Chantel Weeks, MCP, LPC
Do you find it hard to complete tasks? Is there something missing from your life? Emotional Wellness can be affected by a lot of different things. Sometimes we just struggle to sit with our feelings, and other times we don’t know where to start to even accept why we feel the way we do. Depression, Anxiety, Postpartum issues, Relationship Struggles, Domestic Violence, Trauma, Sexual Assault, even Politics, Global Crisis, and sometimes just everyday living can really start to play a role in our mental health. Let’s work together to process feelings, to help you feel empowered to take back your emotions and your life so that you can be the best possible version of yourself.
Do you often feel tired, unmotivated, and even uninterested in the things that once brought you joy? Our Physical health is so much more than just exercise and eating well. Sometimes the best thing to make us feel better is working on other aspects of our health. Sometimes it is focusing on how to incorporate mindfulness into our daily routine. Together we can start to come up with goals, with focus on how to incorporate the things that you once loved back into your life. We can work on a plan to overcome the fatigue, to push through the stressors and to make it where you feel like YOU again.
With things being stressful in the world right now, is it often normal to feel alone and isolated. It is a well-known fact that we are social creatures at heart, sometimes that might mean with only certain people, family, or even animals at times. We need to be able to connect to others to feel like we aren’t alone in this world. Social Wellness is huge and sometimes we find ourselves turning down social events, things we know we would probably enjoy, but anxiety takes over and we just can’t make ourselves go. There are times when we feel down, worried, stressed, and just need an outlet to visit with someone, anyone, that can help us navigate through that path. Together we can work on how to improve social aspects of your life. Let's get to a place where we process, engage, talk, laugh, cry, cuss, scream if you need to, so that you can learn to connect with others instead of letting your emotions control you.
Being well with yourself is so much more than religion, it’s a spiritual process. I believe that we are supposed to have passion. A fire that burns within us to do more for ourselves, for our family, for our community and often that is the first thing that we let go when things get rough. It is often challenging to find time to meditate, to pray, to be creative, especially in a world where we work, where we take care of our kids, or families. I believe in using holistic methods to help learn a balance when it comes to finding time for ourselves. I believe that being in nature, doing things that not only benefit us but emotionally connect us to the world is something we can all have. I think being spiritually well means finding yourself again, finding goals, and hopes and dreams and learning to grab life when you can. This is something that we can focus on, we can meet and talk and process so that you can move forward and begin to heal, feel empowered, feel joy and most of all find the PEACE you deserve.
I believe that we all struggle from time to time. I think that we forget to take care of ourselves. Often when things get hard, we try to take care of everyone else, we try to push through, and we try to make it work. I think that sometimes we forget to feel EMPOWERED we forget to find our PEACE. I utilize a variety of methods primarily Solution Focused Techniques and Cognitive Behavioral Techniques to work with you to move forward and make the changes that will stay, to look at the past as a platform, and find the solutions that will work. I also see all my clients 100 percent Virtual, because I believe that it works better to see you where you are, no drive time, no stressing about coming into the office, just a simple click and we can connect.

Getting Help Is Hard, But The Rewards Can Be Magical
I have several years experience working with a variety of ages. Currently I see individuals for therapy from ages 15+. I have an extensive background working with survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, as well as individuals suffering from Anxiety, Depression, Low Self Esteem, Pregnancy, Women's Issues, Miscarriage, and Life Transitions. I think that EVERYONE can benefit from therapy and that we all essentially want to be overall healthier.
