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

The most reliable predictor of successful counseling is not necessarily the technique or even the counselor; we focus on the quality of the alliance between client and clinician.  Better alliances result in better outcomes when working with individuals, couples and families, children and adolescents, and mandated/involuntary clients.

The average recipient of therapy is better off than 80 percent of those with similar problems that do not find the right match for a counselor.  According to the most thorough reviews of the empirical literature, the counselor has to:

  • Like, value, and care for the client (known as the “real” relationship, it contributes more to outcome than relational elements associated with technique)
  • Communicate understanding of and compassion for the client
  • Collaborate with the client regarding the focus and goals for treatment
  • Seek feedback regarding the client’s experience of the alliance and progress

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.

ENJOY HUMOR?

Researchers in the healthcare field established connections between humor and laughter, 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 relationships. 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.
