Counseling/Christian Counseling

Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and the patient. Professional therapists help patients identify goals and potential solutions to problems that cause emotional turmoil, seek to improve communication and coping skills, strengthen self-esteem, and promote behavior change and optimal mental health.  Visions provide traditional outpatient counseling focusing on helping others achieve wellness: mind, body, and Spirit.

Visions therapists provide various services for adults, premarital/married couples, and families.  Visions’ therapists and life coaches have specialized training and experience integrating the Christian faith into treatment. We recognize not everyone who chooses to work with us shares this worldview; it is available if requested.

Our  Licensed therapists take a holistic approach to treating the whole person.  An essential part of our work will involve collaborating and coordinating patient care with their primary care physician, other medical and mental health providers, school, fitness professionals, and community supports to help our patients achieve wellness in every aspect of their lives. Telehealth *video sessions available for Virginia residents are licensed in FL and can provide telehealth services for Florida residents.
