Adult Counseling

A ny of life’s challenges, job insecurity, difficult relationships, problems at school, family friction, the loss of a loved one, or even physical illness, can generate feelings of depression, anxiety, fear, or confusion. Our confidence suffers. We ruminate on the past and perpetually worry about the future.

Why Seek Counseling?

Irritability, negative mood, excessive worry, or mood swings, if persisting and bothersome, might be good reasons to talk to a counselor. These can be signs of a mental health problem that is developing or worsening. Left unchecked, these feelings can overwhelm us, and can lead to unproductive or even self-destructive behaviors, causing major disruptions in our mental health and well-being. When our lives are interrupted in this way, regardless of the reason, we can feel like we are traveling down a road with no turns. As our hope falters, our motivation fails, and we can be overrun with anxiety. Speaking to a licensed, trained professional in a confidential environment provides the opportunity to explore your feelings and thoughts in a safe environment.

Sometimes, our friends and family members are the first to notice changes in us that are worrisome. Others who are close to you may see that you’ve been less active, less available socially, or less interested in things that you once enjoyed with others. Isolation can lead to greater distress. Entering a counseling relationship with a trained and licensed professional can remind you that you are not alone, and that there are others who understand and can help with your recovery.
