Counseling may be helpful for you if you are feeling anxious, unhappy, or unfulfilled. You may have tried to cope with your problems on your own but you find it difficult. Counseling can help you develop the skills and strategies needed to make your life and/or relationship work.
Counselors do not make judgments about the rights or wrongs of a situation. They listen, encourage you to talk openly and honestly about your concerns, and help you reach your own decisions about the best way forward. Counselors help uncover underlying issues and address them.
Counseling has one definite and clear purpose: to provide an opportunity for clients to work towards living in a way he or she experiences as more productive and satisfying.
Our counselors view each session as an opportunity for growth and exploration, helping each individual person to view themselves through the eyes of a compassionate stranger.
Our counselors view their work not as listening to problems but as listening for solutions and self defeating thoughts and behaviors. Through understanding, empathy, decision-making, and goal setting, dramatic personal change can lead to a greater sense of hope and happiness for both the client as an individual and, subsequently, those in the client's life.
