People often feel that asking for help is scary, especially when it comes to Mental Health. Unfortunately, there has been a stigma placed on the notion of getting help through Counseling, Mental Health, or other Psychiatric services. However, asking for help is a sign of strength as it indicates that all of us are not alone and need some support from others.
Psychotherapy, also known as Personal Counseling, can provide an opportunity for a highly qualified and credentialed professional to reflect and offer guidance in areas that seem overwhelming. Counselors are able to listen and offer support as individuals discover their own answers to life’s questions.
Therapists can be helpful by offering ideas on how individuals can develop healthy ways of coping with problems related to anxiety or depression. Symptoms related to anxiety and depression can be normal responses to stress. Adults and children experience problems which can lead to interruptions in daily routine, work habits, and relationships. Through appropriate counseling and support services, individuals can find ways to cope with these issues and function in a way that is healthy.
For children, we offer developmentally appropriate intervention so that children can express themselves in ways that is nonthreatening.
