Individual and Family Counseling
LSS Counseling and Family Resources offers a full range of mental health services which integrate sound professional practices.
In the first sessions, in collaboration with your counselor you will set goals for your sessions and improvements in your life. Establishing clear goals helps provide direction and lets you monitor progress. The exact direction of your counseling experience will depend on the issues you bring or wish to address in the counseling, your counselor's perspective, and the mutual goals you set for your work together.
Typically, you will meet with your counselor for 45-minute sessions once a week or twice a month for a specified period of time.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Counseling Experience
Define your goals.
Think about what you would like to get out of counseling. It is helpful to write a list of events, relationship issues, or feelings that you think are contributing to your distress or symptoms. Take time at the beginning of each session to consider your expectations and define the outcomes you want from your sessions. Self-exploration and change involve hard work, and sometimes painful feelings are stirred up in the process of healing. Counselors are trained to pay close attention to these issues and will probably encourage you to discuss these feelings openly.
Be active in your participation.
Because this time is about you, please be as active as you can in deciding how best to use the time. Be honest with your counselor and give her or him feedback about how you see the sessions progressing, and about how you are feeling.
Development, healing and growth can take time, effort, and patience. All of your coping skills, behavior patterns, and thought processes have been learned and reinforced over a long period of time, so change can be difficult and slower than you want.
Follow your counselor's recommendations.
Counseling is intended to improve your life and relationships outside of counseling; making efforts to try out and practice new behaviors, approaches, or ways of thinking can be a crucial success factor in your counseling experience.
