Healing is the pathway to transformation.

Therapy can be a shelter in the storm. 

Life is full of change. Therapy can be like a life preserver when you're drowning or an oasis in the desert when your life feels empty with no hope on the horizon. Transition and adjustments can be difficult even if the change is good. Therapy from time to time can help you through life's stormy seasons. 



Therapy can be your own mental and emotional gym where you can get stronger by exercising your brain and expanding your mind. You may need more than just a little support. 

For bigger problems and symptoms.

Therapy can be a really big deal to handle more serious or long term symptoms. Many symptoms are simply coping skills that developed in response to stressful situations including trauma. 

For bigger problems and symptoms.

A symptom is something that is outside your "normal". Here's some types of symptoms. 


an inability to stop doing something despite consequences. Addictions can include any out of control use or behaviors such as drug use (illegal and prescription drugs), alcohol, food, sex, pornography, spending, gambling, relationships, work, exercise, etc. 


Lack of motivation, trouble with relationships, poor job or school performance, breaking the law, or violating another's rules or boundaries, aggression, compulsions (hoarding, excessive hand-washing, skin picking, counting, etc.) 


Anxiety, depression, phobias, crying spells, rage episodes, prolonged grief, shame and low self esteem


Headaches and migraines, body aches and pains, high blood pressure, rashes, paralysis, tics, stuttering just to name a few. 

What is trauma?

Trauma is an overwhelming physical or psychological shock to the body and senses such as physical injury, being a victim of abuse, sexual assault, or being exposed to violence or witnessing someone else's traumatic event. Traumatic experiences can effect emotions, shape behaviors, and result in failures to mature to our fullest potential. URGES Therapy can help you become the boss of your own life rather than a slave to your symptoms.

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and intense focus. It is an altered psychological state characterized by relaxed muscle tone, slowed breath and enhanced suggestibility. It is more like “daydreaming” than sleeping. Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis during therapy and is a powerful technique used in the medical and mental health fields to help relieve pain and other physical symptoms. It can also help alleviate mood disturbances such as anxiety and depression. Hypnosis can work below the conscious level, making it a great way to help clients access stored information that may be driving current symptoms.
