Cognitive Behavioral Therapy addresses problems in terms of how we think. Letting go of unhealthy patterns leads to healthy emotions and behaviors. Clients learn communication skills, set new boundaries, forgive, and heal from resentment in a safe, interactive atmosphere.
Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT, Johnson) for couples addresses the underlying insecure attachment as issues are identified. Validation is taught as an integral part of resolving conflict and restoring strong love.
Solution-Focused Therapy helps prioritize problems and goals which are generated together at the first session. Clients' overall well-being may include referrals to physicians for treatment of biochemical issues. Counseling plans are unique based on client preferences.
Kathy Pardue, LPC
Couples want the norm of their relationship to be enjoyable rather than conflict. It is easy over time to develop patterns of isolation or aggression.
In sessions, we work to restore a secure attachment. Areas of resentment are carefully resolved thru validation, an integral skill needed for emotional intimacy.
Therapy helps restore the trust and communication as resentment is healed. The endless cycle of defensiveness is replaced with mutual respect and forgiveness.
Couples learn to see each other as an ally vs. an enemy or stranger. You can let go of relating competitively, and set a new pattern of fun, flirting, and intimacy.
Marriage Therapy. If you're discouraged living like roommates rather than being in love, that dynamic can change. Your marriage is the most important investment in your life and is worth saving. The intimacy can be restored despite the past, including infidelity.
Couples are helped to recreate their connection thru validation of thoughts and feelings. Each spouse is heard in a non-judgmental atmosphere and learns to listen with empathy. This pattern leads back to love.
As resentment is healed, forgiveness happens. The focus shifts to the qualities that attracted you, and passion returns. You can become best friends and lovers with your own spouse!
Individual Therapy. Life can become overwhelming. Stress and hurtful life events deplete us of energy and confidence. It takes courage to address the issues and seek help.
Therapy brings hope as options and goals are explored. Processing alone can lead to more isolation and further confusion. You can heal from abuse, addiction, anger, depression, divorce, unhealthy relationships, codependence, and eating disorders. Healing happens in safe relationship, not thru insight alone. Time to reach out.
Adolescent Therapy. Teens need affirmation and unconditional love during their years of extreme self-consciousness. The stress they experience physiologically alone is overwhelming.
Boundaries are also necessary for their need for security and self-confidence. Teens need to share verbally and enjoy art therapy to express their frustrations. We focus on a vision for their future, "My Life on Canvas."
Social anxiety, relationships, family conflict, and academic performance are areas they need to express. Trust in therapy sessions happens quickly as they experience freedom to talk.
