Counseling Services and Coaching

Welcome to Rugged Pathways

Situations can occur in our lives that make it difficult to find a positive resolution.  Depression, stress, anxiety, grief, divorce, and trauma are just a few examples of things that can distract us from finding hope and happiness. 

Counseling can help increase self-awareness & understanding, bolster your self-esteem, reduce internal & interpersonal conflict, alter distressing moods & improve communication.

Child & Adolescents Counseling

Rugged Pathways knows healing a child's wounds takes careful and hard work, and we are here to help take those first steps.

Abuse & Trauma Counseling

It's important to recognize unhealed trauma as a dynamic force in an intimate relationship. But many overcome trauma, offering inspiration to others who have had life-altering negative experiences.

Stress, Anxiety & Depression Counseling

Everyone gets sad or worried from time to time, but for those dealing with anxiety or depression, it’s more than a feeling. It's not a sign of weakness or a negative personality. It is a major public health problem and a treatable medical condition.

Family & Individual Counseling

Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy that seeks to reduce distress and conflict by improving the systems of interactions between family members. Individual counseling is a process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life.
