The Future Depends On What We Do In The Present
The pessimist complains about the wind.
The optimist expects the wind to change.
The leader adjusts the sails.

Life Solutions Professional Counseling Center opened in 2007 and since that time, has been providing counseling to individuals, couples, families, and groups from ages three to adult through difficult times in their lives. We have over thirty years of combined experience and opened on the principle of providing people with skills and techniques that are needed in order to make it through trying times in their lives from the comfort of a smaller, relaxing, and more personal setting. We hold true to that counseling principle to this day. We encourage self-improvement so that you will be able to use these skills, once learned, on your own.
Since opening, we have expanded to add a wellness approach and are proud to have several experienced counselors on our team with the same philosophy that Life Solutions was built on and expertise in many different areas. We have also added college degree qualified Life Coach Counselors and a Group Counselor. As a result of our expansion, Life Solutions is located in The Historic Hopwood School Building on Paul Street in Hopwood, Pennsylvania, providing comfort and relaxation within our facility from the waiting area to our counseling rooms. While waiting for your appointment, we encourage you to relax and help yourself to a cup of complimentary coffee in our kitchenette area. We are honored to be able to serve the population of our area and provide a choice of services to address most needs. You are valued to us from the moment you give us a call, to the moment of discharge. We are dedicated to you as the individual and work with you to serve your needs and improve the quality of your life.
What You Can Expect To Experience When You Come Into Our Office
All of our counselors move through the counseling process at your pace. We understand how difficult it can be to take the step into counseling. Once you are ready to share your journey with us, we are here to help you. We have found that this approach helps with your comfort levels and allows us to help you from a more open and comfortable place.
We are here for you. Whatever it is that you need is where we go with you. The more open and comfortable that you feel with us, the more we are going to be able to help you. That is the environment that we create for you with our personal, peaceful, relaxing, and intimate facility.
Our counselors meet you where you are so you can make the best decision for you that fits into your life and your lifestyle. We don't tell you what you should or should not do. We help you to process the information that you have thoroughly so that you can make the best decision for you, for yourself.
We value individual characteristics and believe that those traits are what makes you who you are. We don't work to change who you are. We work to change the ways that you respond to situations in your life to make them the most productive for you.
Sometimes your situation looks overwhelming and doesn't feel manageable to you. We help you to break a bigger, overwhelming picture into smaller manageable parts so that you can feel a sense of achievement and accomplishment to move from feeling stuck, to moving forward again.
We help you to balance your everyday stressors by looking at life as a journey and not just a starting point and a destination or goal. The journey provides us lessons both good and bad that gives meaning to your start point and end point. We help you to see the importance of not missing your journey.
There are times that we get so overwhelmed, that we forget to recognize what is going on right in front of us. We help you to remind yourself to be in the moment. While being lost in our thoughts or the process, we are missing out on the experience of what's happening here and now. These are your moments too. Reminding yourself and allowing yourself to be in the moment, gives you the opportunity to experience the here and now to its fullest. This is your journey.
When it comes to medication, we like to work with you first without the use of medication. We can help with a variety of skills and techniques to get you through many of your difficult times successfully without the use of medication. However, we have the knowledge and experience to know when medication is needed and necessary and have the ability to refer you to a facility for medication management while continuing to receive therapy with us.
Treatment plans are designed with your recommendations to fit your needs and therapies that will best help you to resolve your difficulties with real techniques that you can use within your own environment.
You and your needs are always what is most important to us.
