Life Journey Wellness
The clinicians at Life Journey Wellness have over five decades of combined experience in providing psychotherapy. Our treatment philosophy includes individualized care, as well as, a family-centered and community-centered approach. Natural support resources are emphasized, and each client is encouraged to find inner strength. We strive to meet our clients where they are: culturally, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. We understand that people need genuine empathy, compassion, and a sense of support and belonging in order to learn, grow, and heal. We promise to provide a safe, judgment-free space for our clients.
Individual therapy consists of 45-60 minute sessions designed to help you establish and accomplish goals. Past and current issues are addressed through an individualized treatment plan that will help you learn the skills you need to live a purposeful life, one full of joy. The duration of treatment depends on many factors, but the aim is for you to learn to address distressing thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical symptoms by using healthy coping skills. By challenging unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, you learn how to respond to difficult circumstances and stressors in a healthy way.
DBT skills training is designed for the purpose of learning skills to help you remain presently focused, while easing emotional and physical distress. We will help you learn and practice skills that help you accept and embrace the present moment with curiosity and without judgment. Some examples of skills provided are deep breathing exercises, mindfulness, guided imagery, and guided meditation.
Communication is the core element in couple therapy. We have worked with families, couples, and groups of people to facilitate healthy communication, reduce conflict, and accomplish shared goals. It is not the therapist's position to take sides on any matter, but rather to facilitate compassionate and honest communication, while helping each partner discover individual qualities that can help strengthen the relationship. We have worked with couples in traditional and non-traditional relationships, and we value the unique bond of each couple.
