Do you provide therapy for children?

We offer therapy to children from 5 to 17 years old. Ages 5-13 must first go through an intake review by our therapists or medical director. The clinical staff will then assess if the child is appropriate or not for services with our agency. If we assess that the child's needs would be better served elsewhere, we will provide referrals.

Do I need to be married to see a Marriage and Family Therapist?

No. Individuals often seek help with behavioral relationship issues, mental health, and emotional disorders. Family therapists provide the same services as other mental health professionals.

Can you do family therapy with only one person?

Yes. Family therapy is effective with just one individual or with couples or families.

How is Christian Counseling similar to or different from secular counseling?

The therapy per se is no different. We are still working on the issues that a client brings in, however, the common theology and ability to pray and read the Bible increase the trust level and enhance the therapy for those who want and need this piece. The atmosphere within the Center is one in which we desire to be used as instruments of God's compassion and grace. It is our hope all who are served here experience God's compassion and grace. It is our hope all who are served here experience God's love and acceptance through their therapist regardless of their beliefs. This is what makes Christian Counseling different from secular counseling.
