Is This You?

Let’s face it; life can feel overwhelming and painful sometimes.

When you’re feeling stuck, frustrated, and tired of how your life and relationships are going, change can often feel impossible.

You may be spinning your wheels thinking, “This just isn’t how life was supposed to be for me”, you may be feeling like you just can’t talk about what’s really going on for you with friends and family anymore, or you may even imagine that there’s something wrong with you for feeling this way.

You might be emotionally exhausted, confused, and maybe even a little desperate for someone to help show you the way through but the act of choosing a therapist – one who will really get you and your issues – feels overwhelming, too.

This is such a hard place to be in.

But you know what the good news is?

Here at Evergreen Counseling we really, truly believe that it is possible to move through these painful times in life and to actually use these times to get clearer and make solid, helpful moves towards the life you actually dream about for yourself.

And you definitely don’t have to go through this alone.

What You’re Hoping For During Individual Therapy:

If you want to create lasting change in your life and move closer to the life you envision for yourself, beginning therapy with us at Evergreen Counseling can be the perfect place to start.

Why? Because psychotherapy is a process of inner exploration leading to deeper understanding of how you relate to yourself, to others, and to the world in general.

By working together with an Evergreen therapist, you two will be able heal old emotional wounds, uncover and understand any self-destructive patterns and behaviors that are playing out for you and replace them with new, more supportive behaviors and beliefs that will help you move closer to the life you envision for yourself.

Relief From Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, And More: 

Though therapy doesn’t come with guaranteed results, you can absolutely imagine that some of the benefits of therapy include:

  • Relief from anxiety, depression, and chronic worry;
  • Clarity about you truly want versus what you think you “should” want and the courage and capacity to move towards what you want;
  • More connection and greater ease in your relationships, especially when it comes to effectively communicating and navigating differences with loved ones;
  • Freedom and relief from self-sabotaging behaviors and addictions, and a genuine sense of feeling better in your own skin;
  • An increased capacity to resiliently handle the inevitable tough stuff of life;
  • A sense of feeling like you can finally move forward after big losses;
  • And an every day life that includes more ease, more joy, and an increased sense of aliveness;
  • A life that, instead of looking good on the outside, actually feels good on the inside.

Truly, beginning therapy can have a profound and transformative impact on nearly every aspect of your life.
