It was hard to find a therapist who would listen patiently and yet drop a marker on the relevant moments in the painful and chaotic conversations that l had to unpack. l didn't know where to begin or end with my trouble when l first met Halee Roberts, yet without inserting herself or imposing her own direction she has helped me find perspective--- a ground of understanding my past enough to move forward. She has helped me recognize and affirm what innate ability l have to heal and make better decisions for myself. It has taken time to do this. But even in the early sessions she provided a "take away" reflection or practical action to use as a tool for resolving or living with daily difficulties. Also I feel relief to have found a counselor who is transparent about the process of achieving healing and empowerment. She has a sense of humor that has helped me when l have brought painful or ridiculous matters before her. I appreciate that she doesn't make me feel like an idiot who will never be able to function without her advice and counsel--she is fundamentally respectful of a person's dignity. In general I feel that she has already restored my long lost optimism for my life. If you have all but despaired of counseling as l had, give her a try.

The map is incorrect, if it sends you to Greenland. The office is located near the intersection of North College Avenue and North Street. Correct maps are found on Google, Yahoo and Dr. Clemons' web site.
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.
