Colorado Springs Counseling

Welcome to Voyages Counseling. We are a group of licensed professional counselors and therapists based in the Colorado Springs, CO community. We offer couples, individual, family, and adolescent counseling services. By using proven techniques and strategies, we help clients reopen closed doors in relationships and find new opportunities to connect with themselves and others. If you or a loved one is struggling to cope with mental illness, insecurity, anger, or is experiencing conflicts in their relationships, our therapists at Voyages Counseling are here to help. Our therapists will guide and support you through the necessary, though sometimes difficult, task of grappling with the challenges in our lives. Anxiety, depression, grief, family conflict, and other hardships are not chronic conditions. With our help, it is possible for individuals and families to recapture feelings of joy, peace, and gratitude with themselves and their relationships.

We know how important it is to build a connection between you and your therapist. To ensure you find the therapist that is right for you, we offer free, no obligation consultation phone calls.

Coping Mechanisms 

Finding the right therapist for you isn’t always an easy task. In order to get the best possible experience and benefit from your therapy session, it is extremely important for you to feel comfortable opening up and cultivating a relationship built on mutual trust and understanding with your therapist. To ensure you are making the best choice for you, we offer free consultation phone calls. During these calls, you will be able to ask questions, explain what you are experiencing, and familiarize yourself with the therapists’ specialities, background, and philosophies. To learn more about each of our therapists, click their name above for a detailed description of their specialities, preferred treatment styles, and their personal and educational history. 

The lifeblood of any relationship is communication. Communication issues can develop in any type of relationship or circumstance. Sometimes, if we are not taught healthy communication styles when we are young, it can be harder for us to communicate our feelings and thoughts effectively as adults. Whether you are having difficulty miscommunicating or misinterpreting others, our therapists will help you find new strategies to develop your communication skills. 

There could be any number of reasons why you may be having trouble communicating; perhaps, you and your partner come from very different personal experiences or backgrounds that have caused you to develop different communication styles. In sessions with your therapists, we will work to cultivate healthy verbal and nonverbal communication habits to help you better connect with yourself and those around you.

Relationships aren’t for the faint of heart. They take real work. Like a car or a house, it takes regular maintenance to function properly and avoid major breakdowns in the future. Sometimes lags in communication or an unexpected challenge can create conflict and misunderstanding within a relationship. This is where a licensed couples therapist can lend a hand. Our therapist will work alongside you and your partner to identify issues within the relationship, mend any long standing emotional wounds or resentments, do away with unhealthy communication methods, and replace them with sustainable pathways of understanding and communication. Our therapists guide you and your partner through solution-focused and change-oriented relationship treatment strategies so the two of you can connect with one another better than ever. 

Everyone experiences emotions on a daily basis. Whether we recognize them or not, we experience them all in similar ways. By becoming more aware of our emotions, we can learn methods to cope and regulate them. When negative emotions begin to boil over into anger, anxiety, or distress, we can be better prepared to process them in a conductive way, rather than allowing them to control our actions, thoughts, and motivations. Perhaps your emotions have begun to affect your relationships. Oftentimes, strong emotions can create roadblocks in communication. Alongside your therapist, we will do the necessary work to recognize our emotions, label and decentralize them, and then find effective ways to express them. While emotions are a universal experience, it is possible for you to successfully manage them.
