Counseling Philosophy

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

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

Empowerment of Clients – all people have the capacity to solve their own problems.  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 welcome for clients from all cultures, genders, sexual orientations, disability statuses, and social classes.
