Counseling

When life gets difficult, we can help

Life has many ups and downs and sometimes you may need help to cope with challenges. If you have broken your arm, you would go to a doctor. If your mind hurts, a doctor can help. In both cases, it is always better to get treatment earlier than later so that things do not get worse.

Get the help you need in a convenient, confidential, safe and non-judgmental environment. Your program provides in-person and virtual therapy options through a national network of licensed professionals trained to help with many challenges including stress, anxiety, grief, marital/family relationship concerns, parenting, substance misuse and more. Counseling will help you understand issues, learn coping skills and develop solutions.
