At Cedar Valley Counseling Services, we understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to mental health.
You are unique. And so are your concerns. Our goal is to provide the knowledge, skills, and, most importantly, the support you need.
What Is Counseling?
Life happens. And sometimes it is a lot to handle. We’ve been there as well.
Professional counseling provides you with support, coping skills, and someone trained to listen during times of stress or struggle.
We are also here to help you celebrate those wins, no matter how small. (And yes, getting out of bed and showering are both wins!)
Seeking therapy may help you learn techniques for reducing anxiety and coping with depression. You can process grief and trauma without judgment.
Therapists give you a safe space to let your guard down, be “you” and share it all without having to sugar coat it.
A counseling session is like a mirror to what you are saying, thinking or feeling. Sometimes you aren’t able to understand what you are dealing with until someone else says it.
At times, your counselor may (gently) challenge you or encourage you to see things or try things in a different way.
What Counseling is Not
For the professional counseling relationship to develop and be of the utmost help, it takes time. And effort. On your part and ours.
We’ve learned counseling is not:
A quick fix
A one and done process
An instant answer or solution
We are willing to work with you if you are willing to work with us.
We do know counseling can be one of the best things you will ever do for yourself, your family, and your loved ones.
People seek individual counseling for a variety of reasons. You may be living with depression, coping with anxiety, or dealing with too much stress from work. We can help.
Sometimes the circumstances are painful grief or trauma. We can help.
Maybe your life just isn’t playing out the way you hoped and you are coping in unhealthy ways. We can help.
Individual therapy appointments are available for teens (16+) and adults.
Almost every committed relationship will experience ups and downs. Sometimes you can talk through things, but other times it can be tough. We can help you learn more about how relationships work and how you can be there for each other.
We help couples navigate relationship stressors, improve communication and offer relationship or parenting support.
We work with each committed couple as a unit to understand your unique dynamic. We are here to support your goals as a couple.
