Anxiety, Panic, and Phobia Services
Anxiety and its various forms can severely restrict one from enjoying life to its fullest. Clients with anxiety usually feel preoccupied with significant worry and concern over things they both can and cannot control. However, anxiety is unique to each person and requires an in-depth assessment to determine the context in which certain symptoms surface. From there, we can tailor solutions to effectively address and manage one’s anxiety and fears, allowing them to pursue the life and goals they want.
Relationship and Self-Esteem Issues
Do you find yourself struggling to maintain long-term, deep, and meaningful relationships? Do you find yourself dating the same ‘type’ of person again and again, leaving you dissatisfied and wanting more out of a relationship? Are you currently in a relationship in which you find that your needs are not being met? Working with a therapist can have transformative benefits and foster a deeper intimacy between you and your partner.
Substance Abuse and Dependence
Addiction to alcohol and chemical substances can have a crippling effect on both the individual and their loved ones. While addiction can occur in isolation, it is often seen as a symptom of a deeper issue one has been wrestling with. Therapy offers a space in which the individual and the clinician can talk about behaviors to directly deal with substance use as well as issues that alcohol or chemical substances may be masking.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and Trauma
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma are commonly stereotyped, misunderstood, and misdiagnosed. However, if you have ever been exposed to a terrifying event that has resulted in certain sensory and physiological effects upon reminders of the incident (e.g., feeling like you are outside of your body, feeling as if the world around you is dreamlike), then you may have what is commonly referred to as PTSD. We offer treatments for the condition that help one to process the experience in an adaptive way.
Have you found that food, diet, exercise or thoughts related to your body image have dominated your life and caused debilitating stress? Does the stress severely affect what you eat or how often you eat? Eating disorders are tricky because they can simultaneously provide us with a sense of control while also make us feel completely controlled by them. We offer therapy that aims to identify the source of the eating disorder while also offering ways to break free from its grip.
Depression, Grief, and Loss
Depression and its various forms can slow life to a grinding halt, often making us feel directionless and hopeless. Much like anxiety, depression is unique to each person, and working with a therapist to better understand one’s depression is a useful first step in overcoming the condition and thriving in life.
Bipolar Disorder is a chronic condition generally characterized by distinct periods of mood shifts, which can alternate between manic episodes (e.g., feelings of inappropriately joyful and elevated levels of energy) and depressive episodes (e.g., low mood, feelings of hopelessness, being tired, suicidal thoughts).
Personality and Diagnostic Assessment
We all have feelings of anger, but some people feel it more frequently and more intensely than others. This can often result in destructive behaviors that keep others at a distance. Through therapy, we not only offer empirically-based solutions aimed to calm down in the moment, but we also examine the context of the emotion so that modifications can be made.
Marriage and Couple Counseling
Are you constantly fighting with your partner? Does it seem like you are both living on different planets while speaking different languages? Maybe your significant other has started to feel more like a roommate than a loving partner. There are an endless number of reasons for this experience that are unique to each couple. At Central Behavioral Healthcare, we offer marriage and couples counseling, where we discuss the context that led to the relationship taking a wrong turn and offer solutions aimed at resolving any underlying issues.
Worker’s Compensation Therapy
Debilitating workplace injuries can result in a form of grief and depression. The victim mourns over the loss of ability. Finding new meaning in one’s life is an important first step in creating a new identity, and therapists at Central Behavioral Healthcare are experienced in helping those who have been injured at work find their way back and adjust to the new challenges of physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities.
AD/HD Behavioral Therapy
The option of treating AD/HD with medication is a personal decision one should make based on information pertaining to short- and long-term side effects, as well as the effectiveness of the medication. However, regardless of whether or not you choose to treat your AD/HD with medication, behavioral therapy is an effective supplement to treatment of the condition. Through behavioral therapy, one can reduce the impact of symptoms by developing a variety of compensatory skills and behaviors
Have you felt constantly taken advantage of by friends, peers, partners or employers? Ever find yourself in those lop-sided relationships in which you feel as if you are the one making all of the accommodations for other people? If so, it may be beneficial to reach out to a therapist to determine if assertiveness training might help resolve this common predicament. Assertiveness training can help clients recognize their own needs and help set boundaries with others.
