Counseling Services

Are you concerned about your child or teen and their emotional well-being or development? Is their behavior dominating your family or your daily life? Are you struggling with communication in your relationship? Has you or your child or teen experienced a traumatic event that is difficult to understand or handle?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, you or your child or family may benefit from counseling.  Counseling with a specialized professional can put you onto the path of healing and wellness.  Embark offers quality therapists to provide individual, couples, relationship and family therapy.

When someone in the family is struggling, the whole family struggles. 

Most families experience discord, feel stuck or overwhelmed at some time. It may seem like you just can’t get ahead in life. While everyone feels this way from time to time, sometimes it can be hard to make changes on your own.  Whatever your struggles may be, seeking counseling is a way to make changes in your life. Counseling helps individuals view their world from a healthier perspective, communicate experiences and emotions in a way that is natural and meaningful. When life is more in balance, one not only feels better, but also behaves more appropriately.

Our clinicians enjoy working with children, teens, couples and families to help them adjust to daily life challenges, relationship difficulties, transitions, as well as develop strategies to cope with the challenges they are experiencing. Each clinician establishes a supportive and empathic environment to cultivate trust so that changes can be explored. Our clinicians value partnering with families to help each member of the family flourish and strive toward their greatest potential.

Our clinicians specialize in several areas and approaches for individuals, families and couples to help move toward change with the challenges and issues that one may experience.

Our Approach

Counseling services typically begin with an initial consultation with the individual and other family members (if appropriate). After the initial consultation, or up to four sessions, treatment suggestions will be discussed and agreed upon at a subsequent therapy session. In counseling sessions, we create a partnership with you in a safe, caring and supportive place to explore life’s difficulties, and learn how to balance social, emotional or behavioral challenges, and improve relationships.

Together, we navigate a new path of hope and healing with guidance from a strength-based perspective, whether in individual, couples or family counseling. For counseling with children and teens, we encourage a positive and collaborative relationship with the parents of each child, and we believe that each parents’ involvement in the child’s therapy is important to the child’s progress. Oftentimes, family counseling is indicated to help integrate your child’s positive growth into the family dynamics and parent-child relationship.

We approach therapy with families from a systems approach, focusing on attachment styles and patterns. All connections and communication patterns in the family impact another, and an approach that focuses on all connections and patterns provides not only relief for the pain, discord or imbalance that you are experiencing in your family, but it also works on the root cause for the issue. This provides a new path for the family to embrace peace and enjoyment of each other.
