WELCOME

Our goal is to create a safe supportive environment to explore trauma by teaching skills, providing space for exploration, utilizing trauma informed care, creating integrity, and instilling empowerment.

HONORING YOUR CHALLENGES

We first wanted to thank you for your interest in using Rising Phoenix Counseling Services, LLC for your mental health needs. It is truly an honor to be considered to be a part of your treatment team on your journey of mental wellness. We believe in offering a transparent lens to treatment, collaborative relationships, and committed providers who can help you along the way.

There are many times in which we have the ability to solve our life challenges without professional guidance. Other times, we can get stuck and help is needed to learn new ways of being. For many people, asking for help can be a very challenging process. The benefits that can be gained by this decision can create lasting change that lasts a lifetime. As a trauma informed practice, we will help guide you in starting the process in a gentle fashion and we use the most up to date trauma treatment modalities to help along the way. We promise to honor your challenges with the utmost respect and take as much time as you need. According to the research, the best predictor of change was not in the form of counseling done but instead found in the strength of the therapeutic relationship. We believe in earning the right to hear your story through the development of our relationship with you.

Finally, there is no expert and client in our office, only two people who together create the environment for healing, growth, and new possibilities. We will explore how the process feels for you and if there is anything that we can do in order to make this experience as beneficial as possible. By opening that communication, it allows us to show up in the way that feels the best for you. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

RISING ABOVE THE ASHES: A Statement from the Clinical Director

“As I was creating Rising Phoenix Counseling Services, LLC, I wanted to create a place of healing that is both symbolic and honors the specific challenges associated with choosing the path of growth and healing. During this search, I decided on the idea of the phoenix as it is a symbol of integrity, beauty, virtue, grace, and power. The phoenix is caught within a cycle of death and rebirth as they have to burn down in order to rise above the ashes into something new and beautiful. It has been said that the phoenix takes information from their surroundings and integrates it with their internal process by increased awareness. This is how I see the process of growth after trauma, with every challenge we can make a choice to either allow it to consume us or we can take the gifts into the next chapter of our life. We can never forget or change what has happened to us in the past, but we can allow that experience to forever change us in a healthy and positive way. No matter what the challenge in your life currently, we are here to support you in accessing hope and igniting your ability to rise anew.” –Sarah May Eilertson, LPC, NCC, CETP
