Rochelle Individual Counseling Services

There comes a time in all of our lives that we face things that are difficult to take on by ourselves. The problem only escalates when you feel like you have nowhere to go, and no one to turn to. It is important to realize that you do not have to suffer in silence.

Talking to someone who will listen to what you have to say and can give you the tools you need to overcome your problems, is infinitely better than facing them by yourself. You will be able to start down the path of healing in an environment that is safe and therapeutic.

If this is how you are feeling, talk to one of our experienced counselors today and start on the road to recovery.

After an initial 60 to 90 minute counseling session, our counselors will be able to get to know your situation, the problems that you are facing, and begin to understand you as an individual.

The Rochelle, IL Braden Counseling Center uses a strength-based model. This means we strive to understand our clients’ strengths, while helping them to build resilience, develop coping skills, and work on self-care with family/community support.

With our help, you will be able to overcome many challenges you are facing, including:

  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Chronic Medical Illness
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief/Loss, Adjustment Disorders

Rochelle Mental Health or Depression Counseling

Depression and other mental health issues often spring up due to a variety of factors. Typically, there are specific symptoms involved with each.

If you are experiencing depression, we can help you understand the cause and effects of the symptoms you are experiencing, and we can begin to administer an effective method of treatment for your situation. Either through counseling, medication, or a combination of both, you will receive the care that is best for you.

Rochelle bipolar disorder treatment and therapy is available for individuals that have been diagnosed with this disorder. The comprehensive therapy program that we will institute will help you control and manage your situation and help you toward a regular lifestyle.

Substance Abuse Counseling in Rochelle

Deaths from substance use in 2015 reached a staggering 307,400 people, a number that continues to increase as time goes on.

Our experienced counselors offer a variety of treatments to help individuals recover from substance abuse, and to prevent it from happening again.

A Rochelle substance abuse counselor will help you on your road to recovery, as well as offering alcohol counseling if you are in need of it.

We also provide an intensive outpatient treatment program that is designed to address your addictions and abuse. We can also provide outpatient addiction counseling services.

Our experienced team is trained to administer NARCAN spray for opioid overdoses, perform substance abuse evaluations, and to provide risk education.

In addition to individual therapy, we also offer group therapy sessions, which cover a large variety of topics and can help participants understand substance abuse. It will allow people to acquire the skills needed to fight addiction by focusing on relapse prevention.

We are only happy if our clients leave our treatment program feeling they have the confidence and tools to put their substance abuse behind them.

DUI Counseling and Driver’s License Reinstatement

Sometimes we let having a good time while out for drinks get the better of us. Before you know it, you’re in your vehicle heading home, when you should have called a cab instead. These mistakes happen and before you know it, you’re pulled over and being arrested for DUI.

If you find yourself in this situation, Braden Counseling Center can perform the court ordered DUI evaluation as per the requirements set forth by the state of Illinois.

At our Rochelle office, we offer risk education courses for those that have been arrested for DUI, with additional courses at our Sycamore and Elgin locations. The course is designed to teach people how to avoid putting themselves in a situation where they can be charged with DUI again.

If your license has been suspended or revoked, our experienced DUI counselors can assist you in requesting a court hearing, guide you toward the difficult route to license reinstatement, and answer any questions that you may have about the overall process.

Domestic Violence Counseling in Rochelle, IL

There are many different reasons why abusers do what they do. We can get to the root of your abusive patterns through our domestic violence counseling program. Our counselors will address the issue, and help you make changes and improvements for the long term.

The only way you can begin to handle your feelings and emotions in a calm and honest fashion, is by breaking the patterns of abuse at their core.

We can also help those you have been victims of abuse and offer a chance to heal in a safe environment.

However, if this pattern of abuse is not addressed, it will likely continue. Therefore, if you are a victim or the perpetrator of abuse, get in touch with us immediately.

We can offer you:

  • A free initial consultation
  • Counseling
  • Flexible scheduling
  • Verification of insurance benefits
  • Cash and credit card payment options

Rochelle Trauma Informed Therapy/Counseling

Our counselors have extensive experience in trauma counseling.

Trauma-Informed Counseling (TIC) lets our clients know that we are empathetic to their situation. Perhaps the most important facet of this type of are those being heard and understood.

We will approach your situation with the question “What has happened to you?” as opposed to the negative “What is wrong with you?” during your Rochelle trauma-focused therapy session. You will also be given the respect you deserve and will never be made to feel like a burden on your counselor.

The most important step in the road to recovery for someone experiencing trauma is for a safe and therapeutic environment to be implemented.

There are coping mechanisms that will manifest themselves for those suffering from trauma, and few of them are healthy. Our counselors understand that you are only trying to find the best way possible to handle your emotions. Our trauma-informed counseling and therapy sessions will allow our counselors to not only build a rapport with you, but also help you find the best way to heal in your own way.

One example of this is through a treatment plan we use called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, used in Rochelle and our other locations. This is a psychotherapy approach that is particularly effective for clients that have been affected by trauma, especially PTSD.

By understanding that counseling or therapy is something that you need, you are already on the right path toward getting your life back.

If you are in need of individual counseling services, or trauma counseling, contact us today. At the Braden Counseling Center, we will set you on the path toward finding new ways for better days.

I was an emotional wreck when I first went. I was nervous and probably not making a lot of sense. The staff seemed to understand and immediately put me at ease. By the time I left, life just didn’t seem so bad. Thank you Braden Center for being there.
