Anxiety and Panic
Anxiety can affect anyone at any age. Symptoms of anxiety can be emotional as well as physical, and can range from mildly irritating to interfering with everyday functioning. Anxiety does not have to win! There are many tools to learn in order to improve symptoms of anxiety or alleviate them altogether. Our staff will help you learn the most effective ways to deal with the source of anxiety to live a more fulfilling life. Service provided by Daniel Auerbach, Shawn Newdeck, Ann Plenderleith, and Kelly Stangl-Meddaugh

Mood Disorders (depression and bipolar)
Living with depression or mood swings can make simple tasks seem daunting. Understanding a person’s emotional difficulty and how it impacts their life provides a good foundation for therapy. We are here to help you learn the skills necessary for creating and sustaining balance in your life. Service provided by Daniel Auerbach, Shawn Newdeck, Ann Plenderleith, and Kelly Stangl-Meddaugh

 

 

 

 

 

 





 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Individual
Life is challenging! The number of hurdles that arise can feel countless and our ability to thrive short-lived. That’s why it is so important that we all learn how to be present in the “now.” In counseling we can help you to identify barriers to success, deepen your self- awareness, and create healthy strategies to live a more fulfilling life. Service provided by Shawn Newdeck, Daniel Auerbach, Ann Plenderleith, and Kelly Stangl-Meddauh

 

 

Fertility

Our focus is to help you navigate the emotions and questions that arise during this          unique journey of trying to expand your family. We understand that this is a private time in which you may be limiting your support from family and friends. Roadblocks in starting a family can lead to feelings of loss and depression, anxiety and fear. We are here to listen, provide support, and help guide you through this pivotal time. Service provided by Shawn Newdeck

Post-traumatic Stress

People react in many different ways to a traumatic experience and can feel the effects of the trauma long after the event has occurred. Helping people who have been effected by traumatic experiences requires establishing safety while helping the person create a healthy life plan. We are here to provide a safe place to move forward after trauma and help the process of recovery. Service provided by Ann Plenderleith (certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy) and Daniel Auerbach

Child and Adolescent

Our children live in a very different world than most of us experienced in our youth. There is an increased emphasis on education and achieving personal success at a very young age, and the prevalence of social media has posed many challenges for both parents and children. If your child or adolescent is struggling with depression, anxiety, behavior challenges, low self-esteem or other challenges, we are here to help them feel more confident in today’s world. Service provided by Daniel Auerbach (adolescent), Shawn Newdeck- adolescent), Ann Plenderleith (child and adolescent), and Kelly Stangl-Meddaugh (child and adolescent)

LGBTQ*

The challenges faced by LGBTQ* people and families can be numerous, frustrating, and at times feel unrelenting. No one has to face these challenges alone! We are here to listen to everyone’s concerns, and recognize and strengthen a person’s natural talents and abilities. We will work with you to help establish safety and balance to live a more fulfilling life. Service provided by Shawn Newdeck, Daniel Auerbach, Ann Plenderleith, and Kelly Stangl-Meddauh

 

Family

Families come in many shapes and sizes. One thing that is consistent across all families, though, is that family provides us our foundation, our safety net from unforeseen hurdles in life. Stress within a family can weaken our ability to seek nurturance and support from family. We would like to help you find the tools to connect, to learn, to listen, and support those you love. Service provided by Shawn Newdeck, Daniel Auerbach, Ann Plenderleith, and Kelly Stangl-Meddauh


 

Relationships

Relationships can be challenging. Things that we had never planned or anticipated can impact the strongest of relationships: a spouse becoming ill, mental illness, infidelity, financial stress, disagreements in child rearing, separation or divorce and co-parenting after separation or divorce. It is easy for us to forget how to talk to oneanother and more importantly hear one another. We will work with you to develop healthy communication and a build a stronger foundation. Service provided by Dan Auerbach, Shawn Newdeck, and Ann Plenderleith
