What to Expect

Life Restore


When you first reach out to Life Restore Counseling & Training LLC, our scheduler will call you back to arrange a convenient appointment. You will be asked to determine which counselor you would like to see and what day of the week and time is most convenient for you. You will be asked to complete some forms (click here for forms). You can either email the
forms to us or bring them when you come for your first appointment. During your first visit, you will be given information about our services, fees, and other information that will help you feel comfortable about the process. We will explain our policies and counseling styles and provide some information to help you understand what to expect at the various stages of counseling. We will help you every step of the way, and we are there for you whether in the counseling room or by telephone whenever you need to schedule a time to visit.
The counseling process can be life-changing, and it is frequently hard because you will begin to face the challenges that are causing stress and problems in your life, but you’ll likely also discover how past hurts are still affecting your current behavior and decisions.
You will not have to face these challenges alone, though, because we will be there to guide, encourage, and embolden you along the way.
Counseling will help you better understand the past, embrace the present, and have hope for the future.




                    First Session is Free!

   Most clients begin the counseling process with weekly sessions, then after a few weeks change to every other week, and then monthly as they begin to believe they have reached goals, improved coping skills, strengthened relationships, and reduced or eliminated unhealthy behaviors.

In your one-on-one sessions with John Gingles or Janie Landry, you will work collaboratively with your counselor to address the issues that initially caused you to seek help. Sometimes therapy will bring other concerns to light. We will help you gain an understanding of these issues, learn to challenge negative habits/behaviors, practice on remaining focused in the present moment, and support you in your efforts to become more self-aware.
Individual sessions are generally 60 minutes.
