Avalon Psychotherapy Associates

Empowering You

From the Inside Out

Avalon Psychotherapy Associates provides individual, couple, poly, and family psychotherapy.

We believe in:

The right therapist (not any therapist).

Mind-body unity.

People are not labels or diagnoses.

We each live, grow, and become in social context.

“Symptoms” are not pathology. They helped us survive.

Identity, sexuality, body, food, mood, and well-being are deeply interwoven aspects of self.

Healing beyond coping.

How can therapy and nutrition counseling help me? (Especially during COVID-19…)

 

Everyone is affected by the changes that are happening.

The sense of a loss of control, uncertainty, constant distressing news, social isolation, fear for one’s own health and that of loved ones, job insecurity, and economic stress all affect mental health.

Many people are experiencing increasing feelings and coping strategies that may be more harmful than helpful. It is common to feel that you “just can’t get it together,” or that you can’t follow-through on daily goals. You may see an increase in negative coping behaviors like disordered eating, excessive media consumption, relationship conflicts, or feelings of depression and anxiety.

Feelings of worry, stress, agitation, and overwhelm are common. As social distancing continues, relationships are strained, child-rearing without help or breaks is taxing, separation from loved ones, support systems, and isolation can wear us down.

We know that everyone’s situation is unique. We know some people may be living with unsupportive or dysfunctional family. We know some people are living alone and struggling with loneliness.

And we fear the grief of loss is coming for many. 

Therapy is a healthy lifeline for anyone who is struggling. We can help you move through overwhelming negative feelings, safely experience grief, and help you identify healthy coping practices that can truly get you through this difficult time.

You may be best supported by individual psychotherapy, or you may benefit from a support group for social connection and a safe place to know you are not alone.

Therapy isn’t for those who are unwell or weak.

Therapy is a healthy resource for everyone.
