Counseling Futures operates from a Christian perspective. Biblical principles are an integral part of the counseling process and treatment plan for the majority of our clients where faith is an important part of the therapeutic progression. If the spiritual aspect of one’s life is suffering, then other areas may be negatively impacted and will seem magnified. It is important to identify this spiritual disconnect and work to find resolution in order to move forward in the healing process.
Group Counseling provides a setting for individuals to gather together to share, learn and be accountable to others in a safe, confidential, and supportive space.

Group counseling has many benefits including having a sense of belonging, improving social skills with interpersonal interactions, increasing motivation to share, the ability to gain an outside perspective, and continued support provided by others in similar situations.
Group members can share information about themselves and provide feedback to other group members. The group leader, a trained therapist, will facilitate productive communication and guide the group discussions. Groups can entail a variety of issues including self-esteem, relationships, infertility, and social anxieties to name a few.
