What is counseling and what can I expect?

Counseling, also known as psychotherapy, as a systemic process guided by a mental health professional that is used to help others live a healthier and happier life. The process includes evidenced based therapies that address thinking errors and promote the use of healthier habits and skills in a supportive and collaborative way.

You can expect to have conversations with your therapist to that cause you to express your thoughts and feelings, to better understand what is driving your behaviors. At The Healing Place, we utilize real-life assignments to practice outside of the session to ensure effectiveness and mastery.

Counseling for Parenting Challenges

Am I a good fit for counseling here?

We treat adults that are dealing with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorder. We also address quality of life issues including communication issues, career dissatisfaction, parenting challenges, relationship stress and life-transitions which could be divorce, grief, aging-related issues.

Counseling is a commitment that should be taken seriously by you the client and your therapist. We want to make the best use of your time and actively participate in sessions in order to see improvements.

We also offer online counseling

We offer online counseling because you may feel more comfortable talking about issues in the privacy of your own home. Also, you may be on the go and still want counseling with your therapist, regardless of your location.

Online therapy saves you commute time as well as time spent sitting in a waiting room, waiting to be seen. You can access your therapist with any smart device through our HIPAA secure platform. The Healing Place will begin offering face to face sessions in Summer of 2020 at our Douglasville, GA location.
