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?
As Christian counselors, we take seriously the Bible as the standard of truth and seek to have the worldview through which we approach the counseling process to be grounded in the story of scripture. Clients from all religious backgrounds are welcome at Restoration and respected in their beliefs. Our counselors appreciate and employ a wide variety of “secular” counseling theories and techniques without deviating from our Christian worldview in how we make use of them. We specialize in helping Christian clients work toward change in ways that connect with and as well as help grow their faith beliefs.
Where are you located?
Physical & Mailing Address: 3300 Canal Street, Suite 120, New Orleans, 70119 

While our address is based on 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 Norman C. Francis 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.
