All of us need help at times in our lives. Sometimes challenges just become too much for us to handle on our own. HARP is here to help. Hope and Restoration Pathways provides professional Christian counseling to individuals and families who need someone to come by their side and help them through the difficulties or challenges of life. It would be our privilege to partner with you to help you find hope and restoration.
We believe that no problem is too complex for God's love to overcome. Our faith-based approach draws from traditional Christian values and beliefs in order to facilitate personal growth and healing. We rely upon sound therapeutic techniques and principles as well as proven Biblical principles to enable people to overcome their challenges with God's help. Lora Williams, the founder of HARP, has seen many peoples' lives changed over the past 20 years through this faith-based approach to counseling.
Our licensed, experienced counselors are qualified to provide services to all age groups, including children and teens. HARP counselors provide individual counseling, marriage counseling, and family counseling services for a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, traumatic life events, domestic violence, divorce, parenting, grief, substance abuse, among other issues.
HARP therapists utilize numerous therapeutic techniques in order to assist the client toward the ultimate goal of healing and restoration. The majority of adult clients will benefit from a traditional talk therapy approach to counseling. With younger clients HARP clinicians will utilize play therapy and structured activities to allow children to naturally open up and talk about their feelings. Preteens and adolescents often also respond well to certain forms of play therapy. For adults who find verbal expression of their emotional struggles too painful, HARP clinicians may utilize art therapy modalities. Application of scripture to specific areas of need is especially helpful as well as prayer for the client offered by the clinician.
HARP's office is currently located in Clayton, North Carolina, but will soon be moving to Garner, near the new Cabellas, a short drive from most places in Raleigh and the surrounding cities. We serve individuals from Johnston, Wake, and Harnett counties. Our Clayton office is easy to get to from many locations within the cities of Garner, Raleigh, Cary, Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs, Wendell, Knightdale, and Smithfield.
At HARP we believe that each person is like a hand-crafted stringed instrument uniquely created by God to make beautiful music with their individual song. Sometimes our instrument ends up with some broken strings. Our hope is that HARP can help repair those broken strings to enable peoples' lives to make beautiful music again.
