How Therapy Works

At SLC, we believe that you are the expert on your own life.  Therefore, the job of the therapist is not to try and read your mind, to “fix” anything, or list all the possible “solutions” that you have already tried.  Rather, the job of the therapist is to offer an outside perspective on your life, to implement effective and established therapeutic methods to give you the keys to unlock the freedom and fulfillment you desire for your life.

Often times, your true self, who God created you to be, can get overshadowed by hurts from others, hidden for protection, or never given the chance to emerge at all.  As you and your therapist get to know each other, he/she may implement any number of therapy types such as cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, intergenerational therapy, or others in order to offer you the fresh perspective, support, and guidance you need in order to fill in the gap between who you are and who you were created to be.

The therapists at Spring Life Counseling, LLC believe in a holistic approach to therapy, including social, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects.  In order for an individual to enjoy a healthy, balanced life, he/she needs to be connected with themselves, with God, and with significant others around them.  Finding ways to strengthen these areas of connection is essential to achieving health and balance in one’s life.

Typical issues with which our clients present include anxiety, depression, anger control, childhood or sexual trauma, difficulties in obtaining or sustaining close relationships, marital conflicts or infidelity, blended family difficulties, spiritual development, stage of life transitions, or general self-improvement.

All of our therapists operate from a distinctively Christian perspective both in their personal lives and in the therapeutic environment.  It is important to note that our therapists always seek to respect the comfort level of each client in regards to the degree that spirituality and Christian counseling principles are utilized.

Starting the Therapy Journey Well

We know that the decision to enter into counseling is not taken lightly.  There are several factors to consider.  Having a good connection with your therapist can make all the difference in the success of counseling.  Research indicates the quality of the therapeutic connection between counselor and client is a leading factor in positive therapeutic outcomes.

Because the therapeutic connection is chiefly important to the therapy process, if you feel for any reason, you would be more comfortable with a different therapist, your counselor will work with you to find a therapist who better meets your needs.  We genuinely want to see you establish an outstanding therapeutic relationship with your clinician, so that you can have the best experience possible in counseling.

No one can guarantee a positive outcome in therapy, but having good rapport with your counselor goes a long way in starting you towards that goal. After all, most positive change in our lives occurs within the context of positive relationships, right?  Therapy is no different.

In addition to seeking a genuine connection with clients, SLC counselors are selected for their advanced training in several of today’s leading therapeutic models which are proven to best equip clients in achieving lasting change.

It is this specific blend of compassionate, empowering connection and commitment to excellence in education that truly sets the counselors at Spring Life Counseling, LLC apart from the rest.
