Did You Know?

Did you know most people are never taught the tools to manage their emotions in a healthy way? Bottling up emotions and negative feelings is harmful but if we don’t have the skills to explore them how can we be expected to do so? Instead survival mandates we find ways to process, deal with or make sense of what has hurt us, often leading to the development of depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, and other ways of coping.
Did you know that the brain processes physical pain and emotional pain in the exact same part of the brain? Self-injury is often the only mechanism through which a person can express how much emotional pain they are truly experiencing.
Did you know that we are socialized from a very young age not to ask for help? As children we may be stubbornly determined to do it all on our own or we may be afraid to be perceived as dumb or weak. These thought patterns follow us through our lives leaving us vulnerable in our darkest moments, alone and afloat, too scared to reach out. Asking for help is powerful. You don’t have to be alone.
Did you know that we can’t know what we do not know? On the surface this statement seems simple but how many of us carry guilt and shame for our behavior when, in truth, we were never taught that other more preferred reactions or chooses were available? We cannot authentically make choices that we do not know exist. With the right skills the impossible will be possible!

Depression, Anxiety and Stress Therapy Based in Neuroscience

The world is round
and the place which may seem like the end
may also be only the beginning”

– Ivy Baker Priest

Life is an incredible journey.

Life is an incredible journey, with its ups and downs, trials and successes, tears and laughter. Sometimes, though, it doesn’t feel as though there is a balancing of the tough times and the good times. Sometimes life starts to feel like a cycle of difficult and painful experiences with no end in sight. In these times we often struggle to reach out for help for depression and anxiety. We may feel guilty or “bad” for having a hard time or choose to numb out through the use of alcohol, drugs, food, or self-injury.

Life does not have to be this way. are meant to live our lives fully, freely, and passionately—free from depression and anxiety. Sometimes, though, life seems to get in the way of our hopes and dreams, leaving us wondering “why?” and “why me?” Sometimes we seem to get in the way of our hopes and dreams, leaving us asking “what is wrong with me?” and “how could I?” When your day becomes filled with feelings of depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and/or guilt then your life will feel out of control. When your thoughts become driven by shame, regret, self-loathing, and helplessness your mind will feel unmanageable. Living in such chaos is not only unacceptable, it is unnecessary. Our team of therapists is here to help.

Imagine a life in which you have the tools and techniques to do more than survive.

How do you choose to experience your journey?

Peering into the unknown may feel overwhelming. Change can feel exhausting. Sometimes change, a different life, a more fulfilled life may even feel impossible.

Behaviors and patterns often feel stuck and built into the core of who we are. The quicksand of depression, anxiety, hopelessness, resentment, grief, and anger may even feel comforting. The question posed, though, is how do you choose to experience your journey? 

It is time to Live Your Excellence.

Imagine a life in which you have the tools and techniques to do more than survive. Imagine a world where you wake each day knowing you are choosing to actively thrive. Imagine a universe in which you are truly and completely alive. 

Now imagine that you don’t have to imagine—this is your reality when you Choose You and Sponsor Your Best Life. Choose to make your journey incredible.
