Frequently Asked Questions About Counseling

Is therapy right for me?

There are many reasons why people come to counseling. Sometimes it is to deal with substance abuse issues, anger problems, or problems with anxiety or depression. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one’s life such as a divorce or work transition. My style of being up front with some straight talk helps folks with these issues.

Counseling is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their life by working towards change in their lives to feel happier and healthier.

Do I really need counseling/therapy?

People often say, “€œI can usually handle my problems.”€

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. By seeking counseling, you are recognizing it is time for change and making a commitment to move forward with your life in a positive direction.
