PROTECT
YOUR MARRIAGE

Blair Counseling and Mediation works to provide tools that can be used to save relationships.

PROTECT
YOUR CHILDREN

Kids are deeply affected by adult or child depression, anxiety, behavior problems, conflict, and divorce.

REBUILD RELATIONSHIPS

Even if a marriage ends, family does not. It is time to strengthen parenting, co-parenting and spiritual relationships.

Welcome to

Blair Counseling and Mediation

We cannot underestimate the amount of stress we are under, especially during a pandemic. We are seeing the breakdown of our healthcare system and the effects of systemic racism.  Anger and conflict are all around us. We all have to start at the first step: changing ourselves.

OUR VALUES

We like, value and care for our clients. We want to communicate understanding and compassion. We need to work on your goals, not ours. Most importantly, we must get feedback regarding the client’s experience of the alliance and progress.

According to the most thorough reviews of the empirical literature, the most reliable predictor of successful counseling is not technique or the counselor; it is the quality of alliance between client and counselor. Better alliances result in better outcomes when working with individuals, couples and families, children and adolescents, and mandated/involuntary clients.

Researchers in the healthcare field have also established connections between humor and physical and mental health. Humor changes brain chemistry. It increases antibodies and blood flow and decreases stress hormones and inflammation. Humor is also about creating an optimal climate for maximizing the benefit of treatment. Healthy humor is based on respect and boosts memory and creativity. It helps release fears, anger and stress and helps us to accept mistakes and situations out of our control.

OUR SPECIALTIES

Blair Counseling and Mediation works to provide tools to all ages that can be used to save marriages, relationships, manage depression or anxiety, and help children with behavioral concerns. We are certified to complete anger evaluations and anger management sessions for court. We provide a respectful and understanding approach to addiction. Our expert mediators aim to bring peace to marriages, families, divorces, and any other dispute.  In addition to marriage and family mediation, we can provide divorce mediation, co-parenting counseling, reunification therapy and supervised visitations.

Christian, Spanish, American Sign Language and premarital services are also available. We also offer clinical supervision and underscore the importance of maintaining professional boundaries. Blair Counseling uses evidence-based practices like solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy to achieve a desirable outcome.
