  • Short Term Services

    We recognize that EMERGE offices may not be local to all who wish to utilize our services.  For this reason we have made Short Term Services available.  For this service, those who live out of town can come to any of our locations to receive accelerated counseling services over the course of 3-4 days.  

    Psychological testing will be done in order to best assist the clinician to establish a baseline in which to work from. This helps our counselors to quickly define the areas of personal strengths and growth areas.  

    EMERGE calls this specialized service Short Team Evaluation and Psychotherapy (STEP). 

    EMERGE strives to make you feel at home during your important journey to health, hope and healing. 

    *Hotel Discounted Rates have been established. Please contact our Client Registration Specialists to be emailed a list of suggested hotels to utilize during your stay. 

  • Online counseling
