RELATIONSHIPS & FAMILY MATTERS
Relationships form the most important part of our lives. Without contact with other people, life would be unbearable to most of us. We are challenged in relationships with our families, friends, work, and intimate relationships. Most people who come into counseling are concerned about their interactions with others. If you feel stressed or unhappy over family of origin (parents, siblings), present relationship with your partner, children, or loneliness, our experienced Counselors can help improve your relationships and bring Cheer into your life. * Relationship conflicts * Parent and child difficulties * Grief and loss * Divorce * Child custody * Trust issues, cheating.
ANXIETY & DEPRESSION
Depression and anxiety are among the most common problems our counselors see after relationship issues. All too often, doctors give you medication and a psychiatric diagnosis when life isn't going your way. Most of the time medications become unnecessary as people learn to manage their life challenges with new ways of thinking. You can too! * Depression * Anxiety * Stress * Trauma * Obsessions and Compulsions.
CHILDREN AND TEENS
Many children and teens have problems related to grades,behaviors at home or school and making or keeping friends. If you have concerns about your child, we work with both you and your child to help smooth the growing up period. We also work with children who have more serious problems such as attention deficit or relationship problems such as Asperger's (Autistic spectrum disorder). If you are concerned about your child's grades or behavior, then we can help you learn to work together as a team. Both you and your child can be happier.
We live in a stressful society where drugs and alcohol use is often encouraged as a way of coping with problems. Nobody ever thinks that they are the one who is going to develop a problem with substance abuse. It sneaks up on people when they are least expecting it. If you think that you are having a problem with substance abuse, our unique cognitive/behavioral treatment can work. There is no need to follow the 12-steps, to admit to powerlessness, to insanity, or to recover only one-day-at-a-time. We help build you up and teach you permanant recovery methods that last a life-time. * Alcohol * Prescription drugs * Illegal drugs
Many people suffer from anger over many small slights. They know that there isn't a reason to be chronically upset, but feel that they can't help it. Chronic anger puts a stress on your body and on relationships. Anger management can be learned. Your life can be calmer and more peaceful when you learn anger management skills. With cognitive behavioral therapy, we don't just teach you to manage your anger, but to learn to be a calm person who doesn't have problems with getting angry easily. * Understanding anger * Alternative thinking to prevent anger * Controlling your anger * Warning signs and triggers.

SELF DEFEATING BELIEFS
These are irrational beliefs that lead to problems such as depression,
anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse. Most stress and unhappiness
is rooted in self-defeating beliefs. As part of therapy, it is essential
that you identify and work on changing these harmful beliefs. This
questionnaire will help you better understand which of these are a problem for you. Changing self-defeating/irrational beliefs is the basis for
cognitive/behavioral therapy - one of the most effective forms of therapy known, and used at Cheer Counseling. http://www.testandcalc.com/Self_Defeating_Beliefs/questtxt.asp
