Physical Health and Mental Health are often Parallel

Overall, maintaining your mental health is just as important as maintaining your physical health.

Anger Management

Anger is a normal human emotion that can be positive or negative depending on its expression.  If you suppress your anger, it may lead to anxiety or depression.  If one expresses anger in an unhealthy manner, it could impact our behavior, our thought processes, and ultimately our relationships.  It can also lead to various physical health issues.  We teach effective anger management techniques that will allow you to express yourself in a healthy way.

ADHD Behavioral Plans

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a highly common brain disorder in children that can continue into adulthood.  Some symptoms include difficulty in controlling behavior, difficulty in focusing, as well as being very hyperactive.  ADHD can create challenges for children in their education efforts as well as social skills.  Research reveals that one of the most effective ways to treat ADHD in children and teens is by using management techniques that our specialists will teach.  Our experts will work with you on a custom, personal plan to help you treat your child’s specific ADHD symptoms and develop a plan that will make life easier for both you and your child.

Grief Support

Have you lost someone or something you loved deeply or cared for and are dealing with extreme internal emotions and pain?  Are you questioning whether the pain will ever stop as if the sadness will always be with you?  Difficult emotions are a natural reaction when experiencing a major loss.  Grief support is not only for those that have experienced a death of a close loved one, but there are other situations in life that can bring about significant grief.  We work with those who are experiencing grief from the following:

  • Loss of a Loved One
  • Relationship Breakups and Divorce
  • Health Issues
  • Loss of a Job or Career
  • Miscarriage
  • Death of a Pet
  • Onset of Serious Illness in Someone You Love
  • Losing Someone’s Close Friendship
  • Experiencing Trauma and No Longer Feeling Safe
  • Retirement

These are all situations that can create emotional distress and extreme grief.  While there is no right or wrong approach to grieving, our behavioral health experts can help you cope with these difficult emotions in a healthy way that will, in time, give you the peace of mind to move forward in life.
