Inspired Healing Services, LLC is a counseling practice with Licensed Counselors and Counselors and Social Workers in training, in West Haven, Connecticut, who specializes in anxiety, trauma, career stress, and internal conflict. We also sees clients for existential challenges, including those due to life transitions and a general confusion about what direction they want their life to head in.
When working with clients for anxiety, our team uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients understand how their symptoms are presenting. This often entails unpacking their particular distortions, their beliefs about failing at work, and any generalizations that may be harmful to their perceptions of themselves. Our approach is client-centered, and we really strives to help clients challenge their negative cognitive processes in order to get to a place of greater self-acceptance and empowerment.
We also uses trauma-focused CBT when helping clients navigate trauma. This may entail having clients rewrite their own narratives; we often weave in mindfulness skills. This can help clients get back in touch with their present reality, and reduce the extent to which they feel the past controls their thoughts and memories. We are careful and compassionate when working with trauma, and always open to looking at current triggers and how the trauma response is affecting them.
