Individual Counseling: Adult, Adolescent & Children

  • Do you often feel that you are not good enough? Does worry or perfectionism make your life difficult? Are you much more forgiving of your friends than of yourself?
  • Do you find yourself giving so much, there is often times little (if anything) left for you?
  • Do you feel down and/or hopeless and wonder if you will ever feel better?
  • Are you experiencing too much stress and anxiety?
  • Are you going through a difficult transition in your life (divorce, retirement, move, death in family, illness, new school, etc.)? Are you feeling overwhelmed with the responsibilities/stressors of the transitions?
  • Do you sometimes wonder if you’ll ever be happy?
  • Have you recently lost someone or something that is important to you?
  • Do you wonder why all of the “good ones” are taken and if you will ever find a partner to share your life?
  • Do you feel that you are not where you had hoped to be at this stage of your life?
  • Are you confused or concerned about your relationships?
  • Are you experiencing peer pressure and stress from your social group, or lack of social group?
  • Are you struggling with your spirituality and/or your purpose in life?
  • Are you struggling with feeling as if you “fit in?”

New Hope provides a safe and supportive environment where you will always be respected and heard. You will have an opportunity to explore and share (your dreams, needs, fears, desires, struggles, etc.) openly, honestly and freely.

Although we may sometimes explore areas that pose difficulties, you will always be encouraged to use your personal strengths and resources to grow. I believe that each individual is gifted with strengths and talents that help you traverse the journey of your life – We will help you identify your personal strengths and learn how to put them to use as you grow and thrive through your journey.

How does Individual Counseling help?

  • You can learn to be as generous and kind to yourself as you are to the other people you encounter – you can learn to be a good friend to yourself.
  • You can learn to understand your feelings and that you can choose to act on them rather than react to them. It can help you recognize ways to prevent your “mood” from dominating your life.
  • You can learn how to bring more balance into your life.
  • You can learn to identify your ‘buttons’ or the ‘triggers’ which often send you down a path of self-depreciation or criticism.
  • You can learn about healthy boundaries in all relationships and how to apply them to specific relationships in your life.
  • You can learn how your past impacts your relationships today.
  • Counseling can help you sort through your life’s priorities and learn to live a more fulfilling life of integrity.
