Trauma-Focused: At Alpine Lakes Counseling Center we ask the question, “what happened to you?” Rather than, “what’s wrong with you?” This trauma-informed approach takes into account the neurobiological, physiological, psychological, and social impact on each individual. Therapists begin with a trauma-informed lens to provide trauma-focused care along with evidenced-based and holistic modalities tailored to each individual’s needs and goals.
Holistic: Being trauma-focused requires a holistic approach, which is to treat the whole person: mind, body, and soul. Interventions used should reflect that change occurs on many levels, not just the mind. Thus, moving away from a traditional talk-therapy model. In addition, incorporating spirituality if desired by a client to support development of inner peace, purpose, meaning, etc.
Integrity: At Alpine Lakes Counseling Center we believe integrity means to be authentic to who you are and true to your word. We value being integral to our mission, vision, and purpose.
Alpine Lakes Counseling Center encourages staff to identify, and have the courage to be integral to their personal and professional truth along with the vision, mission, and values of Alpine Lakes Counseling Center.
