Do You Find Yourself Unsatisfied? Do You Want More Out of Life?

Are you experiencing anxiety or depression? Has a traumatic event disrupted your ability to function normally on a regular basis? Maybe you are recognizing a need for something more from life. You may long to be more productive in your work, or enhance the important relationships in your life. Whatever it is, you may feel that something important is missing. You desire more out of your life.

Individual counseling and life coaching can be extremely beneficial when you’re looking to take the next step forward in life. There are many different approaches to individual counseling, including, but not limited to, anger management, depression counseling and anxiety counseling. Whether there is a concrete concern, or simply the desire to improve your life, individual counseling gives you the opportunity to unlock a positive part of life that you may not have experienced. At Crossroads, we help you identify certain areas of your life that could use improvement and give you the tools that you individually need to grow.

Addressing Depression In Individual Counseling

Everyone goes through periods of feeling sad and depressed. Sometimes these feelings of depression lead you to experience alterations in your sleep patterns, changes in your appetite, or even a loss of interest in activities or hobbies that used to make you happy. Often we are able to shake these unwanted feelings relatively quickly. However, when feelings of depression linger, professional help through individual counseling can be hugely beneficial. Our Crossroads therapists are passionate about giving you the tools and support to help you break free of whatever negative cycles you may be struggling with. In individual counseling targeting depression, we help you regain control over your own happiness.

Addressing Anxiety In Individual Counseling

Many people experience the debilitating affects of anxiety. Anxiety can make you irrationally feel a sense of impending doom or a constant nervousness that something bad is going to happen for no apparent reason. It may make you feel jittery, panicked, and unable to control the fear that is gripping you. You may even find yourself avoiding situations that trigger anxiety.

When anxiety interferes with everyday activities and impairs your ability to function normally, there is a strong indication that professional help could be greatly beneficial for you. At Crossroads, we work with you to create constructive tools to make your anxiety more manageable. We believe that with some support and guidance, you can regain control of your emotions and your life. Our priority in individual counseling is to give you the tools that you need to empower yourself once again.

Addressing Trauma In Individual Counseling

Fully processing a trauma can be a long and confusing process. When a trauma occurs, you body’s natural reaction is to create a protective response as a “warning signal” for the future. However, this “warning signal” may lead you to experience higher levels of anxiety, stress and feel easily “triggered” by seemingly insignificant events. These feelings can significantly disrupt your everyday life, despite your efforts to move past them.

Your body’s response to trauma is complicated and difficult to navigate alone. That’s why we specifically offer trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) counseling to help you understand your past and move forward in a positive direction. One of the many tools we utilize in this counseling is EMDR, a clinically proven method that helps you resolve traumatic past events. With patience and openness, our Crossroad therapists work to help relieve you of the burden of the past trauma.

Personal Growth Through Individual Counseling and/or Life Coaching

Individual counseling isn’t only for those struggling with a significant obstacle like anger, depression, anxiety or PTSD. Many people simply find themselves searching for more out of their lives, yet lack the tools and resources to take that next step. You may want to grow in your relationships, spirituality or simply receive some guidance on seemingly everyday issues that you find disrupting or unsettling.   You may feel stuck and need the help of an expert life coach to help you find solutions that work.  Wherever you are in your life journey we can help with individual counseling and/or coaching that is specially tailored to your experiences, needs, and aspirations. Crossroads thrives on helping you connect with what you truly desire in life, and constructing a plan to help you achieve it.

Addressing Anger Management In Individual Counseling

Anger is a natural human emotion that everyone feels. Many people become easily agitated and struggle to control quick, highly emotional reactions. However, a continued lack of control of your anger can negatively affect work and home relationships, leaving you feeling ashamed or frustrated with yourself.

Oftentimes anger is a blanket for deeper, unsatisfied emotions. These deeper emotions can feel intimidating to admit and unveil, which is why many of us default to anger. In individual counseling, we work with you collaboratively to find the root of the emotion to identify what is triggering your anger. Your Crossroads therapist can then help pin-point concrete tools to help you express yourself in a more calm and constructive manner, giving you back control over yourself.  Anger management counseling is provided through individual counseling and can also be a part of group counseling through The Connected Man process group.
