Family Counseling is all about building a secure foundation where your family can explore their emotions, learn to reconnect, and grow from past experiences. Families often seek out counseling in times of life transitions such as divorce, the loss of a love one, or to better understand a family member affected by mental illness. At Solace Counseling, we will provide you with one our top-notched counselor's with years of training who will guide your family through each obstacle that arises. In a session, you can expect for your counselor to listen tentatively to each family member as a neutral third party. A counselor can often spot where the issue lies and offer guidance by teaching family members better communication skills, ways to support other family members, and strong coping skills.

What can I expect from a counseling session at Solace Counseling and Consulting LLC?
At Solace Counseling and Consulting LLC you can expect to meet with one of our licensed therapists with years of experience and dually trained in theology and psychology. Our sessions begin by gathering personal history and a history of the current issues. We will discuss the obstacles you are currently facing and discuss strategies to address your concerns.

Sessions are usually 45 to 50 minutes in length. Longer and shorter sessions can be arranged as needed.
How long can I expect treatment to last?
There is no defined timeframe. Everyone is different as has their own unique needs. Therefore, we develop each client's treatment plan on an individual basis. As discussed previously, in our first session we will make a treatment plan based upon the clients needs and estimate how many sessions may be a good fit.
