Types of Counseling

Individual Counseling

A variety of concerns and stressors bring clients to us for individual counseling. Regardless of what leads you to consider individual counseling, each of our trained clinicians is equipped to help you identify your goals, gain needed insights, and take action in the areas you are ready to change to bring about the growth and healing you desire. 

Marriage & Couples Counseling

All relationships go through seasons of difficulty, whether yours is doing well and just looking for a tune-up or feeling deeply painful and needing help right now, we have clinicians specifically trained in couples counseling who are ready to help you understand your relationship dynamics and take the steps needed to help you to reach your relationship goals.

Family Counseling

All problems occur within a specific context and have multiple forces influencing their development and maintenance. Sometimes it is important to have the whole family present for and included in the counseling process to create lasting change. Our clinicians that work with families understand those dynamics and are trained to help generate change in your whole family system as everyone works together toward growth and healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is therapy?

It is always our goal to work ourselves out of a job by empowering you to do the work and learn the skills you need to graduate from counseling. We recognize that sometimes it takes a significant amount of time to address the root causes of current issues.

We want you to know that we are willing to work with you as long as it takes to meet your goals and help you achieve genuine holistic health. The specific amount of time that requires varies greatly by the client, ranging anywhere from 6-8 weeks to 1-2 years. You can discuss with your counselor any thoughts or concerns you have about the length of therapy, knowing that we are always focused on helping you progress toward your goals as efficiently as possible.

How is Christian counseling different than secular counseling?

Christian counseling is less about what we do and more about who we are. As Christian counselors, we hold to the Biblical scripture as our standard of truth. Because we believe that “all truth is God’s truth,” we seek to find ways that science agrees with those scriptures, employing a wide variety of “secular” counseling theories and techniques without deviating from our Christian worldview in how we use them. We believe that spirituality is a part of everyone’s holistic care, and we honor each client we are invited to work with. Therefore, clients from all spiritual backgrounds are welcome at Restoration.
