Counseling & Therapy Services
Counseling involves working with a mental health provider on a specific issue for a limited amount of time. For example, counseling can help you if you’re having problems with your marriage or if you have difficulty managing stress and want guidance on tools you can use when you are stressed out. Usually, counseling focuses on a specific issue for a limited amount of time. Counselors work with individuals or groups, and many professionals draw from a variety of experiences to connect with patients. A counselor may see underlying patterns and concerns that affect the issues at hand, and may recommend that you start therapy.
Mental Health Counselors can help treat mental health conditions and other sources of distress, such as relationship problems or bereavement. They do this by providing people with a space to explore their feelings and by teaching them beneficial skills and coping strategies. They may use a variety of therapeutic techniques to help a person manage anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions.

Therapists focus on you as an individual, how you see yourself and the world, your thoughts, and your behaviors, as well as the underlying patterns of why you do the things you do. For example, if you were suffering from depression, you and your mental health therapist can explore how depression impacts your everyday life and how to develop better coping strategies so that you can feel better. Therapy can be more long-term and include counseling on specific issues that arise during your conversations with your therapist. Many clinicians are trained in both therapy and counseling.
Mental Health Counselors may also specialize in specific conditions, traumatic experiences, or addictions. It is important that a person feels comfortable with their counselor, as their relationship with them will likely have an impact on whether or not their treatment works.

At Morgan Mental Health our medication management is provided by our Medication Management Team, who work closely with your therapist to ensure the most effective combination of therapy and medication for your mental health and wellness.
Drugs cannot cure mental illnesses. Rather, they work to control many of the most troubling symptoms, often enabling people with mental disorders to return to normal or near-normal functioning. Reducing symptoms with medication can also enhance the effectiveness of other treatments, such as psychotherapy (a type of counseling).
