Addictions and substance use disorders can negatively impact all aspects of your life. Whether you’re the person struggling with the substance use disorder or you’re a loved one trying to support them without enabling their dependencies, addiction is a disease that requires treatment and relies on the support of a network of professionals, including therapists. Therapy can be an important part of recovery and relapse prevention plans for individuals with substance use disorders, and talking to a therapist can help the loved ones of addicts to navigate these difficult situations and work to ensure their own needs are being met.
Therapy for Anxiety
Today, sources of anxiety are seemingly endless. From traffic to the environment to political or social struggles, it’s really no surprise that so many people who reach out to us are dealing with some level of unmitigated anxiety. Like other mood disorders, anxiety is what happens when a natural response to our circumstances, in this case anxiety, becomes elevated or is sustained for a long time, leading to a negative impact on our daily lives. If your elevated anxiety levels have started limiting what you want to do or feel that you can do, it’s time to talk to someone about coping with anxiety and feeling empowered to live your life again.
Faith and spirituality can be important parts of your therapy journey outside of our sessions. Churches and faith communities offer structure, support, and a network of people who can help you find purpose and fulfillment. We believe that healing the mind also has to consider the wellbeing of the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. Our therapists are happy to work with individuals from any faith background, and we can incorporate your spirituality into our therapy sessions where you’ll be met with earnest interest in your faith life and support to grow in spirituality. If you are a Christian, several of our counselors have advanced training and experience that allows us to incorporate the belief structures and practices of this faith into our therapy sessions.
Who you are is not tied to just one aspect of your identity. You are a complex and multi-faceted individual with a range of unique life experiences that shape your self-perception. The purpose of cross-cultural counseling is to recognize and embrace the cultures that influence who we are and who we want to be in a non-judgmental environment. All of that to say, whoever you are and wherever you come from, we are here to support you in finding a road to increased self-acceptance and self-advocacy. We can also partner with you as you strive to understand and navigate conflict that is directly related to specific elements of your identity, so if you’re struggling with difficulties related racism, sexism, elitism, or any of the “isms,” let’s talk about it.
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy
EMDR is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after forms of therapy for individuals who have survived trauma or abuse. EMDR therapy sessions help individuals to pin point the internal sources of their pain and start finding ways to heal. It may seem impossible, but EMDR can truly help you to create a safe space in your mind to start processing the painful wounds left behind by trauma and abuse.
Therapy for Grief & Loss
Everyone will experience grief following a loss. Whether that grief is linked to losing a loved one to death or related to the loss of a long term relationship, job, or other source of structure and stability, the emotional, physical, and mental pain can make life more difficult. You’ve heard loved ones reminding you that time heals all wounds, and logically, you know, in time, the grief will lessen. However, you are having trouble getting through the days right now. As therapists, we don’t have any magic that will heal your pain after a loss, but we do have some evidence-based strategies to help you process the painful emotions and start to find moments of joy again even as you honor your painful loss.
Marriage counseling, also called couples or relationship therapy, can be an extremely beneficial option for people who are struggling to find the love, fulfillment, and intimacy they once experienced in their relationships. Our knowledgeable therapists, can help you to build a satisfying relationship, repair a struggling partnership, or maintain your thriving marriage. Wherever you find yourself in the relationship, our counselors are here to help you achieve your goals.
Whether you live a little too far away to justify regular visits to our Ambler practice or you’re in need of a more flexible therapy option to fit your busy schedule, online counseling may be a good option. Our therapists are happy to provide telehealth therapy options to increase accessibility for our clients while maintaining consistent counseling sessions to help them achieve their therapy goals.
Therapy for Emotional Abuse
There aren’t bruises you can show to prove that anything happened, but inside, you feel the hurt inflicted by emotional abuse deeply. Many survivors of emotional abuse are convinced that nothing is wrong or that they are the problem for years before they have the courage to seek counseling. If you made your way here, we know the struggle you have been through to find us, and we commend your strength in considering reaching out for help. Emotional abuse may seem invisible, but the effects are all too real. When you’re ready, our counselors can help you make changes, create boundaries between yourself and your abuser, and start seeking healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
Therapy for Sexual Abuse
If you’ve experienced sexual abuse, harassment, or assault, you may find yourself on high alert, feeling scared, embarrassed, anxious, or depressed, and you may not know what to do. Whether sexual abuse is a one-time event, a series of events experienced as a child or adult, or you’re still dealing with abuse, therapy can help. You don’t need to cope with the physical, emotional, and psychological pain of sexual abuse on your own. Let our therapists help you heal and reclaim joy and fulfillment in your life.
Therapy for Trauma & Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Following trauma, which can be one event, a series of experiences, or witnessing difficult events, many people struggle to process the psychological wounds left by these circumstances. Even if you think you’re coping with the past or current trauma, you may notice signs of change in your behaviors, thought processes, and emotional or physical responses that suggest you aren’t as “fine” as you want to be. The good news is that you don’t have to heal from these traumatic wounds on your own. Instead, let our counselor help you learn to process these difficult situations and get back to feeling like yourself again.
Life’s challenges can make us feel lonely and isolated. Sometimes you might feel like no one else struggles like you do. Group therapy brings people together and creates healing and change in community. Life is a team sport and group therapy is your training session. Allow others to support you, while you also encourage other people.
