  • Addiction
  • Communication
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and Loss
  • Mood disorders
  • Life transition
  • Sexual abuse/past abuse
  • Child development issues

Can I change counselors within your group?

Yes. At CenterPoint, our goal is to help you. Our staff includes a range of therapists with varied styles and techniques. We try to match you with someone you can work with, but if you feel a different therapist might be a better fit for you, we are happy to facilitate that change.

How long will therapy take?

Although this is a common question, there is no easy answer. When you begin seeing one of our therapists, he or she will help define your situation and plan a course of therapy.

How much will this cost?

Since every scenario is unique, we cannot tell you exactly how much your therapy will cost. However, we will work with you and your insurance provider to make the experience affordable.

CenterPoint Counseling’s Samaritan Fund may be one way to offset the cost of therapy for qualified individuals and families.

Since you are located in a church, do you only offer “Christian counseling”?

Even though our offices are located within a church, we offer much more than “Christian counseling.” Some of our therapists are ordained ministers and specialize in pastoral counseling. All of the CenterPoint counselors are certified and trained in a variety of specialties.

  • Licensed Clinical Social Worker
  • Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Why do I need to talk about my childhood?

Even though your childhood may seem long ago, events and issues from that time continue to affect your life in profound ways. Often, individuals may be struggling with a problem rooted in circumstances that impacted them as children.

We don’t want to dwell unnecessarily on the details of your childhood, but we will examine issues from your past that might be influencing your life today.

If my partner is the problem, why do I have to come?

It may seem like your partner is the one with the issues, but we need your participation to get a more complete view of the situation. Your perspective of your partner helps us help him or her.
