The Counseling and Training Center, Inc.T
The Counseling and Training Center strives to provide high quality services that are individualized and built on strengths. Our goal is to support the recovery, health and overall well-being of the individuals served; enhance quality of life; reduce symptoms or need; build resilience; and improve family cohesion and functioning.
All of our services are provided with these goals in mind, and each service is recommended based on individual need.
Services are outpatient, which allows minimal disruption of day-to-day life, and are also community based, which means our clinicians will come to your home! Individuals also have the option of in-office sessions, as well.
