We work hard with our clients to empower, educate, and help them find healthier ways of perceiving, thinking, and coping with the various stressors that occur in everyday living.

Clients whom receive individual counseling from TBC will be empowered, have increased awareness, and will feel compassion coming from our mental health clinicians. We offer solution focused and time effective counseling as our sessions generally are 45 minutes. The remaining 15 minutes of the hour is spent on completing documentation or making phone contacts as needed.
Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts.
Family therapy is usually provided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed therapist. These therapists have graduate or postgraduate degrees and may be credentialed by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT).
Family therapy is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.( According to the Mayo Clinic)

Three major reasons why couples receive therapy is due to lack of communication, trust, and financial issues. I work hard with my married couples to help them establish healthy communication through role playing, scripting, and teaching healthy communication skills techniques. Often homework is given. I give extensive therapy helping couples learn to trust each other through CBT, Christian Counseling, and Strength based counseling. Teaching couples how to build trust and how to forgive is heavily emphasized
How Do I Know if Therapy is Right for Me?
What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an effective combination of talk therapy and behavioral therapy. CBT is a type of psychotherapy in which patients reframe negative thinking patterns into positive thoughts. Transforming one’s thoughts will ultimately result in positive actions and behaviors in difficult moments. CBT can be useful to individuals suffering from eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. During CBT, patients have the opportunity to work with a therapist to find the source of negative thinking and transform those thoughts into a positive, growth mindset. The ultimate goal of CBT is to replace negative thoughts and actions with productive behaviors that make the individual feel equipped to overcome any difficult moment.
Is this Best for me?
Individuals will recognize how their thinking influences their emotions and will establish personalized coping mechanisms. Working with a therapist to find effective and personalized coping mechanisms will ultimately help individuals identify and manage thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in real-world situations. (According to Psychology Today)
What Is Strength Based Therapy?
Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counseling that focuses more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on you best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience and change worldview to one that is more positive. A positive attitude, in turn, can help your expectations of yourself and others become more reasonable. ( According to Psychology Today )
Family Systems Therapy
Family systems therapy is a form of psychotherapy that helps individuals resolve their problems in the context of their family units, where many issues are likely to begin. Each family member works together with the others to better understand their group dynamic and how their individual actions affect each other and the family unit as a whole. One of the most important premises of family systems therapy is that what happens to one member of a family happens to everyone in the family. (According to Psychology Today)
What is Christian Counseling?
Christian counseling is a therapy focus area centering on intertwining the disciplines of faith and psychology to provide an approach to mental and emotional health that pulls from biblical teachings. Practitioners of this style of counseling incorporate religious scripture and teachings to guide you through challenging life issues. When facing turbulent life events, integrating and strengthening your faith may be the missing piece in finding proper treatment. A Christian counselor can help you to navigate life’s challenges in ways that respect your faith. (According to Therapy Tribe)
