Self Esteem:

Do you find yourself falling victim to the voice in your head that whispers, “You’re not good enough?”  That lying notion that screams, “You are worthless” or “You are alone”. Or maybe you obsess over something you said and worry if someone is mad or hurt by you.   No matter how confident or strong we are, the human side of us still questions our worth or compares ourselves to others far too often. Perhaps it’s because someone did something awful to you as a child.  Or maybe you were held to impossible standards for most of your life. Or maybe you’re a people pleaser who constantly worries so much about how others see you that it consumes your life. Whatever the driving force behind your low self-esteem, you want to break free from the prison you feel trapped in.  It is important to regain (or find for the first time) your identity of worthiness and belonging in Christ. Then, we become free to live the truly authentic and fulfilling lives that God intended for us to live.

Each of these questions has likely highlighted the reality that you are experiencing low self-esteem.  I know that you are reading this because you want to change. You want to believe that transformation is possible and are likely just not sure where to begin.  Or maybe you’re wondering if change is possible for you. The great new is that at New Vision Counseling you have a 100% chance to succeed. And by you seeking help you have already shown courage by taking a big first step to changing your life.  It’s scary and painful to admit that you don’t feel valued or worthy. The great news is that there is hope available for you today.

At New Vision Counseling we help you discover the real you that God created.  We aren’t the type to sit on the couch and watch you suffer. No way! We jump into your story with you with you.  When you contact us you will soon discover that we see you as more than just a client. We believe that you are a valued child of God and we are passionate about helping you truly believe that for yourself.

How we Help

We help you uncover the areas of your life where you’re living out of lies.  Areas where your negative experiences and the opinions of others define you. We walk with you through the process of uncovering the origins of these lies.  The lies that say other people matter more than you. That people don’t have time for you. That you are a nuisance. That if they knew who you really were no one would like you.   

As we uncover these lies we are simultaneously wiring in a new identity.  An identity that is secure in God and bigger then your experiences or the way others treat you.  You will learn to believe and feel valued even when others are upset or when you make mistakes.

During this journey, you will never be alone as long as you continue inviting us into your story.  When you contact us you will realize that you don’t have to live another day like this! You were created in love to live loved by a God of love.  And today is the first day of your journey towards the better life you always hoped was possible.

Anxiety

Anxiety is that loud voice in your head that screams “You’re losing control!” “You’re not safe!” “People don’t like you!” “You have to be perfect!”.  Its that swirling of “What ifs” circling in your head and the tightening of your chest. Even when every logical bone in your body knows that everything is okay, anxiety won’t let you believe it.  It hijacks your thoughts, your productivity and your inner peace. And if left unchecked long enough it can ruin your health, relationships and your life.

Trauma

If you are reading this then something tragic has happened in you life.  You have likely suffered and felt alone and isolated in so many ways. Trauma can leave you feeling powerless and wondering how you could ever regain a sense of safety and control again.  There is no doubt you were robbed as something very dear was taken away against your will.

As you read this you are likely feeling alone and wondering if we can really help.  You may be experiencing a sense of shame and a strong need to remain silent. This shame is so powerful it can deceive you into suffering in silence for the rest of your life…if you let it.  But that’s not what you’re going to do. No way! You are here because you want help and the GREAT news is we can help you. Let’s start by affirming that you are not alone in your trauma.

Research indicates that approximately 70 percent of Americans have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetime.  Trauma can range from mild to severe and have a multitude of negative effects on our lives. Psychological trauma can originate from childhood abuse, neglect, unhealthy relationships, bullying, car accidents, injuries, sexual abuse, home invasions, witnessing scary events or thousands of other experiences that we may encounter throughout our complex lives.  

If left unresolved, trauma can lead to shame, anxiety, or depression.  You wonder if you will ever be able to love, trust, and be happy again.  How can you move forward in a relationship when something like intimacy is a trigger that spirals you into an anxiety attack?

How We Help

Having the courage to begin therapy is the first step to a better tomorrow.  Therapy is one of the most powerful remedies for healing the negative effects of trauma.  Sharing your story within the safety of the counseling office with your trusted therapist is a big step towards freedom.  Our trauma-informed therapists have a gift for validating your feelings and guiding you through the healing process. No one but God can take away the pain but we will walk with you through it until we get to the other side.

At New Vision Counseling we have several therapists who specialize in treating trauma.  We use cutting-edge techniques like Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to resolve past or recent trauma and set you free to live in the present moment.  Our clinicians are trauma-informed and client-centered in their practice. We use unconditional positive regard to foster a judgment-free, caring environment where it is truly safe to share your story.

We would love to help you break the chains of a traumatic past.  We know that healing trauma requires tremendous courage and tenacity.  And we know how hard it can be to take the next step. That’s why all we ask is that you reach out to us today so that together we can begin your journey to healing and freedom.  Click the button to schedule your first session. It’s time to let go and move forward and we are here to show you the way.

Depression

Raising Teenagers

Help!  This is likely where you are at if you have one or more teenagers running your house…I mean running around your house.  You have listened to every parenting podcast and read every book and yet the struggle goes on. All your friends tell you this season will pass.  All you hear is blah, blah, blah because you need real help and you don’t know what to try next.

Perhaps your are stuck reminiscing in the past.  You remember parenting a toddler and thought that was difficult.  They stumbled around the kitchen, knocking over the dog’s water bowl and dragging out the canned foods for the 17th time that week.  They embarrassed you in the grocery store and drew a masterpiece on the living room wall in the most artistic shades of permanent marker.  After chasing them up and down the hallway for what seemed like decades, they finally made it to adolescence! And now you are shell shocked because you thought that in the teenage years you could sit back and enjoy all your hard work as they coast into adulthood. Unfortunately, that’s not what is happening.  

You want God’s best for your teenager and are at a loss of how to help them in this social media crazed world where everything including gravity is being questioned.  Can you relate to any of the following?

  • The school has called again to let you know that your child is acting out in class and has just been suspended.  
  • A friend calls and says their daughter confessed that your son was sending inappropriate pictures to her.
  • You see your daughter scrolling through her facebook and instagram feeds comparing herself and her life to perfect images on the screen.
  • You see your daughter struggling with low self-esteem and depression and feel powerless to help her.
  • You walk on eggshells because holding them accountable and even small requests send them into a rage of out of control emotions.

At this point you can feel desperate and all alone.  There are few things in life more excruciating than watching your child struggle and feeling powerless to help them.  Through this season of your parenting journey, you will discover amazing comfort and encouragement at New Vision Counseling.  When you invite us into your story you will no longer be alone. We will remind you that you are not who your teenager says you are.  We will remind you that life is full of seasons and encourage you with guidance and practical strategies. And we won’t just listen to your struggles, we will jump into them with you.

How We Help

We will teach you techniques for communicating and setting boundaries with your teen, while processing fears and frustrations along the way.  Professional support and a non-judgmental ear can be a breath of fresh air when you’re battling the uncertainties of parenting teenagers

We are experts in CBT (Cognitive behavioral Therapy) and other strategies that are proven to work.  We are great at connecting with young people and helping them feel valued and heard. We understand developmental phases, relationships, resistance, and transition. We specialize in
