By the time I stopped into Coastal Wellness, I had spent 5 years working with medical doctors who were unable to identify the cause of my pain or provide a diagnosis. My symptoms included neuropathy in my right leg, and intense muscle spasms in my neck, shoulders and back. I lost my physical flexibility, the simple pleasure of sleeping through the night, and most of my happiness.So what changed? I met Brooke who used medical massage and specific exercises to help me get my life back. After 2.5 months of scheduled massages, my neuropathy is completely gone, and most days I am pain free. I have been able to resume my hobbies, sleep all night, enjoy my family, and I am very happy once again! While I still have a few more medical massages left, I'm confident I will be 100% pain free. So, if you are looking for hope, do stop in and make sure you ask for Brooke. She very well may change your life too! I am eternally grateful.Kathryn

A friend and I went in to get our feet detoxed we loved it. The staff was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Can't wait to go back for a massage.
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.
