About Adult Counseling
Adult life is stressful and complicated. Finances, relationships, work, parenting, and a whole host of other factors merge to create a perfect storm of challenging emotions that can impact your mental wellness.
U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher once stated, "There is no health without mental health." Your mental health can affect how you perceive and experience events or situations in your life. Those events may include, but are not limited to the following:
- Relationship problems
- Parenting Difficulties
- Stress Management
- Self-Esteem Development
- Anger Management
- Life Transitions
- Work-Life Balance
- any other issue contributing to daily struggles
A counselor can provide an objective perspective based on their education and experience with clients going through similar struggles. This objective perspective affords you the opportunity to look at your situation from a different and possibly healthier point of view.
Counselors provide a nonjudgmental environment that cultivates self-exploration and growth. Participating in individual counseling helps clients learn new coping skills as well as gain a better understanding of themselves and the world around them.
Are you in need of a listening ear?
A counselor will not only listen and empathize with you, they will also help you identify problems that need to be addressed and offer feedback to help facilitate your insight, guiding you as you come up with real, attainable solutions that could make a significant difference in your life.
Past trauma can greatly influence your mental health and your ability to cope with life’s stressors. Working with a counselor could help you learn to face the emotions surrounding the traumatic event or situation as well as shed light on how the past trauma may be affecting your current struggles. This knowledge and guidance can give you a clearer perspective of the issue and help you realize your power to work through the trauma and live a healthier, happier life.
Your internal dialogue highly influences the struggles you experience in life. Counselors can help you create awareness of your thoughts, which in turn, gives you the ability to alter them. This takes time and work, but with the assistance of a counselor, you can learn new ways to change your negative thought patterns into something more positive or neutral.
Creating awareness is key. With this awareness, change is possible. If you are ready to start your journey to awareness, to change, and to a healthier, happier you, give us a call. We are here to help!
