Yet, even when things haven’t gone the way you’d hoped…When pain, anger, frustration and sadness have replaced hope and comfort…When all you have is the sense that something has to change…
…you can discover your inner strengths and resilience.
Through personal healing, new perspectives, and psychoeducation, change can happen to restore peace and happiness. You can live an amazing life!
Change does not necessarily come easily. Sometimes it is too slow. Sometimes it feels unsafe.
At Carapace Counseling, in the way that a carapace – the protective shell of the turtle – provides physical safety, my primary goal is to provide a level of emotional safety for each person, couple, child, or family member to nurture change by
- expressing concerns
- developing trusting and caring relationships
- improving communication
- resolving conflicts
All of these elements are important to psychological health.
CHILDREN & TEENAGERS 3-17YRS
Have you ever wondered why children make a game out of everything? Especially when you’re trying to get them to listen or do something they are not doing. Children communicate through play. Some say the language of children consists of using toys for words and play for the delivery of these words. It is difficult for children to express themselves with talk therapy like adults.
SAND TRAY THERAPY
Even though sand tray therapy is primarily used with children; young adults, couples, and families can benefit from the process. Many times the familiar medium of sand is used to recreate a child’s world after abuse, extreme neglect, or trauma.
FAMILY & COUPLES THERAPY
Our lives are filled with relationships. Relationships that we desire to be fulfilling, loving, supportive, accepting, respectful, and trustworthy. However, sometimes relationships can feel like a lot of work with the result being nothing more than going through the same patterns and same disagreements that never get resolved.
