Guiding Light Counseling

Mental Health Counseling

Our mental health counselors work with individuals, groups and families on a variety of mental health issues:

  • Addiction / substance abuse
  • Aging
  • Anger management
  • Career issues
  • Depression
  • Marital and relationship problems
  • Self image
  • Stress
  • Suicide

Our mental health counselors work with individuals, families, and groups to address and treat mental and emotional disorders and to promote mental health. They are trained in a variety of therapeutic techniques used to address issues such as depression, anxiety, substance use, suicidal impulses, stress, trauma, low self-esteem, and grief. They also help with job and career concerns, educational decisions, mental and emotional health issues, and relationship problems. In addition, they may be involved in community outreach, advocacy, and mediation activities. Our mental health counselors often work closely with other mental health specialists, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, and school counselors. Mental health is reflected in productive activities, fulfilling relationships, successful adaptation to change and coping with adversity. Mental health problems like depression, anxiety and family conflict keep us from mental wellness.
