Can We Help You?
Welcome to Wayfarers Counseling.
Deciding to get help is a big step, and for many people takes a lot of courage. When people reach out to a therapist, we believe that they have done something very important. They are making a choice to see if they can get unstuck, if they can get away from self-destructive habits, or if they can stop feeling scared all of the time. They may be depressed, or anxious, or simply numb. They may be tired of allowing people to treat them poorly.
In our experience, we find that people often genuinely want to change but don't know how. At Wayfarers, we don't take for granted how much courage it takes to call us or to reach out for the first time. When people schedule an appointment and come to meet us, they need to know that they can trust us.
At Wayfarers we work hard to make each individual feel safe the first time they walk in the door, through creating an atmosphere that is warm, accepting, mutually respectful, and that honors the work of therapy. The heart of that work acknowledges that while change is hard, not changing often is unbearably painful for people, and is at the heart of the symptoms that lead people to seek help in the first place.
