Do I Really Need Counseling?
Counseling no longer holds the stigma that it once did. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, a relationship issue, or a life transition, now it is fairly common to seek assistance from a trained, objective professional.
How Can Counseling Help Me?
Counseling can help you in a number of ways. At time you can be so immersed in your situation that it is difficult to make sense of it. Talking through issues with someone who is a trained, knowledgable professional can provide insight and perspective that you did not have before. An objective counselor can help you identify patterns of thinking / behavior that keep you stuck. You can also learn new ways to cope with difficult people or situations in your life. Counseling is designed to enhance your own problem-solving abilities and personal growth.
What is Counseling Like?
If you have never experienced counseling before, you may have some hesitations about the process. Oftentimes, it can feel unsettling to think about discussing private issues with a total stranger. Contrary to popular belief, you will not be asked to lie on a couch and be analyzed as you may have seen on television or in the movies.

Is Therapy Confidential?
Yes! Rest assured that the information that you share in counseling sessions is strictly confidential and will only be disclosed to a necessary third party under particular circumstances.
If a client feels suicidal or homicidal, your counselor is required by law to take steps to ensure your safety as well as the safety of others.
A counselor is under mandatory obligation to report any child abuse, elder abuse, or abuse of handicapped persons in a client's care.
Another situation that may warrant disclosure of information is if your counselor is supoenaed to testify in court.
