Sioux Falls Psychological Services, our counseling clinic here at Sioux Falls Seminary, has a clear and meaningful mission: we meet you where you are…offering hope. We offer hope through different specialized clinics as well as through training for counseling professionals. Our team of 16 therapists is committed to serving those who walk through our doors no matter who they are and no matter what issues they have. Our faith informs our work and reminds us that hope is inherent in being created. Helping others discover hope in the midst of dire and painful circumstances and emotional struggle is our passion. The breadth of knowledge and skill in our team is significant.
One of our specialized clinics is the recently established Child & Adolescent Therapy Clinic (CATC) which meet the needs of our youngest clients. Particular expertise in the assessment of ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders has been needed in the Sioux Falls area. We now provide that service. Many area professionals refer to Sioux Falls Psychological Services and the Child and Adolescent Therapy Clinic for those assessments and follow up treatment. We also provide a Kapable Kids therapy group for school-aged children impacted by domestic violence. Our therapists who serve through the Child and Adolescent Therapy Clinic are passionate about the needs and struggles of children and adolescents.
Our training clinic, also known as the Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic (MFT), offers therapy services provided by Sioux Falls Seminary’s graduate-level counseling students who are under the supervision of licensed professionals. The MFT Clinic meets the needs of people in our community who are without mental health care insurance and/or are financially unable to afford the cost of therapy. We have been providing this low cost care for nearly 25 years, and we have served thousands at little or no cost.
Our commitment to the integration of psychology and theology, to expertise in all that we do, and to the educational context within Sioux Falls Seminary, is now reflected in our offer of workshops to other area counselors and therapists. Our intent, through two to three sessions a year, is to meet the needs of professionals in our region by addressing relevant topics and providing learning opportunities.
These are exciting days! We couldn’t be more excited about joining God in mission by meeting individuals in their places of need and by offering them hope.
