Counseling Q & A

When should I seek counseling?

Any time psychological distress interferes with your daily life or you’re overwhelmed by a person or situation, you may choose to pursue counseling. Your therapist can provide the support and resources you need to manage your stressors.

Some common reasons men and women seek counseling include:

  • Feeling hopeless or unmotivated
  • Big life changes such as death, divorce, or career changes
  • Relationship troubles
  • Struggles with addiction
  • Feelings of anger or rage
  • Disproportionate or unidentifiable worry
  • Experience with trauma or abuse

Even people who don’t have mental health struggles can benefit from counseling. The choice to improve your life is an empowering decision.

What happens during counseling sessions?

During a counseling session, you and your provider talk about what’s bothering you and what strategies you can use to address it. Your mental health provider asks important questions and may screen you for anxiety, depression, or behavioral concerns.

If your doctor suspects an undiagnosed condition, they may refer you to their onsite Acuity Brain Center for a BrainPhysical screening. This extensive evaluation identifies the underlying cause of your condition so your doctor can customize treatment specifically for that.

Forms of therapy, such as behavior modification therapy, cognitive therapy, and operant conditioning may be incorporated into your counseling session to help you replace unproductive behaviors with beneficial ones. You may learn about positive coping methods, self-care measures, and behavior modification techniques to improve your physical and emotional state.

Your counselor always approaches your situation with compassion and respect. MaxHealth Family, Internal & Sports Medicine is a safe place to find the help you need.
