“Is this all there is?”

This is often what our adult clients are thinking when they come to Forward Counseling.  Our answer to that question is “there’s more.”

You might need a guide to find out what is your own personal “more,” but we can get you there.  A good fishing captain takes you where the big fish are biting.  A good therapist takes you to the barriers to your happiness, and then they help you cross them.

We believe in the power of change and look at times of stress and distress as opportunities to grow.   Strength and growth emerge when we face our fears.  A skillful therapist can help you uncover and build your strengths in order to manage your life better. 

“Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.” – Albert Schweitzer.
