BENEFITS OF COUNSELING
Individual counseling helps you gain insight into the cause of your problems and seek positive alternatives.
Couples counseling provides an arena where two people can learn to communicate individual needs and negotiate a healthy partnership.
Family counseling helps family members gain an understanding of disruptive problems. Improved communication skills provide new ways to reach solutions that lead to greater family harmony.
Groups led by a therapist provide you with an opportunity to openly discuss your problems in a supportive environment. The group setting enables you to learn from the experience of others and breaks the isolation of dealing with your issues alone.
