Adult Counseling

Stress/Anxiety

Occasional stress is a normal part of life, but when it becomes too powerful, we lose vitality within ourselves and our relationships. Maybe you can’t stop worrying and over-analyzing, or you feel nervous and on-edge a good majority of the time. There may have been a recent event that has left you feeling lost and confused, or maybe you’re going through an overwhelming life transition. You’re tired and you just want to feel like yourself again.

You’re hoping to find some peace and balance in your life, and you’re ready to take the next step. We work with a lot of clients experiencing anxiety, and it’s incredible to see them move from a place of high anxiety and confusion to a place of greater peace and clarity.

Self-Worth

Occasional self-doubt is normal and a desire to improve is healthy, but when we repeatedly focus on our flaws and compare ourselves to others, we become defeated. Low self-esteem can lead to or exacerbate a multitude of issues, including anxiety and depression…and it can also affect the way we interact with others. Maybe you’re a high-achieving perfectionist because that’s the only way you feel valued or worthy. Perhaps you don’t have much confidence in yourself, often leaving you feeling inadequate. You might be highly self-critical and it’s getting exhausting keeping up with unrealistic standards you set for yourself.

You want to experience more confidence and freedom in who you are, but you’re not quite sure where to start. If any of this is you, we’d love to help you build self-acceptance, sense of self-worth, and awareness of the unique gifts you have to offer this world.

Relationship Stress

Stress within any close relationship is inevitable at various points, but when it becomes recurrent or persistent, it can rob us of joy. As humans, we are made for connection, so when we don’t have it, we feel like something is missing. This need for connection can drive us to be people-pleasers, making it particularly difficult to set boundaries. It can also create in us a fear of rejection that begins to dictate many of our choices and interactions. When we don’t feel secure in our relationships, we may notice more conflict and less intimacy (emotional and/or physical).

Our personal mental health is largely contingent on our relational health, so when we’re experiencing stress within our relationships, it’s important to address it. Through counseling, you’ll gain insight into what’s leading to the patterns you’re seeing in your relationships, and you’ll explore new ways of relating and connecting to others, ones that will lead to reduced stress and greater fulfillment.

Additional Concerns

Are you feeling depressed, angry, fearful, or ashamed? Someone may have hurt you, or maybe you’re grieving the loss of someone or something special to you. Perhaps you just feel stuck, but you don’t know where to begin to set change in motion. Whatever your concern, your counselor will meet where you are, help you set realistic goals for yourself, and gently offer therapeutic suggestions to guide you toward positive change in your life.

Led by Monica Molt, MEd, LPC, NCC

*Begins October 19*

WHO? College Women

WHAT? We often limit ourselves by believing lies about our worth. The comparison game, social media, and experiences of the past greatly impact the way we feel, in addition to how we treat ourselves. If you’re tired of self-esteem issues getting in the way of you finding confidence and freedom in who you are, we would love for you to join us. Over the span of 8 weeks, we will:

1) Explore the nature of low self-esteem and what perpetuates the cycle.

2) Learn techniques to quiet your inner critic and build self-acceptance.

3) Explore ways to live authentically and thrive during your college years.

WHEN? Mondays from 2 – 3:30 pm CST

WHERE? Virtual via our secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform designed for groups

WHO? Men ages 18-25

WHAT? Emerging adulthood is full of change, uncertainty, and identity exploration. For many, all of this happening at once can lead to stress about the future, difficulty making decisions, and self-confidence issues, particularly as they relate to education and career. Oftentimes, men feel obligated to be strong and capable, which can lead to an overwhelming sense of pressure to succeed. We created this career coaching group for young men who may have professional goals in mind, but are wanting to build empowerment to confidently pursue their goals. Over the span of 8 weeks, we will:

1) Learn strategies for setting meaningful goals that will positively impact daily decisions.

2) Develop skills for building self-efficacy, emotional regulation, and proactive stress management to enhance performance.

3) Build knowledge and tangible professional skills to maximize career success.

WHEN? Mondays from 6:00 – 7:30 PM

WHERE? Virtual via our secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform designed for groups

COST? $30 per session

WHO? Women in active recovery from an eating disorder/disordered eating

WHAT? You want your joy and freedom back. You have worked so hard to fight for recovery and, for the most part, your disordered eating behaviors have taken a back seat, but you’re still having a tough time accepting your body. Food continues to bring up feelings of guilt and shame and looking in the mirror is still something you’d rather avoid most days. If this sounds familiar, we would love for you to join us over the span of 8 weeks as we:

1) Create a non-judgmental space to process through the challenges of healing from disordered eating and negative body image.

2) Confront internal and external messages that perpetuate unrealistic body standards.

3) Learn tangible strategies for cultivating self-respect and nourishing your mind and body through intuitive eating and movement.

WHEN? Mondays from 4:00 - 5:00 PM CST

WHERE? Virtual via our secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform designed for groups

COST? $50 per session
