What is Counseling?
Have you ever felt frustrated, confused, alone, angry, anxious, depressed, or bewildered about something in your life or with your family or a friend? Do you ever feel that if things are not resolved, life will explode or fall apart? Has life become so full that you need help to just sort out who you are?

When you need help identifying a problem - or when you are ready to change an existing problem an objective advisor can both ease and speed the process. Counseling is bringing these problems to an experienced person, who, in a confidential setting, will come along side of you to help you solve the problem, patterns, or pressures and learn healthy new ways to deal with them.
