Family & Marriage Counseling Services

Our Mission

Life Encounter Counseling Services intends to foster a helpful and encouraging environment for personal growth through a measured and safe encounter with the realities of life.

Key to Growth

85% of a successful counseling process is the relationship that you have with your counselor. It is not based in what they know or what degrees they have! A “click” the first session doesn’t happen all the time! You will know if it is a good “fit” within 3 sessions.

Safe Encounter

Trust, respect, predictability and consistency. These are the elements of a safe encounter! Our intention is to promote and facilitate this kind of environment for you!
