Individual Counseling

Are you feeling broken, down or depressed? Do you find it difficult to enjoy tasks you previously enjoyed? Is life draining and causing you distress?

Often times we find so many reasons to put off our healing. We always think, "Tomorrow will be better." or "I'll set aside time." But time eludes us.

In today's fast paced world, we are often so busy taking care of others, we put ourselves last. Addressing our own needs and taking care of ourselves is commonly placed last. However, after so long it begins to affect our relationships, our commitments and our overall functionality.

Individual Counseling can be that time for yourself you have neglected for so long. You don't have to keep feeling this way! You can feel better and change your life by taking this first step and building a better you.

Marriage Counseling/Enricment and Premarital Counseling

Are you looking to enrich the experience with your new partner? Pre-marital Counseling is brief and informative.

These sessions are conducted by Amber Summers, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

Marriage Therapy or Couples Therapy is brief, solution focused and specific with attainable therapeutic goals to help couples resolve conflicts and improve their relationships.

Marriage Enrichment is for those who feel like they have a “good” marriage but feel like they want more. If you want a SIGNIFICANT marriage, marriage enrichment counseling is brief, solution focused and helps couples communicate more and have greater intimacy and connection.

Play Therapy

Play is the child’s language and toys are the child’s words. According to the Association for Play Therapy,

Play therapy helps children:

  • Become more responsible for behaviors and develop more successful strategies.
  • Develop new and creative solutions to problems.
  • Develop respect and acceptance of self and others.
  • Learn to experience and express emotion.
  • Cultivate empathy and respect for thoughts and feelings of others.
  • Learn new social skills and relational skills with family.
  • Develop self-efficacy and thus a better assuredness about their abilities.

Art Therapy

According to the American Art Therapy Association, “Art therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.”

Art therapy uses the creative process to explore underlying issues through the use of art materials. In an art therapy session, there is a focus on the process of making art, rather than the finished product. Art therapy does not require an individual to be artistic, and is appropriate for individuals of all ages. It is used to further explore, for better understanding and processing, when words are not enough.

Brainspotting

A Bit About Brainspotting

Brainspotting is a leading edge neurobiological therapeutic tool to locate, focus, and process trauma, anxiety, depression, and emotional pain. This effective process can quickly release symptoms by processing in deep parts of the brain.

Have you ever noticed yourself simply gazing or staring at some spot on the floor or wall or ceiling? Have you noticed yourself looking away or up or somewhere else when really thinking about something you are saying or want to say, particularly when the subject is loaded emotionally? As a therapist, I notice this all the time. Clients often become unnecessarily self-conscious about it and force themselves to make eye contact with me. While their gaze continues to drift back to these spots, they do not allow themselves to hold the spot. What they don’t realize is that rather than avoiding eye contact, they are intuitively helping themselves to process by accessing deep neural connections and memories in the subcortical brain.

Brainspotting is a powerful tool for therapy to help process traumas, negative cognitions, difficult emotions, and upsetting events by focusing your visual field on a spot that stimulates processing. It is a “physiological approach with psychological consequences” that allows us to access our self-healing potential via bypassing the thinking of the neocortex and “promotes organization and integration through coalescence of hitherto separated information files”; “a Brainspot is a stored oculomotor orientation to a traumatic experience which has failed to integrate” (Corrigan & Grand 2013).
