                                   A number of benefits are available for participating in counseling. A counselor can provide support,                                                 problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship                                     troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Counselors can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from counseling depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from counseling include:

  • Developing skills for improving your relationships

  • Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy

  • Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety

How Can Counseling Help Me?

​In addition to general counseling and testing services, we offer a unique specialization in issues commonly experienced by individuals who are adopted and their biological and adoptive families.

Why do people go to counseling and how do I know if it is right for me?

Do I really need counseling? I can usually handle my problems.

People have many different motivations for coming to counseling.  Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well.  Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks.  Counseling can help provide some much needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these times in their lives.  Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life.  In short, people seeking counseling are wanting to make changes in their lives.  

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, counseling is for people who realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking counseling. Counseling provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.  

" I am not what has happened to me. I am what I choose to become."
