When Should I Seek Counseling?

From childhood through late adulthood, there are certain times when we may need help addressing problems and issues that cause us emotional distress or make us feel overwhelmed. When you are experiencing these types of difficulties, you may benefit from the assistance of an experienced, trained professional. Professional counselors offer the caring, expert assistance that we often need during these stressful times. A counselor can help you identify your problems and assist you in finding the best ways to cope with the situation by changing behaviors that contribute to the problem or by finding constructive ways to deal with a situation that is beyond your personal control. Professional counselors offer help in addressing many situations that cause emotional stress, including, but not limited to:

•anxiety, depression, and other mental and emotional problems and disorders

•family and relationship issues

•substance abuse and other addictions

•sexual abuse, domestic violence and other trauma

•eating disorders

•career change and job stress

•social and emotional difficulties related to disability and illness

•adopting to life transitions

•the death of a loved one

Ultimately, only you can decide to get the help that may benefit you. From our experience we can tell you that people are usually glad they sought counseling and many wish they had come earlier—before the problems got so big.
