Counseling is not an exact science; it is not like a visit to a medical doctor, but rather requires your active participation in identifying difficulties and then working through them, with your counselor, to achieve goals.
You and your therapist will explore the appropriate length and frequency of sessions so that counseling is of optimum benefit to you. Clients often begin counseling with one idea of what should be accomplished in therapy. However, people often discover that regular consultation with an experienced counselor is helpful enough to continue as additional concerns are uncovered; or, they continue for further personal development.
Groups provide a powerful way for people to overcome challenges and achieve personal growth while at the same time learning to improve interpersonal relationships. Groups consist of a small number of people who meet together under the guidance of a therapist. The groups may meet for a short time or they might be ongoing. They may be geared toward a specific topic or they might be formed around a broader set of goals. Groups work! Research has shown that groups can help with a variety of issues.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a simple but efficient therapy using bilateral stimulation (BLS) – tapping, auditory tones or eye movements – to accelerate the brains capacity to process and heal a troubling memory. BLS, which occurs naturally during dream state, causes the two brain parts to work together to reintegrate the memory. EMDR methodology is a form of adaptive information processing which may well help the brain unblock maladaptive material.
