Do you ever wonder how you ended up where you are or why someone else treats you a certain way? Understanding yourself and others is often the first step to lasting change. Maybe you are feeling like you are missing out on some of the joy life has to offer or you are having trouble healing from a divorce, loss of a loved one, career trouble, or trauma. And although loved ones and information can be helpful, working with a trained counselor who cares about your individual concerns and understands change and healing is needed to help you forge new ways of being that are specific to you. At Truth Counseling, you will experience a non-judgmental, trusting, and caring atmosphere as we work together to help you become more of the person you were created to be.
If you want more intimacy in your marriage and long for a deeper emotional connection with your spouse, marriage counseling can help. Maybe you have gotten into some poor relational dynamics that have gone on for years and you need help finding each other again. Or maybe trust has been broken with an affair, or your relationship is wrought with anger or resentment. Whatever the case, you can find the closeness with your spouse that you desire and it is possible for love, trust, and closeness to be restored.
The personal loss of divorce and death can result in symptoms of depression, poor health, loneliness, work inefficiency, insomnia, memory difficulties, and substance abuse. If you find yourself in the midst of one of these life-changing losses, you are in a grieving process which includes denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and ultimately acceptance. However, getting through the process alone is not easy and makes one feel as if they are on an emotional rollercoaster. Being intentional about getting the support you need is something that can make a world of difference in decreasing the symptoms and life changes of loss, while making you more capable of handling the emotional turmoil. Let us help you get through your grief. There is a healthier way than just believing that time heals all wounds.

Trauma & Abuse Recovery
Major life disturbances, abuse, and trauma can affect a person’s sense of self. Relief from anxiety, depression, triggering events, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can help you free yourself from living in the past. Therapy can access material that is dysfunctionally stored in the brain and reprocess the trauma to an adaptive resolution. Basically, what this means is that therapy can work to heal the brain from trauma, giving you relief and helping you to feel happier and more vibrant.
Relational Abuse Recovery
Emotional, verbal, and physical abuse, as well as neglect, leave emotional wounds, but the right therapy can lead to healing and freedom. Learning to have personal boundaries in relationships can stop the cycles of abuse.
Narcissistic Abuse Recovery
If you have been involved in a business or close relationship with someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, you are most likely bewildered by the contradictions in their behaviors. You may suffer from anxiety caused by walking on eggshells due to their need for constant admiration one minute and the rage, coldness, and shame they project the next. If you want to heal, disengage from the narcissists in your life, or learn to live with them in better harmony, please give me a call.
Do you deal with chronic headaches or migraines or have a child or loved who does?
Being in constant pain can leave you feeling isolated and lonely. Also, watching your child suffer without knowing how to help can leave you feeling helpless and overwhelmed.
Even if you believe that your headaches are caused by biological or environmental factors only, finding a solution to pain through medical management can be frustrating. Being shuffled from one doctor to the next in an attempt to find a solution is difficult. A counselor can help you or your loved one focus on breaking the cycle of disability associated with pain and improve your overall functioning, while navigating the medical options available.
Sometimes pain is a combination of biological and interpersonal factors, can begin with an injury or emotional trauma and results in pain escalation due to stress. Whatever the cause, counseling helps one to manage and understand their condition, while addressing the stress and loneliness that come with chronic pain. If you are a teenager or adult dealing with chronic headaches or pain, let us help you devise a plan toward medical health while developing the coping skills you need to return to normal functioning.
