Oregon-Individual-Counseling-ServicesSometimes life throws you a curve-ball that can become hard to manage alone. Experiencing a traumatic event or finding yourself suffering from uncontrollable emotions, mental illness, or addiction, can have a significant impact on your life and leave you wondering how to cope.

Many who need it are afraid to ask for help, fearing that they will not be understood or taken seriously. However, our Oregon, IL individual counseling services at the Braden Counseling Center will reassure you that when you come to us for help, it will be given in a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable environment. We will make sure that your journey to recovery is taken at your own pace while receiving all the support and resources you need.

Depression and Mental Health Counseling

Many people do not treat their mental health with the same importance as their physical health. Often, it is dismissed, or they are simply told to “cheer up a bit.”

Oregon mental health counseling services take each client seriously, and we understand that mental illness runs far deeper than just “not feeling happy.” Our aim through effective counseling is to equip each individual with skills to help them overcome or manage their illness

Depression can take many forms and affect everyone differently, so there is no “one size fits all” solution. Our Oregon counseling for depression services works to evaluate clients on a case by case basis to determine the best course of action. Whether that is counseling, cognitive behavior therapy, medication, or a combination of treatments. You can be assured that we will put in place a tailor-made program that is suitable for your circumstances.

Bipolar disorder is a form of depression (sometimes known as manic depression) that causes extreme highs and lows. It is a lifelong condition, and therefore, learning to manage the disorder can be difficult. Our bipolar disorder treatment helps clients who have been diagnosed with this illness to cope with it effectively.

Domestic Violence Counseling in Oregon, IL

No one likes or wants to be an abuser, but some people have had events occur throughout their lives that cause them to react abusively or violently towards a loved one.

Our Oregon domestic violence counseling is designed to get the root of why the abuser abuses. The counseling is run via group sessions, where participants learn to recognize their triggers, gain non-violent, effective communication skills to resolve conflict and unlearn abusive patterns.

We can also provide a safe retreat for victims of abuse and provide counseling to help them overcome their trauma and fear.

Oregon Substance Abuse Counseling Service

Some individuals turn to substance abuse as a coping mechanism for traumatic or painful life events. Whether it is drugs or alcohol, the user can quickly become dependent, and no longer feel in control of themselves.

Oregon substance abuse counselors run outpatient SMART group sessions, a four-point recovery program which focuses on:

  • Building and Maintaining Motivation
  • Coping with Urges
  • Managing thoughts, feelings and Behaviors
  • Living a Balanced Life

This support aids the individual in maintaining sobriety and rebuilding their lives with a significant focus on relapse prevention.

Driver’s License Reinstatement

Sometimes we make mistakes, and having your driver’s license revoked or suspended due to a DUI is likely a mistake that would preferably be avoided. Being arrested for a DUI can have serious implications.

Our Oregon DUI counseling can help clients deal with their DUI and the consequences. We offer DUI evaluations in order to have your case closed, and if your license is revoked, our alcohol license reinstatement service can assist you in getting all the necessary forms together for your hearing. Getting your license reinstated can be a complicated process, we are here to help you through it.

Trauma Therapy in Oregon

Suffering from trauma can give way to a whole host of symptoms, both healthy and unhealthy. While some can be mild, many of them are often debilitating and have a profound effect on a person’s life.

If you’ve suffered from trauma, it is important to seek help as soon as possible before symptoms start to manifest or get worse.

Oregon trauma informed counseling and therapy is a specialized service run by qualified staff. This counseling introduces a human element of making sure the client is heard, understood, and not judged. By empathizing and being respectful, the counselor will learn and understand the story of what happened to you, in a safe and therapeutic environment.

Trauma is profoundly complex and so is trying to process it. Trauma-Focused Therapy builds a rapport between the counselor and client and enables the client to learn new skills for overcoming their traumatic experience

This Trauma treatment works by finding the best methods for the client to heal in their own way.

Oregon EMDR Therapy

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is one of the most effective ways of treating PTSD. The client focuses briefly on their traumatic memory while experiencing bilateral stimulation, which is usually rapid eye movements. This treatment reduces the emotion and vividness of the client’s trauma.

How to Get Started

By contacting us at the Oregon Braden Counseling Center, we can book you for an initial 60-90 minute consultation, which will determine the best course of action and therapy for your individual circumstances.

Our model is strength-based, meaning that we work to build resilience and self-worth. Our clients are taught skills that are vital for individuals dealing with trauma, mental illness or other issues.

We are able to provide a broad range of counseling services for issues such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, dealing with grief, stress, anxiety and more.

Our philosophy is “New Ways for Better Days” so if you feel like your days could be better, then get in touch so we can discuss the skills and tools you need to gain to achieve your goal.

I was an emotional wreck when I first went. I was nervous and probably not making a lot of sense. The staff seemed to understand and immediately put me at ease. By the time I left, life just didn’t seem so bad. Thank you Braden Center for being there.
