What is counseling?

Counseling is a process in which you work with a professionally trained counselor in becoming a healthier human being in all aspects of life: Emotional, Intellectual, Physical, and Spiritual.
Counseling is:

  • A voluntary activity. Whether you decide to return for more sessions is up to you.
  • A confidential discussion about a situation, problem, relationship, family issue, or habit that you want to change.
  • A positive step you can take when you get stuck in life.
  • An educational and growth oriented experience.
  • An active collaboration with your counselor to find workable solutions to life barriers, not one in which a counselor "fixes" you.
