I Did!  Growing Intimacy For a Lifetime Together


I often hear individuals talk about intimacy and the desire for more intimacy in their relationship.  However, intimacy can mean many different things to different people. The "I Did!" curriculum was developed by Jay and Laura Laffoon.  Jay and Laura Laffoon are Christian Speakers and Authors.  I recently had the opportunity to attend their one-day marriage conference "Becoming One" at the Legrand Center here in Shelby.  They were a terrific couple, wonderful presenters, and their message was a good reminder of some of the simpler yet often forgotten things that we need to do to remain happy in our marriages.  I'm looking forward to sharing the "I Did!" curriculum with you!

Seeking Safety:  for individuals with PTSD, childhood trauma, anxiety, and/or substance abuse

Group will meet every Thursday 6-730. You must call 704-284-0554 or email info@shelbytherapy.com to register.

Seeking Safety is an evidence-based, present-focused counseling model to help people attain safety from trauma and/or substance abuse. It directly addresses both trauma and addiction, but without requiring clients to delve into the trauma narrative (the detailed account of disturbing trauma memories), thus making it relevant to a very broad range of clients and easy to implement.

The key principles of Seeking Safety
1) Safety as the overarching goal (helping clients attain safety in their relationships, thinking, behavior, and emotions). 
2) Integrated treatment (working on both trauma and substance abuse at the same time)
3) A focus on ideals to counteract the loss of ideals in both trauma and substance abuse
4) Four content areas: cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, case management
5) Attention to clinician processes (clinicians' emotional responses, self-care, etc/)
