    I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?

    Therapy will help you explore and identify your strengths then use them to help solve the problems you are facing. Going to therapy is a sign of strength and not weakness.

    What’s the difference between talking to a therapist or talking to my best friend or family?

    Friends and family are a vital part of our lives and they can support us in many ways. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– he or she will listen to you without judgment, help you listen to yourself, suggest different perspectives, and teach you new skills. Sometimes we need the outside perspective that our friends and family members cannot provide.

    Finally, counseling is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing your business.”

    What about medication?

    Medication can be effective, but it alone cannot solve all issues. Sometimes medication is needed in conjunction with counseling. Working with a therapist, you will explore the current challenges while also building on your strengths so you can accomplish your goals. While our Center does not currently have a contracted psychiatrist already in place, since talk therapy is our main treatment type, if medications are needed, the therapist can help suggest next steps.

    How long will it take?

    Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them. The average is 3-5 sessions although some people have been in therapy for years. The length of time needed depends on a few factors:, your commitment and desire for personal development, and the factors that drove you to seek counseling in the first place. Each client’s journey is different and your therapist help you determine frequency and length. The Counseling Center’s mission is to make mental health accessible so please do not let financial concerns be a barrier.
