Buckman Caroline LCSW
With full attention, Ms. Buckman listened to me as I told her about a relationship problem I was having. She was insightful as to being able to identify underying issues that I had not thought of, which helped me to understand actions and directions I had taken that possibly could have been avoided. As a business person,on a schedule, I appreciate how my appointment always began on time. Ms. Buckman is not judgmental and approched my situtaion in a creative and knowledgable manner. I would highly reccomend her to anyone.

Buckman Caroline LCSW
Caroline has been my therapist over time. She has assisted me through several profound changes that were crisis situations for me. I always felt supported yet challenged, encouraged to find deeper meaning in painful events, and held accountable for the choices I was making as I progressed in treatment. Caroline introduced me to new ways of looking at the circumstances of my life that I have carried with me over many years.

Hope Springs Counseling Center
Allison B. Leggin made me feel so comfortable. She helped me to see the real "me" . She was very caring and understanding. I did not feel rushed however, I knew I had an hour. I felt we had a connection and that is important with counseling.
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.
