Relief From Depression, Anxiety, & Other Mental Health Disorders

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, approximately one in five adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year, as well as one in five youth aged thirteen to eighteen, and thirteen percent of children aged eight to fifteen years old. It’s important to know that you are not alone and there are treatment options to help you live a better life, such as, professional counseling.

Through professional counseling at Flatirons Counseling Services, we will help you better understand the underlying causes of your depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorders; as well as provide you with skills to manage your symptoms and behaviors to ultimately provide relief from the debilitating effects of mental health disorders, so you can live your best life.

Greater Self-Acceptance and Self-Esteem

In life, there are many influencers for low self-acceptance and self-esteem — mental health disorders, traumatic events, family and social environments, media and body image, etc. When you receive professional counseling services, our experienced and devoted therapists will work with you through cognitive therapy to better understand what triggers your negative beliefs about yourself and where they stem from. They will also provide you with the skills necessary to develop a greater sense of self-worth, self-acceptance, and self-esteem.

Ability To Change Unwanted Behaviors/Habits  

Whether you struggle with anger management, drug abuse or alcohol addiction, pornography or sex addiction, or another unwanted behavior or habit, professional counseling can help. Our therapists at Flatirons Counseling Services are understanding, compassionate, and will work with you on an individual level to recognize the underlying causes of your behaviors/habits and create a personalized therapy program to break your cycle of compulsive behaviors — so you can gain control over your life.

Better Relationships

There are many factors that can cause strain on spousal and familial relationships — lack of communication, affairs, divorce, step and blended families, mental health, addiction, and more. Through professional counseling at Flatirons Counseling Services, we will create a counseling program tailored to your needs and provide you with essential skills and strategies to solve the underlying causes of your relational distress which will improve your connection and help you live in harmony.

Improved Coping Skills

Unfortunately, there are moments in life, such as, a death of a loved one, that leads us to feel an intolerable amount of stress, despair, anger, and sadness. By seeking professional counseling during these difficult times, you will receive professional and personalized care to help you gain improved coping skills to help you better manage life’s difficult moments in a healthy manner.
