Right now, more than ever, people are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety, stress, worry, depression and exhaustion. Adults are worn and weary, relationships are strained, parenting can feel depleting, and many feel completely overwhelmed. People are desperate for peace.
In an attempt to find this peace, many times we attempt to manage stress or life challenges by either shutting down – withdrawing from relationships, getting more internal, doing destructive things to quiet the noise, trying to just “buck up” and push forward – or we become over-reactionary – feelings become overwhelming, we might yell at our family, become more irritable, feel less patient, become quick tempered or quick to tears. These are all attempts to try and manage the storms within us.
There is a better way. Within a safe, welcoming therapeutic environment, you can find better ways to manage stress, anxiety, depression, pressure, challenges. Whatever you are going through, seeking counseling and support might provide you with some new skills and strategies that can create lasting change. You can experience more loving, connected partnerships, improved communication strategies, develop calmer parenting practices, and achieve effective work-life balance. Change is possible!
One aspect of counseling at Restore Counseling, LLC is the body-mind connection. Noticing thinking patterns and the body's natural wisdom can help clients build insight needed for positive change and growth. Racing thinking or worrying can spin adults into negative cycles, leading to decreased health and wellness. Learning to take hold of thinking patterns and redefine situations for oneself can allow a person a sense of confidence and restoration. Similarly, if a person can learn to not only listen to the body's responses, but also create a kind, loving connection to the body's expressions, clients experience a sense of wholeness and fullness often missing in busy, stressful lives. Within the context of therapy, clients learn how to honor their responses and regulate their own bodies, minds, and energy to experience a more rich and full life. Restore Counseling, LLC intends to support clients in restoring themselves back to wellness and peace.
