Counseling

In the course of almost everyone's life, there comes a time when it becomes difficult to meet all of the demands placed upon one's shoulders.  Activities that once brought happiness now become an almost unbearable burden, or a source of fear or anger.  A traumatic experience, such as being the victim of a crime, or surviving a life-threatening event can result in sleeplessness and other changes in routine that can become debilitating over time.  

Loss; of a loved one, a friend, a job, or a home, can lead to extensive bouts of depression and anger. An injury or illness that places limitations on one's ability to participate fully in favored activities can lead to mood swings that endanger the relationships that are necessary to complete the healing and transition processes.  Even happy events, such as the birth of a child, a new marriage, or retirement, can result in such stress that it changes one's outlook on life, or one's relationships with others.  All of these scenarios are examples of times when assistance may be needed.

Children and youth can often find themselves in difficult situations.  Their access to technology and the outside world is far more wide-ranging than the access their parents and grandparents experienced.  Bombarded with pictures, movies, television shows and magazines that depict young people engaging in adult activities, it can be difficult for a child or adolescent to feel that they belong, or that they have someone with whom they may share their thoughts and feelings.

Over 30% of Americans will seek counseling services at one time or another throughout their lives.  Whether it is to assist with decision-making, to deepen a relationship with a loved one, to help clarify choices when making an important decision, to attempt to reconcile differences, to assist in coping with seperation or loss, or to provide assistance through the grieving process, counseling can be a valuable tool to get one back to a more typical outlook on life.
