ONLINE COUNSELING TELEHEALTH

Wellness is possible even during COVID-19. However, it can be hard accessing the services you need during times like this. Below is a roadmap to help you understand the steps involved in receiving counseling or psychiatric services online at MCP.

ANXIETY & DEPRESSION

Anxiety, in and of itself, serves a natural purpose in our lives. It reminds us to look both ways before crossing the street or to study for an upcoming final. But sometimes anxiety can become overwhelming, making it difficult to know how to react or cope in healthy, productive ways. Almost everyone goes through periods of increased stress and anxiety, and there are a variety of factors that can cause or contribute to your anxiety symptoms. Many of us aren’t taught how to give ourselves a break or see our situation from a larger perspective, and it can be difficult to learn how to observe our thoughts and emotions instead of being wrapped up in them.

SPIRITUAL COUNSELING

Many times, it is difficult to find or understand what Christian counseling provides. It is the hope of MCP to share the basics of ethical Christian counseling on this page. As a precursor, within ethical Christian counseling, each person is respected and shown dignity. Each person has the option of what therapeutic model is best for them. If an individual chooses to begin their therapeutic journey and does not want faith-based counseling, professional therapy will be provided without any religious pressures. This includes any possible religious affiliations of the therapist. The focus of therapy is each client’s personal and specific needs.

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Dealing with stress? Need help to get your life back on track? Stress is the body’s natural response to challenging or dangerous situations. It triggers your “fight or flight” response, causing your body to produce more cortisol and adrenaline to give you the extra push to do what you must. In some cases, it can save your life while in others it encourages you to succeed at a presentation, exam, job interview, etc.

ADHD COUNSELING

MCP has been working with children and adults that struggle with ADHD and other mental health concerns in many capacities for over ten years. We help children, their parents, and adults learn strategies for managing the struggles associated with ADHD, implementing treatments that may include learning self-soothing skills, organizational skills, managing activity levels, learning how to socialize with others, mindfulness training, learning about emotions and how to interact with these emotions.

PTSD AND TRAUMA

Do certain images, sounds or thoughts trigger traumatic memories that make it difficult for you to have a healthy and happy life? Are you constantly on edge, worried the fear, pain, and distress you are experiencing will never end? Do you logically know that you didn’t cause or deserve what happened, but your emotions aren’t letting you feel that way? Maybe you have survived a car wreck, violent crime or physical or sexual abuse. Perhaps you experience physical symptoms such as tension, difficulty breathing or a racing heartbeat, or you shut down emotionally and physically as your mind replays the memory of the traumatic experience. 

BEHAVIORIAL DISORDERS

A child would not be a child if they did not occasionally display unruly or defiant behaviors due to hunger, fatigue or simply an inability to communicate. When a child is continually “acting out” or inadequately reacts to everyday situations, however, it could be a sign of a behavioral disorder. As trained specialists in behavioral disorders, the MCP providers are committed to helping parents get the help their children need.

DISORDERED EATING

Disordered eating is a serious condition that disrupts an individual’s regular eating habits. It is characterized by eating too much or too little, accompanied by excessive concerns about one’s weight and body image. It often stems from or co-occurs with depression, anxiety disorders, or substance abuse.
