Life can be overwhelming - especially right now. Whether you're facing a recent loss, fear of the unknown, challenges in relationships, finances, family or career; or maybe you just need a little encouragement from an understanding and empathetic counselor, Lake Area Counseling is here for you.

We don't believe in band-aids, cover-ups, denial of problems, or making excuses for ourselves and others. We shoot straight, focus on creative problem solving, and finding real and practical solutions. We know the pain of past trauma, but we don't stay there; today is all we have and the future is what we make of it. We believe in moving forward.
We are relationship-focused. We know relationships brought the wounds and relationships will bring the healing. We believe in coping skills and positive thinking; but we believe in healing and supportive relationships even more.
We believe in Hope Unlimited.
