The staff at the Center for Emotional Wellness is continuously finding new ways to meet the needs of our community. From Employee Assistance Program services to Intensive Workshops (and many areas in between,) we want to make the pursuit of counseling convenient and comfortable. Check out some of our unique services below:
Individual and Group Counseling
We offer highly confidential and individualized one-on-one counseling services utilizing various therapeutic modalities including but not limited to EMDR Trauma Therapy, CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and others; we are able to accept cash pay, Medicare, Medicaid, and a large number of insurances.
We also offer support groups and group therapy for a variety of specific topics or areas where the collaborative approach of group therapy might be meaningful for you in your journey.
Tough Enough to Wear Pink Counseling Center
A cancer diagnosis brings so many changes and difficult emotions to our lives and to our families. Our Tough Enough to Wear Pink Counseling Center was created so that breast cancer patients have a safe place to share their emotions and help bring comfort and healing as well as a deep sense of connection.
The Center offers comprehensive services and programs that address coping with the diagnosis of breast cancer, body image, anxiety, spirituality and more. We are here for you and we want you and your loved ones to feel seen, heard and cared for throughout your healing journey.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is considered a best practice in overcoming a variety of conditions including PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress, Panic Attacks, Disturbing Memories, Addiction, Eating Disorders, and many more. Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. developed this approach to trauma recovery and our EMDR therapist has been Shapiro trained and is ready to guide you on the path to healing.
Your therapist will work with you utilizing eye movements or other sensory mechanisms to impact the way that your brain processes information regarding your specific problem.
Today’s culture creates a level of noise, intensity, distraction and demanding schedules that so often take our focus away from our inner selves.
If you are struggling with being present, feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, seeking to enhance your moment to moment awareness or simply want to create space for a mindfulness practice in your life, we can help.
The Daring Way™and Rising Strong™ Groups
Dr. Brené Brown is a researcher, storyteller and best-selling author. She has developed an incredible curriculum to help us work through shame, vulnerability, finding our “arena,” living an authentic life, and living BRAVE.
If you are overcoming disappointment or heartbreak, looking to dive into a new phase of your life, or simply seek inspiration and self-awareness, these groups and workshops are meant for you!
Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)
Any incident or traumatic event (death, divorce, injury/illness, loss of job, car accident, natural disaster, etc.) that causes you to experience unusually strong emotional reactions have the potential to interfere with your ability to function at the time of the event or later.
If you, your place of work, your community, etc. experience a critical event, our CISM Team may be able to provide emergency stabilization services to promote the potential for overcoming this experience in a healthy manner.
Trauma Therapy for First Responders and Veterans
The Center for Emotional Wellness provides for and partners with first responders and veterans.
This program is brought you by Wise Health System and our community partner Twisted X. Services are available at no charge to first responders and veterans in our community.
We provide confidential and accessible trauma therapy, enabling people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from traumatic life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression and panic disorders. Using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), our team of specially trained providers is able to assist in reducing the effects of these traumas, helping the brain process these memories, and allowing normal healing to resume.
We also partner with area law enforcement agencies to ensure fitness for duty and with the community through the Critical Incident Stress Management program (CISM) classes, equipping first responders with education, prevention, stress coping techniques and helps mitigate the effects of stress and negative emotional reactions that interfere with a person’s ability to function due to an event or the repeated exposure to events.
Previous CISM training groups have included: Carrollton Fire and Rescue, Denton County MHMR, Breaking the Chains in Human Trafficking, North Central Texas 911 dispatchers and many other local and regional groups. The CISM team is a voluntary effort for responding to critical events in the hospital, fire, law enforcement and EMS agencies.
Our team includes a Navy Veteran, a Gulf War Veteran with 25 years of service in Fire Suppression and a certified first responder chaplain.
