Sometimes…

All we need is someone to help guide us back towards the path where we belong.

Christian Counseling

Christian counseling is a Christ-centered, biblically-based approach integrating the truths of the Bible including all the teachings of Scripture, but especially those that bear on one’s relationship with God and one another, and the tools of the mental health profession to assist individuals in living life in accordance with their personal faith beliefs and values.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy allows for you and your partner to meet with a counselor together. This format is designed to help couples address problems related to emotional, relational, and/or sexual intimacy. Couples therapy examines imbalances within the relationship and facilitates conversations that lead to reconciliation and greater understanding, closeness, and love.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy uses a practical approach in which the counselor helps the client examine their thoughts and beliefs and understand the relationship and influence these patterns have on their feelings and behaviors.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

An expansion of traditional cognitive behavioral therapy, this approach is most effective with clients with severe and multiple problems. Individuals with chronic suicidal behavior, who experience intense tumultuous relationships, have difficulty regulating their emotions and engage in impulsive self-harming behavior (use of drugs and/or alcohol, shoplifting, gambling, promiscuity, cutting, spending, etc.) can benefit from this evidence-based approach. Goals of therapy include acquiring skills within the following four domains: mindfulness skills, emotional regulation skills, distress tolerance skills and interpersonal effectiveness skills.

Schema Therapy

An expansion of traditional cognitive behavioral therapy, this approach places greater emphasis on exploring childhood and adolescence experiences. Innate temperament, early childhood environment and early unmet core needs will often contribute to repeated behaviors and responses (schemas, modes, schema coping styles) throughout life. This approach combines assessment measures, interview-based measures, experiential and emotion-focused approaches to change schemas and modes.
