Hitting the brick wall? Sinking in the swamp? Are life’s circumstances more than you can handle? Do your friends and family wonder if you are alright? Maybe some counseling would help. I love to help clients manage their emotions, learn to problem solve more effectively, or gain perspective in their current life stage. Please see the list of commonly addressed issues to ascertain if a dose of counseling would be in order.
Are the goals you and your spouse looked forward to seeming out of reach or unreachable? Does time together not yield the kind of closeness the two of you previously enjoyed? Has unresolved conflict become the norm for the week? Are united hopes and dreams not part of your conversation anymore? Might there be individual issues that are getting in the way of you two enjoying each other as a couple? A portion of couples counseling can help. Sustained relationships are hard work for everyone. In couples counseling we can build a skillset that makes the hard work effective in healing or building the relationship.
Can counseling be sped up? Can relationship skills be taught to the young, old and all those in between? What role could a horse take in helping people work through life's obstacles? Commonly people find the medium of a horse refreshing and soothing in their counseling experience. Allowing the interaction between client and horse to point out areas in which growth needs to occur feels less intrusive and more accurate. And yes, clients find the counseling process expedited by incorporating horses into their progression.
Do you remember the moment you met your first child? Did you have that mix of emotions ranging from excitement to angst wondering what the future will hold? The deep smiles of family dreams too often morph into deep hurt and anger that is surprising. What seems to be pulling your family relationships apart? Where is the distance in your family relationships coming from? In family therapy, we analyze what works in uniting your family and what is not working in uniting your family. With that information in hand we teach skills and develop a plan to begin the unifying process necessary to help your family enjoy each other again. As that process begins to unfold, we next begin the work of ironing out the kinks of your adjusted family system.
