Online Counseling for women in Virginia, North Carolina, UTAH, and Florida.

How can you take care of everyone else if you aren’t taking care of yourself?

It’s Time To Get Rid Of Self- Doubt And Gain Self-Confidence To Live The Life You Desire.

Reality Therapists in Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida

You carry everybody’s burdens, including your own, and it’s becoming too much for you. You’re feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, lonely, unappreciated, and so many other things that you haven’t been able to share with anyone. You’ve been feeling like this for months, maybe years, and you’re over it. You’re sick of worrying about what others will think and say and you’re ready to live your life on your terms.  

Women come to us feeling just like you. Together, we rebuild a life of joy, peace, and balance. We help you reduce stress, improve relationships, and become comfortable in the skin you’re in without trying to make everybody else happy. As Reality Therapists, we understand that your past is important, but we focus on your present and future, giving you a safe, nonjudgmental space to process your thoughts and feelings, so you can identify solutions and make immediate changes to create a life that works for you.

You may have had therapy before, but you haven’t had therapy like this

We are real, honest, down-to-earth, licensed, inclusive therapists who aren’t afraid to challenge you. In sessions with us, you will laugh, you will cry, and you will become more assertive and more confident than you’ve ever been. We are your advocates and want you to live a life of peace with self-confidence and self-love, so we ask the tough questions and encourage self-exploration to help you become your best, authentic self.  

We were you. Each of us have lived this life and had to learn how to make ourselves a priority again. We were overwhelmed, stressed, carried emotional burdens and struggled with making decisions, because we were too worried about what our parents, friends, colleagues, and significant others might think. What we wanted for ourselves always came second to what everyone else wanted and needed. While we each have unique challenges, we’re no strangers to stress, overwhelm, and loneliness. We did the work to manage stress and learn self-love and acceptance, and we are now teaching other women how to do their work, so they can learn it too.

Why women choose to work with us

Women who come to us describe us as genuine, transparent, authentic, and caring. We’re therapists, but we’re human first. As women ourselves, we know your struggle. The choice to even come to therapy was a struggle. You thought about how taking time and money for yourself will affect your family and others. You’ve wanted to do this for so long, but you keep putting it off because something else or someone else always needs to be taken care of first. We’ve been there. Our goal is to help you see that you are important and taking care of your mental and emotional needs is not a selfish act. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to take care of anyone else.

Our therapists are trained in a multitude of strategies and you will work 1 on 1 with your therapist to not only set goals, but to help you determine which strategies will help you reach them.

Reality/Choice Therapy

 

The goal of Reality/Choice Therapy is to solve problems, rebuild connections, and begin working toward a better future. It focuses on the present, not the past and focuses energy on changing thoughts and behavior. The therapist works with you to figure out what you want and how to change your current behavior to bring you closer to your goals.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy

A collaborative approach that concentrates on finding solutions in present time and exploring your hope for the future to find a quicker resolution of presenting problems. This method teaches you what you need to do in order to improve your life and with the appropriate coaching and questioning, you will be capable of finding the best solutions.

Person Centered Therapy

You are encouraged to take more of a lead in discussions, so in the process, you will discover your own solutions. The therapist acts as  compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment, and acknowledging your experience without moving the discussion in another direction until you are ready. The therapist is there to encourage and support you and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

This form of psychotherapy treats problems and boosts happiness by modifying dysfunctional thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It focuses on solutions,  encouraging you to challenge distorted thinking and change negative patterns of behavior.
