The staff at
FAMILY PHASES COUNSELING believes that personal and professional conflicts are best dealt with in a straightforward and direct manner. Our goal is to provide growth opportunities, care, and support to help bring about relational, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.

The licensed therapists and registered interns at FAMILY PHASES COUNSELING have training and expertise in the following areas: individual therapy for adult men and women, couples counseling, premarital counseling, counseling for teens and young adults, and child therapy (including play therapy).

Occasionally, upon encountering various life or situational difficulties, a person may become so emotionally distraught or so close to a problem that finding a resolution requires professional guidance.
