The Inner Strength Way
We all have it - special gifts inside of us that make life better for us and the people we care about. Sometimes life’s challenges hide these gifts like the clouds hide the sun. Sometimes we forget we have them because of all those days when things don’t seem to be going our way. The truth is, whether we see our gifts or not, they’re always inside of us waiting to shine just like the sun. Our team at Inner Strength Counseling empowers people to find that potential and grow it.
Strength Based Services: At Inner Strength Counseling we recognize the unique strengths and abilities in all families. We shine the spot light on the Positive and look for the solutions. Every family has strengths and we work to help them recognize and build on those inherent qualities.
Collaborative: The Challenges that families face are never one dimensional. We conduct thorough and holistic evaluations with community resources. Important community partners, such as schools and health care providers, are involved in treatment when appropriate.
Culturally Sensitive: Treatment is culturally sensitive and works towards strengthening relationships. We recognize that every family has a unique story and we work to hear and honor those stories. Keeping the family in focus creates lasting change and healing, and just as family is unique, all interventions are tailored to individual family's need; including Spanish speaking when needed.
