Anxiety – Counseling Can Help

Anxiety comes in many forms. While some have more situational anxiety – such as being nervous for a test or speaking in front of a group, others struggle with crippling, chronic anxiety that seems to come from nowhere. Some people experience panic attacks and episodes of anxiety while others have a low-level anxiety constantly buzzing […]

Trauma – Coming Together as a Couple

Spouses play an important role in their partners healing after trauma. They can help create an environment of recovery and healing. Even if the trauma happened when they were younger, support from a spouse can help heal. Research (Valentine and Feinauer, 1993) has found that this is the case for women who have survived child […]

Positive Self-Talk

I once had a client tell me that the way they talked down to themselves served as a way to keep them from being prideful, arrogant and thinking they were better than others. It was an interesting way to go about keeping a check on how they presented themselves to others and themselves. I’ve seen […]

True Self Care Vs. Escapism

Have you ever felt burnt-out and desperate for rest, relaxation, fun, or connection?  But despite taking time to do something you thought would help you take a break and be ready to jump back into life, you still feel overwhelmed, anxious, and as though you have had no rest at all?  This may be a […]

Depression – Winter Blues?

Winter brings depression for many here in Utah. For some it comes on because of the shorter, darker days. For others it comes because of a change in diet (i.e., eating too much and too unhealthy at holiday gatherings) and moving less (i.e., not exercising or moving around outside. And for others it comes because […]

College: A Generation at Risk

A College diploma is a goal for millions of Americans, yet graduation rates have never been lower and those who do graduate take 6 years on average compared to the 4 years of previous generations.  Recent research has helped us understand that these dismal outcomes are not because students cannot handle the coursework, because the vast majority of students can grasp the academic content; rather mental health issues […]
