ADDICTION, RECOVERY, AND LIFE REINTEGRATION SUPPORT When life becomes stressful, we have the tendency to numb with alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping, social media, etc. When we numb negative emotions, we also numb the potential for positive emotions such as joy, inspiration, happiness, love, and passion. Within the cycle of addiction, it can be very difficult to access the clarity necessary to find the way out.
Being in addiction treatment you have the opportunity to get clean and sober and begin to gain insights about yourself and the root of your addiction. Continuing this work can be critically important to maintaining lasting recovery and living a happy life. After addiction treatment it can also be difficult to reintegrate back into a successful balanced life on your own.
We specialize in the treatment of addiction with evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness. We offer tools to regain balance and enhance the ability to cope with ups and downs of life as well as vocational training, social support, financial planning, and many other Life Skills Workshops to succeed on your path.
VOCATIONAL TRAINING Find clarity about your purpose and build a sustaining life that you can feel proud of and inspire others. We offer specialized vocational assessments as well as vocational support such as interview skills, employment materials preparation, professional etiquette, financial planning, and more. Take a look at our Life Skills Workshops to see what we offer. Call us today to learn more about our services or set an appointment for a vocational assessment.
SPIRITUAL AWAKENINGS Spiritual Awakenings can be gradual or sudden and often involve a significant change in perception. Individuals everywhere are beginning to awaken. For many, the world has become a confusing and chaotic place. People are questioning themselves, the world we live within, and the nature of reality. There are multiple levels and speeds of awakening and it can often involve a certain amount of grief, isolation, confusion, and turmoil. In addition, the current religious, spiritual, and self-help communities are not adequately addressing the experiences and symptoms that people are struggling with.
Ultimately, a Spiritual Awakening is the realization that we are spiritual beings with the ability to enact creative influence over our experience, and that our life is directly affected by the cosmos, each other, and what we choose to focus our consciousness upon. There is absolutely no topic that is not open for confidential discussion and exploration. If you have tried traditional counseling, different spiritual practices, read self-help books, and are still discouraged trying to find balance and peace, we can help!
SUPPORT FOR LBGT OR QUESTIONING INDIVIDUALS Questioning your sexuality or gender identity can be a confusing or challenging time. It can also be difficult to talk to friends and family about how you are feeling and what you are going through. We specialize in supporting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and Questioning community. Please reach out to us today to learn more about how we can help you find clarity, be true to yourself, and live a meaningful and fulfilling life.
GRIEF AND LOSS COUNSELING The loss of a loved one can be a difficult and challenging time. Grief can also be experienced as the result of the loss of a job, a relocation, the ending of a relationship, loss of a pet or home, and more. Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out how to continue forward in life after such significant changes. We specialize in grief and loss counseling to help you process the changes find peace.
SPECIALTY SENIOR SUPPORT Stepping Stones Life Transition Support specializes in serving the senior community of San Diego. Our goal is to help seniors to find passion, purpose, and peace in their lives. We focus upon life skills, self-awareness and life reflection, and exercises that enhance coping and self-confidence. As clinicians trained in mind-body wellness, we assist individuals to adjust to potential life changes, medical challenges, or living circumstances. ILLNESS AND INJURY ADJUSTMENT AND RECOVERY Injury and illness can sometimes be seen as a message or an opportunity to reexamine your life. It is an opportunity to go inward to find inner strength and resilience that you did not know existed. With years of training in the field of Integrative Medicine and with college and professional athletes, we provide support, coaching, and coping tools to endure the experience of living with an injury or challenging illness.
ATHLETIC TRANSITION SUPPORT, MOTIVATION & PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT Mental preparation is what separates the average athlete/performer from the best. Whether you're coming back from an injury or looking to take your game to the next level, we specialize in working with competitive, high school, college, and professional athletes/performers or teams who would benefit from skills such as coping and adjusting to transitions to different levels of athletics, motivation techniques, focus cues, overall performance enhancement, group dynamics, communication, team cohesion and stress management.
MARRIAGE, DIVORCE, FAMILY, & RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING Relationships can be challenging but provide an opportunity to learn about ourselves and each other. We provide individual and group support for the development and maintenance of healthy relationships as well as marital, divorce, and couples counseling.
