Counseling

​INDIVIDUAL -  The goal of counseling is to provide a safe, accepting, non-judgmental place where individuals can explore issues in confidence. A Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) or Licensed Resident in Counseling listens to the client, and respects his/her individuality and right to make decisions. The therapist and the client become a team and explore the individual’s strengths, values, fears and difficulties to address the issues that are identified as priorities. The collaborative goal will be to develop in the individual a sense of confidence and emotional well-being.
