Therapy and Counseling Services

KKJ highly values the need to balance acceptance with hard work when striving to make important life changes. We also understand how family dynamics shape how we choose relationships and deeply affect our own sense of self within relationships.

We use an active, problem solving approach in therapy to help you develop a plan for change. KKJ highly values the mind-body connection. This can be explored in a variety of ways in therapy including health and stress management techniques, and collaboration with other health care and holistic providers.
 

The key to successful therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. 

We strive for authenticity, warmth, and empathy so that you can flourish in, and outside of, therapy.

Everyone is different and needs an individualized therapy or counseling approach. At KKJ, we focus on the specific problems that affect your daily life, using well-known, evidenced based techniques.

While techniques are important, authenticity, warmth, and empathy are integral for people to flourish in, and outside of, counseling. We strive to treat the whole person—mind, body and spirit—to help individuals and families decrease stress, enhance relationships, and realize overall greater health and well-being.

Working with children and teens in therapy requires a delicate balance between confidentiality for the youth and a good working alliance with parents. We offer separate parent therapy sessions for feedback and guidance as well as a brief check-in time with parents at the beginning or end of a child session.

With delicate issues at stake, therapy must be a good fit between professional and client. If KKJ is not the right fit for you, we can make referrals based on our knowledge and working relationships with others in the community.
