Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you’ve faced, there’s nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. Therapists at New Transitions Counseling Center can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks.
The approach New Transitions Counseling Center therapists chose to treat clients originates from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence based approach that has proven to be an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, and substance abuse.The cognitive model emphasizes that the results of our emotions and behaviors are directly influenced by how we perceive events. Essentially, it is not the specific event that is the determining factor on how one feels but rather, it is the individual’s interpretation and internalization of the proceeding event. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.
New Transitions Counseling Center therapists describe the individual therapeutic relationship as a collaborative alliance working toward a common goal. This common goal is about attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values. Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones and understanding the magnitude your thoughts have on feelings and behaviors can help find resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy.
