What do you love most about your job?

Being a counselor requires taking on many different roles. These range from unconditional supporter all the way to frank critic. Everyone is unique and often requires a blend of multiple approaches. This ensures that counseling is always dynamic and interesting for us.

However, the best part of counseling is instilling and fostering hope and watching an individual grow past their expected boundaries and flourish.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Our primary goal is to provide you with symptomatic relief and improvement in functioning and well-being. We believe that people have the ability to improve their circumstances, symptoms, feelings, and/or thoughts even when that seems impossible. We will work closely with you while we help to move you to a more positive and functional situation.

We believe that people have the ability to improve their circumstances, symptoms, feelings, and/or thoughts even when that seems impossible. We will work closely with you while we help to move you to a more positive and functional situation.

Generally, our counselors' first step will be to learn all about you and what has brought you to a point in your life where you are seeking help. We will ask you to tell us all about yourself, your life, and your current situation. We then seek patterns and attempt to make connections between your past and your current situation. Through this process we are generally able to develop a comprehensive treatment plan and have a good understanding of what therapeutic modality would work best for you. We will work together from that point forward and establish a strong and mutually trusting therapeutic relationship.

The most important part of the experience will be to instill and foster hope and to make sure that you feel supported.

You are not alone.

Why should our clients choose you?

Crosby Counseling Center offers very affordable counseling services that cost approximately 25% to 30% below the average rates of our competitors. We try to make counseling as accessible as possible because we understand the importance of mental health in the human experience. Our rates are about the same as a normal insurance co-pay. We are an out of network provider for most insurance companies, but can provide a reimbursement forms that should allow you to save 60 percent of our fee through your insurance company.

Therapist FAQs

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
