Transformative Growth Counseling also includes our Foundation (a 501c3) which works to provide private and community-wide mental health services.

We are an evidence based practice that believes in using more than just observation alone. We utilize psychological testing, client self-report surveys/scales and client narratives,  in addition to the therapist’s observations and assessment. Counselors at TGC only use therapeutic treatments that have been scientifically researched and validated as effective.

Counseling has over 100 years of research that shows many positive outcomes for people who attend therapy, including: Decreasing of symptoms, reduction in stress, development of healthier living and self care strategies, improved resilience to life’s stressors, better personal insight to one’s psychological processes, repaired bonds in relationships, better sex life, and feeling more in control of emotions… among many other things!
