Therapy is provided to individuals, couples, or families, and is offered for children, adolescents, adults and older adults. Sessions typically last 45 minutes, but arrangements can be made for sessions of 60 or 30 minutes, based on individual circumstances. Counseling services can be accessed in several ways:

 

  • Face to face counseling- takes place in the office, with the counselor and therapist together. This is the style of counseling that is the most traditional, and is the most familiar to people.

 

  • Distance counseling- takes place through use of the internet or telephone. When using the internet, sessions can take place using video conferencing, IM chat, or email.

 

  • Mobile therapy- the therapist visits the home of the individual who wishes to access counseling services. This form of therapy is used primarily to overcome obstacles that would prevent the individual from accessing services, such as physical mobility, child care, or transportation issues.

 

  • Pre-session consultation- this is offered for individuals who are interested in finding out more about counseling, but are not yet sure if they are ready to commit to beginning sessions. It is a one-time meeting between the therapist and client, used to explore options and learn what to expect from counseling.

 

  • Clinical supervision- is offered for counselors seeking licensure as LPC. Meetings can be arranged on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis as needed.

  • Adventure Based Counseling- broadening the benefits of the counseling experience by going into the outdoors for group activites that develop self-esteem, self-confidence, and build trust
