What can a licensed professional counselor help me with?
Just about anyone can benefit from meeting with a licensed counselor. They can help you understand and deal with feelings or issues that you are struggling with. A therapist can also teach you skills to cope with emotional or mental stressors you are facing.
Which therapist is right for me?
Finding the right therapist for you can seem overwhelming, but you can narrow down your search by considering what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Even if that means you’d be more comfortable communicating with a male or female therapist, take a few minutes to read through some counselor profiles to see their different areas of expertise, their philosophies on counseling, and learn a little more about them. If you feel like your matched counselor isn’t the right one for you, you can choose to match with a different counselor at any time.
How long do I have to wait to get an appointment with a counselor?
After taking our short questionnaire, you can instantly message the counselor that you’ve been matched to and schedule a time with them for a live chat or live phone session. You can message them as often as you would like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
