LifeCare Counseling & Coaching provides comprehensive psychotherapy, marriage counseling, coaching, and relational healing for individuals and families who are struggling with emotional conflicts or mental health challenges and are eager to design a better life.  Our professional counselors have clinical expertise within a wide range of treatment areas and offer state-of-the-art techniques, including:

  • EMDR, which is scientifically proven to address anxiety, flashbacks and nightmares in those who have experienced trauma.
  • Trust-Based Relational Intervention® to build trust in challenging circumstances such as helping adopted children transition to their new home.

Within LifeCare, you will find compassionate, experienced therapists who specialize in your mental health needs. And, should you ever require medication, LifeCare's psychiatrist works closely with you and your therapist to ensure you benefit from the best integrated mental health care.

Exited to grow? LifeCare also offers coaching as well as pre-marital counseling for all who seek to enrich their lives and reach new goals. 


  • All LifeCare counselors are licensed professionals or serve as interns under direct supervision of a senior licensed counselor.
  • All LifeCare counselors are theologically trained and are active members of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) as well as the International Board of Professional Christian Counselors (IBPCC). 
  • You always have a psychiatrist available should you ever need to benefit from more intensive care.
