Professional Family Counseling – Parents often depend on professional counselors to help their children who are struggling with mental and emotional issues. We believe in looking at the family as a whole to discover the best route to helping their kids. Additionally, healthy parents create healthy children most of the time. We encourage parents to engage in parent coaching and counseling as well to support the changes they wish to see in their children. We also have seen through experience and research that our children and our families can be struggling because of the family they come from. Past family issues can surface in the lives of our children. Our children inherit the best and worst of us as parents and to some degree from the family tree. We say “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” To truly have healthy children, consider getting family counseling here at The Kitchen Table. Our approach combines individual counseling and family counseling to get things back on track.
Individual Licensed Professional Counseling Services – We believe mental, spiritual and emotional health is attainable with guidance and support from caring competent professionals.

We look at what is going on now and help you process your issues to gain emotional relief and clarity and we also look to the future and support our clients on how to get back on track with a purposeful fulfilling life. Our professional staff is required to be on their own journey of health to work at The Kitchen Table. We have learned and continue to learn from both our own life experiences and our educational background to better help our clients overcome many life challenges. Typical issues we help with include anxiety, depression, anger, unresolved past hurts, men’s and women’s issues, adolescent issues, parenting, domestic abuse, boundary issues, single adult issues, drug addiction and more. We work with all ages.
TRAUMA CLEARING COUNSELING
Most people do not realize it, but traumatic events that cause conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are curable. That’s right, curable! In the 1970’s, Francine Shappiro discovered a technique known as EMDR. EMDR is a technique that uses eye movement to desensitize and help people reprocess traumatic memories from their past. EMDR helps to quickly renew the mind of disturbing images, sounds, smells and other parts of a memory that may still cause stress and chaos in a person’s mind and body. Repressed memories of traumatic events are a major cause of dysfunctional behavior in our lives. With just a couple of sessions, multiple traumatic memories can be effectively processed so that they no longer causing intense negative physical or emotional disturbances in the mind and body. Trauma Clearing help you let go of connected dysfunctional behaviors, choosing healthier coping mechanisms for your life.
