Rumination, excessive worry, social fears, obsessive thoughts, compulsive behaviors, panic attacks, phobias. Each type of anxiety brings its own kind of suffering and symptoms can be debilitating.

Many of us tend to minimize the impact of trauma on our health and wellbeing. Yet, science shows that a single traumatic experience, or chronic trauma like abuse or neglect, can undermine our ability to feel safe in the world and can cause us to withdraw from others or act out. At Prairie Wellness, we’ll help you heal from trauma with science-backed approaches like Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Contact us today to find your your way back to wellness.
Depression is more than just feeling sad or blue about something and we usually can’t “just snap out of it” no matter how hard we try. Fortunately, individual and group therapy can ease the pain and help get you back on track. Contact us today to book an appointment.
Chronic pain not only hurts, it can lead to depression, anxiety, and other conditions that make life more difficult to manage. Recent studies show that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness meditation can be more effective than narcotics to reduce chronic pain. Prairie Wellness offers CBT treatment and a ten-week mindfulness-based program to help you learn how to manage your pain so you can start living your life again. Contact us today to schedule your assessment.
Life can feel out of control or off balance when we’re constantly stressed. We may experience stress-related symptoms like anxiety, anger, depression, high blood pressure, headaches, trouble sleeping, or gastrointestinal problems. Too much stress can put strain on our relationships at home and work, exacerbate chronic pain, and lead to disordered eating or the misuse of drugs or alcohol. Learn to transform your relationship to stress with individual or group therapy or take our next Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction™ class. Contact us today to get started.
Our relationships with others can bring us great joy and deep sorrow. So much suffering comes when we try to hold on too tight, control things, or push people away before they have time to leave us. At Prairie Wellness, you’ll learn how to identify and break destructive relationship patterns and resolve issues with family members, partners, and friends. Dealing with a demanding boss or difficult co-workers? We can help with that, too. Contact us today.
We all need food for nourishment and it can be a beautiful part of celebration and tradition. But sometimes we use food to bury feelings like sadness, anger, shame, stress, or boredom. This can create a pattern of excessive or restrictive eating that carries serious consequences for our health and destroys our peace of mind. Prairie Wellness offers individual therapy for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, emotional eating, and other eating disorders. Contact us today to learn more.
