Emerge Pastoral Care & Counseling
Mission: At Emerge we desire to be the leading example of how to live life on purpose by reaching out to the community and offering services that will aide in growth and development: body, mind, and spirit.
Vision: We help individuals to achieve their unique purpose and destiny through Pastoral Care & Counseling.
Our specialty is working with individuals, couples, or groups who have suffered trauma.
Trauma is defined as a deeply disturbing or distressing experience! No one is exempt from traumatic experiences.
PTSD Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a mental, emotional, and/or spiritual disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic incident such as: sexual assault, warfare, traffic accidents or any other threats to ones person.
We offer a blend of art with a Person Centered approach to counseling along with a variety of Brief Therapies. Using Art allows the individuals to have an expressive outlet for the distress in their lives. Through art in therapy one gives words to the images that arise from the various artistic expressions. It is a telling of "your story" that promotes healing and allows one to EMERGE free!

One on one private sessions allow individuals the privacy to discuss sensitive issues that are holding them back from experiencing a full life. When dealing with traumatic situations, some people prefer the individual therapy approach. Emerge Pastoral Care & Counseling is sensitive to this and offers you the opportunity to have counseling sessions in the privacy of your own home.
Despite how we feel at times after experiencing trauma we are not alone! Others have hurts, habits, and hang-ups that they too have suffered. By engaging in group therapy sessions, individuals are surrounded by others who can understand their experience and offer encouragement. All group members are asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement that: "what is said or done in any of the sessions stays in the sessions!" The integrity of the group is dependent on all members of the group adhering to this rule of the group.
Marriage and divorce can be a very traumatic experiences. At Emerge Pastoral Care & Counseling we are trained in Pre-martial counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy. Couples who have experienced trauma are encouraged to allow professionals to come along side them as they begin the healing process. We believe that God, Trust, Communication, and Honesty are values to every relationship! In couples therapy we address the elements needed to reinforce these values that help to build long lasting relationships.
