Talking with a licensed counselor is different than talking to a friend, relative, teacher or other person in your everyday life to facilitate the healing process. Counseling is a form of professional help in which people have an opportunity to take a more objective look at their lives.
Counselors are trained to be objective, unbiased listeners, who can help you get to the root of what is bothering you in a way that will help you to help yourself. ACS therapists are also trained to deal with a variety of crisis situations (such as suicide, rape, sexual harassment, etc.) and have an extensive referral network of mental health professionals in the Wasatch Front to ensure clients get the help they need.
Counseling tends to be focused on specific problems and concerns, and includes options for problem solving.
