IS COUNSELING RIGHT FOR ME?
Congratulations for taking what many find to be a tough first step, looking further into counseling services. We believe that counseling is for everyone. Each person may get something completely different when they walk through our doors. Maybe you are looking to manage stress, deal with some difficult emotions, overcome struggles, or just add some coping skills to your tool box- whatever the case is, everyone can benefit from counseling at some point in their lives.
WHAT WILL A COUNSELING SESSION LOOK LIKE?
Sessions may look different for each person. Typically sessions are either 30 minutes or 60 minutes. We are offering both in person and telehealth appointments to help fit the needs of everyone. During your first session, we will complete an assessment to give us a better idea of your needs, we will then start to move forward, working together to work through struggles at the client's pace. The client will always be a part of determining a treatment plan, ensuring they feel heard and comfortable moving forward with their services.
