Professional Counseling

We provide out-patient counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. Whether you need to talk through your fears, manage your stress, deal with conflict with family members, or problem solve the situation, the counselors at Dirkse Counseling and Consulting, Inc. will provide you with a safe space to open up, share your experience and develop a plan to get you through this time. Through understanding and skilled guidance, you will move closer to the peace and stability that you desire.

In today’s climate it is likely that you are experiencing a heightened state of emotional stress due to the impact of COVID-19; Lay-offs, school closures, social distancing, isolation, and fear of the impact of the virus on ourselves and our loved ones are just a few of the factors that we are all facing. During this time, a little help can go a long way.
