Hope, Help and Healing
Therapy (or counseling) brings clients a new outlook on life, giving individuals and families a new beginning, as they move forward in a healthy way. In that way, we hope all counseling provides hope, help, and healing.
Taking the first step toward counseling is an out-of-comfort-zone request for many people, but is often a healthy recognition that we cannot always do everything on our own.
At Covenant Counseling, a client’s first session with a therapist typically includes meeting one another and discussing the client’s focus of therapy, going over aspects related to confidentiality, clarifying what needs may be present, and developing initial goals for the work ahead.
Broadly speaking (as each client is unique), at each session following, the therapist works to provide an environment for safe, caring exploration, to address the identified needs or issues. The therapist works to design a series of discussions and engagements that facilitate the desired change.
Our counselors are licensed professionals, ably equipped to provide competent professional care. As Christians, we are also prepared to accompany clients in matters of faith and life.
