Counseling, or outpatient therapy, is a chance to talk over what is on your mind with an objective person. This individual can help you learn new skills and ways of looking at situations so that you will be more capable of solving problems on your own.
Mental health professionals use a variety of approaches to help people deal with the stressors and issues that lead you to seek therapy. WellSpan Philhaven therapists will work with you to design a treatment plan that will be most effective for you and lead you toward hope, healing, and wholeness. This sometimes involves a single method, or it may involve elements of several different methods, often referred to as an "eclectic approach" to therapy.
Below is a list of reasons why an individual may use our services:
- Counselors are non-judgmental, objective, professional, experienced helpers.
- Counselors try to make you comfortable in talking -- they understand and help.
- Counseling involves the concerns and problems individuals have in their daily lives.
- Initiating counseling and remaining in counseling is voluntary.
At WellSpan Philhaven, all counseling is confidential. We provide services for children age 3 up through senior adults.
