Here’s how we can help
Relationships can be challenging and it’s hard to be fully prepared. We work with couples, contemplating, dating, engaged, or married, experiencing conflict or hoping to avoid future conflict. Our therapists are also experienced in working with families on parenting and family issues that involve generational gaps, communication, and concerning behaviors.
Relationships of any type can be challenging at the beginning, middle, or even the end. They can include intimate ones such as romantic, pre-marital, marital, and divorcing; family such as parent to child, sibling, and blended; professional such as employee to manager and coworkers; and other relationships that include friends, classmates, teammates and neighbors. Getting help shows that you care enough to feel better about the relationship and how it’s going.
To help you feel differently about your relationship, it’s not necessary that you and your partner both attend. In fact it’s pretty common that only one person considers therapy to be a viable option while the other person would rather duck down and hope for the best.
Conflict is an integral part of being in relationship. Sometimes the distress is internal and experienced by one partner or it can be open conflict between partners. Whatever it may be, learning how to communicate during conflict is important to growing as a couple and as individuals who have a need to be known.
There can be times when it’s desirable that more than one person receives the benefit of therapy. Family therapy involves a group of people, often living under the same roof, who care about improving a situation at home or in the group. Therapy can include a range of different aged individuals from older children to adults, as long as everyone can be involved helpfully.
When lives change, paths differ, and individual goals do not match, perhaps the healthiest option is parting ways and going for a HEALTHY DIVORCE. Typically when people think of divorce, they think of negativity and hostility.
Making sound decisions, as one might expect, is particularly difficult when one is in a highly combative state of mind. However, at Feeling Good Wellness Center, our aim is to help families experience the positive outcomes of divorce.
Changes, Loss, and Grief
Change is a part of life, and though it can bring excitement or sadness, much of the time change can be painful. Sometimes, changes are referred to as life transitions and include moving away for job or school, changes in employment, breaks in relationships, and any hugely altering events that involve birth, life-threatening illness, or death. As humans we don’t tend to react well to most changes. In fact, it is a part of life that change tends to be hard.
Socio-Emotional Concerns for School-Aged Children
Our therapists are compassionate and warm, experienced in helping students feel better in their school settings. There will be interactive role plays, demonstration of scenarios, and use of games and toys. Children learn improved social skills through age-appropriate play therapy methods combined with the TEAM-CBT framework. Utilization of talk therapy increases with the age and maturity of the individual client.
