Counseling for Individuals
RAD Counseling Center offers counseling for both individuals and couples. Below is an outline of our services for individuals, listed as common topics that are typically discussed during one or more stages of the counseling process.
A divorce or breakup requires an adjustment from partnership to independence. You will need to learn how to be on your own again. This transition can be emotionally, physically and psychologically challenging. You may find that family and friends are not able to provide you with the level of support you need. Counseling helps you process these changes and create a plan for thriving despite the challenges.
Deciding to Stay or Go
Are you confused as to whether you want to leave or remain in your relationship? This is often a subject that is not easily discussed with family and friends. You may not want them to know the intimate details of your relationship, or you may find that your loved ones are unable to provide unbiased opinions. In couples counseling, you can discuss your relationship and explore your options in a safe and empathetic setting.
Taking Care of the Children
The number one concern for clients with families is most often how a divorce or breakup will impact their children. Counseling can help you decide the best way to approach difficult conversations, such as telling your children that you are separating. Adjusting to co-parenting or to being a single parent becomes easier with the guidance of an experienced counselor.
Jumping Back into the Dating Pool
Before you dip your toe into the dating pool again, it is essential that you process what went wrong in your previous relationship. Processing the past will help you avoid repeating habits or behaviors that no longer serve you. From exploring how to choose a quality partner to learning effective communications skills, counseling will prepare you to begin your next relationship with a healthy, positive outlook.
Sex with Someone New
While to some people the idea of having sex with a new partner is exciting, to others it can appear terrifying. Having children, stress, age and changes in lifestyle impact the way we feel about our bodies and about sex and intimacy. Counseling can provide guidance and reassurance as you determine how you want to enter this new phase of your life.
