Is Counseling For You?

Counseling is an option for individuals and couples who may benefit from assistance with exploring personal difficulties that consistently interfere with problem-solving, decision-making, and relating. These difficulties are often a result of:
 
  • unresolved issues from past events;
  • previous hurtful or abusive experiences; 
  • and wounds that have not yet healed or haven't been addressed.
 
A supportive and neutral environment may be just what the doctor ordered to give you a comfortable place to address these issues in an atmosphere free of judgement and bias. Counseling and therapy are often looked upon with mystery and apprehension accompanied by fears of being analyzed, labeled, harshly confronted, shamed, and exposed. These stereotypes of the counseling process may be preventing you from getting the assistance that you can benefit from that could indeed change your life for the better.
 
Counseling can be a rewarding opportunity for you to engage in self-discovery and personal growth. The therapeutic alliance established over time and the guidance offered by a counselor can result in:
 
  • improved self-image;
  • increased confidence;
  • enhanced relationships;
  • and overall better functioning.
 
Sometimes it can help to have a neutral person look into your world of emotions and behaviors and see the things you cannot see yourself. Through counseling, you are presented with a clearer picture of your situation as the counselor helps you to explore other approaches to handling it that may work better for you in the future.
 
So, what do you think? Is counseling for you? Let me know.

For years I've felt black folks did not need counseling and that it was soley a white thing! I was like many people I talk to presently who simply do not believe in it's effectiveness. Unfortunately in 2009 I learned that I was so, so wrong. I thank GOD for counseling and the people like you who chose to make it their career. It took the loss of my son and husband to realize that sometimes in our lives we need someone to talk to. Someone who can be objective, who does not mind listening and can give guidance through difficult times. Those times when no one else understands. Thanks for being the person you are and I pray the windows of heaven are opened to pour out the blessings you so richly deserve.

Janis- You have been supportive so many times throughout the past ten plus years! Counseling/support has helped me move through POF, divorce, adoption, life transitions and new relationships. Thank you from my heart!

Janis-Having met you through Tai Chai classes, I recognized and admired your skills and spiritual level. Like everyone, I have issues and have had counseling support over the years to help me through divorce, job issues and the move back to my home here in DC. I trust and value counseling, don't know how I would have made it this far without it. Congratulations and I wish you so much success.
