Life Changes

We can help. 

College is a whole new world! It can be exciting, scary, overwhelming, isolating, you may feel that everything you have always known to be true, is now different. You now have the sole responsibility of "adulting" and "adulting" can be hard- especially if you do not have the coping skills and resources to adjust. 

We can help you with Time Management, Balance, Homesickness, Diet/Nutrition, Social Problems, Relationships, and even figuring out a major. Our Board Certified therapists are dually trained Expert Level Life Coaches. We support you, listen, and will be your guide as you lean in and begin to live the life you dream of. 

We work with you to create a safe place to navigate the messy stuff and help you be the "best you" possible. We make doing therapy easy, normal, and convenient. Your space, your schedule, your way. 

Depression

We can help. 

Depression can make it hard to get out of bed, go to classes, and is the number one reason students drop out of school. When left untreated, depression can lead to other symptoms or even suicide.  It can interfere with your life, making important everyday tasks such as working, studying, sleeping, and eating difficult. 

 A few things to look for:

  • Physical Well-being Symptoms: Changes in sleep habits, whether sleeping more or — more frequently — difficulty sleeping. Appetite changes, including either a loss of appetite or overeating

  • Emotional Symptoms: Sadness, feelings of being overwhelmed, feelings of hopelessness, and feelings of powerlessness

  • Thinking Symptoms: Seeing a glass ‘half-empty,’ having trouble concentrating and paying attention, resulting in difficulty in reading and completing work tasks

 

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Have you experienced extreme sadness or hopelessness?

  • Does your family have a history of depression?

  • Have you turned to heavy drinking or drug use to relieve feelings of hopelessness?

  • Have you experienced invasive thoughts of death or suicide?

 

These symptoms do not necessarily mean that you are depressed. Life is complicated and we all face some of these issues from time to time. However, if you begin to experience these symptoms regularly and they are getting in the way of you living your life, let's chat. We can help you find your joy. 

If you are having thoughts of suicide, please don't hesitate. Immediately call 1-800-273-TALK or go to the nearest emergency room. 

Anxiety

We can help. 

Some stress and anxiety are a part of most people’s lives. So, experiencing these feelings does not necessarily mean that you have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders occur when anxiety interferes with your daily life, halting your ability to function, and causing an immense amount of stress and fear. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) reports that anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. today. The ADAA says that nearly 75% of those affected by an anxiety disorder will experience their first episode before the age of 22. 

A few symptoms to look for in anxiety disorders may include:

  • Feelings of stress and apprehension

  • Irritability

  • Trouble concentrating

  • Fearfulness

  • Sweating and dizziness

  • Shortness of breath

  • Irregular heartbeat

  • Muscle pain and tension

  • Headaches

  • Frequent upset stomach or diarrhea

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Have you experienced extreme sadness or hopelessness?

  • Does your family have a history of depression?

  • Have you turned to heavy drinking or drug use to relieve feelings of hopelessness?

  • Have you experienced invasive thoughts of death or suicide?


One of the most important things to remember about anxiety disorders is that brief and occasional flashes of anxious feelings or behavior do not automatically indicate a mental illness. But if the anxious feelings persist, or if they begin to manifest in obsessive behavior or an overwhelming sense of fear, then it’s time to seek help. We can help you take your life back. 

Eating Disorders

We can help. 

Millions of college students — both women and men alike — develop eating disorders during their college years. The vast majority don’t seek help or don’t realize the extent of their problem.
Eating disorders are extreme behaviors, emotions, and attitudes that revolve around food and weight perceptions. 

The signs and symptoms of eating disorders vary by person and condition and many depend on the mental state of the individual suffering from the disorder. However, there are several red flags that are common factors for anorexia, bulimia, and binging. These include:

  • Distorted or poor body image

  • Excessive exercise

  • Irregular heartbeats

  • Dehydration

  • Feeling like eating is out of control

  • Fear of eating in public

  • Constantly making excuses for eating habits

Ask yourself: 

  • Do you refuse to eat food or skip meals?

  • Do you fear eating in public with others?

  • Do you count calories out of a need for control?

  • Do you have strict eating habits that you feel guilty and ashamed for breaking?

  • Do you have a history of perfectionism?

  • Are you obsessed or dissatisfied with your weight or body shape?

  • Do you find yourself eating large amounts of food and then purging or making yourself vomit?

  • Have you avoided eating for a day then overate when you became too hungry?

 

We all have days where our self-image isn’t the best. We look in the mirror and sigh because all we see are our flaws. We sometimes don’t eat, forget to eat, or eat junk when we’re stressed or have an over-full schedule. Remember that a few occurrences of each does not mean someone is at risk. However, if you answered yes to any of these questions, you could be developing an eating disorder. Recognizing that you have an eating disorder is often the first step to recovery. Many who develop a disorder feel a pressure to be thin or a certain weight, have a distorted or very poor body image, or the stress in their lives makes them feel out of control.  If this sounds like you, let's chat. We have Board Certified Therapists and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist | Licensed Dietitians looking forward to "meeting you"!
