General Therapy Types

Individual Therapy occurs when an individual and therapist work together in understanding, assessing, and processing life issues which are causing the individual to struggle in their daily life.  It is important that the individual feel comfortable with personal sharing and disclosing with their therapist who can aid the individual in learning evidenced-based healthy coping skills to process and grow.  Read More……

Marriage Counseling is sought out when married individuals are having difficulties which cause the relationship to struggle and falter.  Marriage counseling provides a safe environment for the individuals to share their personal truths with one another with a goal of learning to communicate and relate to their spouse in a healthy and healing way.  Marriage therapy encourages both personal growth as well as growth within the couple which can lead to a stronger foundation for their marriage.  Read More……

What do I do next?

Choosing the right therapist to partner with as you learn ways to process your thoughts and feelings in a healthy manner is a decision that merits consideration. So, let’s take a look at where to begin…..

What type of therapist do I need?

There are generally two different types of therapists. One chooses to specialize in a particular area of therapy such as substance abuse or relationship counseling. The other chooses to be more generalized seeking work with a broad spectrum of clients.

Counseling Partners has chosen to be a general therapy provider.

This is largely due to the smaller size of our community and the varied needs we see in our clients. Initially, we saw clients in the school environment working with students who struggled with anxiety, depression and self-harming behaviors. This work led to the realization that families of those students were struggling, so we expanded our therapy practice to family, marriage, couples, and relationship counseling. The more we worked with families, the more it became apparent the need for training in substance abuse including alcohol, prescription medicines as well as illegal substances.

Very quickly, we understood that to best serve our community and its members, we needed to be skilled in the foundational therapy needs we were seeing presented in our office.
