What is the Difference Between Counseling and Therapy?

As a licensed professional counselor I provide both counseling and therapy to my clients.  The words may seem interchangeable, but there is a difference between counseling and therapy.

 

Counseling is a practical, advice-giving approach to helping you with the challenges you are facing.  Therapy goes deeper than counseling in helping you to explore the underlying causes of those challenges.  Used together, counseling and therapy offer a balanced approach  to  dealing with issues and addressing feelings.
