Individual counseling is often used to assist an individual struggling in one or more areas of his or her life. Individual counseling is often used to help adults resolve internal conflicts, identify and address personal blind spots, improve self confidence, grow spiritually and/or emotionally, and cope with the stressors of life. Couples counseling is an approach designed to assist couples in resolving interpersonal conflicts that hinder health relationships.
Addictions impact many individuals and families. Individuals become addicted to chemicals, alcohol, sex, eating, love, gambling, relationships, work, and so forth. Admitting a problem exists is the first step to bringing about the necessary changes an individual so desperately desires. We understand how unknowingly a person can fall into an addiction and how difficult it is to leave it behind.

Dr. Edwards is a Certified Anger Management Specialist, trained to assist individuals in learning to manage anger outbursts. These outbursts of anger are often learned behaviors, sometimes passed down from generation to generation. Unresolved feelings of hurt, fear, and frustration are often the core issues behind anger. If left unmanaged, anger can lead to bitterness, destroy relationships and the self worth of those who are the target of the anger. We can help you work through past or present issues that may be a barrier to you being the person you always aspired to become.
