Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I really need to go to counseling or if I should just power through my issues on my own?
First assess how long you have been struggling with your particular issues and try to gauge how successful you have been handling alone. Counseling is designed to be one tool to help you identify and resolve the challenges you are facing. Counseling sessions are a dedicated hour with a professional focusing on problematic life issues with a goal of resolution. Seeking help from a professional when you are struggling is smart self-care, not weakness.

Fee for service means you pay the full fee for service when services are rendered with cash, Master Card, Visa, Discover or flex spending or prepaid medical cards.
