Individual & Couples Counseling

You deserve to live the best version of your life. So, if something is bringing you down, individual counseling or couples counseling may be the way to turn your life around. Reach out to divorce coach, Nancy Payne Lewis, for the support you need to feel happy and confident in your daily life.

Individuals

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you feel unsure of yourself?
  • Do you worry about making the right decisions?
  • Do you have trouble getting yourself to a party because you don't think you have anything to offer?
  • Do you find yourself repeating negative patterns over and over again?
  • Is there a history of depression in your family?


If you've answered yes to these questions, it may be time to consider meeting with a professional. Depression and anxiety are feelings that are a part of life, but sometimes they can get in the way of living. Nancy Payne Lewis will teach you how to recognize these negative feelings and behaviors and develop a set of tools for managing them.

Understanding Yourself

Everyone is unique. Extroverts tend to be gregarious, assertive people who look for excitement in life. Introverts, in contrast, tend to be more reserved, less outgoing, and less sociable. There is no right or wrong here, but understanding who you are can go a long way toward helping you feel better about yourself. Hiding from the world isn't helpful; knowing that you need a night to yourself is a good thing.

Do you wonder if you are drinking too much wine with dinner or smoking too much pot? Don't kid yourself—marijuana might not be the 'gateway drug' that some people say it is, but it can be just as addicting as any other illegal substance and comes with its own set of problems. Perhaps you've been spending too much money, gambling away your savings, or wasting hours on the internet. All of these habits—whether they're substances you ingest or behavioral highs—are preventing you from acknowledging your feelings. Numbing or ignoring your feelings doesn't make them go away—it often makes them worse.

Couples

Relationships can be rewarding; however, they can also be a source of stress and negativity. It is difficult to decide whether or not a relationship is worth saving. There is so much to think about and discuss. Couples counseling is the best way to talk about your questions and fears. Take a minute to reflect on the following questions:

  • Is your relationship too good to leave and too bad to stay?
  • Are you wondering what happened to your relationship?
  • Do you feel as though you and your partner are on different paths?
  • Are you lonely and sad?
     


Managing a Relationship

It's normal for couples to go through periods of being closer together or further apart. However, sometimes, people can get stuck and have difficulty communicating.

Nancy teaches you how to ask your partner for what you need and how to fight fair. She helps you understand how your family history can affect your relationships and how to get around it. Regardless of your circumstances, she will help you strengthen your relationship or separate with respect.
