Depression is one of the most prevalent causes of mental health issues.

Trauma is unique to every individual. It can be the result of early relationships, cumulative experiences at work, or a single incident that changed your life forever. It can come up suddenly in our lives and can cause a downward spiral of depression and stress. Trauma therapy helps to stabilize, process, and ultimately heal.

Anxiety is a physiological experience that often presents as anxious thoughts about what may happen. It may be felt in specific circumstances or feel like it’s there all the time. It can show up as panic, and a sense of overwhelm. Therapy can help identify triggers and increase coping, as well as identifying and working with contributing factors.
Stress is your body’s release of adrenaline and cortisol which are hormones that can contribute to many short and long-term health effects. It can look like decreased tolerance and patience, a “shorter fuse”, or a desire to withdraw and hide away. Stress management helps to identify effective ways of coping with increased stress, and addresses issues that contribute to ongoing stress.
