution-focused, change-oriented interventions early on in treatment.
Spiritual transformation is the process by which Christ is formed in us …for the glory of God, for the abundance of our own lives, and for the sake of others (Galatians 4:19; Romans 8:29; Romans 12:1, 2). The possibility that human beings can be transformed to such an extent that they image Christ is central to the message of the gospel and therefore it is central to the mission of the Church. Spiritual transformation in the lives of redeemed people is a testimony to the power of the Gospel and it results in an increasing capacity to discern and do the will of God (Romans 12:2).

Unexpected Mood Swings
Many mental health conditions can cause severe shifts in mood. They’re often referred to as mood disorders. They include the following:
Major depressive disorder (MDD)
Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD)
Family Member Conflict
Family conflict refers to active opposition between family members. … Conflicts may involve different combinations of family members: it can be conflict within the couple or between parents and children or, again, between siblings. We believe resolving family conflict is a two-fold approach. First, is to determine what has caused the current crisis and what family members are prepared to do to reach an acceptable resolution. Throughout this process, the second component of conflict resolution takes place; learning to communicate effectively ensuring there is not any misunderstanding or assumptions that develop.
Addiction treatment commonly consists of a combination of group and individual therapy sessions that focus on teaching those in recovery the skills needed to get and stay sober as well as how to navigate various situations without turning to drugs or alcohol. We use a variety of techniques to support clients overcoming addiction, we mainly utilize motivational interviewing (MI). MI is a method of resolving ambivalence in recovering individuals to allow them to embrace their treatment efforts to best change their problematic substance use behavior.
Stress & Anxiety
Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Stress is your body’s reaction to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline. Too much unhealthy stress leads to anxiety. When a person regularly feels disproportionate levels of anxiety, it might become a medical disorder. Anxiety disorders form a category of mental health diagnoses that lead to excessive nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worry.
Infidelity is unfaithfulness in a marriage or relationship. It can severely strain a relationship and the people involved. An affair can leave the other person feeling devastated, alone, betrayed, and confused. Sometimes, an affair ends a relationship. Other times, couples can repair the relationship. We use an array of techniques to support healing from infidelity :
Real change comes about through inner work, when we “attend to soul” and discover who we are. Only then can we can realize our potential for truth, power, creativity and satisfaction. I have explored deeply the relationship between personal therapy and spiritual growth, because they refer us to our innate capacity for wholeness. I found that they are connected by a middle stage of authenticity that brings our unique, compassionate self into true relationship with other people and the world.
A mental health disorder characterized by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life. Possible causes include a combination of biological, psychological, and social sources of distress. Increasingly, research suggests these factors may cause changes in brain function, including altered activity of certain neural circuits in the brain.
Childhood trauma can manifest itself within a person in a plethora of ways. Sometimes a person may not even realize that the problems they are dealing with mentally stem from trauma from their childhood. But childhood trauma is fairly common. Because children have sensitive psyches, the damage from said trauma can have everlasting effects on a person. Examples of some of the forms of trauma children can go through are:
Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.
Having parents that struggle with addiction
Witnessing family violence
