What Happens During a Psychological Services Session?
Counseling is a process of discovery and understanding. It seeks to help you be more aware of what concerns or troubles you. As a result, it can help with making those decisions, choices, or changes that are right for you.
The counselor's role is to be understanding, respectful and non-judgmental in his/her interactions with you. What is shared in session will be kept confidential within parameters as set out by the California code of legal and ethical standards for mental health care.
