Frequently   Asked   Questions 

What's the difference between counseling and therapy?

Counselors and therapists often provide a very similar form of treatment; however, they may have different ways of approaching therapeutic intervention or conceptualizing treatment. Essentially, the difference comes down to specific training and technical approach. Marital and Family Therapists (MFT's) are trained in a system's approach, which means that they take into account the client's broader systems of influence (environment, family, culture, SES, trauma, etc.) with regards to how they think about treatment.

Are in-person sessions being offered during the pandemic?

In person services are currently being offered; however, the safety of our clients is of utmost importance to us. In the event that the Delta variant creates conditions that put our clients at risk, in person services may be transitioned back to telehealth.

Do you provide emdr therapy?

Yes, we offer EMDR therapy! EMDR is a powerful treatment approach that creates the conditions for your brain to heal in its own natural, adaptive ways. The goal is to reprocess information that has been stored in the brain and body in ways that are no longer helpful for your current context, whether that may be in regards to trauma, phobias, depression, anxiety, or other challenges. Contact us for a free consultation!

Do you provide Christian therapy?

Yes, we can definitely integrate faith into the clinical work that is done within the client's healing journey. Because licensed clinicians are held to an ethical code, all faithful and spiritual integration must be consented to by the client and is generally brought into session as a resource. It is beyond the scope of practice of your therapist to offer faithful advice, suggestions, interpretations, or guidance, and such needs will be referred to your spiritual leader.
