As practical, caring, solution-focused therapists, WPA professionals seek to provide support and practical feedback to help clients answer questions about and resolve current problems, long-standing difficulties. With sensitivity and compassion, they help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues in a context of respect, compassion, support, safety, and confidentiality. Providers at WPA provide caring, competent, faith-affirming mental health and relationship care.
Psychologists and therapists at WPA utilize "best practices" in the field to diagnose, treat, and help clients maintain their lives symptom free. Goals of the practice are to assist clients in understanding and eliminating problems of depression, anxiety, anger, and relationship conflicts and to give them the tools to resolve practical issues and to live fulfilling lives - independent of therapy. Using practical, effective, Christian-faith-affirming, research-based approaches, they draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. They are known to work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals. With a strong commitment to the Bartlesville and surrounding areas, WPA provides services to clients on sliding scale and pro bono bases as well.
