Life can be challenging at times. Consider individual counseling to help construct a platform to help make positive changes in your life. With the help of a licensed counselor, you may be able to accomplish things that you’ve never thought were possible before.

Couples Counseling

Couples therapy focuses on the problems existing in the relationship between two people. Counseling helps couples understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Restoration Counseling believes that individuals were created for connection.  Couples counseling can help individuals have authentic relationships and achieve real connection as well as emotional intimacy. Couples therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, and problem solve. Additionally, Restoration Counseling works with couples dealing with infidelity and sexual addiction.

Individual Counseling

Each counselor approaches therapy a bit differently, however, our goal is to consider the biopsychosocial dynamics in an individual’s life.  This approach examines the biological, psychological, as well as social aspects of one’s current situation and history.  It’s necessary to understand a client’s world view and explore the difficulties, conflicts, and pain they experience.  Each of our counselors takes the time to get to know each individual and their history, personality, and current situations. In general, individuals are seen on a weekly basis for 50 minute sessions.

Family Counseling

Family therapy offers a way to view clinical problems within the context of a family. The goal of family counseling is to help family members improve communication, solve family problems, and understand and handle special family situations. It is not uncommon to implement both individual and family therapy to achieve optimal goals for an individual. We also offer specialized help for Blended Families.

Overcoming Anxiety – Teen Counseling Group for Girls (ages 14-17)

Anxiety can be very overwhelming!
