RISE Counseling Inc strides to provide the community with exceptional mental health services and quality care for individuals. RISE represents Resilience, Introspection, Strength and Empowerment. These pillars are imperative to our client’s progression toward personal goals and self improvement. Though many have experienced hardships, we all possess Resilience to continue moving forward while developing a sense of Strength within ourselves. Through Introspection, we discover our true selves and as a result feel a sense of Empowerment. Each and every therapist at RISE embodies similar values, which contributes to the importance of making our clients the very first priority. Therapists all have a collaborative working style that ensures compassion and understanding. There is no judgement as we are here to serve our clients with integrity and competence.

Since we have several therapist we are able to offer services to a wide range of ages, cultural backgrounds, and provide a treatment modality that fits each individual client’s needs. Each therapist has their own unique approach to meet clients needs some are emotionally focused, some cognitive behaviorally focused, and some psychodynamically focused to name a few. Several of the therapists are trained in trauma treatment and it would be best if they were paired with those clients prior to first assessment.
