Having close familial bonds and relationships have been associated with increased functioning across the lifespan. However in many families, getting along is not always guaranteed. Like friends and people we meet along life’s journey, we do not get to choose our family members in the same way. Miscommunication, fights, trauma and grudges may be at the core of some of the complicated dynamics families go through. Understanding the way in which the environment, community and broader society influences some of the concerns within the family dynamic may be one of the first steps towards healing. Ultimately recognizing unique roles and energy that each person brings to the table is the first step towards ultimate recovery.
While some families may be more resilient in the face of adversity, in some cases negative patterns of behaviors and thinking can carry over through generations and create what is often referred to as intergenerational trauma. Whether the entire family decides to heal together, or some members decide to take this important step towards healing, there is a space for you. Often times the person choosing to break the unhealthy cycles of behaviors may face struggles when disrupting what may be viewed as a normal cycle within the family. If you are the only one seeking healing or recovery, you are welcomed and encouraged into this safe therapeutic space. Let’s explore the root of the issues, and unhelpful patterns of thinking/behavior that do not support your higher vibration, so you evolve and live the abundant life you deserve today!
Children and Adolescents
Contrary to popular belief, childhood and adolescence is not always easy. Growing up can difficult navigating the home, school and broader community. With virtual learning becoming the new mode of learning for some students, this can be challenging for some children to adapt. For children who already had difficulty in the classroom, with the classroom becoming the home, it does not get easier having to also adjust into learning outside of the classroom.
The transitions from toddler, to a young child to a teenager alone is filled with various milestones and expectations. Extra difficulties such as challenging experiences, chaotic environments in the home or school or being surrounded by adults facing their own challenges, can make these transitions even harder.
Children and adolescents develop and evolve rapidly, and what happens during these transitions ultimately shapes their developmental trajectory and influences how they show up and navigate through society. Whether you bring your child or teen to therapy due to observed changes in mood, behavior or because of a suspected or confirmed mental health diagnosis, therapy can help children and adolescents learn developmentally appropriate coping mechanisms to show up in any environment as their best selves along the course of their development.

Only one percent of the nation is as brave as you are and made the same ultimate sacrifice to serve the country. With this level of prestige, the idea of getting help might feel conflicting. There is the stigma associated with what seeking help means. After all you were taught to be “strong” and to “drive on.” In the back of your head, all you can imagine is what your fellow service members, family and friends may think of you if you reach out for help. Perhaps you think that dealing with difficult experiences and emotions is just part of the job you signed up for and you have grown accustomed to feeling down and not like yourself. On the other hand, you feel like something isn’t quite right and this is affecting your work, relationships and how you show up in society.
You may have without a doubt shown great courage and strength in your service through missions, mobilizations and deployments. However, even the most courageous individuals have emotions at the end of the day. Whatever you may feel, know that those feelings are valid and the impact it may have on your day to day functioning should not be ignored or taken lightly. Just like you need medical attention when not feeling well physically, the same is true when you don’t feel like yourself mentally.
