Approximately 2-4% of genetic testing results in NPE (not expected parent or non-paternity event) results. NPE occurs when one or both parents are not genetically related in the parent/child relationship. Curious Life Counseling will assist to process the surprise, trauma, grief, as well as navigate gently surrounding identity, forgiveness, interpersonal relationships, and recovering from the unexpected news.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and evidence-based treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Therapy can help you overcome these symptoms towards post-traumatic growth; mental health matters and we guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship therapy counseling can be beneficial for those who are looking to strengthen their mental health and emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with families and couples in a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
