Focus:

It is my belief that there are a number of benefits to participating in outpatient counseling. Counselors can provide needed support, assist with problem-solving skills, communication improvements, unresolved issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and help you have a better understanding of yourself, your goals and your values. Other benefits to working with a counselor may include:

 

- Identifying and changing negative thoughts and behaviors

- Improve conflict management skills

- Improving self-confidence and self-esteem

- Developing skills for improving your relationships

- Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety

- Managing anger, grief, depression or other emotional concerns

- Improving communication and listening skills

- Learning to create and accomplish personal goals
