    Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

    Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is a cognitive approach to therapy developed by Patricia A. Resick, Candice M. Monson, and Kathleen M. Chard to treat PTSD and related conditions.

    Most of us experience some kind of trauma event at some time in our lives. With the right conditions we will recover from the stressful event and move on with life. However, many times, and for various reasons, some of us get stuck and the trauma continues to impact our lives, sometimes for many years after it occurred.

    Cognitive Processing Therapy has helped many of my clients to work through past traumas. One of the greatest moments in my work is to hear a client say, “This has changed my life”.

    If you or someone you know would benefit from Cognitive Processing Therapy, please contact me today. I would be happy to speak with you about how I may be able to help.

    Counseling for Anxiety

    I would love to help!

    Counseling/Coaching for Weight Loss and Maintenance

    There are many reasons we may be interested in maintaining a healthy weight. Sometimes it is to improve our health, maybe to join in activities with loved ones, or to improve our overall well being. However, for many of us, weight management is an ongoing battle.

    Counseling – If you struggle with managing weight as a result of unhelpful coping strategies around anxiety, depression, or adjusting to a new situation, we can address those issues around weight loss.

    Coaching – If you are wanting to lose and maintain weight to improve your health we can approach weight loss as behavioral coaching.

    You may not have been successful in the past because you didn’t know how. Once you decide on the right weight loss plan for you, I will help you develop lasting skills to achieve our goals.

    I invite you to contact me today for a consultation.

    Pre-Marital Counseling

    Did you just get engaged?

    Are you and your partner looking to take your relationship to the next level?

    Premarital counseling can help you and your significant other improve your relationship by helping you develop better communication skills, learn conflict management, uncover your shared core values as well as identify differences that could create future conflict. Working with a therapist, you can discuss expectations with your partner that will help better prepare both of you for marriage.

    Premarital counseling will help you learn how to be a better listener, and how to make your voice and needs heard in a productive and positive manner.

    Premarital counseling will also show you how to handle conflict in your marriage. When you live with someone, you will have arguments ranging from the very mundane to more serious issues. How you argue will be a part of the story of how you are as a couple. Learn how to de-escalate arguments and how to fight fairly, so you don’t cause emotional pain from things you said that you’ll never be able to take back.

    In pre-marital counseling, we will likely bring up topics that you’ve discussed with your partner previously, as well as subjects you hadn’t considered before. This fresh perspective from an objective third party will uncover new details from your partner. This is also an excellent time for us to find unexpected areas where you disagree, and give you the tools to handle possible future conflict.

    Getting married is one of life’s most treasured experiences. Premarital counseling can help you and your partner turn that momentous occasion into a loving, lasting relationship. For guidance and support to strengthen your future marriage, please contact us today so we can schedule an appointment.
