Counseling may hold the solutions you seek.
Counseling can bring change and well-being into your life. It applies insights and techniques from human development, coaching, psychology, and psychotherapy.
Counseling takes a positive and practical approach to behavior, relationships, and emotions. It respects your values and identity. It strives to promote well-being at home, among friends, and at work (and to treat pathology if it is present).
In counseling you are not a diagnosis but a whole person with individual values, experiences, insights, personality, skills, ambitions, desires, needs, relationships, stressors, and other life circumstances. The counseling process examines how all of these things interconnect. It helps you take advantage of your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, and learn new techniques for achieving the balance, results, and well-being you want in your life.
Does counseling work? Countless people have found that it does. There have been a number of scientific studies showing that not only is "talk therapy" effective against conditions like depression and anxiety disorders, but its effects can be observed to cause beneficial changes in brain chemistry like those produced by medication.
