MOUNTAIN VIEW COUNSELING & WELLNESS CENTER WELCOMES YOU!
A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
According to the American Psychological Association, “Psychologists help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives.” We believe that counseling is not a one size fits all practice. Various interventions and treatment modalities will be utilized on an individualistic basis to best fit the needs for each client, working with individuals from childhood into adulthood.

The therapeutic relationship
We fully believe that the therapeutic relationship is imperative in order to have success in any type of counseling. It is important for there to be a sense of safety and comfortability in order for growth and change to occur.
