Mental health services for every client’s unique needs at Counseling Associates of West Bloomfield MI

Since so much is at stake related to your well-being (or that of a loved one), selecting a counselor is not to be taken lightly. Counseling Associates applauds you for taking this big step in the first place. Your journey is personal to you (or those individuals actively involved in counseling.)

Are you pursuing counseling on your own? See it as an opportunity for support during a challenging time, and an opportunity to grow and reach goals that otherwise seem insurmountable without a trained and compassionate helping hand. Individual counseling is centered on any number of concerns or issues, such as anger, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, school-related difficulties, or career challenges.

You may enter into a counseling relationship with a spouse or partner. The need for couples counseling is not a sign of weakness or a blemish on your relationship. Professionals understand every couple has ups and downs. Changes beyond your control can place stress on the relationship. Couples counseling resolves conflicts, and establishes realistic expectations and goals. Your willingness to work with a counselor is commendable; you are trying to stop the spiral and restore harmony.

New family members or the loss of family members can prompt the need for family counseling. A professional counselor explores family roles and communication styles to address concerns about parenting, sibling conflict, and other sources of hostility and problems with the family dynamic. Does everyone need to be present? Depending on your family’s specific situation, it may be advised that some family members sit out of a session, as that may be the best way to work toward a broader resolution. Other times it may be recommended that everyone participate.

Group counseling at Counseling Associates is focused on substance abuse issues. There is value in others knowing your struggles. Knowing “we’re all in this together” empowers you to muster the confidence necessary to find and pursue solutions. Groups represent power in numbers to fight the challenges and after-shocks of addiction.

As with other types of professionals, there are many different specialty areas of counseling. Counseling Associates’ clinical staff is well-versed in working with younger children, adolescents, teens, and adults. Specialties include:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anger management

Whatever your motivations, clinic staff will work side-by-side with you to identify goals and solutions for sources of emotional turmoil that can affect the quality of your life, and the lives of those around you. By helping to bolster self-confidence, and communication and coping skills, ultimately you will be able to manage problems in a healthy and effective manner. Until then, know Counseling Associates is in your corner. Call (248) 626-1500. Office staff will match you to an appropriate therapist for your Mental Health Counseling needs in West Bloomfield MI.
