By talking with a licensed professional counselor, social worker or therapist, individuals are offered a safe and confidential environment to discuss emotional difficulties, life challenges, relational conflicts, or mental health concerns. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, 1 out of every 5 adults in America live with a mental health conditional; however, only 40% of these individuals seek help. It can often be difficult or stigmatizing to seek out counseling services; however there many benefits of pursing services if help or change is desired.
The American Psychological Association suggests therapy to individuals who feel that there is something internal that is causes distress and interference with an aspect of life, such as:
If you feel overwhelmed, fatigued, anxious, angry, or hopeless, we encourage that you reach out to learn more about services. If you have tried counseling in the past and it didn't help right away, we encourage that time can often help build rapport between clients and therapists. Within the initial appointment, we will investigate symptoms, previous diagnosis reports, treatment experiences, and options or preferences for counselors. If after a few sessions, you feel that you are not "connecting" with the therapist, we are happy to reassign the case and pair you with someone you feel more fitting. We are able to offering morning, afternoon, evening, and weekend sessions as needed and, if you are uncertain about committing to the services, we are happy to investigate short-term options as well.
