Living Hope Counseling Center provides individual outpatient psychotherapy.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is more than learning coping skills and looking for a "quick fix". Psychotherapy is a team effort, where you and your therapist work together to process your feelings, connect to your emotions, and explore current and past events that contribute to your mental wellness. Psychotherapy is most effective when you have an open and trusting relationship with your therapist. Your therapist's job is to come along side you in a safe and positive environment to support you, encourage you, and challenge you, rather than make decisions for you or give advice. True psychotherapy can be expected to take 6+ months, depending on the individuals level of commitment and presenting concerns at hand.

At Living Hope Counseling Center, our therapists utilize an integrative therapy approach. This means that your therapist will combine a variety of different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the specific needs of the individual client. While many approaches and tools will be utilized based on your presenting concerns, below you will find an outline of approaches we most frequently pull from.
HUMANISTIC AND PERSON-CENTERED THERAPY
Humanistic Therapy looks at the person as a whole and focuses on a person's individual nature. It takes a persons traits, behaviors, and instincts to help them find wisdom, growth, and fulfillment within themselves. In Person-Centered Therapy the therapist works to understand the client's experience. The therapist will try and reconnect the client with their inner values and self-worth.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR THERAPY
Cognitive Behavior Therapy modifies negative and irrational thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. CBT takes harmful and negative thoughts and challenges the client to overcome them by reframing them or looking at them in a different light that is more realistic.
