  • What is Counseling?
    • ​Counseling is a form of 'talk therapy'. It is a process where an individual, couple or family meet with a trained professional counsellor to talk about issues and problems that they are facing in their lives.
  • How does counseling (or therapy) sessions work?
    • It is a collaborative effort between you and the counselor, providing opportunities to get to know one another to talk about the issues brought up. We tailor therapy to your specific needs.
  • Who is eligible?
    • According to the National Institute of Mental Health, people seek out therapy for major life stressors (like a tough job, the loss of a loved one, or relationship issues) or symptoms that can't be explained by some other condition (like low energy, irritability, or changes in sleep or appetite).Contact our Counseling Department to determine if counseling is for you.

    • ​A referral isn't usually required to see a therapist, but a referral from a medical doctor may be necessary if you want your insurance provider to cover the visit.

    • Medical history, including your current medications
    • A questionnaire about your symptoms
    • Record release form
