CATHERINE J. HUNTER & ASSOCIATES, LTD., has prided itself with being able to serve our clientele’s personal needs for psychiatric referral by being independently owned and operated. Our treatment team works effectively with our client’s support system which may include school, workplace and family physicians in order to assure appropriate assessment and treatment. This may include further assessment for diagnostic clarity through psychological testing and evaluation; medical evaluation and assessment; ongoing supervision by licensed psychiatrists, medical physician examination; and recommendation for hospitalization during acute crises and emergencies. Collaborative work with the client’s support system is also done throughout treatment and in discharge planning.
OUR MISSION IS…
…Healing Hearts Through the Power of Jesus Christ. As a Christian practice, we believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only way to salvation and it is by His death on the cross that grants us eternal life. We believe that only through a personal and adult decision to invite Jesus into our lives as leader, Lord and Savior can we enter heaven. We believe that it is through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Father that we receive the strength, wisdom, and power from the Holy Spirit to heal and grow in our lives.
As Christians we value life as a gift and uphold the individual, family, and marriage as sacred. We build lasting commitments and are devoted to each other based on the principles of Scripture and the Commandments of God as stated in the Bible. We believe there are biblically supported reasons for divorce and can help an individual carefully discern their decision to stay in the marriage, separate or divorce.
As a practice, we realize that every person has their own experience with “religion” and spiritual practices and we do not discriminate based on our theology. We do counsel and treat those who are not practicing in a faith and welcome the opportunity to serve them. Only if our clients ask, will our clinician incorporate faith, scripture and prayer in the counseling session. We respect our clients’ individual religious practices as well as those clients who prefer a secular counseling experience.
