Anxiety is defined as nervousness, apprehension, and self-doubt that may or may not be associated with real-life stressors. Everyone experiences some level of anxiety periodically, but when feelings of dread and worry are unfocused, overwhelming, recurring, and not directly linked to stressful events, anxiety may leave a person severely impaired. When anxiety interferes with daily function, the support of a qualified mental health professional can often be helpful.
Because anxiety can interfere with relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and routine activities, anxiety is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy, and effective therapy can significantly reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with anxiety in a relatively short time, allowing a person to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control.
We all know what anger is, and we’ve all felt it: whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage.
Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life.
The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotional feelings and the physiological arousal that anger causes. You can’t get rid of, or avoid, the things or the people that enrage you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control your reactions.

Depression is the leading cause of disability in the world. Is more than just a feeling. It is a state where you feel lost- in your direction, purpose and life itself. Because this word is a mental illness, people often find it difficult to comprehend in comparison to physical illnesses such as cancer or kidney failure. Depression affect all aspects of life. It may be hard or even impossible to find enjoyment in anything, including activities and people you used to enjoy. Although it may be caused by certain external factors, it does not usually go away even if you will it to.
Clinical depression is different than feeling depressed. A person with clinical depression will have symptoms like loss of interest in activities, withdrawal from others, sleep problem or a drastic change in appetite that last for two weeks or more. Serious cases may even have thoughts of death or suicide.
Because of the confusion, and unawareness people tend to take depression lightly. Where depression is a serious condition that requires treatment soonest possible. It has huge implication to our health.
If you are struggling with depression, remind yourself that depression is a medical condition, not a weakness or a personality trait and that you cannot will yourself to get over it any more than you can will yourself to get over your broken arm. You are not defined by your depression and you are not alone.
The good news is most people with depression feel better with medication, counseling, or another form of treatment. Once you can identify that you may have a depressive disorder you can begin to seek the treatment you need to find relief and start to feel like yourself again.
All relationships are difficult in some form or another. There will be disagreement, conflict, and hurt even in the best of times. Relationship counseling can help individuals and couples grow and heal. Like all types of therapy, the lessons learned and behaviors changed will continue to serve each person for much longer than the therapy itself. It takes work to have a solid and positive relationship. Couples or relationship counseling is worth considering for any couple and can promote mutually beneficial change for years to come.
A healthy relationship is when the couple feels safe to relate deeply to one another. They feel generally secure, which means, they are comfortable with closeness and confidently depending on one another. They are good at seeking support and better at giving it. They feel safe connecting to their partner, easily get over the hurt their partner unavoidably cause, and they are less likely to get angry or hostile when they get mad at them.
Marriage is a challenging journey. Far too many couples lose their way. Counseling will help you to find your road map to create a vibrant marriage and come out a far better person on the other side.
I have written a short Ebook that shares lessons drawn from my own experiences of working with couples in troubled marriages.

It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress. The bills won’t stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day, and your work and family responsibilities will always be demanding. But you have a lot more control than you might think. In fact, the simple realization that you’re in control of your life is the foundation of managing stress.
Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control.
Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world. Traumatic experiences often involve a threat to life or safety, but any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and isolated can be traumatic, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but your subjective emotional experience of the event. The more frightened and helpless you feel, the more likely you are to be traumatized.
Psychological trauma can leave you struggling with upsetting emotions, memories, and anxiety that won’t go away. It can also leave you feeling numb, disconnected, and unable to trust other people.
But with counseling and support, you can speed your recovery. Whether the trauma happened years ago or yesterday, you can make healing changes and move on with your life.
