Getting Started

Connect with a Care Team Member

Our care team is standing by ready to connect. We believe the healing process begins here. It’s not easy to reach out for help so our care team meets you with warmth and understanding…helping you connect at your pace and based on your needs.

Select a Counselor and Location

One of the advantages of WPA Counseling is the diverse group of counselors available to choose from. Our care team will help you pick the right counselor for your needs. If we can’t connect you with one of our counselors we will help you find a referral that will work for you.

Connect with Your Counselor

The care team will schedule an appointment for you either in person at one of our locations or online…depending on what works best for you. At your first appointment, your counselor will get to know your needs and desires for your healing journey and establish a plan to help.

Begin Your Healing Journey

After a plan is put in place, your counselor will guide you through the process of healing at your pace. We believe the counseling relationship is a partnership. You are the expert on your life and your counselor is the expert on the process. Together we can cart a journey to peace and wellness.

Our Counseling Blueprint

Take off the Mask

The first step in the process is to “take off the mask” and be genuine and honest with yourself and your counselor.  This is done through a process of building rapport and trust in the counseling relationship. You were wounded in relationship and it is important to heal in relationship…a safe, accepting and therapeutic relationship with your counselor.

Heal the Wounds

Once rapport and trust are established and the mask is off, your counselor will help you explore what has hurt you.  Our wounds (emotional, spiritual, relational and sometimes physical) are the root cause of our suffering and need to be identified and healed.

Remove the Toxins

Once you have done some healing work on the things that hurt you, your counselor will help you identify the toxins left behind. These are the lies you believed, consciously or subconsiously at the time of the wounding that can stick with you long after the wound is healed.

Replace with Truth

Once the toxic beliefs are removed, there is room for the truth. Your counselor will help you identify the truths about yourself, others, and the world that were stolen from you when you were hurt. To often the counseling process stops with the “heal the wounds” step. At WPA Counseling, we are interested in you believing and living your truth.
