"ONLINE COUNSELING & PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING AVAILABLE FOR ADULTS! “I want to stop feeling this way. Why can’t I shut off my ‘worry spigot?!!’” How many times have you said this to yourself? Constantly feeling uneasy and worrying about things – even silly things – and fearing the worst are your constant unwelcome companions. It’s so hard to relax and there doesn’t seem to be a “turn-off” switch for your feelings. You just want to figure out what's wrong and enjoy life, but it seems impossible. It’s awful that you have to feel this way and you may not feel like you want to take medication to deal with it. So what are you to do?"

They want to experience greater health and well-being, at work, home, and everywhere in between. They know how to survive and are full of strengths, however, may not always notice them. Although they will find it difficult to reach out for help, they courageously do so anyway."
