To challenge individuals to break free from chaos and help them focus on healing one wound at a time.
Remember, you do not have to remain in chaos and be stagnant in turmoil. You have a right to live a life worth living with purpose and stability. Each step is a successful move forward at living a life worth living and enhancing your recovery.
Therapy is not easy. I repeat, the therapeutic process can be painful and tiresome, but so much more rewarding because it allows individuals to be free from bondage or other issues that have consumed them. If you’re new to this, let me help you understand how it works.
First and second sessions consists of relationship building to identify the main issues causing setbacks and increasing disheartening symptoms. The client identifies his or her goal for therapy and goals for what happens outside of therapy. The therapist provides the client with a treatable diagnosis and review what the remainder of the sessions would be like.
From session three and so on, the real work of reshaping, rebuilding, reprogramming, and whatever else is necessary to create change takes place.
The therapeutic process can be challenging during these sessions because the focus is on uprooting negative experiences, beliefs/thoughts, and painful emotions. The ultimate goal is for the therapist to help the client facilitate healing. Most importantly, the ideal client(s) is focused on healing from whatever he or she is battling.
The ideal client would be an individual having difficulties with one or many traumatic experiences, battling stress, or suffering from anxiety, depression, and invalidation from the lack of support from loved ones. When dealing with trauma, it does not matter when it happened because any experience is important. The ideal client would be struggling with symptoms of anxiety, flashbacks, depression, triggers, bouts of anger, invalidation, avoidance, and/or withdrawal.
The ideal family would struggle with communicating and listening to each other to resolve conflicts as a whole. The family typically argues, point the finger, does not take responsibility for their actions, but want to learn how to do better and be more supportive of each other.
Grey Dove Counseling stands out because of the person-centered and team approach. We are not going to tell you how you should live your life.

We treat several mental disorders, such as Anxiety, Mood, Panic, Personality, Phobias, PTSD, and Trauma-related. We use several treatment modalities, such as CBT, CBT for PTSD, CPT, DBT, EMDR, PE, and TF-CBT.
Ultimately, we know that there is no such thing as one size fits all therapeutic approach. Our first step in treating your needs is to listen and provide you with a secure place to feel open and validated. Your life story is important to us and we want to help you improve your well-being. We guarantee that you will not leave us believing that your life must remain in chaos. As long as you put in the work, we will support you through your recovery process.
