What can I expect from Authentic Connections?
Relationships are one of the most valued part of our theory of counseling. We view it as an honor to journey alongside as you take a deeper look at life. We want to offer a safe place for you to unpack some issues and look at them with grace and honesty. A place to connect, to heal and to grow.
We excel at tailoring the therapeutic experience to each person’s individual need through authentic listening, compassion and empowerment. We believe that every person has strengths and choices, and we come alongside to empower you to identify, understand and embrace those characteristics/strengths.
Each therapist at Authentic Connections has a Christian therapeutic foundation and therefore their specialty is integrating the therapeutic process and the Christian faith. (This is always at the direction and request of the client). While we have seen how one’s faith has been instrumental in the healing process, we are also aware that people may have experienced hurt and disappointment in their faith journey and have a lot of mixed emotions, questions and even doubts. We will respect wherever you are at and the exploration will be as you determine. We also encourage and accept anyone from any religious and spiritual background (or no background/beliefs) to meet with us. We offer a safe and non-judgmental place for you to explore and heal.
Here’s a little peek into why we work at Authentic Connections…….
Our therapists are passionate about being in a community environment that focuses on ongoing consultation and support. We also are committed to participate in ongoing trainings and seek out opportunities to learn new techniques to better serve our clients.
We are real people with real struggles on this journey called life. We value the courage and vulnerability it takes to explore our own fears and obstacles so that we may live life to the fullest. We draw on our own experiences as well as those of our brave clients before you, and offer genuine support as you face your own fears and obstacles. We believe that while life is not free from storms, there can be peace amidst the storm. And to get to that peace we sometimes need to explore current or past hurts, wounds, fears, insecurities… .not to get stuck there.. but to be free. We are passionate about journeying alongside our clients so that they may live in hope, freedom and truth.
