See Your Thoughts From a Different Perspective
We can help you untangle years of confusion and turmoil.
Like leaves on a tree, no two people are alike. Integrity Counseling believes that people should be approached uniquely to meet their individual needs as they journey through life. Whether it be the trauma that occurred years ago that still keeps you up at night, a difficult relationship, or other emotional stressor, Integrity Counseling can help you overcome the hurdles of daily living and achieve the best that life has to offer.
Services will be tailored to your individual needs and life situation. This could include a combination of the following services offered by Integrity Counseling.
These typically last between 45 and 50 minutes. The primary focus of treatment is you, processing situations, life events, receiving feedback.
These sessions involve you and your family unit, often discussing family conflict and issues that impact one or all family members. There will be times that the therapist will meet with subsets of the family to work on specific issues, for example, just the children of the family, a mother and daughter, or other units.
From time to time, Integrity Counseling will offer group sessions for people who have similar issues. The benefit here is to learn a skill set from others and in knowing that you’re not alone. Your counselor may mention this type of service to you.
Support groups are meetings with other people who are experiencing similar issues. Most people have heard of support group formats with meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Support groups are often peer led and are intended for participants to have a support structure outside of therapy.
Integrity Counseling will be offering support groups in the coming months, for most up-to-date announcements, please follow us on social media or contact the office.
