Caren Avery, MS, Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Struggling with feelings of anxiety or depression? Unresolved issues at home? Stressed at work? All of these issues may lead a person to feel like there's no way out. Seeking counseling for any situation offers practical professional support, keeps one from navigating their circumstances alone, and offers hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. People seek out counseling for a variety of reasons: personal struggles with anxiety/depression, suicidal ideations, self-injurious behaviors, relationship conflicts, help with parenting difficulties, loss of self-confidence, or spiritual dilemmas. No matter what the issue may be counseling or coaching can help you work through just about any problem.
