Counseling typically involves talk therapy to address emotional issues and behavior patterns, while psychiatry integrates medication management into the treatment plan. Both can complement each other, offering a holistic approach to mental health.

Absolutely. Counseling isn't just for mental health disorders; it's a valuable resource for anyone seeking support and guidance in managing life stressors, improving relationships, and enhancing overall well-being.

The first session typically involves discussing your concerns, goals, and treatment preferences. It's an opportunity to establish rapport with your therapist or psychiatrist and collaboratively create a plan tailored to your needs.

The timeline for seeing results varies, as it depends on individual factors and the nature of the concerns. Some individuals experience positive changes after a few sessions, while others may require more time for lasting effects. Most people report significant improvements in their mental and emotional well-being after about six months of treatment.

Many insurance plans cover mental health counseling services, and our therapists and psychiatrists accept several different insurance companies. Please call us at 954-559-2936 for more details (have your insurance card handy when you call!) It's always important to educate yourself so that you understand your specific coverage, including deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments.
