Depression

Depression is not something you have to suffer with. We can help! There are eight things you can do to help with your depression. We can walk you through these steps.

Pornography Addiction

Most men and increasingly more women have struggled to at least a small degree with unwanted pornography issues or other unwanted sexual behaviors. Plenty of help is available so that you can conquer these issues in your own life and become an influence to help others overcome similar issues in their lives.

ADHD

Remember: ADHD isn’t about deficits of attention; it’s about deficits of interest. A person with ADHD has plenty of attention, just not for things that aren’t immediately rewarding. ADHD is difficulty with inhibiting behavior. If you think you or your children may be struggling with ADHD or ADD, come in for an assessment and get help!

Anxiety

So many of us deal with anxiety in some form or another, but too often the anxiety can get in the way of our ability to function well in the many areas of our lives. I have helped many people work through their unique experiences with anxiety to achieve greater levels of functioning in their lives.

Panic & Trauma

Trauma
If ever a situation has left you feeling helpless and powerless, that situation was most likely traumatic for you. It is horrible to feel that way, but even traumatic events can be worked through and overcome.

Oppositional Defiance

Marital Issues

 

Counseling can help you:

  • Increase your self-confidence
  • Identify and move toward your life goals
  • Move on peacefully from pain and trauma, past and present
  • Manage your thoughts and feelings effectively
  • Embrace the happiness available today
  • Improve and enjoy your relationships
  • Become a better parent
  • Overcome your problems rather than you being overcome by your problems

Seminars and Classes

I offer seminars on a variety of mental health issues from ADHD and anxiety/depression to pornography addiction. I frequently do 5th Sunday lessons for the LDS Church on pornography addiction, and I present for firesides and Relief Society activities. I do the 5th Sunday lessons, firesides, and Relief Society activities free of charge. I like my classes to be fun and entertaining while at the same time informative and helpful.

Therapeutic Modalities

Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in hundreds of clinical trials for many different disorders. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented. In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.

Acceptance Commitment Therapy
ACT differs from traditional cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in that rather than trying to teach people to better control their thoughts, feelings, sensations, memories and other private events, ACT teaches them to “just notice,” accept, and embrace their private events, especially previously unwanted ones.

ACT helps the individual get in contact with a transcendent sense of self known as “self-as-context”—the you that is always there observing and experiencing and yet distinct from one’s thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories. ACT aims to help the individual clarify their personal values and to take action on them, bringing more vitality and meaning to their life in the process, increasing their psychological flexibility.

Psychodynamic Therapy and Psychoeducation
Psychodynamic Therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are a client’s self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior. Psychoeducation refers to the education offered to individuals with a mental health condition and their families to help empower them and deal with their condition in an optimal way.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) treatment is a cognitive-behavioral approach that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and friend relationships. DBT theory suggests that some people’s arousal levels in such situations can increase far more quickly than the average person’s, attain a higher level of emotional stimulation, and take a significant amount of time to return to baseline arousal levels.
