Tailored to Your Needs

Providing the services that best suit your needs is an important part of successful therapy. Our first goal is to understand what you are dealing with and what you would like to work on.  Strangely enough, figuring that out is not always an easy thing to do but Mindful Life Counseling Center is here to help people explore what will make them happier. Sometimes it is helpful for people to dig in and discover who they are, learn about their personalities, values, and temperament, as well as developing their strengths and managing (while still accepting) their weaknesses.  Mindful Life Counseling Center offers evidence-based assessment measures to provide clients a deeper understanding of self.

It is important for a therapist to understand that everyone is unique and one size fits all does not work for helping people live their best lives. Valuing the individual with respect and professional support is the standard of care at Mindful Life Counseling Center.

The simple act of talking about a problem is valuable. Our purpose is to help people clarify, understand, and come to terms with a variety of issues that cause them to be unhappy with life.  We provide a nurturing, non-judgmental approach geared towards assisting children, adolescents, adults, and families in forming and achieving the outcomes they desire.  Our passion is to help people increase their happiness by creating rich and meaningful lives.
