Who can benefit from psychotherapy counseling?
There are times we encounter problems that are too complex to solve with the people who usually help us, such as family and friends. When this happens, we need the assistance of an experienced psychotherapy counselor.

Anyone who is having difficulty enjoying life or dealing with specific problems can benefit from psychotherapy counseling. Even if you can’t put a formal name on your problem, you may need to talk with someone if you persistently experience:

  • Boredom or fatigue

  • General dissatisfaction

  • Uncertainty

  • Lack of emotions

  • Fear

  • Trouble communicating

  • Panic

  • Relationship problems

  • Feeling of stress

  • Problems with eating/sleeping

  • Depression or anxiety difficulties

Taking the first step
You may have found yourself at a place where you recognize the need for additional support. Or you may have been referred by a professional who recognizes that you or your loved one could benefit from psychotherapy counseling. Our staff of professional counselors has many years of experience helping people of all ages cope more effectively, thus enhancing the quality of their lives. We encourage you to contact us, and together we can begin the journey to wellness.

Working with a therapist
Research shows that the strongest factor in the success of treatment is the quality of the relationship between patient and the therapist. At Natural Health Center, patients work with an experienced therapist whose methods and areas of specialization are diverse. We will work with you to ensure that you are comfortable and able to address your area of concern.

How long will therapy continue?
At Natural Health Center, we offer both short and long-term care to patients, depending on the complexity of the problem. Because each person is an individual with a unique situation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that allows adequate time for each patient to fully resolve their problems. Treatment usually ends when the therapist and patient agree that treatment goals have been achieved.
