Travis Hill, LPC/MHSP works with a variety of issues working with with both individuals and couples. The type of counseling we do is Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT means that we discuss your thoughts, actions, and how they relate to each other. The work in therapy is goal-oriented, meaning that we will work with small, measurable goals to achieve your desired results. The types of issues we work on include Anger Management, Relationship Counseling, Anxiety, Depression, and Career Counseling.
Do you find yourself feeling angry all the time? Do you sometimes get upset over even the smallest issues? Do you think you are making a good decision to get angry at the time, yet feel guilty afterward (such as a couple’s argument or road rage)? Anger management can help.
Anger management is not about getting rid of anger (that is unrealistic- anger is a normal emotion just like happiness and sadness), it is about taking a realistic look at the problems you are facing, the negative thoughts you think while problems are occurring and learning new steps to take to prevent problem behavior, thoughts, and issues in the future. Don’t let your emotions control your family, your work, or your life.
Let us help. Sometimes just beginning anger management is the biggest step. Our emphasis in anger management is cognitive-behavioral therapy. This means that we discuss your thoughts, actions, and how they relate to each other. The work in therapy is goal oriented, meaning that we will work with small, measurable goals to achieve your desired results.
If you’d like to work on your anger before beginning counseling, you can get a copy of my book, Navigate Anger, on Amazon or iBooks. It is available in paper, e-book, and audiobook formats.
Relationship counseling in my practice is one-on-one with the therapist and not couples. Why? I believe the counseling office should be place where people can temporarily remove themselves from their world to relax and get a better perspective on their life and their relationships.
Relationship counseling is not only about romantic relationships. It could involve learning to get along better with your boss, or wanting to be a better parent.
Do you have consistent feelings of anxiety or panic attacks? Do you get socially anxious, have performance anxiety, or even trouble in engaging in day-to-day life because of anxiety? Anxiety is a cognitive, behavioral, and biological problem that is best described as excessive fear. That-fear can be due to specific reasons (such as a fear of heights), for general reasons (such as excess stress from work or life), or for no specified reason (such as the body responding to stimuli through generalized panic attacks).
Physical symptoms can occur such as hypertension, increased blood pressure, hot flashes, chest pains, tiredness, headaches, shortness of breath, and stomach problems (many people confuse their first anxiety attack with a heart attack). Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been shown to be as effective as medication.
Are you dissatisfied with your job? Looking for something new, or maybe just looking to refresh your outlook at your current job? People are working longer hours at work, despite the fact that technology was supposed to reduce that amount and make us more efficient.
Job dissatisfaction is high, and people are feeling social pressures to perform well, perform for a long time, and still have energy and time to spend on other life issues (kids, family, and friends). Unlike the past, you will not likely work for the same company into retirement.
Companies are cutting back employees and benefits, while employee disloyalty rises. You spend 35% of your lifetime at work… shouldn’t it feel more rewarding to you? Career counseling and coaching can help you with your work/life problems. We can help you with not just work issues, but all areas that your work life can affect.
