At one time or another, you may experience a difficult period in your life. You may feel overwhelmed by the pressures of school, work, finances or relationships. Sometimes it helps to work through these things with someone other than a friend or family member. Counseling is a process of learning about ourselves & learning new ways of coping with life’s challenges with a trained professional in a safe, private & confidential manner.
