Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy
Each of us go through times of anxiety, sadness, grief and loss, stress, and life transitions. Sometimes it can be managed by oneself. Other times, talking with friends or family members can help. However, there are times in which approaching family and friends about these concerns is not an option. Going through these concerns by yourself or with certain others seems almost impossible, and a sense of being overwhelmed and feeling alone increases.
During these times, meeting with a therapist individually, as a couple, or family can help. Counseling provides a space to discuss the concerns pressing on life. Counseling can give insights and new perspectives into concerns, as well as build abilities and skills to improve ways to manage and cope.
These concerns can be traumatizing and impact life in small and/or big ways. The latest research and understanding of healing from trauma points to somatic processing with the body expressing its experience of trauma. The stressors will continue to present itself through body experiences until the trauma is addressed.

These points help to detoxify the body, promote relaxation, reduce cravings, and increase confidence. The five point protocol is administered by professionals trained in the NADA protocol. NCWC has used this protocol to promote abstinence and harm reduction, and general well-being for over 20 years. Dr. Harvey is an advocate and trainer of the NADA five point protocol.
The duration is usually a 30- 45-minute session and based on symptoms that are present. This can vary from daily to 2x daily and 3x weekly to once per week.
