Supporting transformation and growth

You’ve come to the right place.

Are you feeling stressed, anxious or “on edge”? Is it hard to find happiness, pleasure and hope in everyday life? Would you like to improve your relationships with your spouse, your child…or your boss? Are you held back by fear or low self-esteem due to a difficult childhood or past trauma?

People seek counseling for many different reasons. You may be struggling with everyday stresses related to work, parenting or relationships. You may be coping with a major life transition such as divorce, illness, loss of a job…or loss of a loved one. Sometimes we’re not sure why we’re feeling anxious or sad; this can be a sign that issues from our past are impacting how we are functioning today. Whenever life starts to feel overwhelming, remember that you are not alone.

At Clearwater Counseling and Personal Growth Center, we offer the compassion and expertise to help you successfully manage all of life’s challenges.

Not just counseling. Counseling that works.

When you visit Clearwater Counseling, you’ll find a safe, welcoming environment built on trust, confidentiality and respect. You’ll meet regularly with a caring, experienced counselor who is dedicated to addressing your unique concerns. Within this nonjudgmental relationship, you’ll be empowered to build on your inner strengths — strengths you may not even realize you possess. You’ll learn powerful new tools that will help you achieve more peace and happiness in your everyday life.


Healing the whole you – mind, body and spirit.

At Clearwater Counseling, we’re dedicated to addressing your needs as a whole person. This means helping you heal emotionally while also promoting your physical, social and spiritual wellness.

Based on your individual needs and goals, your counselor may recommend individual counseling, couples counseling, coaching, parent-child counseling or a combination of these approaches. Your counselor may also utilize proven, solution-based tools such as Mindfulness Training, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).


The sooner you call, the sooner you can start feeling better.

Many people go through life feeling unhappy, angry or dissatisfied. They think seeking help is a sign of weakness. But, in reality, the act of seeking help is a sign of both strength and courage. When you try to just “put up” with feeling sad, stressed or anxious, this can take a tremendous toll on your emotional and physical health, and on your relationships with others.

At Clearwater Counseling & Personal Growth Center, you’ll learn how to grow your own strengths and discover new ways of coping, so you can enjoy a calmer, happier, and more fulfilling life.
