Counseling Q & A: What can I expect from counseling?

Most persons seek counseling because they want something to change in their lives. They may want to feel less depressed or anxious, learn how to handle problems differently, and/or improve their relationships. Counseling should give you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings and help you facilitate the changes you want in your life.

How do I know if I need counseling?

Not everyone “needs” counseling, but nearly everyone can benefit from it. The more your problems impact your daily life, the more necessary counseling becomes. Besides, like physical health, with mental health the sooner you address problems the more likely you’ll have positive outcomes.
