The Goals of Counseling Works Therapy

There are many reasons to seek out a qualified therapist. Whether you are seeking to explore your feelings, enhance your coping skills, improve your relationships, establish personal goals, or even deal with a traumatic or negative past experience, the ultimate goal of counseling is to better yourself and enrich the quality of your life. The therapists at Counseling Works are ready to assist you with the knowledge and skills needed to improve your life.

Who Should Consider Individual Therapy?

You may think that counseling is just for people who are “broken,” crazy, or who have a specific diagnosis like depression that they want to address. First of all, we don’t think you’re broken or crazy – no matter what. Everyone struggles at different times, and it’s okay to ask for help to work through difficulties. You don’t need a specific diagnosis to come to Counseling Works for therapy sessions. If you want to feel more fulfilled, engage in self-improvement, or experience improved relationships, therapy can be beneficial for you. Some of the reasons you may want to consider counseling include:

  • Life transitions – change is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. If you’re struggling with a big life transition, therapy can help you feel more confident and hopeful during your change journey.
  • Disordered mood – this can be common in disordered moods like depression and anxiety and other big feelings. We can help you take back power over big emotions that are overwhelming you, making daily life difficult, or negatively impacting your relationships.
  • Difficulty managing anger or stress – do you feel really out of control and you can’t figure out why? You may be dealing with poor mood regulation, which may be addressed with counseling for stress and anger management.
  • Family turmoil – a healthy, thriving family unit can be a great resource for support and strength in your life. A struggling family can make every other aspect of your life seem a little harder. We can help you improve your familial bonds through better communication, increased empathy, and self-advocacy.
  • Difficulty maintaining relationships – do you always seem to be in relationships that are tumultuous, passionate, and end quickly? We can help you understand why this may be happening and seek relationships that are more fulfilling and can stand the test of time.
  • Grief and loss – loss of a loved one, end of a relationship, and other losses can leave you struggling with grief over all that lost potential and missing what you had. Your grief and your memories are valuable and should be honored, but you should also give yourself permission to start planning and moving toward your future.
  • Eating and nutrition issues – some people have a love/hate relationship with food, struggle to eat healthy and nutrient-rich diets, obsess over their weight or caloric intake, or exercise excessively. We can help you create a healthier relationship with the foods you eat.
