How do I know that counseling can be helpful?

Most of us face struggles at some point in life that often disrupt our ability to sleep, have peace of mind, or fills us something else not great for our health. Whether you or someone you love could benefit from counseling, consider these 5 questions:

  1. Is a significant amount of time every week spent thinking about the problem?
  2. Is the problem embarrassing, to where you want to hide from people?
  3. Over the past couple of months, has the problem diminished your quality of life?
  4. Have you delayed pursuing any ambitions or goals because of the problem?
  5. Are you rearranging your lifestyle due to and in accommodation of the problem?

A “yes” response to any one of the above questions suggests speaking to a counselor can be helpful. Most all problems affecting how you feel are treatable with short-term non-pharmacological (no medications) talk therapy approaches.

Life Changing Therapy For All


Counseling Therapy for Depression in San Antonio

The impact of the pandemic on our mental wellness has been far reaching with a recent study from the COVID States Project determining almost half (49%) of the respondents of the study reporting one or more symptoms of depression. Even those of us who have not experienced a severe loss of someone we know, we have endured months of changes in our jobs and work, canceled family celebrations, isolation and daily logistical challenges. It should not be surprising that so many of us are feeling lonely, vulnerable, frustrated and depleted financially, physically, and emotionally.


Stress Management Counseling in San Antonio

Stress is our body’s natural defense against threat and danger, causing the body to flood with hormones preparing it to escape or confront the threat or danger. Some commonly refer to stress as the fight-or-flight mechanism of the body. Stress is so pervasive in our everyday lives it would be the rare exception to find a person who could not relate to feeling overwhelmed at some point. Though all of us experience stress, we’re affected by stress in different ways. One of the major concerns when it comes to stress is how it limits your ability to do the things you love, be a productive member of society, or simply get out of bed in the morning. All too often people ignore the warning signs of stress and fail to take action until the stress reaches the boiling or burnout point and health suffers or something serious happens, like a stroke or heart attack – forcing a slow down. Others maintain the grind and power through only to realize later they’ve lost the important things they were enduring the stress for in the first place: their relationship with their children, their partner, their ability to unwind and enjoy life.


Marriage Counseling in San Antonio

The research and data reflect themes centered on communication, togetherness, space, shared responsibilities, support networks, and quality time. In sum, the pandemic largely magnified marriage problems that were pre-existing in a couple’s relationship. Having said this, people also took proactive steps to save their marriage which included honest communication, rediscovering individual interests, not starting conversations with blame, validating your partner, and seeing a marriage counselor – so if you’re reading this, you’ve come to the right place.

Free Discovery Call to Talk with a Counselor

Take the first step in your wellness journey and book a free 10-20 minute discovery call with a Counselor. The Counselor will start off the call with a few questions to get to know you better, so they can make sure they’re qualified to meet your needs. This includes questions about why you’re considering counseling, how you’ve been feeling over the past few weeks, and your goals for counseling.

If possible, take a few minutes before the call to reflect on these topics, so you can have a clearer sense of your goals for counseling. But don’t worry, if you can’t verbalize the answer to any questions, our counselors know how to guide your thinking so you can figure out what to say and the Counselor will welcome you to ask questions about counseling and Rhapsody.

What They’re Saying About Us?

4.9 Average Rating

I just wanted to say thank you. You have helped me through so much and got me from rock bottom to where I am today. I couldn't have made it without you. Unlike my therapist before you, you didn't coddle me. You called me out on my shenanigans and helped me correct them.


Mrs. Blackman,
I know I was rude in the beginning and I'm sorry. I just want to let you know how grateful I am to have had you as my therapist. Thank you so much for being with me throughout this hectic journey.
P.S. You better not forget me!


Thank you for your guidance and support over these last couple months. I hope to connect again.

Counseling, an investment in self!


A common misconception about counseling is that it’s only for people with “serious issues” when the reality is people just like you turn to counseling to improve themselves as a person. Here are 4 signs that you may benefit from counseling:

Feeling stuck

Are you at some sort of a crossroad & having a tough time making a decision? Counseling is a safe space to talk about anything and develop helpful skills and tools to move forward.

You want to improve your relationships

Whether you want to improve relations with your partner, family, or yourself, our counselors can help you build and nourish stronger relationships founded on clear communication, love and respect.

You want to understand yourself better

Everybody experiences frustration, confusion, dissatisfaction, and feeling overwhelmed at times. It’s when these feelings become persistent and distract us that it’s problematic. In counseling you can learn how to identify your personal triggers, process, and cope with moments of anxiety, depression, anger, grief or anything that you’re feeling.

You actually don’t need a sign

Since counseling is a non-judgmental space focused on growth where you receive validation and support, many people use counseling as a space to set new goals for themselves.
