2nd Story Counseling
Premarital counseling through the Gate 14 program was excellent. Trying to find good marriage Counselors can be a challenge but these folks know what they are doing. We went 4 months before our wedding and really learned a lot about each other. If you are thinking of getting married, you should really think about pre-marriage counseling. It helps to head off problems before they start.

2nd Story Counseling
I went here a few years ago for anxiety issues related to my job and some basic career counseling. My counselor was really helpful with giving me a few strategies to reduce stress. One big thing I learned was how to be ok with saying no to new projects and how to stop people pleasing. It took me a good 6 months of therapy but it was well worth the money and time.

Went in today. From the minute we walked in until we were done it was a pleasant experience.The girl at the information desk was helpful.Mr. Richard Jones was very knowledgeable and took his time to explain everything we needed to know. Sorry some had a bad experience, but we were only there for about 35 minutes and I would go back again if I had to.

If you have an employee by the name of Melvin Evans, would you please have him contact Beverly in Arizona. I am very worried about him. Thank you so very much.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
