Counseling offers an opportunity to work with a trained professional to explore areas of life that may not be working as well as you would like. Through the counseling process you gain insights into yourself and your world. One critical aspect of counseling is recognizing strengths you already possess, nurturing those, and using them as tools for effecting change in your life. A therapist does not provide you with specific answers or solutions but rather grants you a safe haven where you voice your concerns and issues and in the process empowers you to find your own solutions. If you are feeling stuck and are unsure on how to proceed, then counseling is for you.
