Training & Consultation & Coaching

"I take pride in serving the community one person, one group or agency at a time."

The culture at the RS Counseling & Wellness Center (RSCWC) is driven by values and principles. At RSCWC, our goal is to offer a special blend of expertise and client-centered care that encourages emotional, spiritual, physical, social and intellectual wellness.

RSCWC’s core values incorporates our beliefs as a center of excellence in human service and social work. Our overarching principles of empowerment, enrichment and education combine to offer a lifelong impact to those we serve.

Our Approach:

All of our programs are based on the idea that self-esteem influences all aspects of our lives. How we think about
ourselves determines how we think about others.

If we are able to acknowledge our inherent self-worth and hold
firm in the belief that we are capable of learning, changing, and growing, then we can live more peacefully and more


Consultant & Training Services:
Created on the theory of “Empowerment,” our training and workshop programs can be adapted for the particular needs of your program or organization. We offer personal and professional development programs from an empowerment and social work foundation. Our programs are important to self-development for individuals and professionals, as well as hands on tools for their service populations.
Professional Development:
Building staff strength from an empowerment foundation can positively affect your organization’s bottom line, and
increase job satisfaction and retention—which increases workforce productivity.

One extra added benefit for
employers in training workers to build their skills in these important areas are employees will feel great about themselves and their ability to make healthy choices in their lives, resulting in a healthy workforce—another
cost-saving measure.

(CE available) Social workers participating in these courses will be eligible for continuing education clock hours based on the course description. Certificates will be awarded after completion of full training, and course evaluation.
Leadership, Business Consultant & Coaching:

Our unique focus of empowerment, enrichment, and education creates transformative experiences whether working with your executive leadership team, your supervisors and managers, staff, or the entire organization.
