If we aren’t able to help you, we’ll assist in finding someone who can!
Anxiety & OCD
Do you worry a lot? Do you find that you have to do things yourself in order to have them done right? Are you having panic attacks out of the blue? Do you get stuck in thoughts or do thoughts intrude on your daily life that are upsetting or disturbing? We have experience and training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Response Prevention, the preferred treatment for OCD and anxiety.
Caregiving & Self Care
Do you put other people’s needs before your own? Are you caring for a sick and/or aging loved one? Do you feel alone and overburdened by the responsibility? Do you have trouble asking for help? Or, is your work primarily centered on taking care of others? We work with therapists, medical personnel and other helping professionals.
Grief & Loss
Are you having a hard time with the loss of a beloved friend or family member? Do you feel that the people around you don’t understand or relate? Are friends encouraging you to get a new pet, or expressing surprise that you haven’t “gotten over” the loss of your companion? There isn’t a wrong way to grieve. Grief isn’t a linear process, it changes you. You aren’t alone. Whether your loss was recent or ten years ago, we can help.
Chronic Illness & Chronic Pain
Living with a chronic illness like HIV, depression, anxiety, diabetes, cancer presents multiple challenges. These can include navigating medical systems, advocating for yourself, learning your limits and communicating them to others, and coping with medication side-effects. We can support you in finding solutions and some relief from your pain.
Aging & Life Transitions
Did you or your spouse recently retire? Are you wondering what is next for you? Are you looking back at your accomplishments and the things you wanted to accomplish in the previous chapters of your life? We can help you navigate these experiences.
Couples and Relationships
Are you and your partner having a rough patch? Feeling like you just aren’t able to communicate? Are you and your partner talking about opening up your relationship? Are you polyamorous and looking for a therapist who recognizes different ways that people make relationships work? We will work with couples and other relationship constellations whether monogamous, monogamish, or polyamorous.
At Hawthorne Tree, we know that being lesbian, gay, bi, queer or transgender is not necessarily the central reason you seek help. We are dedicated to working with members of our community and have experience and expertise in working with LGBTQIA people on issues directly and indirectly related to sexual orientation or gender.
