As we find our way through the journey of life, many of us come to a place where we wish we had a guide to help see us through.
Whether we’re going through hard times, battling mental illness, grieving the loss of a loved one, or adjusting to a big change, talking with a professional can be a welcomed help and an incredible tool.
At Assurance Healthcare & Counseling Center, we’ve built a program to help minimize the typical roadblocks to mental health.
Our counseling program offers great access to mental health services and minimizes the cost barrier of therapy.
How does it work?
Here are the counseling components that are included with membership:
- All Mental Health Classes / Webinars / Seminars
- Introduction to Counseling Workshop: Preface Webinar
- Twelve (12) in-person counseling sessions with the lifetime of your membership
- Visits 13 and beyond are available for a small office visit charge (currently $30)
We highly recommend that anybody interested in counseling attend our Preface workshop. Those that attend Preface are given priority for in-person counseling, as the contents of that workshop (currently given as a webinar) set us up for the counseling process.
However, if someone is interested in one-on-one counseling before attending Preface, simply give our office a call (509-823-4650) and we’ll place you on our waiting list for the next available intake appointment with one of our counselors.
Who are your therapists, and what kind of therapy do you offer?
Holly Porter, LMHC
I am a psychotherapist with a license in mental health counseling (LH 60604133). After majoring is psychology at the University of Washington, I completed my masters degree at Central Washington University. The majority of my clinical work has been in general practice with teenagers, adults, and couples. While I primarily integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), my clinical approach is also deeply influenced by existential and psychodynamic theories. Throughout the course of therapy, I strongly emphasize introspective, insight-oriented processing.
Meredith Cramer, LMHCA
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington (MC 60997209). After completing a Bachelor of Science in Primate Behavior, a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology, and a Minor in Psychology from Central Washington University, I completed my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2019. I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults and have experience providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques and interventions, while also adopting a strong Person-Centered philosophy. As such, I believe that the primary mechanism for change is dependent on fostering a strong therapeutic alliance where the focus is placed on building a meaningful and empathetic relationship with my clients.
