Many people ask us where we got the name Cypress for our center. We discovered that Cypress trees actually grow stronger during the harshest of conditions. Stronger because of the conditions it has lived through. That symbolism was important to us as we work with clients, some of whom have come through harsh, troubling traumas. Finding their way through and discovering their own resilience reminds us of why we choose this counseling work as our life’s passion.

 
 

Our Mission

Our Mission at The Cypress Counseling Group is to facilitate emotional health and healing through true connection and to allow clients to experience authentic emotions through an understanding of their own emotional needs.

Our Core Values

Our first priority as therapists is to live our own lives with AUTHENTICITY by showing on the outside what we are experiencing on the inside, to allow our true experience of living and feeling to be displayed to those around us. We seek to bring authenticity into the counseling relationship to help our clients find wholeness and balance in their work towards healthy living.

COMPASSION towards our clients helps illuminate a path to healing. In the counseling relationship, compassion allows feelings to expand and allows tenderness to resurface.

We will HONOR people’s stories, both the strengths and the weaknesses, to allow real connection and emotional intimacy to be experienced.

We will strive for PRESENCE in the relationships we seek to build. Presence creates a safe place for clients to explore what is comfortable and what is feared, and allows for old wounds to be healed in a setting of care and concern.

 
We love Cypress trees because they remind us of our heroic selves. They’re standing out there on the headlands. They’re battling nature, and they survive in very, very harsh conditions.
