Why Choose Headspace, LLC

If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, We look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals.

We specialize in the following areas.

Trauma and PTSD

When we experience trauma, our brains need time to process this event to make sense of the experience. If an event is beyond our ability to understand, or if the trauma repeats over time, our brains can have difficulty effectively processing the trauma.
Many victims of childhood abuse, domestic violence, or other violent crimes can develop PTSD, as well as soldiers returning from war. In these cases, PTSD may develop and begin to cause the sufferer to feel unsafe in their current life, even after the traumatic events have passed.

Suicidal Ideation

Suicidal ideation means wanting to take your own life or thinking about suicide. However, there are two kinds of suicidal ideation: passive and active.
Passive suicidal ideation occurs when you wish you were dead or that you could die, but you don't actually have any plans to commit suicide.
Active suicidal ideation, on the other hand, is not only thinking about it but having the intent to commit suicide, including planning how to do it.
Feelings come and go and are not permanent. Even when life seems hopeless, you can get on the road to feeling better with treatment.

Self Esteem

Self-esteem reflects what we think about ourselves. It means we “esteem” and have a good opinion about ourselves. Self-esteem has a significant prospective impact on our life experiences and not the reverse. In other words, high and low self-esteem isn’t dependent on our success or failure.
Self-esteem affects how we think, feel, and behave. It impacts our relationships with others and our relationship with ourselves. We can help you recognize the cause and monitor negative beliefs, doubt, and anxiety in order to alleviate painful feelings and enables you to take constructive action.

Crisis Intervention and Stabilization

Crisis intervention is an immediate and short-term emergency response to mental, emotional, physical, and behavioral distress. Crisis interventions help to restore an individual’s equilibrium to their biopsychosocial functioning and minimize the potential for long-term trauma or distress.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT allows you to focus on inaccurate or false thinking so that you can learn new and better ways to respond to different situations. With this type of therapy, you're learning how to make better choices and decisions to change the way you behave in different situations.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a highly specialized form of CBT, helps to address problems in regulating emotions, impulse control, assertiveness, and relationship conflicts. It balances the use-of-change techniques from CBT with acceptance strategies from Zen practice.
