    Choosing Your Path

    Saving Grace Counseling specializes in treating individuals, couples and families and we offer comprehensive services dealing with a variety of issues. In addition to the six specialities described in detail on this page we also treat; depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, marital/couple conflict, parenting, infidelity, divorce, step family dynamics, trauma, abuse, grief, pregnancy loss, infertility and more.

    Our counselors have been educated and trained in Family Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy. They are also trauma informed with upcoming training in specific trauma interventions with an understanding of how past traumas affect the present.

    At SGC we are Christian counselors and approach every situation from a faith-based perspective. But even so, we don’t force our faith on anyone, and can include it with counseling as much or as little as the client desires. It is our belief that God is the ultimate healer and that He is the one who has the answers. As such, we rely on God’s Word for wisdom, guidance and direction in all our work with clients. We also regularly pray with clients but only if they are agreeable.

    Child & Adolescent Therapy

    As they grow, children and adolescents develop social skills and emotional intelligence. But some children have trouble processing their emotions and this often leads to behavior that negatively impacts their school life, home life and overall well-being.

    Therapy offers children and adolescents a safe space to work through their thoughts and emotions. With the help of a specialized therapist, children can resolve problems, modify behaviors, and make positive and lasting changes.

    At SGC we have extensive experience working with children ages 2 – 18. We offer play therapy for younger children and talk therapy or art therapy for older children. We involve parents in the treatment process, teaching parenting skills and communication skills as a means to a more successful outcome.

    Couples Counseling

    Saving Grace Counseling uses a biblical approach to helping couples better understand the transforming power of love. Love, when properly understood, as explained in the Bible, has the power to transform your marriage. Our philosophy for helping couples whose marriage may be in crisis is to help them to learn and then to practice the fundamentals of God’s love. Properly practiced, love has the power to heal past hurts and wounds and to reconcile a marriage that is currently divided.

    Counselors, Joe and Holly Barruso, use their own personal testimony of their restored marriage to provide hope and faith to couples whose marriages are currently in crisis.

    At SGC we strongly believe that God can restore any marriage no matter how broken it may be. We believe in the healing power of love.

    Disordered Eating

    Disordered eating is not a diagnosis but a phrase used to describe a range of problematic eating behaviors that can include the more commonly known eating disorders.

    At SGC our counselors have the education as well as the personal experience to provide them with the insight necessary to distinguish disordered eating from a diagnosable eating disorder.

    With counselors on staff who have previously recovered from an eating disorder SGC is uniquely qualified as a source for healing when it comes to disordered eating.

    In addition to experienced and highly skilled counselors we also provide access to a Certified Nutrition Coach who assists clients with establishing healthy eating habits.

    Faith-Based Counseling

    Are you seeking guidance from a trained professional who will understand and respect that your number one priority is building a relationship with God?

    If so, you are definitely not alone. More and more people are looking for faith-based counseling that can heal the mind and the soul. They want to be able to not only discuss the issues they are having but also openly discuss God, the Bible, and their belief in the power of prayer.

    At SGC our counselors have personally experienced God’s healing in their own lives and are eager to share their testimonies in the pursuit of helping others to know God and His healing powers. If you see your faith in God as critical to your healing then SGC is the place for you.

    Family Counseling

    At SGC we understand the importance of family. Family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for the worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us from our family. Sadly, we also know that family can be a source of pain and even anguish.

    Very often family counseling is a necessary step on the path to healing. Our counselors are well versed in the Family Systems Approach to family therapy and have a deep understanding of the most common indicators of a family’s dysfunction.

    If you are seeking healthier, closer family relationships take the first step by contacting us today to make an appointment for family therapy with one of our skilled counselors.

    Parenting Coaching

    “If only my child had come with an instruction manual!” That’s a thought that most parents have had at some point in their lives.

    Nothing really prepares you to become a parent. Some of us were lucky enough to have parents that set a good example. But the truth is, even if you did have loving parents that did right by you 24/7, you may never be fully prepared for every challenging situation that arises in caring for your own children.

    By combining education with therapeutic insights our counselors will help coach you in your efforts to parent your child better. They will lead you down the path to a stronger, more loving and ultimately more fulfilling relationship with your child.
