    Life can bring many difficult changes and transitions. Maybe you are struggling with past trauma that you haven’t had the chance to process. You just keep pushing yourself to power through. Or, perhaps, you’re experiencing relationship issues or feeling overwhelmed with parenting stress. You’re trying to juggle work stress and handle the day-to-day of life, but it feels like too much.

    Perhaps, you’ve experienced coming out to your family only to have it not go as you had hoped. This has left you feeling isolated and like you don’t have anyone to turn to. Maybe you have felt the trauma of religious intolerance and racism. You still feel the heavy weight of its effects. Your current or past experiences have left you feeling overwhelmed, low in self-esteem, unable to focus and concentrate, or constantly angry. Whether these experiences are from trauma, relationship struggles, parenting stress, work stress, school struggles, or any other life challenges, our team at Unity Counseling in Alpena, MI, is here to help.

    Image of blocks with words "Manage Stress Before It Manages You" If you looking for a therapist in Alpena, reach out to a caring and compassionate team now! Our therapists at Unity Counseling see individuals for many reasons but primarily work with trauma. Many of our clinicians have specialized training in EMDR, Brainspotting, and TF-CBT. Since we work with individuals of all ages and backgrounds, we use a variety of therapeutic modalities to ensure each individual is getting the best treatment possible. We also understand that you may be leaving the session feeling overwhelmed. Our office location is near Bay View Park, which is known for its views of Lake Huron and its calming atmosphere. So clients can take a walk after their session or just sit and relax for some time.

    Our approaches are evidence-based and are tailored to fit the individual needs of each person. This is why we offer individual, group, and family therapy to best meet the needs of our clients. In therapy, you will be processing painful memories and experiences and talking about difficult topics.
