We are a private outpatient mental health practice in Southwest Virginia. We are dedicated to helping clients overcome emotional problems using counseling techniques which promote more rapid recovery than traditional psychodynamic or non-directive therapy.
Brief or solution-focused therapy is a practical, action-oriented approach to solving emotional and behavioral problems. Solution-oriented counseling emphasizes the present; on changing currently held beliefs or attitudes and maladaptive behaviors that cause emotional pain.
Solution-focused therapy emphasizes people’s strengths and inner resources, bypasses a lot of analysis and gives people concrete ways of changing their actions and their points of view. Solution-oriented counseling can be applied to many life situations and the results can be rapid, effective and life enhancing.
Do I Need Therapy?
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired.
You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
