What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
As a mental health professional, we have specialized training in helping people achieve mental wellness in a safe, confidential, and structured way. We will teach you new skills, provide unbiased support, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you find real and application tools, techniques, and solutions. Having a friend or family member in your support team is important. However, processing painful emotions, deep beliefs, and vulnerable experiences may not feel comfortable, appropriate, or safe with those in your support team. As a mental health counselors, our job is to support you as you explore all aspects of your mental wellness.
What about medications?
We offer medication management, medication consultation, and full psychological evaluations at Mindful Counseling to help you find the best treatment plan for you. Medication can be effective and is sometimes needed in conjunction with therapy. We honor and respect each individual clients process and many people benefit and reach their goals with therapy alone. Many people also greatly benefit from medication. Depending on your history, presenting symptoms, and goals, your counselor and doctor will work together with you to support your total mental health.
How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?
In our first session we will build a relationship, get clear on your main concerns, and create a plan with goals to achieve the outcomes you want. We will tailor therapy to your specific needs. We take an eclectic approach in counseling including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness based strategies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Person-Centered techniques. You will receive paperwork ahead of your appointment and your counselor will be familiar with the information you provide.
How long will it take?
Everyone’s circumstances are unique and the length of time differs based on the individual. You and your counselor will discuss the frequency and timing of therapy to best fit your needs. Generally, we will begin with regular visits to build momentum and regularly evaluate progress on our treatment goals.
My partner and I think we may benefit from counseling. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?
If you would like to work together in counseling to address relationship dynamics, we provide couple’s counseling. Regardless of your age, stage, relationship status, or current conflict level, we believe couples work is powerful and an important service for all partnerships. From communication skills, conflict resolution, boundaries, betrayal, premarital counseling, to simply wanting a mental health date, couples counseling is a fit. We recommend couples work with a therapist together, while also seeing separate individual counselors. We do not recommend the couples therapist be either partners individual counselor, in order to remain unbiased and supportive of the couple as the client.
I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Aren’t people who go to therapy weak?
