We work with clients from all backgrounds. We Focus On Solutions: We help you set goals, make changes, and grow rather than getting stuck in endless discussions about “the problem.” We are confident in the power of God’s word to bring about positive changes in your life and relationships. Brief Therapy Model: Counseling is often a short term process which leads to long term results. Our goal is to provide you with efficient but thorough counseling that will effectively meet your needs and the needs of your family.
