  • 1. What is counseling?
    In counseling sessions, you have the opportunity to talk about your problems with a trained and licensed professional who will listen attentively and without judgment. Questions may be asked to help you think about things in a new way. The goal of counseling is to provide a safe place where you can explore and more clearly understand yourself, your feelings, your behaviors, and your needs. This knowledge will empower you to identify options and make choices to better manage your life and resolve your problems.
  • 2. Why should I or a family member go to counseling?
    Most people go to counseling when their usual way of handling problems is no longer working. It may be that talking with friends or family is not as helpful as it has been in the past, or it may be that the problem is about friends and family. Some people have been struggling with problems for a long time, and they finally go to counseling when the problems get in the way of their relationships, their jobs, or their ability to get things done day-to-day. Most people who go to counseling are experiencing uncomfortable or unpleasant feelings, such as sadness, anxiety, anger, uncertainty, or just a general sense of being overwhelmed or out of balance. Others have ongoing challenges (depression, anxiety, or addiction, for example), and go to counseling to improve their moods and functioning, and to attain and maintain recovery.
  • 3. How many counseling sessions will I need?
    The counseling journey is not always a straight line or a predictable path. Individual situations require individual treatment plans. Some people only require one or two sessions to talk through an issue, make a decision, and move forward. Others need more time in which to work through past hurts, untangle complicated relationships, seek forgiveness, and learn new behavioral patterns or communication techniques. Some clients see counseling as a regular form of personal upkeep. For them, monthly check-ins may be enough to maintain balance and personal harmony.
  • 4. Do I have to be Christian to come to All Things New Counseling?
    No. At All Things New our clients set the tone for whether or not to incorporate faith in their sessions. We respect the wishes of clients who prefer not to have issues of faith or spirituality as an integral part of their therapy.
  • 5. What if my spouse doesn’t want to come to marital counseling?
    Each person must take responsibility for their own commitment to growth and change. Sometimes one of a couple is ready to do so before the other is. You can begin counseling individually if it is not yet possible to do so together.
  • 6. Do you take insurance?
    All Things New Counseling is recognized by many insurance companies and employee assistance plans and can file insurance claims on your behalf. Contact your insurance company or your counselor to verify coverage.
  • 7. Can I do counseling sessions over the phone?
    Yes. All Things New counselors can provide phone and video sessions, if needed.
