Counseling and Sex Therapy
Many people choose to come to a therapist just to have another unbiased person to talk to about general life issues, stress management, relationships, life goals, or whatever happened in their day. Asking for support is a sign of strength and self-care, not a sign of weakness. Counseling gives us the opportunity for growth, to identify the inner strength to make the changes and choices needed to live the life we dream of.
Anxiety affects nearly 1/5th of adults in the United States. Our compassionate and supportive licensed therapists offer a wide range of healing modalities and specialize in working with people who struggle with anxiety. Often times we feel like we are stuck, or helpless when we are feeling anxious, which may block us from utilizing the tools we know that can help. Luckily, we have a range available to us, many of them which are accessible to all, anywhere, anytime. Everything from exercises to help alleviate the physical sensations of anxiety, breathing, visualization, affirmations, acupuncture, massage, reiki, nutrition as well as medication. Sea Change’s therapists and teachers offers a one-stop-shop for all of these essentials.
Most people have felt depressed at some point in their lives, but living with depression can be a very difficult place to live. Especially since many view depression as someone not being able to get out of bed, crying all the time, etc., but it doesn’t always look like that. Often times it manifests as irritability, anger, or addiction. Those living with depression often find themselves in the same cycle as those who struggle with anxiety, in that you know there are things that can help you, but the depression or anxiety has such a hold that it keeps you from doing something differently. Sea Change is a place to help support those working to break those cycles and BE the CHANGE they want to SEA!

What is Comprehensive Sexuality Education?Comprehensive sexuality education programs promote abstinence as the most effective way to prevent teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STI) while also teaching accurate and age-appropriate information on healthy relationships, anatomy, sexual behaviors, gender identity, contraception, and STIs. Providing this information to adolescents allows them to make responsible and healthy decisions.

(2006). Effective sex education. Washington, DC: Advocates for Youth.
What is a Sexuality Health Educator?A sexuality health educator is a professional educator that teaches about all aspects of sexuality including relationships, sexual identity, self-esteem, sexual and reproductive health, abstinence, contraception, and even about pleasure. When working with a Sexuality Educator, youth traditionally receive age-appropriate, factual information that is sex-positive, about everything ranging from puberty to risk reduction. School and community workshops and trainings are provided for youth, parents, and professionals. As for parents we teach about what to say and when to say it and encourage parents to clarify, communicate and model their values. Realistic strategies and helpful tools are taught and practiced that aim to help strengthen communication and deepen the connection between parents and their kids. Many Sexuality Educators also work on curriculum development and program design, assisting organizations or schools to become more comprehensive and culturally sensitive. This also includes training professionals who work with parents and youth to enable them to be their experts.
What is the difference between coaching, counseling, and therapy?"Coaching begins where therapy leaves off. The coach assumes that the client is well-functioning and is facing a roadblock or finding it difficult to get over the next mountain to greater fulfillment. People turn to coaches when their life is going well. Usually, they are high-functioning people who want to expand their lives, their businesses, and their general outlook. They tend to be successful people who have a vision that they could go beyond where they are, but feel that they would like someone to work with them to achieve their goals. These are the same people who would seek a coach to improve their golf or tennis game, seek consultation in their business, or utilize a financial planner to assist with their finances. Coaching focuses on the present and future and tends to be short-term. Counseling addresses specific issues and focuses on how you are managing the people, places and things in your life and in the “here and now.” Counseling helps individuals gain skills in how they interact with others, overcome crisis and manage stress. Marital and family problems, parenting, crisis, loss, difficult people, career challenges, and stress are some of the issues that can be addressed in order to gain insight, strengthen relationships and enhance your ability to cope with everyday happenings. Everyone can use someone to talk to help maintain balance in their life, so counseling can be long or short-term, depending on what your intention is. Therapy, on the other hand, addresses the internal world and how you function and relate to those around you. It is usually something that is needed when the issues you are dealing with interfere with your functioning of daily life. Emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety, phobias, destructive behaviors, fears, compulsions, and addictions are issues needing a more long term in-depth therapy approach. Personality problems that can be treated in therapy include anger issues, paranoia, excessive blaming, possessiveness, jealousy, emotional apathy, relationship abuse, and other destructive behaviors. In addition, traumatic experiences, growing up in unhealthy environments, and abusive experiences all have a profound impact on emotional well-being and are often the focus of therapy. Therapy is focused on the individual, delves into the past and tends to be of longer duration than counseling or coaching.
