Individual Counseling in Arlington Heights, IL
Individual Mental Health Counselor Arlington Heights IL: Every interaction we have in life involves a relationship. Whether it is with a teacher, a sibling, a coworker, or even with ourselves, understanding our relationships helps us navigate through life.
Emotional health, when out of balance, and when conflicted with relationship challenges, can manifest itself as symptoms of anxiety, depression, inattention, stress, insomnia, lack of focus and anger or frustration. This can lead to increased conflicts, a breakdown in communication, poor boundaries, isolation and overall dissatisfaction in life. Often, people end up focusing only on the symptoms of a problem and are not taught the skills or given the tools necessary to change the root cause of a life challenge.
