Restorative Counseling offers inclusive counseling services

Using strength-based counseling methods, we’ll help you reconnect with your best self so you can live the life you desire.

Everyone has problems. Everyone feels stress and strain.

But sometimes, things can build up: Past difficulties. Bad circumstances. Learned behaviors. Learned responses.

Often, you don’t even realize the layers that have formed and how they influence your ability to function.

We’re here for you!

At Restorative Counseling, you’ll enjoy a safe space to explore areas causing you distress.

As your partners, we’ll combine our wide-ranging counseling services to tailor an approach specifically for you – to optimize your results.

You’ll maximize your strengths and master using them to overcome the challenges you face.

Wellness. Success. Fulfillment.

Yours.

We can help!

At Restorative Counseling, we offer a safe space to explore areas that may be causing distress. From there, we focus on the strengths you possess and how those strengths can be used to overcome whatever challenges you are facing.

As a result of working together with you, we aim to achieve wellness, success, and fulfillment. The wide range of expertise offered by our clinicians allows for a uniquely tailored approach to maximize your success.

Read some frequently asked questions about counseling and accepted insurance plans.

Your privacy is important to us, and confidentiality is an important piece of the therapeutic process. All your information is kept strictly confidential. However, there are specific exceptions:

  • With your signed permission, we may collaborate with other providers such as your psychiatrist or primary care physician
  • By law, we are required to break confidentiality and report to the appropriate authorities if we learn that you are a danger to yourself or others or if we learn of actual or threatened harm to those who are vulnerable such as children, elderly, or those with special needs.

Our paperwork details the limits of confidentiality, and we will discuss this more fully during our first appointment.

Often, people think they must be in crisis or that things must be “really bad” before they go to counseling. Counseling can help offer support and validation, determine if and how to make necessary changes, and achieve goals.

Maybe you worked with a counselor in the past but feel like things are becoming difficult again. This happens; life happens.

Just as with many things in life, we, too, may require ongoing maintenance to deal with new struggles or to continue managing ongoing stressors.

We work together to learn about your experience and determining what may be most useful for you.

We offer counseling services only, not medication management. However, we are happy to refer you to psychiatrist, or you can ask your primary care physician to assist you with medication management.

With your written consent, we can collaborate with your psychiatrist or physician regarding your mental health care.

We are in-network with a variety of insurance options. As an “in-network” provider, we have a contract with the insurance company so you are able to utilize your in-network health insurance benefits. There are many types of insurance plans within a network, so it is advised to call your insurance company to see if Restorative Counseling is covered in your network.

  • Aetna
