Because mental health issues are often unique and require highly specialized solutions, there are few general resources available for it. You may be able to find some support including counseling and primary care through the Community Mental Health Center network, or through some specialized or private clinics. The best way to find mental health care is often through a direct referral from a physician or other health care provider.
A “Kitchen Table” Approach Counseling
The “Kitchen Table” approach to psychotherapy and clinical counseling dictates that we are all human beings creatively, lovingly and wonderfully made and worthy of dignity, compassion and respect. It is only after our basic humanness is acknowledged that we come to the table in our respective “roles” of client/patient and counselor in the therapeutic relationship. Don’t wait any longer. Life is short and you cannot feed others if you yourself are not fed and nourished. Come to the table, the Kitchen Table today.
