Mission

Partnered Paths opened in NC in the summer of 2016 and in Michigan in 2021 with the goal of supporting clients throughout their healing journey. Partnered Paths works with individuals & couples. Premarital counseling support for new parents utilizing the Bringing Baby Home curriculum is offered as well.

Our mission is to help support clients in their next steps of their journey regardless of where this may be. This includes thoroughly assessing the issues a client would like to work on, working together and setting clear goals for therapy and/or workshops, and developing a treatment plan for counseling that respects the client's needs as well as aligns with current research. Evidence shows that one of the most powerful forces of change in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client, and it is extraordinarily important at Partnered Paths that each client feel empowered within that relationship to make the long-lasting change they desire. Therapists will check in frequently with clients to see how clients feel about their progress towards goals and to ensure the the therapist and client relationship is on track so that the client feels supported.

Comfort & Convenience
Comfort & Convenience

You can attend online therapy sessions from the comfort of your own home at the times that are the most convenient for you. For many, it can be difficult to schedule consistent in-person sessions around work and family life. The flexibility of having sessions from home can enable you to have more frequent sessions to make the progress you’re looking for without breaks in treatment. Additionally, some clients find it more comfortable to share intimate details from the privacy of their home.

Access to Advanced Training

Online therapy can make treatment with a therapist with advanced training in topics relevant to your needs possible when it would not have been before. Whether it’s due to limited mobility, living in a rural area, being in a long-distance relationship, or due to frequent travel, being able to attend an in-person session with a therapist with a specialization has not always been possible for everyone.

Flexibility for Families
Flexibility for Families

Many wonder if children can be at home during sessions. It depends on the age and development stage of the child and also the nature of what the client’s goals are. It’s extremely important that a child’s physical and emotional safety are always considered first. However, many clients find it possible to schedule sessions during nap time, after bedtime, or during a time when their child is able to be independent.
