Mental Health Counseling and the LGBTQ Community Part II

Please join us as Saralee Fackelman continues to discuss her 25+ year career as a licensed mental health therapist in the Tampa Bay Area.  Last week, Brenda J. Simpson also joined the show as Sara discussed the specific needs our LGBTQ community can address in order to achieve sound mental health fitness.  They also reviewed the signs that indicate when a person should actually seek therapy.  We explored what to look for in a therapist, what to expect when working with a counselor and how to find the financial means to pay for therapy.

This week, we will delve more into the dynamics of what makes a productive therapeutic session highlighting the techniques that can be the most effective to induce change.  We’ll also continue our discussion regarding how to finance counseling by putting forth the fiscal steps in order to “invest” in oneself with a good mental health therapist.



Please grow with us by contributing your questions, suggestions and comments to build a better community.
