Counseling Philosophy

At CreekSide Counseling Services, we believe that problems present an opportunity for personal growth and that mental health counseling is a positive approach to dealing with life’s challenges and transitions.

Our Strengths-based approach is built on the following tenets:

Empowerment of Clients – All people have the capacity to solve their own problems and the counselor’s job is to help clients discover their own inner strengths.

Respect for Clients – All clients will be treated with dignity and integrity.

Appreciation of Diversity – Our clinic provides an atmosphere of acceptance and welcomes clients from all cultures, genders, sexual orientations, disability statuses, and social classes.
