Joel Whitney, Counselor
Great guy. We took my son to see him a few years ago when my son was 9 years old for anxiety issues. Trevor was very anxious about counseling but by the end of the first session he was much more relaxed and began looking forward to his visits with Joel. My son recently began middle school and was having difficulties and actually asked to talk with Joel again. Joel connects well with my son and Trevor really opens up with him. My wife and I appreciate the additional tools and materials that we get as parents from Joel as well. Highly recommended. He did a great job with our son.

Lakeshore Counseling Service
As I had stated in the previous review Lakeshore Counseling Services is the best at assessing and evaluating Substance Abuse and comorbity issues within an individual or group setting. Terry Burns, the owner, beleives in the strengths of individuals and person centered planning. However, he does not make decsions for his clients. They make decsions for themselves. Check LCS out, and make that call!

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.
