Outpatient Counseling & Therapy Services

Seasons provides counseling to adults, couples, and families. Counseling may focus on depression, anxiety, unwanted behaviors, self-esteem, relationships, anger, and support in making life decisions.

Specialized counseling services Seasons provides:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based trauma therapy that focuses on unprocessed memories that contain negative emotions, sensations, and beliefs. Bilateral stimulation: visual, auditory, or tactile is used to help individual’s reprocess traumatic memories in ways that are no longer damaging. This therapy is done with minimal re-telling of the trauma with the goal of reducing stress levels and improving quality of life.
  • Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a broad-based cognitive-behavioral treatment developed specifically for borderline personality disorder, but is also beneficial for anyone who struggles with emotion regulation. Psychosocial skills training is a large portion of the treatment, and DBT includes skills training within mindfulness. Interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance are skills taught to promote and reframe dysfunctional behaviors to a more functional way of coping and problem-solving.
  • Life Span Integration Therapy utilizes empowerment of the individual to resolve past traumatic issues. Lifespan integration is a gentle, body-based therapeutic method which heals without re-traumatizing by having the therapist guide the client to imaginally re-visit this past memory, bringing into the past whatever is needed to resolve the memory. After the memory is resolved, the therapist leads the client through time to the present using a Time Line of visual images of scenes from the client’s life. This Time Line of memories and images proves to the client’s body-mind system that time has passed and that life is different now, resulting in deep healing.
