What Do We Treat at Primrose?
Anxiety
It is normal to worry, to be nervous or fearful at different times in our lives. 

Anxiety is a more persistent condition that impairs and individuals normal daily functioning. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. 

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18% of the population. (National Institute of Mental Health).
Couples Therapy
Couples make a big decision when they enter into couples counseling. For many it is about looking for a way to reconnect. For others, it is about learning new ways to communicate. For some it is about healing. 

Couples who make a decision to enter into couples counseling present a true strength that says “we care about this relationship”.

The biggest question asked by couples is “Does couples counseling really work?”  Statistics from the American Association of Marriage and Family therapists show that there is a high amount of patient satisfaction after couples counseling. 93% of couples do believe they are given tools that they can use to strengthen the relationship.
Depression
Depression is a potentially life-threatening mood disorder that affects 1 in 6 persons in the United States, or approximately 17.6 million Americans each year.

People suffering from depression generally experience little or no joy in their lives. You may be unable to remember a time when you felt happy, excited, or inspired.  Rather, you might tend to be inactive and withdrawn, you worry frequently, and criticize yourself as being a failure. You may also feel guilty, irritable, sluggish, and have difficulty sleeping regularly.

YOUR POSSIBILITIES TO HEAL ARE ENDLESS!
GET STARTED TODAY, AND TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE


Why do people go to therapy and how do I know if it is right for me?
There are a lot of reasons that people come to therapy.

People may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions or relationship problems. 

Therapy can help provide some much-needed support, encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may find it useful to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. 

In short, people seeking therapy are ready to meet the challenges life presents and ready to make a change. 
How can therapy help?
Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

Counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing mental illness, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, and the stresses of daily life. They can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or help you find a solution. 

The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. In other words, you get back what you put into it. 
What will be expected of me?  
It is important to understand that you will get more results from therapy if you actively participate in the process. 

The ultimate purpose of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in session back into your life. Beyond the work you do in therapy sessions, your therapist may suggest some things you can do outside of therapy to support your process - such as reading a pertinent book, journaling on specific topics, noting behaviors or acting on your goals. 

People seeking psychotherapy are ready to make positive changes in their lives, are open to new perspectives and take responsibility for their lives.
