Let’s just be honest. Adult-life is messy and full of unexpected surprises. As an adult, we are expected to juggle a plethora of things, all the while maintaining balance and overall well-being. A lot of times, that is not the way it works out. At Mindful Counseling, we strive to meet each person where they are at, identifying concerns for them and creating a unique plan to help them reach their goals. This may look like gaining balance back into your lives. Or it may be working through an event that took you totally by surprise. Whatever you are facing, you are not alone. Let Mindful Counseling be a support for you-providing a compassionate, non-judgmental environment where you can process through your emotions and thoughts and learn effective tools to help you help yourself!
While we can help guide you through any issue you may be facing; here is some information on common issues we encounter while working with adults.
Anxiety is one of the top issues we see clients struggle with most. When working with anxiety, we strive to spend time understanding the client’s unique concerns surrounding it. We work with clients to identify triggers, learn coping skills, and learn ways of attacking the anxiety. This may include identifying and challenging thoughts triggering anxiety, learning physiological and mental coping skills, and psycho-education surrounding anxiety, among others.
When faced with depression, clients will learn how to recognize and manage their unique depressive symptoms. Clients will learn to identify and challenge thoughts triggering their depression and learn how to be proactive in battling the depression. The approach is always gentle and supportive, allowing clients to feel safe and secure while going through this process.
PTSD can be impactful in many ways. A person’s emotional, mental, and even physical state can be altered. When working with clients battling PTSD, we first work to hear the story our clients are so bravely willing to share with us. With this information, we can decide on a treatment plan unique to the client’s experiences. This may be with the help of EMDR, the leading trauma therapy, or other modalities proven effective in treating this disorder. Whatever way we go about it, client care and reaching client goals is our top priority.
At Mindful Counseling, we strive to help clients improve communication, address problems that have created stress in the relationship, and deepen understanding of one another’s perspective. We work to help clients learn conflict resolution skills and define expectations of self and other. Through a deeper understanding and awareness into each other, can come hope and possibility for a successful relationship.
Bereavement can be one of life’s most painful experiences, and it certainly does not have to be faced alone. When supporting clients experiencing grief and loss, we provide a space to explore the varied emotions that may arise. Within a warm and supportive environment, we support clients in honoring their unique experiences and collaboratively identify individualized skills for coping.
Counselors on staff help families increase healthy communication skills and learn effective ways of handling conflict. We strive to create an atmosphere of respect, encouraging each member to process their unique concerns and perspective.
