Counseling


You are a unique individual composed of mind, body, and spirit. You are created for more than survival.
You are created for relationship and joy.

Living in a broken world, you find yourself facing various hurts and struggles. Through a trusting relationship with a compassionate counselor, you can heal and be restored to the fullness of life you were designed to enjoy. We can identify your needs and develop a plan that is right for you by combining professional counseling tools with a compassionate, Biblically integrated philosophy. We are a gospel-centered, professional counseling ministry offering low-cost, confidential counseling.

Grounded in truth. Motivated by love. Empowered by the Spirit.

Children (0-12)

There are many types of therapy for children. We are eclectic in our approach interweaving various evidence-based modalities to provide the unique approach each child needs to heal. We allow children to “work through” their problems through the play itself or it can serve as a catalyst for meaningful dialogue between the child and therapist. The therapies we offer for children include: - Play Therapy - Sandtray Therapy - EMDR - Attachment Therapy - Trauma Therapy - TBRI® Trust Based Relational Intervention. You can read more about these in the "Therapy Tools" section.

Adolescents (13-19)

Adolescence is a challenging and exciting season of development. The experiences of childhood begin to surface and the transition to adulthood can produce distress for both parent and child. Therapy with teens is a collaborative endeavor that includes parents and the therapist. Through a trusting relationship, a trained counselor can support you and your teen through the steps of healing and growth. The therapies we offer for adolescents include Sandtray, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Attachment and/or Trauma Focused Therapy and TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Intervention). You can read more about these in the "Therapy Tools" section.

Adults (Men & Women)

Individual adults come to counseling for different reasons. Some have experienced significant trauma or serious mental health struggles. Others just have a sense that life could be different and a hope that they could experience more peace. Some adults choose to come to counseling because they want support in setting goals and direction for the future or transitioning between life situations. Whatever you are facing, you don’t have to face it alone. Taking the first step to reach out and receive help is the best decision you can make for yourself and your future. Through a trusting relationship with a compassionate, trained, professional, change can happen. Healing and growth are available and we are ready to walk that journey with you. Some of the therapies we offer for adults include CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Emotion-Focused Therapy, Attachment/trauma-focused therapy, mindfulness practice, Sandtray, and inner healing (Christian tools of prayer and meditation). You can find out more about these in the "Therapy Tools" section.

Family

Family therapy refers to couples and parents. We have therapists trained in Prepare-Enrich for Couples, TBRI, and PCIT for parents. The family is a system and each person influences the system. The relationship between husband and wife is the foundation for the family system. The relationship between parents and children sets the developmental trajectory of the children.

Groups

Groups are coming soon! We will offer two types of groups: Healing Groups, which will benefit higher level therapeutic needs such as - recovery from divorce - healing from abuse - overcoming depression and anxiety. Growth Groups lead to improved relationships and quality of life. They can include support groups and education groups on topics of marriage, parenting, and caring for special needs family members.

Therapy Tools

Play Therapy:
There are many types of therapy for children. We are eclectic in our approach interweaving various evidence-based modalities to provide the unique approach each child needs to heal.

SANDTRAY THERAPY:
Sandtray Therapy allows a person to construct his or her own story using miniature figures and sand. The story created can be a reflection of the person’s own life and allows them to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self.
 
EMDR:
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference
