Life Issues (Adjustment)

These are issues that happen when there are circumstances in your life that you find difficult to accept and yet you cannot change them.  This can include loss of a loved one, divorce, change in health or even a change in employment.  When life doesn’t “work” the way we feel it should sometimes a counselor can help with the transition.

We work with people who are in need of short term and long term counseling.

Therapies Used:

                  DBT (Dialetic Behavioral Therapy)

This theory holds that when we want to change a behavior, we must not only change  the behavior,  but we must change the thinking or thought processes behind the behavior.  It further holds that there are times in which the behavior must change even when either the thought process cannot change or the environment which we find ourselves in will not change and therefore we need to adapt and learn how to accept the things.

It teaches mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation.  This has been found to be a promising intervention across clinical and non-clinical populations and many different settings.

This therapy can consist of DBT skill training in a group setting or other setting, DBT individual therapy, DBT phone coaching, and sometimes a consultation team.  Using this type of therapy first will give some initial relief while we continue to work on some of the other things that are needed.
