All couples have ups and downs in their relationship. There is no avoiding them, but counseling can not only help you through the tough times, it can also prevent some unnecessary bumps in the road. It can be difficult for both parties to admit they need outside help, and it is not unusual for at least one party to refuse to acknowledge that it is needed. LifeSong provides a safe, nonbiased place for couples to work through their problems in a healthy way, being fully aware that not everyone is happy to be there. The good news is that once the couple gets started, frequently both parties find it quite comfortable, helpful, and non-threatening.
If you are preparing for marriage, pre-marital counseling is a great way to start the journey of life together. It helps couples focus on important areas of life that may be overlooked outside of counseling: finances, family of origin, chores, traditions, religious views, communication styles, etc. Whether you are married, engaged, or in a serious dating relationship, call Brenda to learn some practical ways to make your relationship healthier and more enjoyable... skills and toptics starting today that will still be relevent years down the road.
Family... It is firmly rooted in the past, present, and future of everyone. Families sometimes have to acknowledge weaknesses in order to grow stronger. Think of it as a complex machine. Only when it demonstrates a problem does it get the attention it needs in order to be made stronger. Brenda understands that family is important, but it is not always easy. LifeSong is a safe place to work on your family - to learn new skills and gain new insights on how to work together to make your family stronger than you ever thought possible. Brenda would be honored if you to allow her a glimpse into your family in order to help you become a family who excels in safety, security, hope, love, and trust.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy approach that has proven to be an effective treatment for trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It includes a set of standardized protocols which incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches, all working together for your benefit. Imagine the ability to push the reset button for your brain, particularly when it comes to traumatic events. EMDR can help you begin to think about the trauma with a new, desensitized perspective. This gives you the ability to work through the trauma, heal, and move past it rather than retraumatize yourself every time it comes to mind. Call Brenda or schedule an appointment today to determine if you are a well-suited for EMDR therapy.
