Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety is the number one mental health issue facing clients. It originates as a fear mechanism, which is a good thing when you are in a life altering situation. However, when clients suffering from anxiety come to counseling, they have trouble turning this emotional mechanism off. You and your counselor will discuss some common anxiety producing situations, the thought patterns that you experience in those situations, and relaxation techniques to use to assist in alleviating some of these anxious feelings and working towards better mental health.

Counseling Children

Seeking counseling for your child is an emotional decision and it is one that is not taken lightly. Children's psychological needs are different than an adults. Given this, Golden Outlook Counseling provides a friendly environment for them to discuss their concerns. The first counseling session will be spent simply getting to know the child, as a strong relationship of trust is needed. Then, using a variety of techniques individual to them, your child will experience an environment that supports and encourages them to be open with and identify their feelings. They will also experience a host of interventions to help them work through any negative emotions.

Conflict Resolution

Conflict is a natural experience we all have in our lives and it can be a good thing. If you are feeling that your conflicts are overwhelming your relationships, counseling may provide a great outlet you. Together, we will talk about the issue at hand, recognize each person’s needs and emotions, and come to a solution together. In the first consultation, we will establish some ground rules that we all agree to and begin the process of getting resolution.

Depression Counseling

There is an estimated 14.8 million people that suffer from depression, so if you think that you may be depressed, you are not alone. Through counseling, many can work past these feelings and work towards a happier life. Also, in counseling we will work together to identify the patterns of depression, how to work through depressive episodes through therapy, and work at pinpointing triggers of depression for you, helping you to notice the signs in the future and work toward prevention.

Divorce Counseling

Separating from your partner is an incredibly emotional experience. You will feel a myriad of emotions, including anger, abandonment, betrayal, sadness, and anxiety. These emotions may be very intense and counseling can help you to work through them. In therapy, you can expect a warm and secure environment to work through these intense feelings.

End of Life/Terminally Ill Counseling

Possibly the hardest decision you will make is coming to counseling knowing that your time is limited. Knowing that your death is imminent is an intense realization and many go through a period of high emotion. This is where counseling comes into play. Together, we will talk about the hard decisions ahead, how you will make them, and what you want in the time you have before you. The nature of this form of counseling is very intense and at Golden Outlook Counseling, you will find a supportive and open environment to talk about everything that this situation means to you and all of your concerns.

LGBTQ Counseling

Identifying as a member of the LGBTQ community can sometimes be a very long journey with a lot of passionate emotions felt along the way. Every situation is unique to each individual and in counseling, we celebrate these differences. Counseling offers an outlet to express these self associations. Together, we will explore what this really means to you and your identity.

Men's Issues

This is a category that encompasses anything that leads men to therapy, for example, fatherhood, stress at your job, romantic relationships, or societal pressures. These issues are not exclusive issues that lead only men to counseling, but they are issues that when presented by men, there are different implications. Knowing this, when entering a therapeutic relationship, special care is taken to make men feel comfortable in the counseling office and establish a safe environment to express their emotions without reservation.
