Emotional and Spiritual Wellness

Is Counseling for You?

Counseling provides guidance to help people navigate life’s challenges*. Counseling can be beneficial for everyone. You do not need to be experiencing severe or even moderate symptoms to benefit from counseling. Many insurance companies have Employee Assistant Programs that will pay for three or more counseling sessions. If you are experiencing any of the following, you could benefit from counseling:

  • Feelings that are impacting your daily life functioning
  • Difficulty enjoying activities you used to find enjoyable
  • A change in sleep and/or eating habits
  • Feelings of being overwhelmed or hopeless
