What is Counseling?

Our counselors see counseling as a process in which the client and the counselor grow in understanding and trust with one another.  They work together as a team to explore and define the clients’ present situation.  The counselor will then help the client develop goals for an improved wholistic life.  They work toward those goals in a systemic fashion.

Because our counselors approach counseling in a wholistic manner, we believe all 5 basic areas of life (thoughts, emotions, physical bodies, relationships, and spirituality) impact the overall psychological health of each individual. We strive to help clients become more balanced in each one of these areas so that total well-being is nurtured.

We primarily use cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT) which suggests that patterns of thoughts and actions are explored in order to better understand the client’s problems and develop solutions. Even though CBT is our primary theory of choice, we may also use other theories to enhance the counseling process. Other theories of choice are family systems theory, emotion-focused therapy, attachment theory, and solution-focused therapy.

We work from a variety of formats including individual, couples, and family counseling.  Our counselors also offer seminars such as marriage enrichment, parent enrichment, and premarital counseling.
