Counseling Q & A

What is counseling?

Counseling is a therapeutic strategy to empower you to achieve goals and improve your overall mental and emotional state.

The goals of the counseling available at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry are to help you recognize the challenges you face in life and ensure you have the tools necessary to overcome them.

Counseling is also an essential part of treatment plans to address a range of mental, emotional, and behavioral conditions.

Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry offers in-office counseling for preteens, teens, and adults. The providers take an empathetic, patient-centered approach to guide you through each counseling session. They also offer referrals to area therapists if you need additional treatment.

When should I consider counseling?

You might benefit from the counseling services available at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry if you’re receiving treatment for conditions like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance use disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The providers can also recommend counseling if you’re having difficulties managing traumatic events, grief, or loss, have a desire to improve your self-confidence, or want to achieve specific goals.

What can I expect during my initial counseling session?

During your initial counseling session at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatric, the providers review your life circumstances and any symptoms you have to better understand your needs. They also discuss your intentions for counseling and can help you set goals for ongoing sessions.

Your counselor guides you through a conversation to help you recognize negative thought patterns or beliefs that hold you back. They offer resources to strengthen your self-esteem and empower you to lead a more fulfilling, purposeful life.

The number of counseling sessions you need depends on the issues you want to address. Your counselor discusses the timeline for follow-up sessions based on your mental and emotional health and goals.

If you need more intensive therapy to cope with anxiety, depression, or other psychiatric conditions, the providers can refer you to local therapists for additional treatment. They can also coordinate your care plan with your therapist so you have the support you need to thrive in all areas of your life.
