Feeling discouraged, sad, hopeless, unmotivated, or disinterested?

Family Services counseling services can help you or your child get back to normal, everyday functioning.

Our professional, caring therapists provide confidential counseling for children, adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety and depression.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It helps you deal with a tense situation in the office, study harder for an exam, keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps one cope. But when anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it has become a disabling disorder.

Depression

Depression is a very common but serious medical disorder. It is more than just feeling “blue” for a few days. It is feeling “down” and “low” and “hopeless” for weeks at a time.

Common Signs and Symptoms

  • Persistent sad, anxious or “empty” mood
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Feeling of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in what you used to enjoy
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue and loss of energy
  • Irritability

Fees

We accept Medicaid and many private insurance plans, and offer services on a sliding scale fee to individuals and families who live or work in Forsyth or Davie counties. Fees range from $11 to $120, based on household income and size of your family.

Children and Adolescents

It can be difficult for a parent to tell whether a child is just going through a temporary “stage” or is suffering from depression. Children or adolescents may refuse to go to school, pretend to be sick, cling to the parent or worry that he will lose the parent, get into trouble at school or with the law, feel irritable and/or misunderstood.

If a visit to the pediatrician rules out physical causes, the doctor will probably recommend an assessment by a therapist.
