The services we provide are specifically designed to support your growth and understanding. Each session is as unique as our clients.

Counseling & Support for

The Emotional
Response of Our Experiences

While experiencing something intensely emotional, adults often respond with confusion, a struggle to know what they’re feeling, and, quite commonly, feelings of loneliness and helplessness. Every therapist within the team at Your Story Counseling has a deeply personal connection to their own experiences that shape their capacity to join you in learning, coping with your struggle, and healing.

Relationships
Marriage, Divorce

When we struggle as a couple, we also require a unique approach to understand better why we love the way we do. Our therapists that specialize in supporting couples have incredible experiences of their own that create an immense capacity to knowingly join in the discovery of identifying pain, improving communication, and nurturing a healthy, balanced, and fortified relationship.

Children, Teens

childhood and adolescence is the most vulnerable part of our lives. In these moments it’s hard for the adults in our lives to understand how to adequately show us support in a way that we truly need. Our team is uniquely equipped both intrinsically and deliberately to support our youngest clients in a way that also incorporates the structure of family backing.

Public Safety Professionals
Medical Staff, First Responders

Within our practice is the understanding of former first responders and family members of these professionals who have an awareness of the benefits of shared experiences. Our authentic therapeutic approach connects us because of our experience through it.

Understanding How We Relate to One Another.

Every family will encounter difficult situations and conflicts, whether from divorce, death, medical conditions, or the situational stressors of everyday life. When the stress of these encounters begins to make life at home feel out of our control to manage, it depletes our ability to function in other aspects of our lives.

Expansive
Group Therapy Options

We all need a safe place where we can talk things out, a place that makes us feel not so alone in the world. At Your Story Counseling, we continue to remain wise to the struggles of those around us to develop community groups and workshops that address these issues.

Specializing In

Our purpose is to meet our clients exactly where they are. The conditions listed are meant to provide an overview of the various services we specialize in. Within each tab, you will find a comprehensive list of the areas we provide support to our clients.

If there is a particular concern/need that you or someone you love is experiencing but not list, we encourage you to contact us. Because we all experience difficult chapters in our lives, ones that although don’t classify as a condition can still benefit from the services we provide.

Healing Takes Time

Whether we experience the pain of losing a loved one, a break-up or separation, post-college life, or a new job position or location, when we shift from one chapter of our life to the next, we all require a certain level of support to rework the way we encounter a healthy routine.

Support to rework our daily approach through shifts of:

  • Divorce
  • Grief
  • Loss
  • Life Transitions
  • Death

Reestablishing Control
Over Mind & Body

We all experience anxiety from time to time as our body’s way of naturally responding to stress. However, when our thoughts become persistently overwhelmed with worry and fear, it can negatively impact how we interact with the various stressors in our life and our response.

Varies from
Person to Person

Intense negative emotions or no emotion at all, loss of interest or motivation, isolation.

There are so many stigmas in our society today related to depression that it often makes it difficult for us to recognize or identify why the changes in our emotions began and if they will ever end. Although sometimes chronic, it is essential to note that a depressive state doesn’t have to be permanent.

Addictions to
Thoughts, Feelings, Behaviors

Whether you are in recovery or find yourself unhappy with your current use of a substance, restrictive or compulsive eating, gambling, or other difficult and repetitive behaviors, our experienced addiction therapists work with you to understand the underlying struggle that may have led to the reliability of your addiction.

Healing from crisis, feelings of shame, guilt, or harm experienced from the church, religion, or spiritual beliefs

When shame and guilt become intertwined in our fundamental and spiritual beliefs, it can be challenging to know where or who to turn to when we are most in need. Our focus in the faith-based counseling services we provide is to be there in the personal and religious trials that often hinder individuals from receiving the understanding and support they need to connect with their beliefs safely.

When a disturbing event occurs, it can get locked in the brain with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. EMDR therapy may assist in effectively processing and incorporating traumatic memories into general associative networks in the brain, creating an understanding of the memories within the larger context of the client’s life experience.

My favorite part about being a therapist is connecting with people, supporting and witnessing their healing journey because life is all about the journey, not the destination.

Bianca Rivera, MSW, LSW

Everyone’s therapeutic journey is different. I want to empower my clients to recognize their own resiliency.

Logan Chambers, MA, LPC, NCC

I believe trauma and mental health are challenging enough that you should never have to fight these battles alone.
