Frequently Asked Questions

What types of problems do people come to mental health professionals with?

People may seek mental health services after struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, relationships, PTSD, bereavement, eating and body image issues and substance abuse. Some people have issues related to their normal development such as identity or relationship issues. Some people are not sure what the problem might is but just know they are not functioning or feeling the way they normally do. They might notice having a harder time studying, eating or sleeping too little or too much, or otherwise just not meeting their day-to-day obligations. We can help assess, diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders. Don't put off seeking counseling or therapy. If you are considering it, this is an indication that you probably could benefit from the experience.
