A licensed counselor will listen to what challenges you are facing and then provide guidance on how you can work through them. Some issues that people might seek out a counselor for include, but are not limited to, anxiety, anger, grief, depression, trauma and more. Individual counseling also can help with becoming a better communicator, improving concentration, boosting self-esteem and self-compassion, and resolving family issues.
Under the supervision of a licensed counselor, group therapy allows people with similar challenges to get together in a safe space to talk through their thoughts and feelings. Groups can act as a support system, an accountability partner, and a sounding board for members who are working through a problem.
In some cases, medication is needed as part of a mental health plan. The client and therapist will work together to determine whether or not medication is the right choice. A psychiatrist will prescribe and then follow up with the client over time to assure the medication is beneficial.
