Life has never been free of challenges - some anticipated and some not so much.  Depression, death, grieving, anxiety, menopause, divorce, PTSD, addiction, infidelity...  Counseling is an opportunity to confidentially talk about these life challenges with a compassionate, trained and objective professional who can provide insight, reflection and objectivity.  We would very much like to help.   

Harvest House provides a safe environment free from judgment, criticism, shame and guilt. We offer kindness, compassion, safety and confidentiality away from the onslaught of the world for your healing.  

Therapy is designed to help you find insight, support, and new strategies for life's struggles. Personal responsibility, self-awareness, objectivity, healthy communication skills, healthy boundaries are some of the benefits of indiviudal therapy. 

Marriage beckons us......with the hope of enduring love, close companionship and ultimate union. In truth, marriage and childrearing are probably the most difficult and rewarding ventures one can take up in a lifetime.  

The marriage journey begins with an experience of love that will "right all wrongs" and "conquer every darkness".  It is this work of marriage that few of us are ever prepared for and even fewer are equipped to undertake.  Marriage will challenge the hardiest of souls.      

Marriage enfolds two storylines with the accompanying strengths, challenges, fears, insecurities, doubts and dreams of each person.  And it is here in the intimacy of marriage where those two stories unfold, intertwine and get worked out into a new story to be told.  

A story wouldn't be a story if it didn't have challenges and difficulties.  Whether your issue is infidelity, addiction, betrayal, bad boundaries, poor communication or other traumas, marriage therapy works with couples to recognize and resolve conflicts, increase healthy communication, establish healthy boundaries, heal hurts and wounds and plot a course for the future.  The future is yours to write.  We can help you consider how that story might unfold.  

We provide a safe, warm, caring, confidential environment to tell your story.  It is here that it can be rewritten.  

Family life is important.

With a variety of different life stages under one roof not to mention the unique challenges we have when we work at knitting families together, family can get complicated.

Family Counseling is for those times when families have a lot to say to one another but have been unsuccessful in truly hearing and understanding each other.  Generational differences are hard to bridge.  We are specifically trained to work with families so that all members can be heard, understood and supported.  We have dedicated years of education and training to this work because we believe in the importance of family.    We know it is hard but is always worth the journey together.

Children struggle with the stresses and hurts of life just like the rest of us.   Often the recipients of collateral damage, they are dealing with very confusing and upsetting life events that need to be made sense of.  Because they are cute and they giggle and play in the backyard, we forget that they are hurting from the problems in their lives that they just don't understand.  
So with children, we have to meet them where they are and talk their language.  This is where child counseling comes in.  It is a unique process that kids really enjoy.  Kids need healing, too.
