What would your life look like 3 months from now, 6 months from now, 1 year from now if you start today?

Counseling is an opportunity for personal growth in multiple areas. With information and support, life goals can be developed and achieved; anxiety, depression and poor coping skills such as substance abuse can be replaced with an ability to balance life challenges; live a life on life’s terms. We focus on moving forward and developing a new lifestyle.

Mental Health Counseling and Support

Life can be messy. We find ourselves filled with fear, worrying about everything. We lose track of time, putting our dreams of a better life on hold. Stress and frustration lead to anger and depression. Sometimes our choices lead to unhealthy lifestyles. Our relationships are not fulfilling. We feel stuck.

Individual counseling sessions are tailored to develop your vision of success. In solution brief focused therapy, you are the expert. Sessions are focused on moving forward, goal achievement within a time frame of your choosing. From plan development, implementation and practice, revision when needed, to follow through, counselors assist with accountability and encouragement.

Substance Use and Abuse

Society is quick to encourage us to drink and drug in order to have fun. Movies, commercials, magazines, and our heroes in music, film and sports support this fantasy. We follow the herd and it becomes a way of life difficult to change. For many wanting to give it up is not as simple as merely stopping. We may fail time and time again. We have hurt our loved ones and ourselves; became personally familiar with the legal system; are now underemployed or unemployable; and now believe we can never dig ourselves out from under the wreckage.

Outpatient Substance Abuse

Outpatient programs support change while working around your busy schedule. Sessions average 90 minutes with commitment to attend once or twice a week. What abuse and addiction are, the science of addiction, developing skills to repair the damage and avoid future damage, discovering new avenues to handle problems, and developing a new lifestyle are covered in small group sessions. Individual work with your counselor focuses on goals you create.

New habits take time and practice. Programs can be designed from 90 days to 6 months depending on goal progression. Counselors and staff are here to support you every step of the way.

Extended Outpatient programs can be helpful for those returning from residential program and have limitations on their schedule preventing participation in an intensive outpatient program. Regaining structure in your daily activities, putting skills into practice and focusing on getting started on your new lifestyle is the focus. Sessions are offered three times a week for no less than 180 minutes. Saturday and Sunday afternoon hours are convenient for reinforcing the need for structure in early recovery.
