Who We Are
YMJ Counseling and Consulting is a voluntary, long standing agency that provides short term counseling, referrals and follow - up services to individuals who have personal and work-related problems. We started out in 2007 working with severe and persistent mentally ill adults who were faced with a broad and complex body of issues. We have tackled homelessness, substance abuse disorders, case management issues, and we continue to provide services to this vulnerable population.
Our team of clinicians have responded to critical incidents such as workplace violence, trauma and other emergency response situations. We provide positive solutions and support during the most challenging periods of our client’s lives. We maintain a collaborative approach which integrates contemporary services delivered to meet the needs of each of our clients.
We also work in a consultative role with Directors, managers and supervisors to address employees and organizational challenges and needs. We support a neutral balance in tough situation resulting in a mindful, compassionate, and non-judgmental, therapeutic process. A large part of our practice is focused on resolving challenges, creating & supporting conscious relationships, per- psychotherapy, referrals, or small group work.
