We work with you to create a plan to accomplish your goals. It requires trust. It requires patience. And most importantly, it requires love.
We equip teens and adults with the tools to handle tough times. Our goal is simple: to help you accept who you are and prepare you for the person you want to be. Many young people in our community lack support at home or at school to manage life’s tests. At Alpines, we are the bridge that supports you on your journey to success.
We offer individual counseling to address a range of issues that impact teens and adults, including puberty, peer pressure, stress from the sudden change, loss of employment, depression, anxiety, family conflict, low self-esteem, childhood trauma, post-traumatic stress, alcohol and drug addiction, and grief. Our goal is to help you unlock your gifts to make good decisions, gain confidence and become self-sufficient.
With positive cognitive-behavioral therapy, we can help you change patterns of thinking that may be preventing you from accomplishing your goals. We also view things from a holistic approach so other modalities are utilized such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy), Grief, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Solutions Focused.
