Are You In Need Of Marriage, Family, or Individual Counseling In The Ames, Iowa Area?

Many people seek out therapists but only walk away disappointed. They often comment that they felt like the therapist listened, but they didn’t offer much more than that. Our clients tell us they want guidance and insight into their problems, but they want more than hand holding and a metaphorical pat on the back! Sometimes they want plain and simple practical advice and someone to tell them when they are heading in the wrong direction. Our therapists are trained to help you see deeply into your life but also offer you straight forward advice when you want it. We will do more than hold your hand and say, “I understand”. We will speak to you openly and honestly and challenge you in ways others won’t so that you leave feeling more clear and empowered to live your life and become the best possible version of yourself.
