OUR SERVICES: ADULT THERAPY

 

At the Louisville Family Center we believe that every person is perfect just they way they are, and that when we struggle we can easily lose sight of this fact.  

Therapy at the Louisville Family Center offers an opportunity to build a relationship with a caring therapist who can model connection to self and offer authentic feedback.  Learning to accept and love oneself as they are can both reduce the feeling that life is a constant threat and can allow more freedom to choose who we want to become.

Feeling seen and heard rewires our nervous system to feel safe and connected, allowing the ability to acknowledge our challenges and begin to view our obstacles as opportunities.

Therapists at the Louisville Family Center utilize a heart-centered approach which can include narrative therapy which supports gaining an understanding of the past, Gestalt techniques which are focused on the present moment, as well as psychoeducation that can help one understand the brain science of emotional regulation.

COUNSELING MIGHT BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF…
  • You are experiencing grief/loss or other challenging transitions in life, such as moving or a new job or school.
  • You are struggling with work, school or noticing outbursts of aggression or impulsiveness.
  • You are having having difficulty sleeping, eating or with other daily activities.
  • You are experiencing depression, anxiety, isolation or other strong emotions.
  • You are experiencing low self-esteem or relationship issues stemming from self-doubt, shame or blame.
  • You find it difficult or threatening to experience fearfulness, sadness, anger or other emotions.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.

– Carl Rogers

Addiction

Life is characterized by highs and lows. The high of the birthday party, the low of a beloved pet dying. Throughout these experiences our brain chemistry brings us up & down, typically evening out to a range of homeostasis, or relative stability. But what happens when we continually chase the highs, sacrificing the rest of life in order to ‘feel good’? Things can get out of hand, very quickly.

One of the struggles that many adults face falls within the category of addiction.  Addictions can be behavioral, or process-oriented as well, such as addiction to technology, work, devices, porn, exercise, and many other things.  On a personal level, moving towards healing an addiction can involve an understanding of the past, and a cultivation of mindful awareness of the present.
