The therapeutic experience is about journeying through those moments in time and learning how to integrate our life events into our understanding of who we are, to communicate that understanding to others, and to develop toward our ideals.
NHisMage counseling and consulting services works with individuals, couples, and families to manage depression, anxiety, and other mood issues, cope with ADHD, heal from grief/loss, sexual and other traumas, resolve marriage and family issues, explore spirituality, and learn to manage a variety of symptoms.
That may include exploring the relationship between past and present life experiences, learning how to reduce anxiety and trauma symptoms, linking emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, improving organization, developing healthier communication, or integrating spirituality.
If you are willing to take that journey and allow me to walk with you, I would be honored to offer my support.
