Journeys Counseling Center was founded as a place where people of all walks of life can seek health and personal growth.  Our multi-disciplinary team of therapists was selected for their expertise, commitment to people, and authenticity.  In a fast-paced, insurance driven medical field, the tried and true elements of healing can be forgotten.  Working with our excellent, highly trained team of professionals to get the best fit for you and/or your family is a rare find.  We keep our costs competitive with current market rates for counseling.  By not contracting with insurance companies, we find that we can collaborate with clients regarding decisions for mental health care.  In addition, Journeys is committed to healthy teamwork.  This team approach allows for multiple members of families to seek treatment at the same time and gives you a variety of options to reach your personal and relational goals.
