Issues of Life Professional Counseling Services,PLLC (IOLPCS) provides an array of counseling services to meet the needs of individuals, couples, and families.
IOLPCS provides individual therapy to adults 18 years and older. During your first session, you will have the opportunity to share your story and the issues you have been dealing. Despite your efforts with trying to resolve your issues, unfortunately, you have not had much success. As you share your story, I will ask you questions in order to gain a better picture of how these issues have been impacting your life and the people close to you. Together, we will develop a plan and map out strategies to help you with managing these issues successfully so that you can live your best life.
So often I hear couples say that communication is a big issue within their marriage and the lack of communication or poor communication have led to conflicts, hurt feelings, withdrawing from each other, and sadly, separation. Sometimes, the issue is not communication solely but a lack of deep emotional connection and bonding. As a relationship therapist, I follow the approach of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy which helps partners to interrupt the negative interaction patterns and to focus upon nurturing and caring for each others emotional needs.
Skill Building and Training
Have you ever found yourself in these particular scenarios:
"I have a speech coming up in 30 days and I am terrified. Can you help me with my anxiety and stage fright."
"I get so angry with my spouse and at work that I start cursing and acting out that I push people away. I hate this about myself."
"I am always late for something. I can never be on time for anything. I keep putting things off until the last minute."
"People are always running over me. I say yes to people when I really want to say no. I don't know how to speak up for myself."
Most people are not aware that counseling/therapy has a component where the receiver of counseling services can learn skills to help them to manage the challenges and the difficulties of life. Skill training and skill building can focus upon helping you to manage anger better, working through social anxieties, assertive communication, relapse prevention, disputing negative thoughts, and so much more. Becoming equip with coping skills can improve and increase your level of functioning to an optimal level.
In Between Sessions
In between sessions, I will check on you either by email or text to see how you are doing since the last sessions. Sometimes after a session is completed, you may still be processing the thoughts, emotions, memories, and images that surfaced during the session. Therefore, as a therapist, I think it is important that I reach out to you to make sure that you are keeping yourself safe and if you need additional resources to bridge you to the next session. Also, I believe in providing clients with assignments to complete in order to deepen the work they are doing in therapy and to strengthen their understanding of the information covered during the session.
