Welcome to our Site


        We at Mandarin Counseling of Jacksonville,  are dedicated professionals committed to providing quality mental health services. It is our overall goal to enhance the quality of life for individuals, couples and families. Our belief is that all people are valuable and unique and should be treated with dignity and respect. While recognizing the potential for change, an assessment of the client’ emotional, physical, spiritual and life experience is provided in a caring environment. We believe that our physical and emotional selves are directly linked, and thereby affect each other in both negative and positive ways. Therefore, emotional pain is our body and mind’s way of letting us know that something needs our attention. If we choose to accept responsibility for our health in this way, we will be aiding ourselves toward our natural drive for wellness.


What is counseling?
Counseling can take place in all kinds of relationships: anytime one person helps another to understand and solve a life problem. However, professional counseling involves obtaining help from someone trained in providing help. Counseling promotes growth and helps you to:
  • Express your feelings in a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental atmosphere.
  • Identify and sort out your problems.
  • Identify longstanding patterns of behavior that keep you from solving your problems and developing new ways to look at them.
  • Improve your coping skills.
  • Identify and achieve your goals.
Counselors can help you recognize your internal worth and examine the way you see yourself. They also help you examine old behavior you may have learned in your family.

When is it time to seek counseling?

No one answer is right for everyone, but if you are experiencing some of the following feelings, then counseling might help:
    • You feel as if you can’t do it alone.
    • You feel trapped and as if there’s nowhere to turn.
    • You worry all the time and never seem to find solutions to your problems.
    • Your feelings are affecting your sleep, eating, job and relationships
    • You have tried to change, but things are not getting better.
