We are well experienced in working with families, and enjoy witnessing the healing that takes place within the family context. That healing transforms the lives of every member of the family.

The teenage years are a time of great change and identity development. Often, it can feel turbulent, out-of-control, and confusing for both parents and adolescents. These years create many opportunities for tension within the family relationship as well. Our therapist has a strong passion for working with this age group and their parents. Adolescents need to feel and be understood as they journey through new and different struggles. It may feel hard at times to compete with the influence of friends, media and society in your adolescent’s life. Adolescent therapy provides opportunity for your teenager to find change in a healthy and growth-focused environment. Both parents and teenagers are able find health and growth in a wide variety of areas that may be of concern.

The losses of life often take us completely by surprise and take the wind out of our sails. The journey of grief is different for everyone. Often what you need most is someone to come alongside and be willing to sit in the middle of the hurt. You need someone to listen. It feels like no one could understand or know what you are going through. You knew that this happened to others, but never to you. Grief/loss counseling can provide profound healing in the midst of the greatest pain you may have ever felt in your life. We will help you journey through this pain and confusion, in order to get you to a place of healing and restoration.
Depression plagues millions of Americans every day. Signs of depression include: feelings of worthlessness, constantly being tired, withdrawing socially, difficulty with motivation to start tasks, too much sleep or sleeplessness, constant sadness, loss of appetite, feeling empty, apathetic, or simply more “down” than you used to be. Depression can be treated effectively for the majority of people with several key behavioral changes that can be worked on in the therapeutic environment. At Hope Builders Counseling, a highly effective assessment of your depression is provided and from there a treatment plan is developed that will best help you to overcome the depression in your life.
