    Life is often a mix of what happens to you and how you interpret and interact with your experiences. You are given the ability and power to have a say in the direction of your life. You have choice. However, you don’t always have control. A variety of circumstances can keep you from experiencing freedom and enjoyment. This is where CrossRoads can help. We work with people experiencing a broad range of symptoms from anxiety to depression, from fear to anger, and from the common pains in relationships to the ways you see yourself.  We believe that there are deeper reasons you’re experiencing problems. We want to carefully collaborate with you to build hope and purpose in your heart, your life and your relationships, restoring freedom and enjoyment.

    Take two people; each with different stories, personalities, strengths, and weaknesses. Each person having positive and negative life experiences. This is the basic makeup of marriage. It can make for a joyful partnership. It can also be a bumpy if not deeply painful path. A path that you’re not sure you signed up for and may question if you want to stay on. Honestly, there is almost always some of each in marriage. 

    We work with marriages, ones on the brink of divorce, ones that have significant brokenness and ones that just need some help getting through a tough period. We can help each of you to know and be known more completely, to grow deeper intimacy and to face each other and life, truly together.

    Families go through a lot, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed. We want to help. We want to help moms and dads love their kids well. We want to help kids relate with and honor their parents. We strive to help families see their inherent strengths as well as pursue healing and change where it's needed. Whether your family is in transition, in crisis, or just needs some guidance, we hope you'll listen to the voice inside that wonders if counseling might help. We're here to help.
  • AdolescentsOpen or Close

    Adolescence is a confusing time for young people and parents alike. As a teenager transitions from childhood to adulthood, the aim is for a young person to emerge with a healthy sense of who he is and what he can handle apart from his family. Sadly, this journey sometimes leaves teenagers feeling separated rather than supported, uncertain rather than confident, misunderstood rather than valued. At CrossRoads, we desire to help adolescents navigate the ups and downs while restoring family relationships to empower healthy emotional growth. CrossRoads has experience treating teenagers with family difficulties, eating disorders, self mutilation, and sexual trauma. If you're wondering if we can help, call us to set up a consultation session.
  • ChildrenOpen or Close

    In 2010, CrossRoads opened a play therapy room, giving our youngest clients new tools to tell their stories in a child's natural way. Play therapy invites children to make sense of their fears, traumas, and conflicts by creating miniature worlds they can manipulate to express their inner feelings. Because young children have limited patience and emotional vocabulary, play therapy is a highly effective way to engage them in the process of healing. Participating in therapy at an early age allows children to complete important developmental stages that may have been stifled by trauma, loss, and transition. CrossRoads works with children from ages 3-12.

    For more than a decade, CrossRoads' groups have helped people deal with the difficult questions of life. In the group, you will be invited to explore how your experiences have shaped who you are and how you relate. You will be encouraged to wrestle with the life themes that have kept you feeling fearful, angry, or empty. You will be equipped to pursue deeper, more real relationships.

    These groups use Dan Allender's Wounded Heart book and workbook along with supplemental materials provided by CrossRoads. While it is common for potential group members to experience anxiety about joining, it is just as common for them to be so glad they did.

  • Still WatersOpen or Close

    Our Philosophy
    In a world of brokenness and chaos, new skills are often needed to bring balance and calmness to a life of contradictions.
    Still Waters helps teach these skills based on dialectical behavior therapy with the goal of balancing competing needs and learning new ways to cope.

    An Inward Journey
    In an effort to help find peace and joy in the midst of internal chaos, CrossRoads offers
    Still Waters. Group or individual sessions are available, depending on the need that is assessed in the initial appointment. This is an inward journey; an opportunity for those with internal chaos to be lead in experiences that increase emotional regulation, mindfulness, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. You’re invited to hear ‘the quiet voice’ that often is drowned out by our own internal noise.
