Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or any other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.
Individual therapy involves a deep and personal focus on the aspects of life that are causing emotional distress. We strive to help individuals discover their patterns of unhealthy behavior and cope with pain and trauma. Through individual therapy, you will gain perspective and a clearer understanding of your tendencies. You will identify your long-term goals and learn how to move toward them.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
DBT is a skills-based therapy approach built on the foundation of mindfulness. It is designed to give clients the right tools to recognize emotional dysregulation, relationship struggles, and crisis situations as they are happening so that they can be the most effective version of themselves and do what the situation calls for. These skills are applicable in almost all situations and have been shown to work by numerous mental health specialists.
EMDR is a specialized therapy that enables individuals to heal from trauma and emotional distress from their past by reopening and thereby processing the experience. Similar to removing a sliver of wood after the skin already healed above it, this therapy removes the negative belief that an individual holds about themselves, eradicating it completely from the inside out instead of just covering it up with emotional coping mechanisms. All of our therapists are trained in practicing EMDR.
At Roots Counseling we believe that every person has the ability to create their own ‘life worth living’. In DBT group therapy, individuals learn specific skills they can apply to their lives on their way to creating that better future. These skills help clients to be mindful, problem solve, cope with crisis, manage interpersonal conflicts, and set and achieve goals.
Romantic relationships are an amazing and wonderful thing. They have the capacity to bring great joy—and also great pain. Sometimes challenges arise that threaten to destroy the relationships that our clients have nurtured and built. Roots Counseling is committed to finding the root of the issue in order to help heal broken hearts.
