Adolescent Struggles

Who am I and what is going on in my life? Adolescents struggle with a variety of adjustments in life. Sometimes it can be stressful as they move into adulthood. The new responsibilities that the impending adulthood promises can be frightening. Adolescent’s feelings are often a challenge and they must learn to deal with them in appropriate ways.

Grief/Loss Support

Grief is a response to loss--grief can be complicated by circumstances surrounding the loss. We all need help in maneuvering the darkness of our pain.

Addictions

This is one of the most prevalent problems facing us today. Addictions to alcohol and drugs affect our social lives and family relationships. Our physical health is often affected. An example of this is dependency on prescription medications and/or street drugs. Technology has opened up new avenues for addiction to pornography and unhealthy sexual preoccupations. Another area of addiction is entertainment, such as sports gambling.

Spiritual Issues

All of us go through personal issues, job loss, changes in life situations, parent-child issues, marital problems, etc. We often question God as to why this is happening to us. Why has God abandoned me? Why am I not feeling close to God? In many other ways we are looking for answers to our spiritual concerns.

Stress Management

Stress is a part of all our lives. It is a reaction to many common situations in life, such as work, children, marriage, extended families, neighbors, etc. It is one of the major causes of health issues. One of the efforts made in counseling is to help someone understand their own personality and how that may be related to self-induced stress.
