When looking for support for a very emotional daughter, you may consider counseling. Counseling, also referred to as therapy or talk therapy, aims to help an individual feel better, facilitate change, and overcome obstacles or challenges. Counseling is used to treat specific mental health conditions, including anxiety or depression, as well as to solve relationship challenges, improve stress management, and find clarity within life or career decisions. If you have a very emotional daughter, a trained counselor can help alleviate symptoms and provide a course of treatment that will greatly improve both her and your quality of life.
This means that if you and your daughter are struggling to find relief, if your daughter is feeling distressed or overwhelmed, or if she is simply exhausted from trying to meet the various expectations in life, you do not have to continue alone. At True North Counseling, we are ready and able to help find treatment that will improve your day-to-day life. Counseling can help you and your family overcome challenges and live without unwanted distress. Counseling is often discussed when talking about anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and substance abuse, but counseling can also help if your daughter is struggling with grief, panic attacks, anger, communication, school difficulties, bullying, and so much more. When feeling overwhelmed, lost, confused, or struggling with symptoms that impact our ability to enjoy daily tasks and activities, it can be helpful to have the unbiased and outside perspective of a professional. We believe in counseling, because it can help you and your family find clarification, move forward, and feel better in your life more quickly than on your own.
When you are ready to find support for your very emotional daughter, and begin working with us at True North Counseling, we will start with a thorough assessment. This is because no one individual is the same. Each family or individual will have different challenges, different wants, and a different goal for counseling. A thorough assessment can help your counselor better understand the various emotions your daughter is feeling, what situations or individuals have shaped her beliefs, what she most values, and why those values hold such importance. This is important because when a counselor better understands your individual circumstances, a counselor can more quickly help you find relief from your challenges and move towards where you want to be. At True North Counseling, we begin all of our sessions with this type of thorough assessment.
Our goal through counseling is to connect deeply with our counseling patient, because we believe the more we can help you connect with the authentic, wise part of yourself, then the more you can find contentment and satisfaction in your life. This is the opposite of how many of us are living today. Instead of feeling led by contentment and satisfaction, we are far too often feeling as though fear and anxiety are the ones driving our choices and behavior. True North Counseling operates under the principle that certainty comes from being your authentic self, without worry of what others may think. It’s the intersection of emotion and logic that comes together to give you confidence, strength, and the certainty that you are right where you are supposed to be.
