We started Roots Counseling after spending seven years in community mental health. While our time there was extremely valuable, we didn’t enjoy the feeling of being stuck in an office setting and having to focus on a diagnosis and not the client as an individual. We saw people given multiple diagnoses without any answers for how to get better. We want our clients to have the tools to truly create a life worth living, and to step out of the trap of their diagnosis. Whether you have anxiety, depression, PTSD, or any other mental health problems, our counseling will give you tools to overcome it.
We personally fell in love with Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills (the basis of our skills groups) and we’ve seen the benefit they provide to us personally and as a couple. Because DBT has provided us with the skills to solve problems and improve our own lives, we love offering that knowledge to those we provide counseling and therapy too. We love that in the DBT group model, we, as facilitators, are also group members and we apply the strategies and lessons learned to ourselves as well.
We believe that through the structure we provide, one that combines group therapy, skills coaching, and individual therapy, clients can get to the root of their problem and heal from the inside out. As they learn these skills and begin to apply them, they will be able to see true healing, which will lead to personal growth, strengthening, and improvement both within themselves and in other aspects of their environment. Our counseling and therapy sessions have a goal in mind — to help you improve on your mental health and to give you the tools to sustain that for a lifetime.
