Anger Management Classes
Anger management is the process of learning to recognize the signs that you are becoming angry and to take positive action to deal with the emotions brought on by a situation. Anger management therapy and anger management groups focus on providing methods and tools for managing that anger and expressing it in an effective manner.
Anger is a natural part of life and a very important and healthy emotion when expressed appropriately. Anger is not only an emotion, but also a physical reaction: our blood pressure and heart rate rise along with the level of adrenaline in our body. Unfortunately, when expressed inappropriately, anger can impair our judgment and thinking, causing us to act irrationally or violently towards others.
Individual counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Individual counseling can help one deal with many personal topics in life such as anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, marriage and relationship challenges, parenting problems, school difficulties, career changes, etc.
Individual counseling (sometimes called psychotherapy, talk therapy, or treatment) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. Counseling allows individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
The practice of assessment entails the collection of information in order to identify, analyze,
evaluate, and address the problems, issues, and circumstances of clients in the counseling
relationship. Assessment is used as a basis for identifying problems, planning interventions,
evaluating and/or diagnosing clients, and informing clients and stakeholders. Many novice
counselors may make the mistake of identifying assessment as a means to an end, such as
providing a label or diagnosis to a client. In this text , assessment will be viewed as a process
essential to all elements of counseling.
Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.
"What you seek is seeking you."

Parenting workshops aren’t just for young or inexperienced parents; they’re for everyone who wants to be a better parent. Even if you keep up with parenting books and blogs, read the latest research and are very involved in your child’s education, parenting classes can give you access to a wealth of knowledge you’ll have a harder time accessing on your own. By choosing to spend a couple evenings in the company of other parents and parenting experts, you’ll gain access to the collective sum of their experience and knowledge.
At the end of the day, it’s true that every child is different. What works for one child may not work for another, and parenting classes can’t solve everything. They can, however, give you strategies that you can apply in your everyday life, help you meet other parents in the same boat and increase your confidence in your own parenting ability.
Home-based therapy takes place at the home of a person in therapy rather than in an office. It can help people who have difficulty getting to private practices or mental health facilities. Factors that could keep someone from getting care include money issues, age, chronic medical issues, agoraphobia, and responsibilities at home or work.
