You can't seem to get it together. You struggle with focusing on any task you have. Forgetfulness and frustration has become the norm for you. You find yourself shutting out the ones you love quickly and easily. You may even notice physical problems arise when you feel stressed, including headaches, muscle pain, sleep issues, and high blood pressure, to name a few. And none of these issues makes the stress you feel any easier to manage.

Through counseling, we can work together to find creative solutions by using the strengths you already have. We will work together to find out the patterns that are not helping, and find new ways of approaching your specific stressors.
Working as a first responder is already stressful enough. Our goal is to help you be in control of how much the stress impacts your ability to live freely. You will see these changes allow you to be yourself again without the stress topping you from enjoying the everyday moments.
Stress-management counseling sessions are 45-50 minutes in length. To know the fees and costs for sessions, look here. These sessions are usually scheduled every one to two weeks, based on your needs and schedule. Depending on your goals and personal needs, counseling can be as brief as 8-10 sessions, or last for several months.
