Do you need Depression and Anxiety treatment? Do you find yourself in bed all day? Do you find simple tasks difficult to do? Do you find life is hopeless? Does your worry control your life and do you feel that you are always tense? Do you feel that you have low self-esteem and believe that "I am worthless?"

PTSD/ Traumas

Living with PTSD is never pleasant. It affects personal relationships and can limit experiences that may have otherwise been enjoyed. The fear and stress that comes with constant flashbacks, memories and dreams of the traumatic event can lead to depression and anxiety disorders that only compound the problems experienced on a daily basis.

If you think someone you love may be suffering from PTSD it is important to find a knowledgeable counselor and medical professionals and get them help immediately. Don't let them suffer alone for another day!

Anger Management

We've all felt it; that intense feeling of anger that seems to grip us out of the blue. Many times feelings of anger can frustrate us because although it happens quickly, once the wave of anger has subsided, it can take a long time to feel like you're back to normal.

As you learn how to control your anger, it is important to understand your feelings. Although everyone experiences anger, it is not necessary to lash out because of it. Feelings of anger are a completely normal part of life, much like feelings of happiness, love or sadness.

The only reason anger is considered "dangerous" is because when it is left unchecked, it can turn into rage. How do you know if your anger is out of control? Do you find yourself literally shaking with anger? Do you feel that you can't think rationally and resolve the issue? It is important to remember that it is OK to be angry; however, anger is not a free pass to act however you want to act. There are the ways to handle your anger.

Does counseling work?

Dr. Duncan said in his book, "the Heroic Client," "Therapy is about twice as efficacious as placebo and about four times better than no treatment at all.... Therapy works." He also said, "60 percent or more of clients coming to their first session report improvement in the presenting problem since making the appointment." This may be an anticipation of "finally something would change."

Dr. Olson cited a national survey with 492 clients who receive marriage and family counseling.

  • 83% of the clients felt the therapeutic goals had been achieved
  • 89% felt their emotional health had improved
