Finding Your Way Psychological Services’ goal for counseling is simple: it is for you to become more mentally healthy and a more whole person who is able to enjoy life at your best. We use an approach grounded in research that puts you first and we work with you to create a treatment plan that you agree with. We also believe you can develop skills to better manage mental health concerns and sometimes need guidance and someone to come alongside you and help you find your way in the complexity of life’s issues.
