Do I Need Counseling?

We all have unique and personal ways of coping with stress and loss. But sometimes, despite our best efforts to get through tough times, we need a little outside help. That’s where counseling comes in. Talking to a professional counselor can help you gain insight into problems, grow as a person, and learn positive ways of coping with life’s challenges.

Lakeside Counseling & Hypnotherapy specializes in helping clients through a variety of techniques including: counseling (cognitive-behavioral therapy, strengths-based, solution-focused therapy), hypnotherapy, and Emotional Freedom Techniques.
