Counseling Q&A

What is counseling?

The professional counseling offered through Ithaca Primary Care is a collaborative partnership between you and Dr. Stevanovic to solve a specific problem or issue. With his guidance, you might:

  • Identify goals and strategies to address challenges
  • Build or strengthen your self-esteem
  • Improve your overall physical and mental wellness
  • Develop coping skills and communication strategies


Several types of counseling are available at Ithaca Primary Care depending on your specific needs.

What is anxiety or depression counseling?

Anxiety and depression are different mental health disorders, but they have several similarities, and many people have them at the same time. It’s okay to experience anxiety or sadness from time to time, but when these emotions persist or begin to interfere with your life, counseling can help.

During anxiety or mental health counseling appointments, Dr. Stevanovic works with you to diagnose your disorder and develop an effective treatment strategy, which might include talk therapy, medications, and lifestyle changes, as well as coping techniques.

What is attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder counseling?

While you often hear of children with ADHD, it’s a common condition in adults as well. If you’re having problems concentrating or listening, difficulty standing still, or challenges establishing effective work habits, you might have attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

ADHD counseling with Dr. Stevanovic not only addresses your symptoms with medication, but it also introduces behavioral modifications to manage your condition.

What is weight loss counseling?

Losing weight on your own can feel impossible, especially if you’ve struggled with weight management your entire life. Working with a medical professional can help identify the unique challenges you face by not only identifying emotional or behavioral triggers but helping you develop coping strategies and lifestyle changes to manage them.

Weight loss counseling may also involve medication therapy and nutritional counseling, as well as activities and exercise recommendations.

What is smoking cessation counseling?

The highly addictive nature of nicotine makes smoking incredibly difficult to quit, but it’s important to kick the habit because of the negative impact it has on your health.

Smoking cessation counseling with Dr. Stevanovic eases you through the quitting process with medication therapy to reduce withdrawal symptoms and talk therapy to identify and overcome the triggers behind your smoking habit.
