You’re not alone. We all go through difficult times in our home life or workplace, as a parent or partner, or when despair, trauma, anger or grief feels overwhelming. At the Samaritan Counseling Center professional counselors help individuals, couples and families achieve emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. We will journey with you to achieve your goals of wellness and happiness.

We recognize that faith and spirituality are not part of everyone’s life, and do not promote any religious point of view to those who come for help. We also know that many people have a deep spirituality that plays a tremendous role in their wellbeing. If that’s true for you, we will incorporate that practice into your therapy.

The Samaritan Counseling Center also recognizes the importance of using preferred pronouns and gender identifications. This is a safe place for everyone, no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey.
