For people desiring to apply their faith and values to their mental wellness, the Wellspring Group is a soft place to land. Wellspring clinicians provide competent, clinical mental health counseling that helps clients clearly identify their goals and move toward positive change. We take a holistic approach to clients' health; remembering that all people are simultaneously mind, body, and spirit. We believe it is most helpful to integrate all of those dimensions, as we equip clients to accomplish goals for themselves, couples, families, and communities. Many of our clinicians hold a Christian worldview and beliefs and are happy to integrate that into the therapy if the client desires.
Wellspring Group clients do not feel like a number. Their relationship with their counselor is personal and therapeutic. We are client focused – our main goal is to help clients get the most effective help we can and so sometimes this means referring you to resources outsides of the Wellspring Group. All our providers offer free consultations to help get people to the right services.
Authenticity – To be genuine, real, and deliberate
Integrity – To be guided by strong moral principles, honesty, and transparency as we aim to do what is right
Excellence – To exceed client expectations in the counseling experience and process
Humor – To remember that one of the greatest pleasures in life is to laugh
Wholeheartedness – To engage with our clients from a place of wholeness and sincerity
Collaboration – To value and integrate the expertise of clients and clinicians
Sovereignty of God - To understand that ultimately God is in control and to believe that God is interested in our health and healing
Development – To be sincerely engaged in the growth process
Curiosity – To understand that no matter how many books or research articles we have read, each client is a unique individual
Above all, we strive to serve each other and our clients with great love.
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN COUNSELING?
Many people come to the Wellspring Group because they want "Christian counseling." That can mean a different thing to each person you ask. So can the word "Christian" for that matter. We want prospective clients to know that all our counselors are clinically trained, mental health providers. We all have (at minimum) a Master's degree in counseling psychology or marriage and family therapy. We all abide by a specific Code of Ethics for our license(s).
We also want you to know that we follow the client's lead on how much of your faith is integrated into your counseling. For example, if you want to periodically talk about your relationship with God, we can do that with you. If you want to discuss your beliefs about God's omnipotence, spiritual abuse that you've endured, or your desire to trust God more, we can do those things as well. We will not tell you what to believe. We honor that God is doing something in you, and it is your counselor's job to come alongside that and be a guide, not a dictator.
