What it is that we do and why counseling is helpful
It is normal for people to seek counseling when they experience changes in life, even positive ones. Whether you are challenged by adapting to a different job, a change in relationship status, the death of a loved one, or another crisis in your family or community, you can benefit by talking about it with a professional. Oftentimes, unresolved complex dilemmas lead to serious problems such as clinical depression or severe anxiety. Negative coping mechanisms such as overeating, alcoholism or drug abuse may further complicate matters. Counseling can help to decrease or eliminate negative thoughts and behaviors as well as restore damaged relationships. To learn about specific therapy session groupings, please click here.
Therapists are objective, non-judgmental professionals who have studied human behavior and relationships. In a safe and supportive environment, your counselor will assess your current situation by asking a series of questions about your past and present life. Based on this information and two brief checklists that you will complete, you will discuss circumstances that can be changed and others that must be accepted. Together with your therapist, you will then develop goals, action plans and strategies to live a less stressful and more fulfilling life. By meeting regularly with your therapist, you will have the guidance and support needed to make the necessary changes in your life. Click here to learn more about WWC staff.
