Beachside Counseling

About Beachside Counseling
Just as family physicians help people who are physically ill or injured, Beachside Counseling has professionals that help people overcome emotional, mental or behavioral problems that can interfere with everyday life. Getting help with an emotional problem is a wise step. Not only do clients benefit from the counseling services they receive, so do those closest to them– family members, friends, co-workers.

Our Philosophy
Beachside Counseling is committed to quality mental health and substance abuse care for all clients. The Center’s purpose is to aid in the prevention and alleviation of alcohol, drug abuse, and mental health problems and to provide psychological and psychiatric treatment, evaluation, education, consultation, and related services in an outpatient setting.

Confidentiality

The services you receive from Beachside Counseling are protected by both state and federal laws concerning confidentiality. Your request for assistance and any information that may be shared is between you and your therapist. In general, information from Beachside Counseling may be released only with your prior written permission.
