Our Approach 

 

Grounded in a pastoral counseling model, we strive to integrate spirituality and sound psychotherapeutic principles. Our distinct differences lie in our theologically-informed understanding of your suffering and the processes underlying change. We appreciate the incomparable value of a mature spirituality in promoting healing.

Similarly, we take a positive and holistic view of your concerns, in contrast to the strict medical model that often reduces you to a list of "symptoms." Other distinguishing features include our commitment to the historically underserved and the emphasis that we place on measuring outcomes.

We are committed to providing a safe space marked by warmth, respect, compassion, and understanding. These qualities cultivate an atmosphere that facilitates healing. In addition to sessions, we offer complementary resources that support this pastoral counseling approach. These resources include reading material, workshops, small groups, online resources, etc.
