THE TRANSFIGURATION COUNSELING TEAM
At Transfiguration Counseling, we believe that the therapy space is sacred space. The journey of transformation and healing that happen in therapy is an unfolding process of growth that the client and clinician embark on together. We are passionate about this and we emphatically declare that your story matters.
Collectively, we offer over a decade of experience and we specialize in a wide range of mental health concerns and therapy approaches. What truly inspires and motivates us is seeing clients grow – spiritually, mentally, and emotionally – and embark on the journey that leads to healing and recovery.
