Types of Counseling

Individual Counseling

At times life can feel overwhelming, relationships may crumble, and stress can seem unmanageable. Even more frustrating is the feeling of hopelessness that may come when no one seems to understand what you are going through. At Restoration you will have someone who is working with you to help you overcome these trials and stressors that lead to feeling overwhelmed, alone, and/or stuck.

Marriage & Couples Counseling

Couples and marriage counseling follows a path beginning with assessment of the strengths and growth areas of the relationship and ending with meeting the joint goals of the couple and therapist. In the middle, the couple will work to better understand their partner, rebuild trust, and learn healthy skills to create and maintain healthy communication (connecting mentally, emotionally, spiritually, socially, and physically) and forgiveness.

Family Counseling

Every family faces challenges and some families find themselves stuck, unable to move past these situations on their own. Our desire is to help families work through these challenges and view them as growth opportunities. More information can be found under the “Types of Counseling” menu.

How is Christian counseling different than secular counseling?

In a nutshell, Biblically based counseling uses the Bible as the standard of Truth.  While secular theories seek to make an individual happy via self fulfillment, we believe true peace and joy cannot be found apart from a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Where are you located?

Physical & Mailing Address: 3300 Canal Street, Suite 120, New Orleans, 70119 

While our address is based off of Canal Street, the door to our suite actually faces South Rendon Street.  S. Rendon is a one-way street; therefore, you will have to enter S. Rendon from Canal Street.  From Canal Street you will see a two story building with white brick and blue shutters.  The building is almost directly across from a Whitney Bank and we are a block away from the Jefferson Davis Parkway and Canal Street intersection.  There is a small parking lot you can access from S. Rendon Street.  If, you cannot find a spot in the parking lot, then you will need to park on the side of the road.  As always, please call 504-913-5039 if you have any questions.
