Whether you are experiencing behavioral health concerns or struggling with a challenging life event Positive Psychotherapy can help!  



Behavioral Health

Major Life Events

Major Life Events are often things we have little control over - people like to label them as "good" or "bad."  Regardless of the labels we put on them, these events all cause stress and/or discomfort of some kind because we are required to adjust. Our emotional and behavioral responses to these events are determined in large part by the skills we have. 


Positive Psychotherapy will help you change your responses to life events by teaching you new skills. First, we will help you process the meaning of the event and then when you are ready we will help you learn the skills of 

grieving, acceptance, coping, and empowerment to help you manage the current event and all future events.
