Serenity Springs was borne of a desire to expand the counseling firm of Rob Reinhardt, LPC, PA into a comprehensive wellness center. As holistic practitioners, Rob and his colleagues understand the importance of treating whole people rather than isolated “problems” or “issues”. Integral to this process is collaboration with other wellness professionals to address, holistically, other areas health. We believe that people must work toward and maintain physical, mental, and social health in order to achieve true wellness. Collaboration and alliances with other wellness professionals allow us to all work under one roof, providing convenient access to services for our clients.
About Serenity Springs
About Counseling and Wellness
Counseling can take many forms and is highly dependent on the relationship and trust built between client(s) and counselor. It is important to get to know a counselor and his or her approach, so that you can make informed decisions. Also, it is important that counseling sessions take place in a comfortable, confidential environment.
People attend counseling to address a vast array of personal, social, relationship, academic, and employment related concerns. Just as most people don’t only go to a Medical Doctor for severe emergencies, counseling isn’t only for those facing extreme challenges. Mental wellness is as important as physical healt,h and while Serenity Springs advocates seeking treatment when in distress, we also encourage proactive and preventative measures, as well.
What to Expect
While each counselor uses different approaches and techniques, they have some standards in common. Initial counseling sessions always involve an assessment. Much like a first visit with a physician, the first session involves completing forms and sharing background information. Because so many factors go into who we individuals are, it is important to discuss any information relevant to reasons for attending counseling, as well as detailing any personal goals.
Since every situation is different, the assessment period varies though typically lasts from one to three sessions. This assessment period is also a time to ask questions and for you and your counselor to decide if you can work successfully together. Once the initial assessment is complete your counselor will work with you to establish goals and to discuss all available options in achieving them. These goals will be discussed and evaluated on a regular basis to ensure that the therapeutic process is having its intended effect.
Often the challenges and goals discussed in counseling cross into multiple areas of health and wellness. Our counselors strive to treat people from a holistic perspective and can provide referrals and recommendations for other help and care that can help you achieve your goals. Through our alliance and network of like-minded, professional providers we can help you strive for and maintain “whole wellness”.
“Serenity” was chosen as a defining goal to work along a path of wellness. When well, our bodies are in a state of calm and peace, even amidst life’s challenges. Being able to address those challenges from a state of mindfulness is the goal.
“Springs” contains both a geographical and philosophical expression of our work. An integral part of local history, the waters of the historic town of “Fuquay Springs” were revered for their healing powers. Surrounded by towns like Holly Springs and Willow Spring, it was natural to incorporate this sense of water from the earth into our name.
In addition, this word combination conjures images of wellness emerging in people as they work toward their life and health goals. Just as water springs forth from the earth, so can wellness spring forth from the individual.
