Stepping Stones of LIFE, LLC, (SSOL) is a mental, substance abuse, and health counseling/education center focusing on teen mothers, troubled children/youth, adults, and senior citizens with disabilities. SSOL uses an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to wellness by emphasizing to each individual the model of “stepping stones.” These sets of stones must be followed in order to coexist with others and freely navigate through LIFE to become a contributor to the community and the world. These stones are exemplified as Love, Integrity, Faith, and Endurance. Without them, there is no hope or leg to stand on! Our center will differ from the traditional counseling practice because of our added personal touch and extensive tailored approach to providing effective evidence-based therapy. All client interventions will affect positive change by invoking the core values of empathy, warmth, and genuineness as the answer to the immediate call “SOS” termed “Save our Souls” in treatment.
Principles that guide and motivate our every decision — as a business and as practitioners:
We provide expert and informed services to all of our clients. As a result, each SSOL counselor invests regularly in continuing education. We are kept abreast of the latest news, interventions, and information regarding mental health, substance abuse, addictions, vocational planning, aptitude testing, community service, and client and caregiver support through extensive research, professional networking, and attending workshops, to name a few.
We believe that every man, woman, or child is unique and, as a result, consultation and strategic relationships are necessary for change to occur. We value relationships inside and outside of the office. If clients are amenable, we eagerly partner with medical professionals, family members, school personnel, friends, and other clinicians to form a triage team for the development of effective treatment plans and successful outcomes.
We at SSOL are genuinely interested in getting to know our clients. They are our first priority. As a result, we effectively use client-centered therapy to help clients understand who they are and why they are hurting. Before a diagnosis or symptom management process is discussed, we confer with the client to learn their view on life and their perception of their current state of mind and health.
We consider where the client and/or their families are in life and work to propel the individual to a more positive and attainable future with meaning and purpose. We are familiar with the trauma and setbacks that can occur within a client’s life, and for this reason, we can aid the client in identifying the beauty that can result from perseverance and growth after mastering the stones of life. We trust that change is possible, that better is around the corner, and we lean heavily into that truth when working with clients to conceive and follow through with their goals.
We acknowledge that mental health impacts every part of life. People are as complex as the obstacles that bring them into therapy. As a result, SSOL counselors will take the time to conduct a therapy assessment and provide treatment that takes the whole person into account — physically, spiritually, relationally, emotionally, and cognitively.
In all sincerity, we take pride in creating the kind of environment that feels trustworthy and safe. Our lobby and offices are strategically warm and comfortable — like living rooms instead of doctor's offices. In practice, we are clinically minded but distinctly conversational.
