At lifenliving, we provide individual, children and family counseling services. From family counseling, marriage counseling, career counseling, mental health counseling and individual counseling for children and adults.
Counseling for Adults and Children
Individual counseling helps people deal with a broad range of issues such as grief, compulsions, anxiety, mood, adjustment to change, and other concerns. For children, we use a therapeutic approach with interactions using toys, games to provide therapy in a non-threatening and relaxed environment.
Family relationships are complex and interactions can be difficult for a wide variety of reasons. At Lifenliving, we help families with a broad range of issues, such as conflicts between parents and children, issues related to grief, divorce and other concerns.
Couples counseling can strengthen relationships and resolve conflict. We help in building communication, rebuild lost trust, financial disagreements and resolve other problems.
Why take counseling?
Adjustment disorder is an emotional and behavioral reaction that develops after life stressors, and which is stronger or greater than what would be expected for the type of event that occurred.
Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad. But these feelings are usually short-lived and pass within a couple of days. When you have depression, it interferes with daily life and causes pain for both you and those who care about you. Depression is a common but serious illness.
Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety caused by a stressful event (such as speaking in public or a first date), anxiety disorders can get worse if they are not treated.
Conflict resolution is an important part of any relationship at home, work or school. Conflict resolution plays a vital role in allowing two people to reconcile differing needs. Unfortunately, when conflict is handled poorly, it can cause distress in the relationship.
There are two types of trauma — physical and mental. Physical trauma includes the body’s response to serious injury and threat. Mental trauma includes frightening thoughts and painful feelings. They are the mind’s response to serious injury. Mental trauma can produce strong feelings. It can also produce extreme behavior; such as intense fear or helplessness, withdrawal or detachment, lack of concentration, irritability, sleep disturbance, aggression, hyper vigilance (intensely watching for more distressing events), or flashbacks (sense that event is reoccurring).
