Individual Therapy is an opportunity to meet with a therapist one-on-one within a safe and confidential environment to examine issues within the privacy of a therapeutic session. Individual counseling provides “therapeutic intimacy” to discuss relationship issues, childhood issues, and feelings of depression, or anxiety. We will learn healthier coping strategies taking positive steps towards living and healthier and happier life.
In individual sessions, you are provided a safe environment to deal with painful issues that we sometimes try to avoid – issues involving sexual, emotional or physical abuse in childhood or adulthood, dysfunctional family issues, or deep depression and suicidal feelings. Finding a safe space to address these concerns can break the isolation and begin a process of healing.
Couples therapy gives people the insights and tools they need to recover the sense of closeness, understanding, tenderness, and passion that first drew them together.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy technique designed to work for those with distressing or traumatic memories. Whether your traumatic experience was recent or in the distant past, treatment for trauma can help you heal and move forward in life. The theory behind EMDR is that many psychological difficulties are the result of distressing life experiences leading to memories that are unprocessed or blocked. Any stressful experience that leaves you feeling frightened, isolated, or helpless can be traumatic. If those adjectives describe how you feel, you should seek treatment even if you think your situation “doesn’t count” because it doesn’t involve physical injury. Trauma is about a personal experience of an event or on-going stress. These traumatic memories may need some help to become processed, and EMDR is one way to do this.
Help for the Helpers
Pastors are people who routinely help carry the burden for others. Who shares the burdens of the pastor? Your supervisor, Bishop, or overseer are great resources. But, what happens when you need to unload your burden and you cannot or should not tell your supervisors? Unbelievably, pastors are human too. They suffer from the same life issues, fears, doubts, and temptations that their members do. However, pastors must keep their witness and modeling face on at all times, so their people won’t falter. This makes it hard for pastors to let others in to help them.
