All of the Biblically based and psychologically sound services of CCCRD are based upon years of training and experience. The services are designed for the prevention and rehabilitation of spiritual, psychological, relational and selected physical problems.
At CCCRD, we provide treatment for children, adolescents and adults through individual, group, couple and family counseling. Our staff offers specialized treatment for relationship problems. We offer brief and long-term counseling, with an emphasis upon understanding spiritual and human dynamics and their interactions.
Our counselors approach treatment with different viewpoints. However, we all seek to integrate the truths of Scripture with appropriate information from psychology, sociology and medical science theories and research. Our counseling staff is trained and experienced in providing counseling that is psychodynamic (insightful), eclectic (combining theories and techniques), cognitive, behavioral and family systems oriented. Our treatment is tailored to the individual client personality and his or her particular problem(s). Also, our counseling approach is gender-sensitive and supportive.
In the counseling field, it is widely understood that the therapeutic relationship is the key factor in healing. Our staff knows how to create these healing relationships with respect, warmth, safety, acceptance and commitment. All communications are held in the strictest of confidence.
One-on-one counseling focuses on remedying emotional, cognitive, spiritual and selected physical problems. Examples include: abuse, addiction, fear, personality, depression, anxiety, loneliness, physical pain and stress, as well as spiritual and relational problems. Special attention is given to one's relationship with himself or herself, i.e., identity and esteem, as well as the quality and function of relating to God and others.
An educational and therapeutic approach teaches pre-engaged and premarital couples how to acquire the skills necessary to build lasting relationships. Couples learn to avoid the behaviors that often result in being unhappy or divorced.
All couples come to understand how their individual personalities affect their relationship for good and ill, both now and in the future. Couple counseling resolves conflicts in areas such as communication, sex, child-rearing, separation and divorce and establishes emotional and spiritual oneness.
What do you do if your spouse cannot or will not come in for counseling? There is room for hope. Although it is always best to see the couple together to work out marital problems, change can be brought about with only one person in counseling. Since a relationship is a system of interactions, one person can effect a change by setting boundaries to which the other person must adjust. We understand how to help facilitate change in this most difficult of situations.
The focus is on helping parents develop confidence and leadership skills and to create a "sense of family" because the marriage is the backbone of the family. We remedy problems in areas such as pregnancy, discipline, substance abuse, single parenthood and communication, as well as conflicts with stepparents, in-laws and extended family members.
Men's, women's, couple and coed small groups provide a unique, safe environment. Group members benefit by gaining support, insight, knowledge and accountability. Members also acquire relational skills and learn to develop a "sense of community." Group counseling is a powerful method for helping people work out problems with attachments to others and God.
PAIN & STRESS MANAGEMENT
Adults learn what stress is, how it physically affects them and how to manage it properly. We help alleviate the suffering from panic, fear, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, ulcers, fatigue, gastrointestinal problems, muscle tension and physical pain caused by injury.
CONCURRENT PSYCHIATRIC TREATMENT
If necessary, and with the client's agreement, we will refer a client for a medication evaluation. This may be recommended if a client is experiencing severe and chronic problems, such as: physical pain, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and anxiety. Medication can be a temporary aid in reducing the strength of the negative symptoms and, thereby, assist the client in getting more from counseling in a shorter time. Always, the client remains in uninterrupted counseling at CCCRD.
Client and therapist-penned poetry is written to encourage, challenge and support those persons going through the process of counseling. We believe words can change the world.
