Simple Serenity Counseling

About Us

We believe that healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest caring without judgment, and I cooperatively assist my clients in clarifying their goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one methodology for all individuals and issues, We draw from a number of therapeutic modalities. These include, but are not limited, to psychoeducation, CBT, motivational interviewing, family systems theory, and mindfulness to create a tailored approach for each individual and situation. 

Our Mission

We will strive to provide psychological services which promote individual growth and psychological health. We understand that each client we work with is a unique individual influenced by his or her culture, family, values and beliefs, and personal identity. We honor and respect the uniqueness of each person we treat with the highest levels of quality and care.

Our Vision

To help people transform personal challenges into life-enhancing opportunities
