The Different Kinds of Counseling at Philly Family Life Counseling
General Counseling – If you’re looking for someone to talk to, are having trouble coping, are experiencing a change in your mental health, or just need a neutral space to discuss an issue you’re facing, general counseling is an option for you.
Grief – If you’ve recently experienced a loss, grief counseling may be best for you. Grief is a natural feeling after the death of a loved one, a breakup, a loss of a job or relationship, but when it starts to inhibit your everyday life, it may be time to seek grief counseling.
