Thanks for your interest in our practice! We are a team of counselors who love Jesus and specialize in a wide variety of therapies. Our goal is to be a safe place to restore your mind, body, and spirit. Our staff can support you through individual, group, couples, or family counseling. We have specialists in trauma and abuse; anxiety and depression; addiction; neurological differences including ADHD and autism; eating disorders and physical health journeys; pregnancy, post-partum depression, or abortion aftermath; schizophrenia; pornography and sexual deviance; and many other areas- just ask!
We can walk with you in premarital counseling to process through many areas that will build a foundation for a healthy marriage, or work with you if your current marriage could use support.
We offer online classes for the purpose of court or career required psychoeducation. These courses are in anger management and emotion regulation, substance abuse and relapse prevention, domestic violence and healthy relationships, and parenting.
Currently on staff, we have 3 clinicians who are exceptional in working with kids- any of the above listed topics, as well as divorce or other family changes, adoption and foster care, you name it!
Our modalities include: cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), play therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP), Logotherapy, rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), motivational interviewing (MI), acceptance-commitment therapy (ACT), and of course, bible based counseling. All of our strategies are rooted in biblical truths, but do not have to be explicitly faith-based if that is not desired by the client.
We have offices in Mesa, Gilbert, and Phoenix
