Always Hope Counseling

Counseling with a faith-based perspective

Approach & Values

Counseling is a sacred trust between the individual and a counselor.  The goal of this trusted relationship is to improve each client’s quality of life by helping the client overcome false beliefs, challenge negative narratives, calm anxiety, resolve conflict, and heal past trauma. Working together, client and counselor also seek to identify client strengths, explore healthy solutions, and develop strategies for hopeful living. 

At Always Hope Counseling, our counselors use evidence-based psychological treatment techniques and practices along with faith based principles and values.

While our counselors promote no organized religion or religious denomination, our counselors work from a Biblical worldview.  Our counselors in no way discriminate against clients of varied religions or faith, nor do they require clients to hold a Biblical worldview in order to receive treatment.

While we believe the Bible is the inspired and written Word of God, we encourage that you seek support from your own church and pastoral resources for questions and issues that involve specific doctrinal and/or religious questions and practices.

There is always hope… Always.

Treatment Approaches

Solution Focused

Cognitive Behavioral

Helping clients understand how thoughts influence their behavior while helping clients identify irrational or harmful thoughts, assess them, and reframe their thoughts in a positive and beneficial way.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Helping clients face and work to resolve their problems rather than running from them.


Helping clients develop awareness, acceptance and management of one’s thoughts and feelings in the present moment. It is often used in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Motivational Interviewing

Helping clients overcome ambivalence to achieve positive behavioral change.

Conflict Resolution

A problem-solving approach, conflict resolution helps clients learn how to communicate more effectively, avoid emotional pitfalls and how to work toward relationship resolutions.
