Our Core Values
We believe that you deserve a therapist who is not only professional and expertly trained but one who is also motivated by a genuine desire to help you. Selecting the right therapist is critical, and we have done all we can to make that process as easy for you as possible. Our therapists have many different specialties, but as a whole, in short, we believe in saving marriages, in restoring relationships, in individual dignity and the equal value of all people no matter who you are, in personal wellness, in forgiveness, in personal responsibility, in healing people so that they no longer need counseling (and sometimes even medication), and in safe, non-judgmental therapy.
Values-based counseling means that the counselor is always pointing to a better way, meeting the client where he or she is at, and guiding that person towards a higher place: a place of deeper truth, a place of greater meaning. Non-values-oriented counseling will simply seek to return the client to a functional level, or simply at a place that is best for them.
While we believe that all people have the capacity within them to change, that does not mean they can always see all the choices before them. Sometimes people are so heavily oppressed by their situation that they genuinely cannot see a way out, or are unable to discern the best possible path. This is where the values of the counselor are critical to effective therapy.
