If you’re visiting our website you likely are considering whether counseling could help. Maybe you’ve been in counseling before or someone mentioned that it helped them. Most often, we begin to recognize that what’s not working in our lives isn’t getting better on its own, in fact, it likely is getting worse. We come to accept that what we’ve tried so far hasn’t really been successful. Maybe some of you are taking medication to help with how you feel but it just doesn’t seem to be the answer. What we know about many of life’s challenges is that we must change our approach to achieve the kind of success we desire. This may mean changing how we perceive things, maybe how we react to things, and surely how we handle situations. We all have areas of life where we just don’t seem to handle things well. At MBHA, we strive to achieve improvement in all the areas above by helping you gain a new understanding of your problems and an effective approach to handling them.
