We may seek counseling as a last resort, feeling weak and ashamed...
but the strongest thing we can do at times is to admit weakness...the wisest thing can be to disclose confusion...and the bravest thing can be to resolve misguided choices.
It can be incredibly helpful to talk things out. This is especially so in a setting where confidentiality is strictly observed and the process is guided by a professional therapist trained in empathetic listening, family system dynamics and cognitive/behavioral intervention.
Familiarity and conflict can breed contempt in relationships. Respectful communication often becomes a casualty. Counseling can help restore civility and foster a process of healing.
The spiritual dimension certainly deserves our attention and energy, but client-initiated exploration seems to be the most helpful approach in this area. We'll go there if and when you're ready.
Adjunctive services of BWC include drug and alcohol abuse assessment and treatment planning, critical incident stress debriefing, hypnotherapy and instruction in the skills of mindfulness.
Sessions typically last 45 to 50 minutes and can vary in cost. You may owe only your insurance policy's specified office visit copay. Or you may be responsible for an amount ranging up to the full fee of $115.00. This is determined case by case.
It is customary to pay professional fees at the time services are rendered.
Cash, checks and major credit/debit/HSA cards are accepted at Blue Water Counseling, LLC.
While there may be no guarantees in therapy, compare the cost of obtaining it when it is needed with that of failing to do so. Generally, the latter turns out more expensive.
The first session is when therapist and client(s) get to know each other -- and find out if there is a "therapeutic alliance." It's an experiment for both parties. Ready to schedule?
