The service utilizes a team approach to help determine the most effective forms of treatment for each client. This dedicated attention in a comfortable setting helps White Oak Counseling achieve its mission to strive for excellence through superior patient treatment, education and satisfaction.

“We provide a safe and nuturing environment for individuals, couples, and families to resolve interpersonal, career and stress of life problems,” said Yarbrough. ‘We use a strengths-based approach in our work. We view counseling as a collaborative effort between the counselor and the client.”

This can be done through a number of the services available at White Oak including parent education; couple and marriage counseling; family counseling; individual counseling; psychosocial assessments; group counseling and consultation and referrals.
