I’m used to handling things on my own. Is help really worth it?
When you are in a place that you are not sure what to do, it can cause you to feel anxiety or depression. Those issues often grow when ignored. Our staff will help you decide what service provider is best suited to handle your case based on our specialties. Together, we can identify your needs and equip you with the tools to navigate the difficult times. It is a process that will continue to assist you throughout your entire life.
What’s the difference between talking to a professional and talking to friends or family?
Talking to a friend or family member is an excellent way to build those relationships. However, when the advice we receive from those closest to us doesn’t help or causes more problems, it is time to call in the pros. A professional will always be separate from the situation so they can think logically without the variables that are brought about by the relationship. They have been trained to disarm the coping mechanisms that have us stuck in the same thought loop and also in how to arm you with the tools you need to take on the issues that have effected you.
Am I going to get medication?
Medication can be an effective way to change the way we feel. Although we do not have any clinicians that prescribe medication, we have great relationships with colleagues in the local area and we are happy to work hand in hand with them should medication be the route for you. Our work here is designed to unpack the problems you are experiencing and expand on your strengths that can help you accomplish your personal goals.
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time for you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek counseling in the first place.
