Adult FAQs

How can therapy help me?

Therapy can provide support, problem-solving skills, enhanced coping strategies from a licensed professional for concerns such as anxiety, depression, unresolved childhood trauma/grief, stress management, relationship troubles, body image, self-esteem, etc.

I already have a trustworthy friend who listens and advises me, why would I need to see a counselor?

A licensed professional counselor (LPC) is professional who has acquired years of graduate study and experience in the the field of counseling. Trained and licensed professionals not only listen empathically, but also assist people in becoming more aware and gain insight into their triggers, fears, experiences, expectations and goals by reflecting on their lives in a non-threatening, non-judgemental and genuine manner. Most importantly, a licensed professional is answerable to a licensing board, which expects that all licensed professionals practice with the highest level of professionalism, integrity and ethics.

How long should I anticipate being in therapy?

This is a very difficult question to answer since everyone’s experience, ability to cope, resources, healing is all very unique and personal. During our work together, we will periodically discuss goals and length of counseling.
