It is common to react from previous life experiences. We desire to protect ourselves from disappointment, harm, and danger. Sometimes in trying to protect ourselves from the reoccurrence of past experiences we push people away, choose not to pursue our desires and goals, and stay stuck. Individual therapy will help assist you in breaking out of old patterns by exploring alternate ways of thinking, exploring new behaviors, and replacing old habits that are no longer serving your greater life purpose and daily happiness. What will you loose by staying in the same place you are in now? Achieve Joy Today.
It is not uncommon for couples to arrive at a place of disagreement, dissidence or unconnectedness. The cause of this change could be gradual or happen quickly. This can be a result of lack of communication, one or both members of the couple needs not being meet, and a loss of intimacy. Miscommunication is common amongst new relationships - you do not need to suffer alone. All relationships take work whether in the beginning or later down the line. Achieving Joy can work with you to build a stronger relationship with self and each other.
Congratulations, you have decided to take your relationship to a greater commitment. Achieving Joy works with couples in identifying and celebrating the strengths in your union. In addition, we seek to identity potential weaknesses within the relationship and create a safe environment where couples can explore their individual needs and create options to chose how they can work together and support each other in being fulfilled. Topics that will be explored include:
Being out amongst family/friends/work
Self exploration does not have to occur alone. Group Counseling is an opportunity to explore common issues with people who are in similar situations as yourself. Each group is different, some groups will be formatted for the members to bring in real time situations and gain the advantage of learning from other group members. While other groups are more psycho-educational and create an opportunity for participants to be more self-reflective, and will assist participants in identifying road blocks hindering them from the life and love they desire.
Virtual counseling is an alternative therapeutic method that will be held either by phone or through a secure online conferencing site. This is ideal for busy persons who cannot get to the office for a face to face, or members who travel, or live in an area where an Achieving Joy office does not currently exist.
