Inspire Professional Counseling is a psychotherapy practice dedicated to offering empathetic, culturally sensitive, cognitive-behavioral focused psychotherapy specializing in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, complex stress and trauma, family of origin stressors, substance use disorders, childhood abuse, and grief and loss issues. We offer the capability to schedule sessions during the week, evening, and weekend, EAP services, play therapy for all ages, couples & family counseling, as well as Christian-focused and bilingual Spanish therapy.

The cognitive-behavioral theoretical orientation is our primary (however not sole) clinical orientation. We incorporate the most effective evidence-based interventions after careful and thorough assessment (with our clients) of their unique and individualized needs.  When appropriate will also incorporate ancillary services to offer a holistic approach to healing with the goal of facilitating a process of collaboration with our community partners that will ultimately allow the client to experience long-term healing through the self-directed integration of clinical and holistic interventions.
