Is counseling for you?

At one time or another, most people will find themselves in a situation where they could benefit from the services of a trained therapist in order to cope with a challenging life issue or transition. However, some people feel uncomfortable asking for help or feel wary of counseling. But at times when friends and family aren’t enough to solve a problem or cope with grief, anger or depression, professional help can make the difference in how you cope, move forward and resolve internal conflicts.

At Far West, we consider it a sign of strength to get help. You are in charge of your life, and if you feel that your problems or those of your family members are interfering with your ability to function at your very best at work or at home, it is time to get help. The sooner you start working on things, the sooner you will start feeling better and managing your life and your relationships better.
