On life’s journey we are all faced with challenges which may require outside help. People often seek help when they have run out of answers to the questions that have caused pain, sorrow, and confusion in their daily lives. With the extensive staff at Samaritan , there are a variety of therapeutic approaches we can use to help. Specific therapy depends on the needs of the client and the situation. No matter the issue, our therapists are sensitive to the uniqueness of each person’s viewpoint and needs.
We seek to offer healing and hope through our counseling services.
The staff of Samaritan Counseling Center (SCC) represents a diverse group of trained mental health professionals. Our counselors work with individuals, couples, and families. We currently offer services for disturbances of mood, such as depression, anxiety, and grief. Individuals and families may request therapy for help in dealing with the stress of returning to school, balancing work and family obligations, healing the wounds of a difficult childhood, or dealing with a current or past abusive relationship or traumatic experience.
SCC also offers couples therapy services for those couples experiencing distress, couples who feel complacent and would like to ensure that they continue to grow together, and couples who have experienced infidelity(emotional, sexual, or virtual), and premarital counseling.
In addition, Samaritan Counseling Center provides family therapy services to families experiencing transitions or distress. For example, we offer therapy services to couples with children from previous relationships to help them with their blended family. Some families come to Samaritan already in distress related to a family member’s behavior, substance abuse, mental illness, or other stressor. Family therapy is not limited to just parents and their minor children, Samaritan frequently conducts family therapy with parents and their adult children to resolve ongoing issues, heal old wounds, or help them deal with life transitions such as changes to health status or grief counseling.
Samaritan Counseling Center provides career counseling services to individuals who are looking to either make vertical or lateral moves in their career development or are considering a career change.
