What is Counseling and How Does it Work?

You don’t have to struggle through difficult times alone. Anyone can suffer from emotional health problems, and over a lifetime most of us will. Counseling is the process of resolving emotional and relational issues by talking with a professional trained to help people. The method of change begins by first clearly defining the problem and then developing a plan with your counselor to start addressing these needs. Counseling may involve discussing your thoughts and feelings, increasing your understanding of yourself and others, and developing new skills to improve your quality of life.

Cumberland Healthcare is pleased to offer comprehensive behavioral health services with Karl Ader, LPC/Counselor, at two locations, Cumberland and Turtle Lake. For more information, or to make an appointment, call (715) 822-7530.

Cumberland Healthcare also offers psychiatric mental health nursing with the addition of Jay Jevne, PMHNP-BC to our staff.

They also contribute to policy development, quality improvement, practice evaluation, and healthcare reform.  Psychiatric nurse practitioners can and do provide psychotherapy, in addition to managing the medical side of psychiatric illnesses. They may also offer advice and support to people and their families just as a psychiatrist or other medical doctor might.  Jay Jevne, PMHNP-BC, manages patient care in a clinical setting.

When should you talk about mental health?

It is time to talk about your mental health when:

  • You just don’t “feel right” and aren’t sure why.
  • Your thoughts or things you do just don’t seem to be the way other people think or behave.
  • Your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors are starting to affect your life at home, work/school, or with family and friends in a bad way.
  • You’ve had some of the signs and symptoms below for more than a week:
    • Feeling sad, empty, hopeless, or worthless.
    • Sensitivity to sound, sight, smell, or touch.
    • Feeling overly worried.
    • Not being able to perform at work/school.
    • Feeling like your brain is playing tricks on you and hearing knocking or scratching sounds or your name being called.
    • Loss of interest in things you used to enjoy or withdrawal from others.
    • Changes in sleep patterns or energy levels.
    • Irritability or restlessness.
