Counseling in Difficult Times

At Sanford Behavioral Health, we offer counseling in a variety of formats for many types of emotional and behavioral struggles.

Your behavioral health team can provide counseling during times of stress, grief and loss.


What Does a Counselor Do?

Counselors, or therapists, are health care professionals who specialize in addressing behavioral health issues. Therapy is meant to help with behavioral, emotional or relationship struggles.

Speaking to a well-trained person offering understanding, compassion and perspective can go a long way towards helping you work through what’s been weighing on you.


Should I See a Therapist?

If you feel overwhelmed, there is no shame in reaching out for support. Asking for help from a professional is not a sign of weakness.

The American Psychological Association advises you reach out to a trained mental health professional if:

  • You worry constantly
  • You feel like you can’t handle things by yourself
  • Your mental health is affecting your relationships, work, sleep patterns, or appetite
  • You feel trapped or helpless
  • Your normal ways of coping with stress or emotional distress are not helping
  • You think about committing suicide or wishing to die

At Sanford Behavioral Health, we’ll help you with your emotional distress so you can get better health and well-being. Learn more about mental health.
