SkyeHelps Counseling & Wellness

Who we are

SkyeHelps Counseling & Wellness provides online and in-person mental health services to individuals, couples, and families in a safe, compassionate environment. We are a community of therapists who are clinically trained licensed professionals. Our clinicians take a holistic approach to healing, including mind, body, spirit, relationships, and life purpose. We teach and promote emotional education at all developmental stages of life.

At SkyeHelps, we strive to be insightful, caring, and skilled counselors who offer connection and clarity regardless of sexuality, race, religion, or gender. Our goal is the help you experience a connection with yourself, other people, and nature. Most importantly, we also want to facilitate a sense of belonging in the world so you can feel like you are a part of something greater.

From Survival to Stability

Most people choose SkyeHelps Counseling & Wellness because they are just surviving. They realize that they do not have the internal and/or external resources to get them out of their mental and emotional state. Most new patients are struggling to survive day-to-day by avoiding or disengaging from people and life. They are perfectionists and procrastinators, exhausted and overwhelmed. Many use thoughts of suicide as the ultimate escape. Suicide can give people a great sense of control in an uncontrollable world.

That mindset of an uncontrollable world creates a lot of distress. Some of our patients come to SkyeHelps with trauma, anxiety, or depression. Others come to us with dissociation, panic, ADHD, and/or addiction. Some are struggling with OCD, self-harm or suicidal ideation, stress, or bipolar symptoms. And others are experiencing grief, relationship problems, or sexuality or gender identity challenges. Whatever you are experiencing, we are trained to help you.

We are clinically trained to help our patients feel heard with Person-Centered Therapy. Our clinicians help patients connect with their True Self utilizing Internal Family Systems Therapy. We help process trauma and PTSD with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. And we facilitate new ways of understanding using The Tree, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy. We have the skills to move you from survival to thriving.

From Stability to Thriving

Not everyone seeks counseling because things in their life are bad. They are not in survival mode, but they aren’t quite thriving yet either. They’re existing in some stable place. These individuals may be ready to explore a more spiritual aspect of their lives. They may want to challenge themselves in new ways or learn to be more engaged with themselves and others. Some want to learn better communication skills or feel more connected in general, like they belong.

SkyeHelps’ clinicians are equipped to help patients pinpoint areas for improvement and explore their purpose and place in the Universe. We help patients learn healthy communication and listening skills by teaching The Tree. We assist patients in choosing purpose and meaning for their lives from a Humanistic approach. And we help patients set and achieve goals or prepare for big life changes. Taking a holistic approach, we teach people what nutrients and activities your brain needs to feel and think better. We have the skills to move you from existing to fulfillment.

Cultivating a Community of Counseling Specialists

Each of our therapists at SkyeHelps specializes in various patient challenges. We utilize evidenced-based therapeutic tools to help patients work through those challenges to meet their individual goals. We intend to offer a safe place to be, talk, process, learn, unburden, and grow.
