Rebuilding your life after divorce

Every situation is different, yet divorces have one thing in common – change.

• How do I deal with making new friends?
• What do I have in common with my old friends?
• Do I need to go back to work and if so, what should I do?
• How do I allocate my time between work, family, hobbies, and home responsibilities?
• How do I handle my feelings about life as I knew it?
• How do I go about creating a new life at my age?

In counseling we examine, one by one, all of the pertinent issues affecting your life right NOW. Together we will create a plan to manage each issue until it is resolved through learning new coping strategies and life skills.

Coping with life stress

Coping With Life Stress

Sometimes our daily schedule gets overwhelming. We have too much to do and too little time in which to do it. Our skills in prioritizing are not working and everything feels like it has to get done now. Or maybe we want to make a career change and are unsure how to implement this change. These are all elements of stress. Together we can work on a program that will help you better deal with and accomplish your personal goals in a timely fashion.

Improving personal relationships

Improving Personal Relationships

Are you thinking:

• Is this all there is?”
• How can I make my relationship more interesting and more meaningful?
• Is this relationship deeply satisfying for both of us?
• Is intimacy is lacking?
• How do I get that ‘in love’ feeling back?

Most breakdowns in relationship are due to a lack of effective communication skills. I teach you how to express your innermost feelings to your partner in ways that your partner can receive them. You will learn new effective listening skills that create depth and intimacy in your relationship. Learning the difference between needs and wants is crucial in maintaining a healthy relationship between you and your partner.

Improving self image

Improving Self-Image

Are you feeling:

• You are not good enough as you are?
• No matter what area you improve upon, it is not enough?
• Do you need to be taller, thinner, more affluent, or just different than who you are?

In counseling you can examine your strengths and weaknesses to help you create a more solid self-image. You will learn how to use your strengths to build a higher level of self-esteem.

Parenting issues

Parenting Issues

• Are you having trouble with discipline in your home?
• Are these problems currently involving the court system?
• Are you not sure how to deal with your child’s new stage of development?
• Do you need help coping with your child’s addiction problem?
• Do you need help talking to your children about sex, birth control, and possible health risks involved with having unprotected sex?

Counseling sessions are a good place to express your parental fears and concerns as well as to learn new ways to communicate with your family.

Sexual concerns in relationships

Sexual Concerns in Relationship, Straight or Gay

• Are you having trouble communicating about sex in your intimate relationship?
