My goal in counseling is to help you find harmony in your life. I work with adolescents and adults in individual, marriage and family counseling.
My approach is both eclectic and holistic. I believe the most effective change occurs when a person is healthy in the physical, mental, relational, emotional, and spiritual areas of life. I assist clients in evaluating and balancing these areas.
Though taking the crucial first steps toward growth is scary, I am here to help guide you towards freedom and hope. I especially focus on the spiritual component of life and it's integration to the soul of every person.
Take the first step to help. Call or Email Eric Joseph (Joey) Staples now - (417) 720-2101
