Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, we are here for support. Our calling is to help individuals find and focus on their true potential.
Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in our sessions, we promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. We have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
Our pasts may define us, but we define our future today. Together, we can embrace a brighter tomorrow.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Victory Counseling now offers Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). IOP is an outpatient treatment program recommended and used for substance use disorders as an alternative to inpatient rehabilitation treatment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox. IOP can also enable people in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox or completion of inpatient rehabilitation, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life. We will use The Matrix Model, which is a structured treatment experience where clients will attend 2 to 3, 3-hour sessions, per week, for 16 weeks and incorporates individual, group, family, and social sessions. If you are interested, please reach out to us for more information.
Psychiatric Medication Management
Some mental health disorders are best treated with counseling, however, there are other disorders that can be effectively treated through therapy and medication management. The most successful interventions combine the two. Psychiatric medications take careful medication management where the patient and psychiatric nurse practitioner work together to ensure that the medication is working effectively and safely. Contact our office today to schedule a Psychiatric Assessment to determine if medication management is right for you. *This office does not prescribe any controlled substances.
Peer Support Services
Peer Support Specialists are individuals in recovery from substance use disorder(s) or other mental health conditions, complete required training, and use their own recovery experiences to help others with similar conditions. Peer Support Specialists can help guide clients toward identification and achievement of specific goals that are defined by the client and specified in the treatment plan. Peer Support Specialists do not replace counselors, but offer additional options to help clients in their own efforts to recover, as part of the treatment team.
