Individual and Family Counseling
Wellspring Counseling offers full therapy services provided by a diverse professional staff. Our therapists use a variety of techniques that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), experiential art therapies and equine-assisted therapy. Wellspring’s holistic approach to mental health encourages clients to address the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, behavioral and spiritual aspects of their lives. One of the most frequent questions we receive is how to pay for counseling services. In response to this great need, Wellspring launched its Financial Aid Fund, through which we are able to provide quality counseling and help individuals and families who want help but may not have the financial ability to pay full counseling fees.
The Financial Aid funds helps Wellspring give away as much as possible so that no one needs to be denied counseling because of financial distress. We are committed to help hurting individuals and encourage donations for our Financial Aid fund to help those with limited resources.
Wellspring's goal is to be within 30 minutes of any resident of Miami Dade County. We do not want commuting to be a barrier for anyone seeking mental health counseling services. Currently, Wellspring has 7 locations across Miami Dade County, and we are raising funds to open more.
Education & Radio
Wellspring Counseling aims to make quality Christian behavioral health content accessible through community education and radio shows. Wellspring believes that engaging the community in learning more about mental health provides a space for dialogue and increased awareness. As we restore hearts and minds, Wellspring is committed to reduce the shame and secrecy associated with mental illness. We currently broadcast weekly from the community radio station Life FM 90.9 to provide mental health education to our community. Through conversations, interviews, resources, and wellness talks, we aim to promote awareness and dialogue through education. Our goal is to raise $16,800 to keep our program on the air.
We’ve been able to meet more needs by having more therapists available in more locations in 2018. As Wellspring continues to grow, there is a need to invest in the organization to keep up with the growth. Funds raised through Give Miami Day will be used to invest in a new electronic medical records software to keep up with the growth of our organization.
