ANXIETY

Anxiety can present itself in various ways with differing symptoms and severities.  Regardless if you can identify an established precipitating event, core conflict, or reason for worry, nervousness, or anxious symptoms; anxiety can affect relationships, quality of life, job opportunities, health, and more. WBW supports a collaborative approach for treatment that values the clients’ expertise on their own experience.  Whether your preferences lean toward evidence based treatments like CBT, DBT, and EMDR, or towards a more client-centered and less directive approach, WBW strives to provide a safe and secure environment in which to psychoeducate and address how better to manage anxiety.  Treatment for anxiety and related issues include,  stress management, development of better coping skills, access tools and resources, grounding, mindfulness, and breathwork.  If you are noticing that your anxiety and symptoms have become unmanageable and are curious in hearing what treatment options are available, we offer a free phone consult as a first step towards finding relief.

DEPRESSION

Depression thrives on thoughts and feelings of hopelessness and isolation.  Often people who suffer from and experience depressive symptoms believe nothing can change, and nothing can help.  It may feel too difficult to hope and believe that significant change is even an option.  And, you don’t have to right now.  We are holding that hope for you.  It only takes one.  One person to support and listen; one person to provide the help and direction to resources on the journey of understanding, coping, healing, or living with depression.  It can be long, but it can also be simpler and more supported.  Regardless of what you have been told, or what a part of you may believe; there is help, and hope, and healing.  The relationship between the client and therapist remains the most transformational agent and biggest catalyst for significant change.  If this has resonated or sparked a curiosity, we encourage you to make the first step and call for a free phone consult.

STRESS & TRAUMA
EMDR

Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a psychotherapeutic treatment model that has excelled in treating trauma by addressing the mind-body connection and reprocessing the destructive ways trauma can be stored in the body.  While it was initially developed to treat clients with severe trauma and PTSD, EMDR has expanded to include and address attachment wounds, anxiety, panic, depression, and other issues that affect daily functioning, relationships, and general life fulfillment.  Often, clients feel the need to qualify the damaging and negatively impactful moments and memories of their lives. No person, ever, actively decides what is going to be wounding, harmful, or hurtful to them.  The work of processing trauma can be difficult- living with untreated trauma and its effects is exponentially harder.  If you are interested in learning more about this particular treatment, please visit EMDRIA.com for additional information, or call for a free phone consult.

NET

Neuro Emotional Technique, (NET) is a mind-body technique that addresses unresolved stress held in the body.  It uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress patterns.  NET is not psychotherapy, and it does not involve any type of counseling, psychological guidance.  It can be, however, a highly effective adjunct to traditional psychotherapy.  For more information on NET, please visit www.NETmindbody.com.
