What should I look for in a counselor?

It is important for counselors to hold at least a Master’s degree and a State Clinical Licensure in Social Work, Professional Counseling, or Marriage and Family Therapy. The following qualities are also important factors to consider when selecting a counselor.

    • Professionalism
    • Years of experience
    • Timeliness and consistency with care

It is also important to feel a personal connection to your counselor. However, it is not always necessary for the counselor to be within the same age range, race, or gender in order to build a therapeutic relationship

Testimonials

My daughter was diagnosed with an eating disorder and it was very hard on her and our family. I was in denial for some time. Patricia worked with our family and was amazing! My daughter is taking her challenges with food one day at a time. However overall she has a better outlook about her herself and eats a healthy diet.
