Sincere - Respectful - Confidential - Affordable

Life tends to proceed more or less smoothly most of the time, for most people. But periodically, all of us experience painful, troubling, or disorienting times, when our normal coping mechanisms don't seem to be working.

It is especially at such times that counseling or therapy can be a healthy and supportive resource in dealing more effectively with present challenges, developing insight and learning skills for creating a better future, and even for healing the wounds of the past.

Riverside Counseling tends to a variety of individual's with differing issues including

  • Grief Recovery
  • Anger Management (no classes/individual sessions)
  • Drug/Alcohol Abuse
  • Pre-Marital Counseling
  • Marriage Counseling
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Dual Diagnosis
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Stress Management
  • Gambling Addiction
  • Adjustment to life issues

To get the most out of your counseling experience, it's important that you find a professional whose approach feels right to you. People are different--including counselors--and a good counselor for one person may not be a good counselor for another. Although the only real way to know whether you'd be comfortable with a particular counselor is to meet with him or her, you can begin to assess his or her compatibility with your needs by understanding a little about that counselor's approach. Here are significant elements of our approach:

  • Non-Judgmental
  • Respectful
  • Insightful
  • Gentle & Empathic
  • Solution-Oriented
  • Open-Minded
  • Research-based Techniques
  • Cognitive Therapy Techniques (when relevant)
There is no one recipe for everyone. People are different. At Riverside Counseling we strive to understand and accept each person's legitimate individual personality, and guide them accordingly.
