Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, our focus is to resolve the issues that bring you to counseling and to help you establish or re-establish your life as a thriving-nurturing process. The first step is to help you identify the goals you seek to accomplish. Then, using powerful yet gentle methods, our counseling acts to enliven and release the forces of positive growth already present within you. You work to fulfill your goals, grow beyond negative patterns from the past, and to become empowered to move forward with freedom in your life. Our therapists are highly trained to help you resolve all life, college, career, family, and relationship difficulties or transitions.


Marital /Relationship Counseling

Everyone knows that having good communication is vital to your relationship. Since statistics show that over 60 percent of marriages end in divorce, one reason may be that many couples don’t seek relationship counseling until it’s too late. Most of us realize that getting rid of your partner does not get rid of the problems because half of the problem is yours. You can walk out of your marriage, but you can’t run away from yourself — no matter how hard you try. One of the biggest challenges for most couples is learning how to stop blaming each other so they can work through the troubled times without the power struggles. Relationship counseling offers a safe haven for couples to express their needs and fears and effectively resolve anger and conflict.


Group Therapy

Which is better, group counseling or individual counseling? There is no right answer because this is dependent on the person and their situation. Sometimes one or the other form of counseling is best, but there are times when combining the two will be more beneficial. Group counseling has proven to be very valuable among teenagers, and individual stuck in the grief process. Group counseling have also been beneficial to group members who need the input from others who have experienced the same or similar situation. 


Family Therapy

Some families have situations which throw them off their feet, while other families have experienced major problems which keep them from having the happy, healthy family they want. Some families come into counseling to prevent a problem from occurring and others come in to correct a problem from the past. Family therapy brings family members together to solve their shared problems. It is based on the belief that families are the single most powerful resources available to individuals attempting to cope successfully with major issues or even those caused by society. By allowing families to harness and strengthen existing resources, and by helping family members work collaboratively toward inventive solutions to tough problems, family therapy has proven to be of great benefit to people at times of major life stress.


Pre-marital Counseling

Pre-marital counseling can strengthen a relationship especially for couples at risk. As divorce rates continue to rise in the United States, more and more couples are approaching marriage with increasing caution. While Americans are still opting for marriage, many are looking for opportunities to damage-proof their relationships before they say “I do.” Pre-marital counseling is just one approach couples are taking.


Children's Therapy

Children are not small adults. They do not respond to their emotions and thoughts in the same way an adult may. Developmentally children are very concrete in which they see situations as black or white, good or bad, and right or wrong. It can be very confusing as a parent to try to understand the unique challenges your children may face.  All children will act out because their needs are not being met at that particular time and they don’t have the words or concepts to describe how they are feeling.  Let one of our therapist help you to help your child to develop coping strategies, be successful at school and prevent small problems from becoming larger ones in the future.   


Adolescent Therapy

Developmentally, puberty is accompanied by major physical and emotional changes that alter a young person’s relationships and patterns of interaction with others. Their brains are changing with an explosion and expulsion of neurons which affect’s an adolescent’s judgment, communication, empathy, emotional stability, and perception of social cues.  The transition into adolescence begins the move toward independence from parents and the need to establish one’s own values, personal and sexual identity, as well as gaining the skills and competencies needed to be successful in adulthood. Adapting to all of these changes in relationships, social contexts, status, and performance criteria can generate tremendous stress, feelings of rejection and anger at perceived or real failure. Sometimes teens need extra support in addition to a good relationship with their parents to help them successfully transition through adolescence.


Faith & Spiritual Counseling

Helping people of faith enhance knowledge and begin to practice some of the basic disciplines of a spiritual life can be life altering. The spiritual practices incorporated include: purify motivation, cultivate emotional wisdom, live ethically, develop a peaceful mind, cultivate spiritual intelligence, andrecognizing the sacred in all and serving others. These spiritual practices are explored through different techniques and exercises  to enhances you quality of life.
