At A Better Tomorrow, we believe that our thoughts, feelings and even our day-to-day behaviors, have an impact on our emotional and mental well-being. Everyone has messages that playback repeatedly in our minds. These messages can be empowering and useful to us. Beliefs like, “I can do anything I set my mind to,” or “this too shall pass” can be helpful to encourage us to try new things or to not get stuck in tough life moments.
However, sometimes these messages are critical, shame-based and unhelpful. These messages become beliefs that develop into parts of ourselves that can start to become our internal reality. Many of the messages and things we tell ourselves are established early in our lives. It isn’t until we are older or hitting a challenging life juncture where we realize how destructive and hurtful these aspects are in our mind. Thoughts like “I’m no good” or “I don’t deserve to be loved” or “I’m not enough” can start to dictate a person’s life. When an individual believes these thoughts to be true, they can start to make choices that are not in-line with who they actually are or want to be in life. They take-up coping skills that dull or numb them from these thoughts. They push people away or continue to get into abusive relationship cycles. These thoughts can be isolating and life altering and in the end, hold people back from living a more dynamic, fulfilling and satisfying life.
Our practitioners utilize research-based therapeutic interventions including Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and trauma and shame-informed therapy. Our practitioners strive for a collaborative and personalized approach to your treatment. Our team is here to help you explore the aspects of life that are holding you back and moving towards a more balanced and emotionally satisfying life.
