Our professional services are all designed to help people live happier, healthier lives.
Counseling is the core of our program. We offer it by phone, Zoom, in the office, and in the community.
We believe everyone needs someone to talk to especially when life is hard. We take the time to listen to our clients and we counsel them with the intention of comforting, calming, encouraging, and empowering them.
A peer recovery support specialist or “Peer Support” is a certified and trained behavioral health professional that can support you in your recovery journey. They are thoughtfully matched to a client based on their experience and ability to identify with the suffering or experience a client is going through.
One of the hardest things for a person to deal with is getting a new job. The stress of not knowing how you will earn a living and feed your family can be extreme and lead to bad decisions. Getting a job these days is difficult and in many cases seems impossible. We work with clients to help them get employed, or we help them get training and learn new skills so they work.
In most cases, our clients need more than just a little group counseling to achieve lasting change.
Our case managers perform intakes, assess clients’ needs, and create individualized care plans for each client that can include counseling, peer support, vocational rehabilitation, and skills development housing and referrals out to other agencies. Case Managers can also connect clients with immediate help through advocacy and connection to resources for food, shelter, and basic needs.
