Counseling Services

The Samaritan Counseling Center fosters hope and healing through professional counseling, consultation and education while respecting and integrating personal and spiritual values.

Counseling or psychotherapy is working with a trained therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment that is tailored to your needs. Therapists work together with their clients to define and achieve their goals, help grow clients’ understanding about themselves and how they relate to others and learn how to maintain the growth they have achieved. Our trained clinical staff work with children and adolescents, adults, couples and families. We offer in-person and video therapy.

  • Relief and treatment for emotional distress (depression, anxiety, panic, anger, and adjustment disorders)
