Accepting new clients for in-person or telehealth therapy services! Sometimes life throws us difficult circumstances that are beyond our control, and it can leave us with feelings of hopelessness. These “stuck” moments of adversity can also be viewed as our greatest opportunities for personal growth, and I genuinely believe every client can benefit from this philosophy. Ultimately, once the dust settles from our initial trauma, our character can be measured by our level of determination and how we choose to respond to adverse life experiences, of course, with the appropriate guidance/support from our support system.

What does it mean to live your best life? To experience serenity? How about adventure? Clarity? Happiness? Do you ever wonder if you were meant to have these experiences, and more? If you can wonder it, if you can imagine it, then you can dream it into being. You may need to learn new skills, develop new tools, identify the false and limiting beliefs that hold you back. Is this possible? Certainly. You just need a dream (a goal), and the right support.

Children, adolescents, and adults who have faced challenging experiences in their lives or who are currently facing challenging experiences in their lives need and deserve to exist in spaces where they feel safe, can be heard and are accepted as they are. They often come to therapy because they believe they deserve to heal from their past experiences or cope with current experiences for themselves and those around them. Many of them also come to believe that they are inherently worthy of existing in a space that is safe and accepting of their authentic selves, which can be very freeing.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Cedar Rapids or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Cedar Rapids, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Cedar Rapids.
