Affinity- a natural liking, an easy relationship. Here at Affinity, we know that healing begins as we find someone able to hear our story without judgment. We all deserve to find that special person who likes us even when our journey has left us unable to like ourselves. Affinity was established with the principle of compassion, quality, and a commitment to hope and healing.
We are proudly commited to affirming all who may enter our doors.
Literally! Counseling is great, but not everyone has the words to express themselves. At Affinity Counseling, we have tools to help bridge that language gap. Play Therapy is a wonderful tool to help kids express themselves in their natural language. We understand that counseling should not be intimidating or stuffy. We speak courage. We speak hope. We speak your language.
Affinity Counseling Center was created with an understanding that you deserve the best. It is the desire to establish an agency based on uncompromisingly good therapy delivered in a comfortable and relaxing setting.
There are those moments of tragedy that get stuck in our brains. The pain weaves its way into our lives, creating cycles of self-destruction, isolation, and despair. The pain not only hurts us, it hurts the ones who love us. Therapy does help. Through counseling, individuals have the opportunity to recognize and change hurtful patterns of coping, allowing them to see the world again with fresh eyes.
Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a short-term (for shock trauma) or long-term (for complex trauma) naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma developed by Dr. Peter Levine and is supported by research. SE employs awareness of body sensation to help people "renegotiate" and heal rather than relive or reenact trauma.
SE's guidance of the bodily "felt sense," allows the highly aroused survival energies to be safely experienced and gradually discharged.
Play therapy provides a wonderful opportunity to create great change by allowing children to express themselves in a way they naturally relate to their world. Through symbolic play and a caring therapist, children are allowed the opportunity to express their anxieties and worries in a way that is safe and healing.
Affinity Counseling Center has trained staff to observe your child in their daycare. By seeing your child in the classroom, the therapist is able to identify trouble spots or area of concern and explore options to help your child best transition to their new setting.
