Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Postpartum depression is NOT the baby blues. Baby blues is considered a normal part of the postpartum adjustment, requiring no medical or psychological intervention. Postpartum depression (PPD) is an umbrella term that refers to various mood or anxiety disorders that can follow childbirth. PPD can present in a number of ways depending on the predominating set of symptoms. PPD is typically an agitated depression, with symptoms of both depression and anxiety. When depressive symptoms dominate, we refer to it as postpartum depression. When anxiety is a compelling symptom, we refer to it as a postpartum anxiety disorder. Postpartum anxiety disorders include postpartum panic, postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder, and postpartum posttraumatic stress disorder. You may experience these symptoms following a loss, or termination of pregnancy.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
At the beginning, the therapist asks questions about your problems. They also ask about other things in your life, such as family, school, and health. They listen to what it's like for you so they can understand you. They talk with you and with your parent — sometimes together, sometimes separately. They explain how they can help you. Together you decide on goals for your therapy.
Counseling can be beneficial to people who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of life. Online sessions are held from the safety of your own home at a time that is convenient for you.
A qualified supervisor must be approved by the Florida Department of Health, Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy, & Mental Health Counseling. Supervision promotes the development of responsibility, skill, knowledge, and ethical standards in the provision of services for social workers, marriage and family therapists, and mental health counselors. During supervision, the supervisee provides information to the supervisor regarding the assessment and intervention with each client or client group. In the context of a reciprocal dialogue, the supervisor provides oversight, guidance and direction in assessing and intervening with clients. The supervisor also evaluates the supervisee’s performance. Responsibilities and liabilities are associated with the supervisory process.
