Self-Care In The Community

Self-Care from Anywhere

Do you have anxiety, depression, trauma, or identity struggles? This can help with independent learning at your own pace.

Use evidence-based practices that you can use every single day. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy are at the core here so that you can get in touch with what you need most and provide yourself with exactly what you need. The answers come from within and you can find them here, with support.

Connect with Moms Just Like You

Do you have anxiety, depression, trauma, or identity struggles? More moms than ever are identifying with maternal mental illness, such as postpartum depression. Conditions are very treatable, but speed and quality of recovery depends on two elements: quality of care and support from others. With Tides Online Postpartum Group Therapy you can have both. Clinician-led evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing are used routinely, as is the golden standard for depression and anxiety. New members welcome!

Contrary to popular opinion...
You don't have to spend a lot of time and money on self-care.  Try one (or both!) of these mindfulness scripts to get started.

Relaxing with Music
Meditating on Bed

 If you're trying to chase down the feeling of being comfortable in your own skin and get out of your head, practicing mindfulness could be one of the most effective ways to invest your time.

We are working to build a community-led by survivors for survivors. We believe in making a positive and permanent impact in the lives of survivors by ensuring access to sustainable services. We aim to ensure that everyone has the option not to sell their bodies, have the opportunity to become free and stay free from exploitation, have the support to walk through trauma recovery, increase healthy connection with themselves and others, achieve educational and vocational goals, and a seat at the table to use their voice however they choose.

Ridgeville Counseling, LLC

Our team partners with patients to create a multi-faceted program that meets their health goals by successfully managing their current diseases or conditions as well as preventing others from occurring. Each program is tailored to our patient’s needs and goals. Research shows our synergistic holistic approach helps individuals restore and maintain optimal health so they live well longer.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to. I work with my clients to identify and work on the areas in their life they want to change. I support them through the use of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Choice Theory, EMDR, and Person Centered Therapy. I ensure my clients feel safe and respected as they work through various issues in order to make the changes they feel are needed to meet their goals.

The focus of treatment is to help individuals heal, energize, and gain insight while growing. This is achieved by providing a neutral safe space, actively listening, and providing a person-centered approach in treatment. Stacy is trained in multiple treatment modalities; including Eye Movement Desensitization and Re-processing (EMDR) which can specifically target people who have a trauma history.

Partnering with Tides Supports the Community and Your Organization



How Community Partnerships Began:

Life transitions, depression, anxiety, trauma responses, and general stress are at an all-time high in our communities. It's on the news. It's in social media. And we all know that it's definitely showing up at home.

No one would argue that the demands of life are higher than resources available in this season of our community. For some, finding the right fit for their unique situation is almost instantly overwhelming. All they know is that something is missing and they need help to "get better." However, if the main complaint is anxiety or depression, the source of the issue can be difficult to specify in the throes of the struggle.

Some ask, "Do I need a doctor?", "Do I need a nutritionist?", "Do I need mental health therapy?" If a person, couple, or family, does not have an advocate, the process of "getting better" can feel nearly impossible.

This is where the need for community organizations come together in supporting a higher quality of life for across social/emotional, physical, and education domains.

This is the root of Tides Therapy Community Outreach Partnerships: Mind and Body United. Helping the members of our community link up with the right resource for them is the highest level of service that each community partner prides themselves on providing.
