Types of 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.
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.

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.
