Counseling Services

Our Counseling Services share a central focus on therapeutic services in order to treat current mental health and substance use issues, manage chronic illnesses, and intervene earlier to limit occurrences through education and prevention services.

Our Mental Health Counseling services provide professional therapy for individuals, couples, and families. Services may address concerns of conduct, identity, mood, anxiety, affect, impulse control, addictive, or other behavioral concerns; other mental or emotional conditions; and adjustments to transitions in the family life cycle.

Our Prevention services consist of community outreach and educational activities that aim to reduce the need for intervention and treatment. The goals of these services are to promote youth development, reduce risk-taking behaviors, build assets and resilience, and, ultimately, prevent problem behaviors throughout the life span.

• Anxiety
• Behavior problems
• Depression
• Emotional Instability
• Family relationship problems
• Impulsivity
• Peer relationship problems
• Self-harming thoughts/behaviors
