Welcome to Alliance Counseling & Therapy
Counseling and therapy are collaborative processes between the client and the ACT professional. We want you to see yourself as a colleague in the therapeutic journey. As we journey together you bring to our work your need, your pain, and/or your desire and potential for healing and growth; we bring care, knowledge, skill, and experience. Client welfare is our primary concern and is the focus of all of our therapeutic efforts. We believe that the therapeutic relationship should be continued only as long as the client is benefiting.
Therapy is not easily described in general statements; it varies with the personalities of the client and counselor, and with the particular issues you bring forward. There are many different methods that may be used, and our counselors will choose the approach they found to be most effective in dealing with the type of issues that you hope to address. Christian counseling is provided for clients expressly requesting it.
Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings during the process such as sadness, anger, guilt, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness. However, the process of therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems and significant reduction in feelings of distress. Another possible benefit would be a greater understanding of personal goals and values; this may lead to greater maturity and happiness as an individual, couple, or family.
