Our counseling staff works with children, adolescents and adults struggling with issues such as codependency, stress-related symptoms and illness, attention problems, trauma, anxiety and depression. Clients are guided through experiential processes to recognize and change the negative thought patterns and limiting self-beliefs at the root of their emotional, mental and physical difficulties. The goal for our clients is to ultimately feel more fulfilled and connected, free from the struggles that have created a sense of imbalance and impeded their well-being. Experience shows us that working to heal the entire person at the mind, body, and soul levels leads to significant symptom reduction and long-term benefits. Neuroscience research indicates that the use of psycho-spiritual-based therapies is effective in facilitating natural positive changes in the brain structures associated with emotional functioning, thus reducing dependence on medications for symptom relief and supporting significant healthy life changes and feelings of wholeness and balance. Counselors work with clients individually, lead guided group meditations, and offer classes and workshops rooted in a psycho-spiritual approach to maintaining wellness. Recognizing the significance of attending to their own personal growth and well-being as it relates to expanding their professional practice and the depth of services they are able to offer clients, our counselors participate in continuing education based in a "teach the teacher, heal the healer" model. This model maintains that we learn to help others heal and grow by immersion in our own healing and growth processes.
We currently have a counseling intern on staff who emphasizes an integrated approach that utilizes a combination of client-centered and cognitive behavioral approaches. She is able to offer access to quality mental health services that would otherwise be unavailable due to financial constraints.
