Mental health is essential for your overall well-being. It impacts your ability to live a healthy, happy, and productive life. According to Mental Health America (MHA), 19% of adults live with a mental illness, and 4.55% of them have a severe mental illness. Further, CDC reveals the link between the COVID-19 pandemic and adults’ mental health. The percentage of adults with anxiety or depression increased from 36.4% to 41.5% during August 2020–February 2021.
Though mental illnesses are common, do not wait to get the required treatment and care. Untreated mental issues can increase your risk of unsafe and unhealthy behaviors, including alcohol/drug abuse, suicidal thoughts, and more.

While medications can help treat your mental health conditions, counseling also plays a crucial role in your mental wellness. Counseling can help you overcome previous trauma or mental challenges related to your situation, thus reducing stress, anxiety, anger, and other triggers. We offer one-on-one counseling with a professional mental health provider in a comfortable and confidential environment.
During the counseling session, we will discuss your mental health issues (such as depression, anger, relationship problems, stress, etc.) and the symptoms you have been experiencing. We will also review your medical and family history.
We will create a personalized treatment plan or refer you to a specialist based on the factors evaluated in the counseling session.
