Therapy: It’s not just for crisis anymore. 

 

Recently, I had an “AHA! moment”.  At Radiant Counseling we believe that therapy is not just for mental health treatment due to difficult times in our lives.  Although it is common practice for people to ask, “What kind of client’s do you see” and expect us to list of the diagnoses that we treat, the answer is always, we see EVERYBODY.  Therapy can be a refresher, a check-in, a once in a while need to talk about your concerns.  Think of it in terms of the things we do daily to calibrate ourselves.  You eat a huge burger and fries for lunch; the next day you might need a salad.  You stay up too late on the phone or reading a book; the following night you may want to get to bed early.  It’s important to do the same for our thoughts and feelings.  Too often we get “stuck” in our thought processes and need a little boost to change our perspective.  One of the greatest stress relievers in this life is having the opportunity to unburden ourselves.  Counseling is a gift we can give ourselves, a spa day for our hearts and minds.    Let’s redefine common misconceptions about seeing a counselor to include monitoring our thoughts and emotions the same way we might our weight.

Community Connection

In the midst of all the uncertainty that comes with the hurricane evacuation and return, we know this can be an emotional and difficult time. Please keep us in mind if you need someone to talk to or if you know anyone else who might. The first session if free and we work with some insurances and offer a sliding scale. Give us a call or visit our website to make an appointment.

Hurricane Update

Hello –

As Hurricane Irma approaches with uncertain results and, necessary preparations being reviewed, we wanted to take a quick minute to reach out.  Should this weather system result in a voluntary or mandatory evacuation there are a few things we would like to make all of our clients aware of.  Should you voluntarily evacuate and cannot make your regularly scheduled appointment just let us know and we will take you off the calendar (no charge).  In the event of a mandatory evacuation, Radiant Counseling will close until is deemed safe by the proper authorities to return and reopen.  Both Charlotte and I have decided to make ourselves available by phone should any evacuations become necessary during the time of your REGULARLY SCHEDULED session time.  We are happy to reach out during that session time to check-in and touch base.   As always, take good care of yourselves and be safe!

Warmest Regards,

Carrie & Charlotte
