Counseling Services Schaumburg IL

Because many of our neighbors live with less-than-optimal mental and emotional health, there is a large need for quality and affordable counseling services in Schaumburg IL. That's where Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center comes in. Individual by individual, and family by family, we are helping to improve the quality of life for many of our neighbors in Schaumburg. By providing affordable yet high-quality counseling services to individuals, couples, and youths, we are teaching people who to cope with life's anxieties and how to find happiness, even when there seems to be no way.

Why Do People Need Counseling?

Mental and emotional health is a delicate balance and is contingent upon one's environment. When things are going well, our emotional and psychological condition reflects that. But when things are going bad, our mental and emotional health begins to deteriorate. What's scary about this fact is that there are lots of people, many of whom are right here in Schaumburg IL, who have had things "going bad" for them for many years or even decades, and they've never gotten help or even tried counseling!

We live in a culture that teaches us to "pick ourselves up by the bootstraps." "Don't cry unless you want something to cry about." We're often told, "You think you've got it bad? "There are people out there who have it worse than you," as if this is supposed to make us feel better! Further, it's often the people we should be able to turn to most that are the most misunderstanding and inpatient. Sometimes, pouring everything out on a stranger can be very therapeutic.

Will Going to Counseling Change Me?

With the average person, it's about a 50/50 mix of needing to change behaviors and needing to change perceptions to achieve a higher quality of life. Yes, if you are doing things that are hurting others, then you need someone to point that out and help you to empathize with those around you. But what if you're the one that's being hurt by others?

One of the ways that counseling can benefit many people is by giving them the power to speak up for themselves. At Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center, a lot of our clients are suffering from external problems, such as abusive spouses, parents, and others. In these situations, it's not the client who needs to change; it's the people around them. However, we know that people aren't going to stop being abusive and hurtful just because we want them to. In these cases, we have to put our foot down and set our boundaries, even if it means walking away!

Do I Need Counseling?

Since it's often our home environment, friends, and family that are most dysfunctional and unhealthy, we sometimes need to go outside of these relationships to get the help, direction, and perspective we need. If you are thinking about seeking professional counseling services in Schaumburg IL, Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center invites you to contact us and set up an initial appointment. After all, it's free.
