Bonheur & Associates Counseling Center LTD
Dr. Bonheur,is the best,i would recremend him anytime.We used to take some of the kids to see him, as well as Tim, and I.Dr. Bonheurs office is in an old house, and when he sees you, he takes you to a room that looks like a den with a fireplace in it,to me it makes me more comfortable,and less business. The more comfortable a patient is, the more they feel like telling the Dr. just what the problem is,and he uses examples from his own lifes experience,and I love that,plus he doesn't act like he is better then you are,because there is no perfect home life,but the Dr. gives us advice on how to cope with things when they seem like they are unbearable,we took his advice lots of times,and we are so glad we did.Dr. Bonheur, is down to earth,and those are the Dr.'s we need in our lives.

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.
