    Why now is the best time to
    go to a Mental Health 

    Modern counselors are uniquely qualified to provide research-based techniques that circumvent life's difficulties quicker than ever.  The result is evidenced through greater improvement for clients through a combination of traditional therapy, treatment education, and up-to-date, practical 
    approaches. This creates a dynamic and efficient path for change and problem resolution.

    Today's counselors also believe in working side-by-side with their clients in bringing about self-sustaining solutions together.

    Counseling professionals, such as mental health counselors, social workers, family and marriage therapists, & psychologists are agents of change that are educated in skills training to help those who may be struggling with mental health issues. 

    Some of these may include:
    Depression, anxiety, addiction, psychosis, dementia, parenting obstacles, stress management, trauma-related difficulties, coping with financial difficulties, gender identity, childhood disorders, relationship challenges; adults and seniors transitioning through life changes.The Space Coast of Florida offers several choices of highly-skilled professionals (look under "Find a Counselor" tab at the top of this page) who provide a full range of services to children, adolescents, adults, couples, seniors, and families including:
