Options Counseling

Options counseling is a person-centered, interactive and decision-support process. The main purpose is to help individuals identify and understand their needs.

Counselors help individuals consider a range of possibilities when making a decision about long-term services and support and encourage planning for future needs.

Options Counseling involves building relationships with individuals and helping them to identify their goals and preferences and weigh the pros and cons of their options. This occurs through in-person meetings, possible conversations with family members, and follow-up. Call 336-242-2290 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
