STCC's integrative therapist uses clinical tools and skills from a variety of orientations in both individual and group counseling sessions. The main orientations STCC works from are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Reality Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

Our metaphorical therapist has a philosophy that one size does not fit all. STCC believes in meeting and supporting the clients where they are, instead of placing them in the therapist's box of comfort. During therapy, our main priority is to create a safe, non-judgmental, and honest atmosphere, which is conducive to our relationship and client growth. Time together will focus on addressing your presenting concerns to build better self-awareness and self-acceptance. This allows you to make your current best, better. Our relationships are client-centered, and we will work together to formulate measureable and attainable goals that will be assessed regularly during each session.

STCC does not prescribe medication. If symptoms present that require medicine, the appropriate psychiatric or medical referral will be coordinated for that diagnosis. It is important to note that a diagnosis is a description of a pattern of behaviors and it does become a part of your permanent record.

STCC supports and believes in the clients we work with. We believe each individual has the tools necessary to overcome his/her adversities. Our goal is to help you recognize how to use those tools. We believe in the sanctity and dignity of human life, where all people have meaning and purpose, and no individual is without true value regardless of age, sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, socioeconomic status, past mistakes or religion.

STCC believes in equality, fairness and respecting all individuals regardless of their circumstance. We are guides, rather than a judges. It is always the client, not the therapist, who must make the decisions regarding his/her life. The grounded counselor shows the way and provides the tools; the client must then make the choice to apply the tools and walk toward their future.
