Surviving and Thriving After Life's Challenges

Everyone is, at different points in their life, affected by challenges, loss, stress, and pain. Sometimes, just getting through the day can seem difficult, or like a chore.

Sometimes, people respond to life difficulties by developing depression or anxiety issues, anger, or interpersonal conflict. Others may turn to alcohol or drugs to cope.

When struggling with difficult emotions, people do not always make the best choices; rather, we often do whatever we can to feel better in the moment, sometimes with negative consequences for future. With help, however, it can be possible to confront the difficulties and life, choose healthy coping skills, and come away stronger and wiser.

Whatever issue are may be struggling with, there is help available. At Front Range Treatment Center, we are experienced in helping client's confront, survive, and thrive after all of life's most common challenges.

Family and Couples Therapy

At Front Range Treatment Center, we offer both couples and family counseling.

When life is difficult, relationships difficulties are often one of the first issues to arise. Interpersonal problems are a common symptom of many psychological problems, and are a secondary effect of many others.

Family conflict can be the result of deep, inter-generational dynamics that are impossible to perceive from the inside. Conflict can also arise when there is an outside stressor or tragedy. Sometimes, the normal stress of life is enough is enough to spark conflict. The teenage years can be especially difficult, for children and parents.

Romantic conflict can arise for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, external forces place pressure on the relationship and result in strain. Other times, personality, cultural, or religious differences can divide people. Navigating life transitions (such as having children, or children leaving home) can be extremely taxing on a relationship. Of course, couples struggling with difficult issues such as infidelity and discussions of divorce can often benefit from the guidance of a trained couples therapist who can act as a neutral third party.

 

Support for Family Members of Persons with Borderline Personality Disorder

Living with or loving someone who has borderline personality disorder (BPD) can be very difficult. One major symptom of borderline personality disorder is unstable interpersonal relationships. When a loved one suffers from borderline personality disorder, the whole family suffers. Often, persons with BPD may refuse to seek treatment. Other times, they may be in treatment and find progress difficult.

If your loved one suffers from BPD, we may be able to help. We can offer understanding and support, as well as psychoeducation. We can help you learn how to better respond to your loved one, and result in less distress for you. Contact us today to learn how we can help.
