At our clinic, every person that walks through our doors is treated with individualized care and the utmost respect. During your first session with a certified counselor, we aim to chat with you in a comfortable, confidential environment to learn about your struggles and identify your goals. You can expect your counselor to ask you some questions to assess the severity and potential triggers of your anxiety issues.
Rest assured, we understand that these struggles are often sensitive topics and can be difficult to talk about openly. When you come into our clinic, you are in a safe space. We encourage our patients to share their thoughts, opinions, and concerns, but only as they feel comfortable doing so.
Working collaboratively with you, your counselor will set some realistic, achievable goals to reduce and eliminate anxious thought patterns, habits, and reactions in your life. Together, we'll come to an agreement on the best anxiety treatment for you. Our clinic is certified in and has extensive experience implementing, proven anxiety treatments and techniques, such as EMDR therapy. Our initial, in-depth consultation will help us decide which strategy is best suited for you as a unique, God-created individual.

We consider our practice a safe space for all voices to be heard, and we handle all cases with empathy and respect. Whatever your situation may be, we are here to help.

Christian Counseling has a specialization in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR), an integrative psychotherapy technique which is a researched, tested, and proven technique for the treatment of anxiety related to trauma. It has also been used to treat phobias, stress, depression, and eating disorders.
Typically, EMDR involves talk therapy while inducing rapid-eye-movements (by, for example, focusing on a swinging pendulum). Its purpose is to help patients process thoughts, emotions, and feelings that may otherwise be suppressed by one's conscious.
EMDR can help to unlock painful memories and eliminate negative thoughts from the patient's mind. It is a trusted treatment option used by the American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, and the Veteran's Association.
At Christian Counseling, our sessions introduce EMDR gradually until a patient has reached a point of comfort. It is a non-intrusive treatment option for those who want to extricate themselves from negative feelings and emotions.
There are many effective treatments for anxiety.
At Christian Counseling, we are committed to doing the work of figuring out which one is right for you.
While drug therapy has been proven effective to combat anxiety in many people, we know that this approach is not always right for everyone. We are trained in determining which anxiety treatment fits your needs, including anxiety treatment with no medication.
Once we've diagnosed your condition, we'll develop a custom treatment plan that targets the source of your anxiety issues. Based on your personal history and circumstances, we'll offer a variety of treatment options that help you find solace and recover your well-being. We'll tailor your treatment to root out negative thoughts, bring balance to your life, and improve your core beliefs about yourself. That way, you can develop a healthy, sustainable regimen that helps you recover from your anxiety for good.
The options for natural anxiety treatment can involve diet, exercise, challenging negative thought patterns, and specific tools and strategies to work through difficult emotions.
If you decide that drug therapy is right for you, Christian Counseling will be happy to help you with resources to pursue this strategy, with or without psychotherapy.
Anxiety does not discriminate based on age, income level, or the presence of a loving and supportive family. At Christian Counseling, we are proud to provide anxiety treatment for kids. With our compassionate and faith-based approach, we can help your child rise to the unique challenges and difficulties of childhood and growing up in an age-appropriate way. We'll differentiate our treatment based on your child's precise circumstances. That way, we can offer a suitable prognosis that helps your child achieve a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
In addition to anxiety treatment for kids, we can provide anxiety treatment for the elderly, as well as for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Life circumstances change based on who we are, but the love and grace of God is a constant in all our lives.
We've helped countless clients recover from anxiety disorders, improve their confidence, and pave the way for a healthy, vibrant life. Our treatments are safe and effective, based as much on evidence as on faith.
