Spanish-Speaking Counseling

Every day, individuals, couples and families make important decisions about their mental, emotional and spiritual health. Sometimes, optimal health and harmony are best achieved with caring guidance from trained therapists and counselors.

At Polaris Counseling, we understand how personal dilemmas and mental health issues can interfere with daily living. That is why we commit ourselves to helping you or your loved ones achieve steady progress toward greater serenity and stability at a reasonable cost. Our mental health counselors help people address, understand and overcome their mental health issues in one-one-one, couples or group therapy.

We also recognize that mental health issues do not discriminate: They can affect any person anytime anywhere. Our team of mental health counselors includes a Spanish-speaking therapist who can support those for whom English is not their first language.

Our licensed Spanish-speaking mental health counselor provides attentive, confidential, unbiased assistance to individuals, couples and families who might be contending with:

  • stress
  • anger management
  • anxiety
  • hyperactivity or obsession-compulsion
  • depression
  • faith and spirituality
  • behavioral problems
  • troubled marriage or relationship
  • addiction
  • poor sleep or insomnia
  • low self-esteem
  • I-601 immigration hardship waiver

We accept most major insurance plans. For those without medical coverage, we offer income-based counseling fees. In addition, our Spanish-speaking mental health counselor can adjust to your schedule through day, evening or weekend sessions. Most initial appointments also can be scheduled within 24 hours.

For more than 15 years, we have been helping thousands of people, couples and families reach their potential for a peaceful and fulfilling life. If you’re struggling, there is hope and we can help! Our Spanish-speaking therapist is here whenever you or a loved one is ready to move toward positive change.

According to a large October 2014 study by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, depression

and anxiety may be undertreated among U.S. Hispanics and Latinos, especially if they do not have insurance. It also revealed that 27% of Hispanics/Latinos reported high levels of depressive symptoms, but only 5% used anti-depressant medication.

In a separate article published online, Mental Health America cites a 2014 American Psychiatric Association fact sheet noting that 36% of Hispanics with depression received treatment for it as opposed to 60% of non-Hispanic whites. The fact sheet also suggested that bilingual patients are assessed differently when evaluated in English versus Spanish, and Hispanics are more often undertreated for mental health than are non-Hispanic whites.
