Providence Counseling Group opens Natchitoches office

Elizabeth Peterson-Providence


Providence Counseling Group provides counseling and therapy services for children, adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups in Shreveport and now, in Natchitoches in its new location at 915 Third Street.

The motto: PER ANGUSTA AD AUGUSTA means, THROUGH DIFFICULTIES TO GREAT THINGS. This is what the therapists and staff of Providence Counseling Group believe counseling is all about.

“We work as a team,” said Elizabeth Peterson. “We strive to help our clients navigate through difficult circumstances and personal struggles to reach their full potential.”

The benefits of counseling are far reaching and exceed what most expect. While research has shown that counseling is effective in helping people manage and overcome depression, anxiety, grief, relationship problems, etc… the benefits extend far beyond these traditional ones. Counseling has proven to be remarkably effective in helping individuals struggling with common, every day issues such as life changes, interpersonal conflict, low self-esteem, work stress, and difficulty choosing a college major/career path, to name a few.

“Our experienced clinicians draw from a variety of therapeutic techniques and approaches to assist clients in achieving their treatment goals,” said Peterson.

Counseling provides individuals with a safe and objective environment where they can openly express their thoughts and feelings. Counselors and their clients often explore more than the presenting problem, ultimately resulting in the clients gaining insight into themselves, personal empowerment, and self growth.
