Individual counseling

There are times when it is helpful to have an objective person in your life when things can be challenging and stressful. Having the right support makes a difference. We can help.

Throughout our lives, people can experience many different challenges such as: difficulty adjusting to young children, disciplining children, problems in school, job struggles, marital issues, or making and maintaining meaningful relationships. These struggles can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, confused, or overwhelmed. During times like these, we can benefit from support to help with these problems that seem beyond our control.

Counseling is a process that can help people identify effective strategies to cope with difficult situations and to achieve their goals. While some people who seek counseling have chronic emotional difficulties, others are dealing with life events and are in need of an objective person in their lives, someone who doesn't judge and who can help them see new alternatives.

Individual counseling is a collaborative effort between you and your counselor. Our goal is to provide an open, supportive, and confidential environment for you to address the issues that are concerning you. 

Our counselors are highly trained to help you work through all life, career, family, and relationship difficulties or transitions. Some issues we address are:

  • depression, anxiety, and stress
  • conflict resolution in the workplace and at home
  • intimacy and trust
  • self-esteem issues
  • developing healthy boundaries
  • the connection between physical health and mental health
  • codependency
  • sexual difficulties
  • fertility and family planning struggles
  • post partum depression, and young children
  • childhood wounds related to alcoholism, incest, and other traumas
  • addictions and 12-step programs
  • effective communication and anger management
  • developing your ability to express healthy emotions
  • money and power struggles
  • stage of life difficulties 
  • grief, loss, loneliness
  • exploring purpose and fostering creativity

Adolescence and childhood can be very difficult times to navigate. Sometimes struggles in childhood become something that is difficult for parents to manage. Here at Prairie Wellness, we can assist in developing interventions and strategies in collaboration with parents to effectively support their children. In an effort to help children, we aim to improve their coping skills and help them practice these skills so that they can be applied at home and at school. Our counselors have extensive experience with children and adolescents. We can help with issues such as: 

  • depression
  • anger and aggression issues
  • oppositional behaviors
  • learning disorders
  • attachment issues
  • school phobia or school refusal
  • bereavement or loss
  • separation and divorce
  • substance abuse
  • communication skills
  • self-destructive behaviors
  • bullying
  • management of educational difficulties
  • self-esteem issues
