Depression and anxiety can seriously interfere with sleep, relationships, physical health and well-being, concentration, and academic or work motivation and performance. Both are quite common and can strike at any time in your life.
We can help you identify symptoms of depression and anxiety that you may be experiencing. We will work with you to come up with treatment solutions that help you raise your confidence, understand your sources of stress, and ultimately help you feel better. We use assessment tools to track your symptoms and progress, and we will work with your primary care provider (with your permission) to help you improve the quality of your life.
We pride ourselves on being a trauma-informed practice in the Peoria area. We use creative and cutting-edge approaches in our treatment practices, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
Trauma symptoms can linger over time. Symptoms can manifest as excessive worrying, always feeling "on edge," trouble focusing, memory issues, or lack of experiencing joy.
Did you know that COVID-19 has caused a surge in mental and behavioral health problems in children? Remote learning, being isolated from peers, and reduced involvement in physical activities (sports) and school activities are negatively affecting our kids today.
Withdrawing from social situations, spending MORE time than normal on social media, persistent sadness for two weeks or more, chronic irritability, anger, and recurrent stomach or headaches can be potential signs your child is struggling.
Relationships are hard work. Communication, boundaries, respect, and intimacy are very common issues that cause conflict. Our clinicians believe in utilizing the principles of the Gottman Institute as a model for moving forward in treatment. We offer a judgment-free zone to explore relational/marital needs and conflict and explore ways to improve relationship satisfaction.
We help people reconnect with their partner, rekindle the passion they once had, and redefine their relationship moving forward. We believe in helping couples not just get by, but build their relationship on a firm foundation that can withstand future tests.
We specialize in helping all people within the family-set boundaries, forgive, heal and rebuild trust and communication.
Your sexual or romantic orientation or gender identity may not be a source of distress. Yet people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, ace, questioning, intersex, or any other type of non-conforming identity may find that the social stigma of living as a sexual minority is a source of stress or anxiety.
When seeking counseling, whether for issues associated with your sexual, romantic, or gender identity, or for everyday concerns, finding a qualified mental health professional who has experience and familiarity with issues that confront the LGBTQIA+ community can be critical to helping you find the solutions you're looking for. We believe strongly that you will find this in our practice. We strive to be an all-inclusive practice, and all are welcome here regardless of identity.
