At Gardenia Grace Counseling, we are passionate about helping individuals navigate life's challenges and discover their inner strengths. Although we specialize in working with children and teens, we work with adults also. Our approach to counseling is rooted in empathy, compassion, and a genuine desire to make a positive impact on the lives of our clients. We believe in creating a safe and nonjudgmental environment where individuals can freely express themselves and explore their thoughts and emotions. We strive to build strong therapeutic relationships based on trust, respect, and collaboration. We are here to listen, support, and guide clients as they navigate their personal journeys towards healing, growth, and self-discovery. Through evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and play therapy techniques, we work along side our clients to develop practical strategies and coping mechanisms. Our goal is to empower individuals to overcome challenges, build resilience, and enhance their overall well-being. We understand that seeking counseling can be a courageous step, and we are committed to providing a comfortable and confidential space for clients to explore their concerns. We believe that everyone has the ability to create positive change in their lives, and are dedicated to helping clients tap into their inner resources to achieve their goals. Whether you or your child are struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, or any other challenges, we are here to support you on the journey towards a happier and more fulfilling life. Together, we can work towards building a stronger foundation for your mental, emotional, and relational well-being. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you or your child and help you navigate life's ups and downs. Please feel free to reach out and schedule a free phone consultation. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Alex Henderson is the founder and owner of Gardenia Grace Counseling, LLC.
