Counseling Facts

Did you know you can interview a counselor before you start using them? Call and chat with a counselor to see if they are the right one for you.

Most insurance companies will pay for your counseling appointment with you paying the same co-pay you pay to see your medical doctor.

The number of counseling sessions can vary greatly. You may want to just have a few sessions to work on one specific timely problem or you may be in counseling a while to deal with deeper issues.

There is individual counseling, couple counseling, and family counseling.  Which do you want? Find out if your counselor has experience with couple or family counseling (they all have experience with individual counseling).

by Amber McLaughlin | May 29, 2013

"Many times, I hear people say that they ’should be able’ to handle whatever is wrong on their own. According to whom?" - Stacey Brown, MA, LMHC, NCC

The winner of ACA’s first Counseling Awareness Month Publicity Contest is a private practitioner in Fort Myers, Fla., specializing in individual, couples, and family psychotherapy, as well as the Director of the Human Services at Edison State College.

In addition to putting up posters around campus, promoting CAM on her personal Facebook page and the Facebook pages of Edison State College, and an email campaign to various departments and students, Stacey Brown wrote a powerful article, which was just published in the Fort Myers News Press.

Currently, Brown is exploring speaking opportunities to engage students and the public at large about the importance of counseling. She received a full year of membership to ACA and free registration to the ACA 2014 Conference & Expo in Hawaii.

Congratulations, Stacey! Your passion and dedication is making a difference, for your profession and for the world.
