Counseling Q & A

What is counseling?

Counseling is a therapeutic technique that involves collaboration between licensed mental health professionals and their clients. Counselors provide guidance, offer support, and help clients develop coping strategies to navigate obstacles in their lives.

With a wide range of counseling techniques, the experienced team at The Modalities Group can help individuals, couples, and families through mental health challenges. Effective counseling promotes overall health and wellness, allowing you to better process emotions and respond to stress.

Are there different types of counseling?

The Modalities Group practices multiple types of counseling, including:

Family counseling

Family counseling strives to improve communication and resolve conflict within families. This is typically a short-term type of counseling that allows families to develop and maintain a healthy relationship with clear, open communication.

Parenting support

Raising a child can be challenging, even in the best of times. Whether your child struggles with behavioral issues at school or your family is navigating a major life change — divorce, marital conflict, loss of a loved one, financial instability, or career changes — professional parenting support can provide the guidance you need to maneuver these challenges.

Grief counseling

Grief is an overwhelming emotion that can be difficult to process. With effective grief counseling, the team can help you better understand the guilt, shame, denial, shock, and hopelessness you may feel after losing a loved one.

Couples counseling

Couples counseling can help you resolve past and future conflicts between you and your partner. Improving communication, gaining perspective, and reducing stress at home are some of the goals the team may set during couples counseling sessions.

Marriage counseling

Similar to couples counseling, marriage counseling strives to improve the relationship between you and your partner. While many couples seek marriage counseling when they experience conflict during their marriage, others turn to professionals before they legally wed.

Couples and marriage counseling may also help individuals struggling with intimacy issues, such as sexual boredom or unhappiness.

Who can benefit from counseling?

Anybody can benefit from professional counseling. Therapeutic techniques can help anybody improve their communication skills, resolve conflicts, and better understand their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The team may recommend counseling if you:

  • Struggle with a mental health condition
  • Are experiencing a life change
  • Have low self-esteem
  • Are having problems in your relationship
  • Frequently argue with your children, partner, or loved ones
  • Are experiencing financial difficulties
