Mental Health Counseling

We all face difficult times where we need solace, support, and guidance. At Next Breath Psychology, we provide a safe space for you to navigate your emotions, gain self-awareness, heal from past wounds, and develop coping strategies. We are here to empower you with the help you need as you seek growth and healing.

Individual Counseling

Compassionate Guidance and Personalized Support

Our one-on-one counseling sessions are designed to create a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences. We make sure you feel heard, understood, and valued throughout your therapeutic journey.

A Tailored Approach for Each Individual

We understand that each person is unique, which is why we tailor our counseling to meet your specific needs. Our therapists draw from a variety of interventions, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), neuropsychology, mindfulness, and self-compassion. By combining proven techniques and interventions, we help you gain insight, develop coping skills, and equip you on your journey toward wholeness.

Addressing a Variety of Concerns

Our Individual Counseling services cover a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, trauma, and more. Whether you are struggling with past experiences, facing challenging life transitions, or seeking personal growth, our therapists are equipped to provide the necessary support and guidance.

Holistic Approach to Well-Being

We believe in a holistic approach to counseling that considers your overall well-being. We incorporate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with other interventions, utilizing mindfulness, non-judgment, and holistic perspectives to foster long-term change and personal growth. By addressing the underlying factors contributing to your difficulties, we help you develop strategies for sustainable positive change.

Family Therapy

Cultivating Family Harmony: Discover Healing and Connection through Experiential Family Therapy 

How we relate to our family shapes how we relate to the world. At Next Breath Psychology, we understand the profound impact of family dynamics on our sense of safety, connection, and ability to form healthy relationships. For families seeking more love, connection, and peace, we offer Experiential Family Therapy that inspires healing, attachment, and the ability to communicate with authenticity and compassion. 

Nurturing Family Bonds

In the sanctuary of safety, we will explore your family’s individual and collective strengths and challenges as well as limiting beliefs, fostering a deeper understanding of each other and promoting growth and resilience.

Propelling Intimacy and Connection

Through a range of present-focused interventions, exercises, and communication techniques, we guide families toward deeper intimacy and connection. Our goal is to empower you to express yourselves authentically, resolve conflicts constructively, and build a foundation of trust and understanding.

Honoring Diversity and Embracing Wholeness

Next Breath Family Therapy honors diversity in all its forms. We welcome and embrace whomever you consider family, whether it be biological relatives, chosen family, or blended families. Our approach celebrates the unique dynamics and challenges that arise within your family system, fostering a journey from separation to connection, and from dysfunction to wholeness. 

Transform Your Family, Transform the World

By nurturing balance and harmony within your family, you contribute to creating more compassionate and aware communities, states, nations, and ultimately, a more compassionate world. Together, we can create a ripple effect of healing and love that extends far beyond the confines of your family unit.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy—also known as couples counseling or relationship therapy—is a specialized form of therapy designed to help couples improve their relationship dynamics and strengthen their emotional connection. There are many benefits to its use, including these top three.

Benefit #1: Improved Communication

One of the key benefits of couples therapy is improved communication. Therapists provide a safe and supportive environment where couples can express their thoughts and emotions openly, while also learning effective communication techniques. Through guided discussions and active listening, couples gain valuable insights into each other’s perspectives, fostering empathy and understanding. These enhanced communication skills enable couples to resolve conflicts more constructively and build a stronger foundation for their relationship.

Benefit #2: Growth and Self-Awareness

Another significant benefit of couples therapy is the opportunity for personal growth and self-awareness. Therapy sessions encourage individuals to reflect on their own behaviors, beliefs, and patterns within the relationship. Couples gain a deeper understanding of their own strengths and areas for improvement, as well as how their actions impact their partner and the relationship. With this newfound self-awareness, couples can work towards personal growth, making positive changes that contribute to a healthier and more fulfilling partnership.

Benefit #3: Healing

Couples therapy also provides a platform for addressing unresolved issues and healing past wounds. Many relationships face challenges stemming from past traumas, unresolved conflicts, or trust issues. Through couples therapy, partners can explore and process these underlying issues in a safe and structured environment. Therapists help couples navigate through difficult emotions, facilitate forgiveness, and guide them toward healing and reconciliation.

Addiction Therapy

A Compassionate Perspective on Recovery

Our therapists offer a unique blend of clinical expertise and experiential insight. The addiction counseling services provided at Next Breath Counseling offer a fresh perspective that aligns with current research and modern approaches to addiction treatment.

Addiction as a Human Condition

Next Breath views addiction as part of the human condition, existing on a spectrum of severity rather than being solely a moral issue or simple choice. Like every living being, including a single-cell amoeba, our instinct drives us to seek warmth and pleasure while avoiding cold and pain. Some individuals turn to distractions like social media or food, while others resort to shopping, substance use, or sex to navigate pleasure and pain. These behaviors become “clinically significant” when they interrupt the well-being of our relationships, livelihood, health, or harmony.

Uncovering the Nature of Your Struggle

In our addiction counseling sessions, we will embark on a compassionate exploration of your past, patterns, triggers, and beliefs. Together, we seek to gain a clear understanding of the nature of your addiction. Our approach cultivates self-compassion, allowing you to witness your experiences with non-judgment and curiosity, rather than reacting habitually to avoid pain or seek pleasure.

Learning New Skills and Embracing Balance

Your recovery journey involves acquiring new skills and adopting a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle for both mind and body. We offer evidence-based practices like Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention and other effective techniques to support your recovery process. These skills empower you to stay present, manage cravings, and build resilience. For more information about our training and nutritional support services, click here.
